This set is crafted with a soft and comfortable fabric that our testers said felt like you’re “wrapped in a blanket of heavenly comfort.” The top sheet, fitted sheet, and pillowcases are made with the same material and come in a variety of colors.
Choosing Your Sheets
When it comes to picking the right sheets, there are several factors to consider. Among them are materials, thread count, and price.
Cotton: The most popular choice for bed linens, cotton is smooth and durable and has a natural feel against your skin. It’s also a good choice if you prefer eco-friendly fabrics.
Polyester: More affordable and shrink-resistant than cotton, polyester offers a smooth, silky feel with a synthetic-like sheen. It’s more common to find cotton and polyester blends than pure polyester sheets, but you can also find cotton-only options for a more natural feel.
Linen: A classic favorite for warm weather, linen is breathable and airy with a relaxed look. It’s softer than cotton and feels more natural against the skin, but it’s not as absorbent as eucalyptus or silk.
Flannel: A heavier, more textured sheet fabric, flannel is often brushed to enhance the softness of the fibers. Its warmth and durability make it a good pick for winter.
Organic: Be sure to look for sheets that are certified organic or made from materials that have been certified through the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS certification ensures the products meet strict guidelines, from the planting and harvesting of the fibers to the manufacturing process and even the packaging.
Bamboo: This eco-friendly material is becoming more and more popular, but it can be a bit more expensive than some other sheets. It’s a great option if you’re looking for something that’s naturally cool, odorless and antimicrobial.
Microfiber: Tiny polyester fibers that feel buttery soft and are typically inexpensive, but they can be flimsy compared to other sheet materials. They can also be prone to stains and may not hold up as well as other materials.
Jersey: Stretchy knits that feel more like a t-shirt than a sheet are often made from cotton, but you can find synthetic versions as well. They typically have performance moisture-wicking properties and come in a variety of colors.
Lyocell: This regenerated cellulose is made from plants, usually eucalyptus or bamboo. It’s softer than cotton and can help keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Hemp: Hemp sheets are gaining popularity, but they can be more expensive than cotton or linen. They’re soft and can be odorless, but they won’t regulate temperature as effectively as other fabrics.
Eucalyptus: If you’re concerned about allergies or sensitivities, eucalyptus is an eco-friendly alternative to cotton and can help you sleep better. It’s naturally antimicrobial and a good choice for those with sensitive skin.
