BEST SHEETS TO KEEP YOU COOL

PERCALE

Percale is a classic choice for summertime slumbers (or all year round). This type of cotton has a matte finish, is crisp and cool to the touch, super soft, and lightweight. Another big selling point? Durability. Percale sheets can last for many, many summers with proper care.

BAMBOO

Bamboo fibers have a lot of benefits when it comes to staying cool. They naturally wick moisture (meaning no more waking up in a pool of sweat) and easily adapt to your body temperature. The silky feel and breathability are also big benefits on particularly brutal summer nights.

LINEN

Linen is a lightweight fabric made from the flax plant and has a hand feel that only gets better after every wash. It dries quicker than cotton and also helps wick away moisture, making it an ideal choice for dressing your bed during hot weather months.

EUCALYPTUS

More than just a soothing scent (or a koala bear’s fave snack) eucalyptus fibers also make ideal sheets. Even softer and more breathable than cotton or linen, this naturally derived material can also be produced as lyocell, a fiber made from wood pulp, that’s super silky and cool!
