We’re fans of the Tuft & Needle mattress here at the Slumber Yard because it’s so accommodating and affordable, and now we’re here to reveal if we’re equally as impressed with their sheet sets. Above, you can find a handy outline to help you navigate our detailed review.
Overview Of Tuft and Needle Sheets
As you’ll learn in this review, Tuft & Needle has three different sheet sets to choose from: Percale, Jersey, and Linen. They range in price and are made with different materials, so we can see each one appealing to different sleepers.
Jersey Sheets — This cozy sheet set is made with 50% cotton and 50% TENCEL Lyocell, and they’re pretty wallet-friendly compared to the rest of Tuft & Needle’s lineup, or even other sheet sets we’ve tested here at the Slumber Yard. If you want really soft sheets to cuddle up to, these might be a good option for you.
Percale Sheets — A set including comfortable, smooth sheets with a 215-thread count that’s ideal for folks who want a pair of quality sheets that are a notch above standard sets you’d pick up from JC Penny or Target. They aren’t the most affordable sheets we’ve seen, but they’re certainly not the most expensive either. The queen set, for example, retails for $90.
Linen Sheets — For a set of linen sheets, we think Tuft & Needle hit the nail on the nose for affordable luxury. They’re strong and durable, yet breathable for sleepers who tend to warm up during the night. The brand also claims that the sheets only get softer and softer of the years that you use them (that’s right, they said years). Additionally, if you compare them to other linen sets we’ve tested out, purchasing these can save around $50 or more — especially if they’re on sale.
Some sheet sets, even luxury ones like from Boll and Branch, don’t come with additional perks like online mattresses do. However, when you purchase sheets from Tuft & needle, you’re guaranteed a few different policies.
First of all, you’ll receive free shipping to your doorstep and a 100-night risk-free trial. Since you’re unable to run your hand across the sheets through your computer screen, the brand wants to give you ample time to test them out. If by the end of the trial you don’t think Tuft & Needle’s sheets are worth the money, you can contact customer support to get the ball rolling on a free refund.
If you end up loving your sheets — great. You’ll be given a one or 2-year limited warranty (depending on the sheet set) in case of a manufacturing defect. Like we mentioned before, most bedding accessories like linens don’t come with additional policies. So we definitely give an edge to Tuft & Needle for being more accommodating. To check out the specifics on warranty policies, make sure to head over to their website.
Jersey Sheet Set Review
Out of all three Tuft & Needle sheet sets, their Jersey option is the most affordable. Though, they don’t feel like your typical light and breathable sheets.
We think these are best for folks who are looking for something extra soft and cozy.
How Much Do They Cost?
The queen set we were given came included with one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two standard pillowcases. If you purchase the king or Cal king size set, you’ll be given two king pillowcases. Below is a breakdown of the Jersey Sheet set’s different prices.
|Twin / Twin XL||$60|
|Full / Queen||$70|
|King / Cal King||$80|
As we mentioned before, they’re definitely the most affordable between the three sets. So if you love Tuft & Needle sheets but you’re not comfortable spending more than what you would at Target, these may be the ones for you. You may even be able to get them for cheaper if you purchase on sale. At the time of this post, for example, you can get these sheets for about $15-$25 off.
Jersey Set Materials
So what do we mean when we say these sheets aren’t like your standard ones? Well, we think they’re warmer and more soft-to-the-touch. Like if you were to sleep on a pair of sheets that were made out of your favorite soft t-shirt — they’re seriously cozy. They are 50% cotton, and 50% TENCEL Lyocell. So if you get cold easily during the night or if you’re looking for your perfect cool-weather sheets, we think these would be a great go-to.
Now, let’s get down to the technical stuff here. The Sheets are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified, and are made in Pakistan. The pockets are 16” deep, which they say can fit a 14” thick mattress. Most mattresses are 10-13” thick, so we think it should fit just about everybody’s bed.
The one downside we can see with these sheets is that they aren’t available in a lot of basic colors, like white, beige, or ivory. Instead, you have Rose (pink), Periwinkle (light blue), Fog (grey), Charcoal (black), and Marigold (orange/gold).
It’s recommended that you wash these sheets prior to using them, but make sure you use cold water and a mild detergent. You can read more about the care instructions on their website and on the tags on the sheets themselves.
Percale Sheet Set Review
These sheets feel comfy and crisp, and we’d compare them to the type of sheets most of us are used to. We think the Percale set is best for people looking for breathable, soft sheets.
They’re more expensive than your regular run-of-the-mill sheets, but they’re decently affordable compared to Tuft & Needle’s Linen sheets and other online bedding brands who make quality bedding.
Price Of Percale
If you’re looking to spend a little extra money on quality bedding without breaking the bank, you might like the price tag on Tuft & Needle’s Percale Sheet Set. They’re moderately priced compared to the rest of their sheet products, as they start at about $75 for a twin set and go up to $125 for the Cal king set.
While the brand isn’t huge on giving discounts on their mattresses because they’re already so affordable, but we have seen them discount their sheets. If you catch them during a promotion, you can purchase for about $8-$12 off.
Percale Sheet Materials
We think these sheets feel like your standard set, just a little more high quality than something you’d pick up at an average big-box store (like Walmart, Target, or other large chains). They’re not as soft as their Jersey sheets, so we think this set is ideal for folks who are in the market for something more breathable. Overall, we think they’re on the lighter side, thin, and smooth without the sheen you see on sateen sheets such as Boll and Branch’s.
They are woven and sewn in India, and have a 215-thread count — high enough to feel soft and comfortable, but not as luxurious as something like Brooklinen. Though, thread-count isn’t the end all be all measurement for nice sheets. You should also take materials into account.
These sheets are made with 100% SUPIMA cotton sourced from the United States, plus they’re made without chemical softeners and wrinkle guards. So if you ask us, we think they’re pretty quality.
The pockets are 16” deep, meaning it can fit mattresses 14” thick or less. They suggest you wash these sheets before you use them, just use a cool water cycle and a mild detergent. The Percale sheets are also iron-friendly, just make sure to use the cotton setting.
Linen Sheet Set Review
For those of you who want a thicker, heavier, yet breathable set of sheets — you may want to consider Tuft & Needle’s Linen Sheet Set.
While they’re the most expensive sheets from the brand’s three options, we also think they’re the most premium.
How Much Do They Cost?
Prices for the Linen Sheet Set start at about $175 for a queen size, and cap out around $225 for the Cal king set. However, you may be able to save around $20 or so if you purchase during a promo.
Budget shoppers may balk at the price of these sheets, since you can buy full comforter sets from department stores at the same cost. But we see some sleepers thinking they’re worth the higher price tag, especially if you want a pair of durable, heavy duty sheets. They’re also more cost-effective than other linen sheets on the market.
Linen Sheet Set Materials
When we say the Linen Sheet Set is heavy duty, we don’t mean they’re fuzzy and bulky. Quite the opposite actually — they’re incredibly breathable and not exactly soft-to-the-touch upon first impression. They’re actually supposed to soften up over the years as you use them.
The material is more textured and made of certified European Flax, meaning they’re natural and cooler sleeping than cotton. So if you’re a particularly hot sleeper, you might sleep more comfortably with these fitted around your mattress.
Getting down to the specs, these sheets are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certified and they’re sewn in India. Like the pockets on the other two sheet sets, these are also 16” deep and fit best on a mattress 14” thick or smaller.
They are already washed when you pull them out of their packaging, so they’re technically ready to go right away. Though, the brand still suggests you wash them before first use just for safekeeping. Just run them through a cool setting on your washer, and either leave them out to line dry or tumble dry on a low heat setting.
Tuft & Needle sent us their sheets so we could test them out, as we did with their Tuft & Needle Mattress, and write an honest review about them on our website.
For twin and twin XL you’ll receive one pillowcase, one fitted sheet, and one flat sheet. If you purchase a full or queen set, you’ll be sent two standard pillowcases, one fitted sheet, and one flat sheet. For those who purchase king or Cal king, you’ll be given two king pillowcases, a fitted sheet, and a flat sheet.
For all sheets, you’ll want to wash them before you use them for the first time. Make sure to use cold water, and a gentle detergent. Line dry or use the tumble dry setting on low heat.
Their Jersey Sheet Set has a 1-year warranty, while their Percale and Linen Set have a 2-year warranty.
If you’re in the market for more budget-friendly sheets, their Jersey Set is the most cost-effective.
