I would still go with bamboo sheets, but choose a higher quality one. I've had my bamboo sheets for 3 years already, they still look like new ones, they're soft and they didn't pill. I also recommend bamboo because before I bought 100% bamboo bedding I had issues with allergies. After I bought bamboo sheets, pillows and even a bamboo mattress like this, I no longer have issues with the allergies and I sleep a lot better and wake up more refreshed. I'm not sure what was causing the allergies, but bamboo definitely fixed it.
