Like most products from Amazon, the sheets came in the simple square box and arrived in a simple square shape. They were easy to open and pretty easy to fit onto the bed without it becoming a team effort. I slept in them in shorts and a T-shirt, and the sheets were cooling (but not too cool) and quickly reached a neutral, negligible temperature that felt barely there. They were tight on the mattress both the first night I slept on them and the following days when I worked on them. In a word, they worked and worked well—and I immediately wished I’d ordered more.
As long as you aren’t into the wrinkle-free look, these Bedsure sheets were cool and comfortable with a nice dose of chic. Their texture and weaving make them feel premium, like the kind of sheets one might offer guests or use for a special occasion. And since they’re for everyday use, it makes them great for those who like to languish in bed.
Lane Linen Cotton Sheets
Tested by: Kristi Kellogg, contributor
If you’re looking for something breathable and cooling, you’ll love this lightweight linen set. It’s a solid set of sheets for summer, and at under $50, it’s a great deal. I love the fact that it’s made of organic cotton (and also Oeko-Tex certified). The fitted sheet measures 15″ deep, so it’s compatible with most mattresses. Seen here in mineral, the sheet set is available in more than 20 colors, including charcoal, dusty rose, silver, navy, white, and lilac.
More great sheets we’ve tried on Amazon:
Buffy 100% Eucalyptus Lyocell Sheet Set
While eucalyptus sheets are generally hypoallergenic, Buffy’s 300-thread-count set is also colored with natural dyes—made from ingredients like turmeric, gardenia, and pomegranate — to avoid any potential irritants (or harm to the environment). Dyes aside, Clever editor and tester Zoë Sessums finds them “cool-to-the-touch,” “ultrasoft,” and silky smooth. They “only get softer after each wash,” she adds, and the color hasn’t run or faded.
Coyuchi Organic Relaxed Linen Sheets
Coyuchi’s cotton and linen sheets are made with organic materials and sustainable manufacturing practices. That’s what piqued the interest of our global features director, Sam Cochran, who tested the brand’s Organic Relaxed Linen Sheets this year. They fit securely over his pillow-top mattress, and it “wasn’t a struggle to get each corner around the bend.” Like most linen sheets, they do require some time to soften up, but the “heavy, quality linen” will be “just dreamy” after a few washes, he assures. Coyuchi offers the Alpine White and Soft Black Chambray colorways on Amazon, but seasonal colors—like the “timeworn” Redwood brown that Sam tested—are only available through the brand website.
Linoto 100% Linen Sheet Set
If you prefer a drapey, lived-in bedding look, Amazon also carries Linoto’s oversized linen sheets, much beloved by contributor Erika Owen. “I have a full-size bed and the flat sheet does pool over the edge of my mattress and bed frame,” she writes, but “I also love the lived-in look they constantly have, thanks to the easy wrinkling.” They keep her “constantly cool” throughout the night, so much so that she now has trouble falling asleep on non-linen sheets. While they’re more expensive than most linen sheets on this list, they’re also woven from a higher 500-thread-count, making them softer and more durable, and they’re made in upstate New York.
Cozy Earth Oat Queen Sheet Set
Clever editor Audrey Lee is not only a “big fan” of her Cozy Earth loungewear, but also her cooling bamboo-viscose and linen-blend sheets. According to the brand, bamboo viscose fibers are more hollow than cotton, allowing more air (and heat from your body) to pass through while you sleep. While the linen-bamboo set is only available from the brand’s website, you can buy the bamboo viscose sheets directly from Amazon, which ship for free. They’re “super light and airy,” Audrey writes, making them ideal for warmer months or for hot sleepers, and they “cling to my mattress like a dream.”
Brooklinen Bed Linen Set
Brooklyn-based Brooklinen may very well be our most-recommended bedding brand to date, especially when it comes to cotton sheets. It’s a favorite of Clever editor Rachel Fletcher, who was quickly wooed by the brand’s cotton Luxe Starter Sheet Set. “I’m a hot sleeper with sensitive skin and they’re really cool on my skin at night, which is a huge relief,” she writes. And unlike other lower-end cotton sets she’s tried, they wash well and are “smooth and not at all scratchy.” (They’re also free of skin-irritating chemicals.) If the Amazon-available neutrals aren’t what you’re looking for, you can find the full range of colorways (and the linen sheet sets) on the brand’s website.
Sheets & Giggles 100% Eucalyptus Lyocell Sheet Set
When Clever tester Kristi Kellogg needed a new set of sheets, she took to Amazon (and read dozens upon dozens of reviews), before landing on this eucalyptus-lyocell set from Sheets + Giggles: “They’re billed as super soft, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and naturally cooling… [and] they also come with a lifetime warranty,” she writes. “How can you go wrong?” After testing them for several sleeps, she reports that they have a “smooth, silky feel that is, really, nothing like a regular cotton sheet.” They’re breathable and stay cool-to-the-touch, and are “super refreshing” even on sweltering summer nights.
Sijo Premium 100% Austrian Eucalyptus Lyocell Tencel Sheet Set
Sijo’s eucalyptus-lyocell sheets have a slightly lower thread count than the set above, giving them a lighter weight and more relaxed look. (They are, however, just as cooling.) They have “an almost liquid, viscose kind of feel,” writes tester Rachel Fletcher, that’s akin to “sleeping on a perfectly worn in vintage T-shirt that also keeps you from getting sweaty.” Unlike cotton sheets, they have a satiny shine and “don’t cling to every corner,” making them especially ideal for those who prefer their sheets untucked. Plus, they’re hypoallergenic, as well as asthma- and allergy-friendly certified.
