Brooklinen Sheets

Why Brooklinen wins as best linen sheets 

When a brand has the word “linen” in their name, we have some high expectations for their linen sheets. Let’s just say they certainly delivered. From Brooklyn, NY, this brand strives to deliver quality sheets for a reasonable price — affordable luxury. And while their linen set isn’t the cheapest option on our list, they offer a great value for a pair of luxury linen sheets.

While you don’t get an ultra-smooth and buttery feel from these linen sheets, they do provide a durable and breathable feel that is perfect for hot sleepers or seasons where temperatures rise.   

Brooklinen’s most notable features

These sheets are durable and breathable, which we love. They are made from Belgian and French flax, made in Portugal, and are offered in a range of different colors from neutral to light pink.  

Why we picked these bed sheets

Not only is Brooklinen well-received among our team members, but their customer ratings also speak for themselves. This is a popular linen sheet set thanks to its premium hotel quality and thick yet breathable feel. 

Purple Sheets

Why Purple wins as best cooling sheets

Our team members really think these sheets feel like a soft yet breathable jersey fabric with extra stretching abilities. The Purple SoftStretch also has a smooth and sleek look when fitted on your mattress, which is nice for clean people and sleepers who love a no-wrinkle linen look. 

These sheets are more affordable compared to Brooklinen. They obviously aren’t your budget-friendly sheets, but they certainly don’t feel like anything you have felt before.

Purple’s most notable features

While we can’t say we’re surprised that Purple came out with sheets made with sheets unlike almost any we’ve ever tested, we are surprised at how breathable these sheets are. The Purple SoftStretch sheets really live up to their name, as it’s made with 67% Rayon from Bamboo Viscose, 23% Polyester, and 10% Spandex. It’s a moisture-wicking material that we think works great for hot and sweaty sleepers.   

Why we picked these bed sheets

For hot sleepers looking for extra temperature relief, we don’t think it gets much better than these. They are more breathable than your typical cotton sheets, moisture-wicking, and really comfortable to sleep on. Not to mention, they’re easier on your bank account than other sheets that made our list. 

Mellanni Sheets

Why Mellanni wins as best for the money

With Mellanni, you can get a set that includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. Though these aren’t going to be the high-end luxury sheets you might get from some other brands, they’re still durable and affordable, which we’re fans of.

Mellanni’s most notable features

Labeled as wrinkle, fade, and stain-resistant, this sheet set is perfect for those who are hard on their sheets. Whether it’s because you have kids or dogs or just roll around a lot while you sleep, you can rest assured that these sheets can handle it. They’re also good for repelling pet hair, which pet owners will appreciate.

Why we picked these bed sheets

Mellanni offers its sheet sets in more colors and patterns than you’ll know what to do with. They fit all beds, including thicker mattresses, and are just a solid, reliable sheet option.

Thread Spread Sheets

Why Thread Spread wins as best Egyptian Cotton sheets

Thread Spread’s True Luxury sheet sets are 1000-thread-count 100% Egyptian cotton, which means they’re softer than soft. Though getting high up in the thread count can start to lose meaning when it comes to quality and softness, there’s no harm in having such a tightly woven bit of fabric. 

Thread Spread’s most notable features

These sheets come in a number of colors and patterns, so you have plenty to choose from. The sheets are also incredibly durable because of the Egyptian cotton yarn they’re made from. Though they’re tightly woven, the material is still breathable, too.

Why we picked these bed sheets

There’s a lot to like about these sheets, especially because they’re durable, soft, and breathable but won’t break the bank. You can grab a set for an affordable price — and while you’re at it, you can grab two sets.

Cariloha Classic

Why Cariloha wins as best bamboo sheets

Not only are these sheets made from organic bamboo, but they’re incredibly soft and supple while also holding that durability you expect from bamboo. These sheets are also moisture-wicking, so they’ll keep you cool while you sleep, too.

Cariloha’s most notable features

These sheets are made from organic bamboo and are OEKO-TEX 100 certified, so they’re free of any harsh chemicals or irritants. 

Why we picked these bed sheets

Cariloha’s bamboo sheets are OEKO-TEX 100 certified and made to be hypoallergenic. If eco-friendly living is a priority for you, you can feel good about putting these sheets on your bed.
