Does it feel like eucalyptus is the new kale?

Sijo Eucalyptus Sheets Review - The best sheet set we've ever tried? 3

I have been seeing Eucalypt everywhere! From people buying it from Trader Joe’s to hang in their showers to the luxury fabric. 

Around the end of 2016, we started hearing about eucalyptus. People were mentioning that it seemed to be the new “thing” and I wanted to know why. Eucalyptus is popular for a variety of reasons. There is a history of using it in medicine for a variety of respiratory issues. It’s also used by some people as their daily essential oil, while others use it as an air freshener or scent for clothing or pillows.

Now, people are using Eucalyptus a ton in clothing and textiles. We love Allbirds Tree Shoes (read about the differences between Allbirds Tree and Allbirds Wool) and they happen to also be made with sustainably sourced eucalyptus!

Why eucalyptus is the new “it” thing

Sijo Eucalyptus Sheets Review - The best sheet set we've ever tried? 5

Most varieties of eucalyptus are native to Australia. The main benefits of Eucalyptus for clothing and overall textiles are that it has antibacterial properties and moisture wicking built in.

That means you can wear your clothes (or in this case, sheets) every day and it won’t smell musty or bad because the antimicrobial properties prevent bacteria from growing in the fabric.

This makes it easy to change out your wardrobe without having to worry about whether or not something is still clean. It’s even better when you think about sheets. Let’s be honest, we’d all like to think we change our sheets every week – but that doesn’t always happen, does it?

Eucalyptus: A natural way to stay cool

Technically, the sheets are made from what is called eucalyptus lyocell.

Sijo Eucalyptus Sheets Review - The best sheet set we've ever tried? 6

What is Lyocell?

It’s a fabric that all starts with wood. Mostly, it’s eucalyptus wood, though oak and birch will also do. After being harvested, the wood is cut into penny-sized pieces and ground into a pulp by amine oxide chemicals before producing a sticky liquid that is pushed out through spinnerets to produce bright white fibers used to make lyocell fabric.

You can then use the lyocell fibers to make almost anything you can make with natural fibers.

Wait… is this a Lyocell or Tenecel Sheet?

This gets a little more confusing… sorry!

Lyocell is the generic name for Eucalyptus Fibers. Tencel is the brand name of the type of Lyocell. Think of Tencel like the “KLEENEX” of sheets.

All of Sijo’s products are made with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified materials, ensuring that no harmful chemicals or dyes were used in the process. They use eucalyptus lyocell fabric which is manufactured using a closed-loop process so they recycle water and solvents used to create it.

How eco-friendly is it?

Eucalyptus trees can grow quickly in relatively poor soil without the need for pesticides or irrigation; this makes them environmentally friendly when compared to conventional cotton production. Traditional cotton uses about 50% more water in comarparison

So let’s jump into what we thought about Sijo’s Eucalyptus Sheet Set. Enough talk about trees and manufacturing!

What SIJO Says about the Flat TENCEL Sheets

TENCEL™ Lyocell Flat Sheets are ultra cooling and soft. They promote healthier sleep with their antimicrobial, hypoallergenic fabric that is smooth to the touch. TENET’s sheets have a natural feel of silkiness because they are made from organic material- lyocell fiber derived from wood pulp in an environmentally conscious way. You can count on these flat sheet sets for many years’ use as they will not pill or shrink after washing as cotton bedding does!

You can also now get an awesome duvet cover now. We actually use different Gravity Blankets (read more in our Gravity Blanket Review), so we didn’t have the need to get the eucalyptus duvet cover.

However, it is available to purchase and features the same temperature regulating features that keep you cool throughout the night.

My Review of Sijo Home Eucalyptus Sheet Set

Let me start off by saying the Sijo Home Eucalyptus Flat Sheet comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The color I got is Slate.

What we love about Sijo’s Eucalyptus Sheet Set

Sijo Eucalyptus Sheets Review - The best sheet set we've ever tried? 21
  • These sheets are soooooooo soft! I was blown away by the softness of them!  We also have bamboo sheets and I expected them to be similar, but the Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set was silkier! These sheets are nothing short of amazing throughout the night!
  • The color is dark and rich and doesn’t fade or bleach.  I use benzoyl peroxide face wash and oftentimes it ruins the dye on my sheets.  This sheet set did not change color at all: no weird pink benzoyl peroxide bleach splotches!!! Also, after washing they kept their dark rich charcoal color! We have the Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set in Slate for reference. 
  • The Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set is created from sustainable materials and has no harmful chemicals. This is always important to us, but it is even more important for a material that will be touching your face and body for 8 hours a day! Its like silk… but way better.
  • The Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set is also very cooling. Colorado summers (and our dog sleeping on top of us) can get toasty and these sheets help you moderate your temperature while you sleep and keep you cool! This is great news for hot sleepers!
  • We also found the sheets to be very breathable. The naturally cool eucalyptus is pretty incredible.
  • The Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set has an elastic band around the bottom of it and stays in place!  We have had trouble with some other sheet sets that come undone at the corners when you sleep on them. This was not an issue for us with Sijo’s Eucalyptus Sheet Set Our fitted sheet stayed right where it was supposed to be. It didn’t move or slide off our bed! So congruent folks, this is HUGE!
  • The Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set held up well through multiple washes.

We love the Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet set because it’s a really nice, simple, and affordable addition to our bedroom and makes for a good night’s sleep. In addition, they are sustainably sourced – something we love.

The first time we snuggled into these sheets, we were taken aback by how soft they are- our other sheets feel scratchy in comparison. For something that will be touching your face every day, this is important.

What we don’t love about Sijo’s Eucalyptus Sheet Set

Sijo Eucalyptus Sheets Review - The best sheet set we've ever tried? 22
  • The Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set was quite wrinkled after washing when we went to put it on our bed. Since the material is really soft, the wrinkles do release when you put them on the bed.
  • If you like “stiff” sheets like the kind that you find on a hotel bed, the SIJO Eucalyptus Sheet Set will not be your preference. These sheets feel incredibly soft and almost like a mix between silk and jersey-  they won’t give you crisp corners on your bed. 

There’s not much we don’t love about the Sijo Eucalyptus Sheet Set. We do like them a lot and they’re a nice addition to our bedroom that makes for a good night’s sleep.

We felt they were a good value, too. Sheets can be expensive. For about $148 (save more with one of our Sijo Promo Codes), you can get the same sheets we did – which is expensive. However, we think it’s funny when people won’t spend money on their bed – it’s where you spend such a large amount of your tie!

The first time we snuggled into these sheets, we were taken aback by how soft they are- our other sheets feel scratchy in comparison. For something that will be touching your face every day, this is important.

A material similar to eucalyptus is bamboo.  It has similar properties to eucalyptus.  We are looking for a good bamboo sheet set to review soon!

To be honest, we never had a tencel sheet before… or even know what a Tencel sheet even was, but we’re glad that we had the chance to try it!

We also really want to try out French Linen. Sijo has a great-looking french linen sheet set, too.
