Supposedly they will keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Supposed to have a silky feel without being slippery, and are said to be antibacterial.

Anyone have any personal use information on them?

Update:

Well, I took the plunge and bought bamboo sheets, and am I ever glad I did! They are absolutely wonderful. I love the way they feel-luxuriously silky. And when I have night sweats, I don't wake up with wet sheets. They've been washed several times, and they come out of the dryer smooth. The one time I forgot about them, they were wrinkled, so I had to run them through the refresh cycle. I couldn't find any at local stores, so had to order online. Cariloha is the brand I bought. Dh really likes them as well.

Any bamboo fabric, is really just rayon made from bamboo fibers instead of wood. The process to make the fabric is very harsh, and it destroys all the antimicrobial properties.
That said, rayon is pretty soft, and silky-feeling. I still prefer cotton.
Patagonia has a PDF that talks about bamboo fabrics: https://www.patagonia.com/pdf/en_US/bamboo_rayon.pdf

I will have to look these up- never heard of them! The thought of cooler  in the summer would be great- I would probably burn up in the winter time though. lol

My Mom just gave me a set that she no longer needed.  I love them! 

My sister gave me 2 sets of bamboo dish towel for my kitchen.  They are great and I really like them.

I've seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond.  They feel nice.
