Best bed sheets

With so many bedding start-ups promising premium-quality, hotel-style sheets for less, it can be hard to keep everything straight. And with the rise in popularity of linen sheets and ones from naturally derived fibers like rayon, it’s easier than ever to find the bedding that fits your aesthetic and your sleeping preferences. Over the years, I’ve spent many hours in bed testing (a.k.a. sleeping in) sheets in a range of styles and fabrics, whether that’s a crisp cotton percale, a silky sateen, or something in between. I’ve also spoken with experts — 33 of them, including designers, tastemakers, and a couple of The Strategist’s own staffers — about their favorites. Here’s a list of everything I’ve tested plus our experts’ own recommendations on the best bedsheets to buy, from classic white Egyptian cotton to cooling bamboo to completely bespoke sets.

Most of the options on this list are sold in sets that come with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillowcases, but I’ve noted if pieces are sold separately. And all prices listed are for queen-size sheets unless otherwise specified.

The first things you want to think about are what your sheets are made of and, if applicable, how they’re woven. The most popular sheets fall into a few major categories of material, with cotton being the most common. Within cotton, you’ll see percale and sateen sheets, terms that refer to the weave of the cotton, which determines the feel of the bedding. Then there’s linen (which is made of flax), bamboo and other alternative fibers, lyocell, jersey, and silk. The material you choose will dictate whether the bedding is cooling, durable, or easy to maintain. Below, a breakdown of the materials:

Cotton percale: Cotton percale is made of a tight one-over-one-under plain weave that’s crisp, lightweight, and matte in appearance (kind of like your favorite white button-up shirt). It’s highly breathable, too, making it a great choice for those who sleep hot, and it’s usually made from long-staple cotton, which has longer fibers and is thus more durable and higher quality than cotton made from shorter fibers (Egyptian and Pima cotton are made from long-staple cotton).

Cotton sateen: Sateen’s three-over-one weave is looser, resulting in a denser feel that drapes well and has a silky sheen. It’s heavier than percale and will sleep slightly warmer.

A note about thread count, which applies only to cotton sheets: Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads in a square inch of fabric. The general thinking goes that the higher the thread count, the nicer the sheets, though that isn’t necessarily true. A good thread-count range to look for in percale and sateen sheets is between 200 and 600, but you should check the quality of the fibers. Long-staple Egyptian cotton is considered some of the best in the world.

Linen: Linen is made from the flax plant and has a rougher texture than cotton, giving that rumpled, lived-in look that can be quite appealing. It’s more durable than cotton, too, and gets softer with each use. The looser weave is breathable, which makes linen another great option for sweaty sleepers.

Jersey: Another popular cotton bedding type is jersey, which you may associate with college dorms because of its accessible price point and the way it feels like your favorite worn-in T-shirt (and is just as low-maintenance). Jersey fabric is knit instead of woven, often from cotton or cotton blended with synthetic fibers, giving it a soft, stretchy, cozy hand feel.

Alternative fibers: A whole crop of sheets is made from alternative fibers — some of which are naturally derived — including rayon, which is made from regenerated cellulose, a.k.a. wood pulp, from either bamboo or eucalyptus; Lyocell, which goes by the brand name Tencel; and microfiber. Lyocell and bamboo are known to be light, crisp, and breathable, making them yet another option for warmer sleepers. (Rayon also goes by viscose, and the two terms are used interchangeably depending on the manufacturer, as you’ll see below).

Silk: This is the most expensive bedding out there and the most finicky to maintain. Made from the cocoons of silkworms, silk is lustrous in feel and luxurious to behold, with a beautiful drape, good temperature regulation, and a smooth, no-snag, no-frizz surface.

Once you’ve chosen the type of bedding you like, you’ll want to consider the look of your sheets. You can go for classic hotel whites with minimal trim, luxury sheets with piping or the option to monogram, or a brand that offers a rainbow of colors.

West Elm Organic Washed Cotton Percale Sheet Set

Material: Cotton percale, GOTS-certified organic cotton, 200 thread count | Style: Seven colors

Throughout my reporting, West Elm’s percale sheets kept coming up as an excellent not-too-expensive option for someone in the market for, well, a nice set of cotton sheets. And after I tested a set of them myself, it was clear that what everyone told me was true: The quality is great. They never look rumpled. And I personally appreciated how hefty they felt while still being crisp, cool, and smooth to the touch. I actually think they’re a great option for someone who prefers a more substantial sheet. They’re made of 200-thread-count organic cotton that’s been garment-washed for extra softness, and they’re a little thicker than other percale sheets I’ve tried. But I still found them to be breathable if you tend to sleep hot. They’re also a great price. Courtney McLeod, the founder and principal designer of New York City–based Right Meets Left Design, loves how they feel, as does skin-care executive Rebecca Zhou, who purchased three of the brand’s percale sets during her last move. “The texture means our bed always looks made but not overly perfect,” she says. In addition, the sheets are made from fabric that is Global Organic Textile Standard certified (GOTS certification is the leading standard for textiles made of organic fibers).

Matouk Sierra 350 Thread Count Fitted Sheet

Material: Cotton percale, long-staple Oeko-Tex cotton, 350 thread count | Style: Two colors, monogrammable

If you’re looking for beautiful, crisp, high-quality percale sheets, consider Matouk. I tested a set of the Sierra sheets, which are made of 350-thread-count, Oeko-Tex certified long-staple cotton and have a classic hemstitch detail, and the first thing I noticed was how crisp and smooth they felt — more than the West Elm. I felt like I was sleeping on “elevated” percale, if I can say that, and they washed well too. (Matouk sells each piece separately, and the fitted sheet shown here is about the same price as the West Elm set, to give you an idea of the price difference.) Interior designers love using Matouk’s luxury sheets as well. Designer Sasha Bikoff loves that “everything’s customizable, from the color of the threading to the monogram and the ruffles,” she says. (You can monogram pillowcases, flat sheets, and duvet covers for an extra fee, and buying things piecemeal means it’s easy to mix and match styles.) While there are plenty of designs, trims, and patterns to choose from, interior designers Anne Hepfer and Elizabeth Gill recommend the timeless Sierra hemstitch sheets, which Hepfer says “are a beautiful, classic base that can pair with any bedding.”

Frette Hotel Classic Sheet Set

Material: Cotton percale, Egyptian long-staple cotton | Style: Embroidered borders in three colors

Of course, you can’t talk fancy sheets without mentioning Frette, which was recommended by two of our experts. It comes as no surprise that Frette’s happen to be the most recommended sheets by hotel insiders. Says Michael Shome, the visuals director at Architectural Digest, “My absolute favorite sheets are the hotel classic from Frette, which are kind of like the fantasy version of Upper East Side hotel bed linens. They’re Italian made in this Egyptian cotton that’s just the softest and butteriest fabric to laze around in. I love the chic and simple double-line embroidery, too.” Interior designer Ariel Okin turns to Frette sheets when she’s looking for something classic. According to Frette’s website, its percale sheets have a thread count between 200 and 240.

Parachute Percale Sheet Set + Top Sheet

Material: Cotton percale, long-staple Oeko-Tex Egyptian cotton | Style: 10 colors; optional top sheet

For percale sheets that are a little higher end without being too expensive, consider these from Parachute that are made from long-staple Egyptian cotton. They’re going to be smoother and more durable than regular cotton, thanks to the longer fibers that make up the fabric. They will also have that distinct crispness that percale is known for. “These sheets are ultrasmooth with a washed quality that manages to feel crisp and clean even up until laundry day,” says Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens. Her longtime favorite sheets have been Morrow’s matte sateen (see below), but she wanted to try something a little more “cooling,” and these were just that: “I tend to run a little hot at night and often kick a leg out to cool down but haven’t needed to with this set.” These come with or without a top sheet, and the price shown here accounts for one.

Anthropologie Organic Percale Printed Sheet Set

Material: Organic cotton percale, Oeko-Tex certified | Style: 11 patterns

Percale sheets will give you that crisp, hotel-sleeping experience at home, but if you’re looking for a bit more visual excitement, check out these patterned sets from Anthropologie that Strategist writer Ambar Pardilla recommends. “The sheetscape is known for its plainness, and I don’t want my room to feel like a hotel,” she says. “I very much want something ridiculously maximalist when I go to bed. I don’t want my bed to be serious at all.” Pardilla, who first encountered the sheets when she worked at Anthropologie, bought two sets, and while those prints are sold out, she appreciates “the eccentricity of the super-colorful florals” of the ten other prints. As for their quality, Pardilla has owned both sets for over a year and says that “the colors are still bright and vivid” and that the sheets “always come out smooth from the dryer.”

Brooklinen Luxe Sateen Core Sheet Set

Material: Cotton sateen, Oeko-Tex certified long-staple cotton, 480 thread count | Style: 13 colors 

Thanks to their weave, sateen sheets, like this 480-thread-count Brooklinen set made of long-staple cotton, have a silkier (and more substantial) feel than percale. I’ve owned this set for four years, and they’re among the softest sheets I have and only get better with time. They’re definitely thicker and therefore sleep a little “warmer” than percale sheets, but if you’re looking for that silky (but still cottony) drape, these are a great place to start. I would say these traditional sateen sheets are better for cooler weather. They’re also recommended by two of our experts — design historian Alessandra Wood, and interior designer Molly Schoneveld. Wood and Schoneveld agree that they’re an excellent value. “It is really hard to beat the quality of these sheets for the price,” says Schoneveld. “They feel like butter and still look and feel great after many times in the wash.” The design pros aren’t their only fans: Former Strategist writer David Notis and Michelin-starred chef Missy Robbins love Brooklinen’s Luxe sheets, which made our list of the best products to buy at Brooklinen. “I want to be super-cozy, but I don’t want to sweat to death — these have that balance,” Robbins says. For those looking for a less shiny sateen option, see below for my review of Morrow’s matte sateen sheets, which have a similar smoothness but are slightly lighter in feel and weight.

Threshold 400-Thread-Count Solid Performance Sheet Set

Material: Cotton sateen, Oeko-Tex certified, 400 thread count | Style: 11 colors

Target’s in-house Threshold line makes some of the best, most affordable sateen sheets you can find. (They’re also a Strategist best seller.) Not only are they a favorite of interior designers Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters of Atlanta-based studio Forbes + Masters, who recommend them for being “great quality for a great price,” they’ve become the go-to sheets for New York Magazine’s deputy editor Alexis Swerdloff. She has a couple of sets for her 5-year-old son’s twin bed. “Threshold sheets are just really solid sheets,” she says. “They get extremely soft after some washes, and the twin size is around $30, which feels appropriate for sheets that my son is gonna pee on a lot!” Plus, she adds, “The many times I have fallen asleep in his bed (with him, or when I just need a place to sleep), I have found them very comfortable.” The sheets come in a nice range of colors and patterns, including light blue, cream, and these blue-dotted ones, all three of which Swerdloff personally owns. Made of 100 percent cotton, the 400-thread-count sheets are wrinkle, pill, and shrink resistant for easy upkeep.

Lands’ End 400 Thread Count Premium Supima Cotton No Iron Sateen Bed Sheet Set
Very Good Deal

Material: Supima cotton sateen, 400 thread count | Style: 10 colors 

Here’s another sateen option with equally high endorsements — except these are made with 100 percent Supima cotton, a premium, USA-grown, extra-long staple fiber. Annie Meyers-Shyer, actress and daughter of filmmaker Nancy Meyers, recently told us about these sateen sheets from Lands’ End, which her family has used since 2018 upon encountering them at a vacation home in the Hamptons. While they’re sateen, Meyers-Shyer says they are “not really shiny, which I think is a great thing. They’re cool and warm all at once. They’re so soft, they’re so luxurious. They wash so well.” And even though the brand calls them no-iron, she still likes to iron them: “They’re crisp and they’re soft, and I would say they’re really delicious. That would be the best way to describe them.” While they’re slightly more expensive than the Brooklinen sheets, they are always going on sale, according to Meyers-Shyer, which makes them a great option for someone who wants something luxurious — before she checked the label, she thought they were Italian made — without the hefty price tag.

Silk & Snow Egyptian-Cotton Bedsheets

Material: Egyptian cotton sateen | Style: Seven colors 

For sateen sheets made from Egyptian cotton, consider these ones from Silk and Snow, which made our list of the best Egyptian cotton sheets for their “very soft” feel and “a beautiful, silk-like sheen,” as Tom Ryan, head of product testing at Sleep Foundation, described them. Ryan also called them “very lightweight and breathable,” and because they’re made from durable Egyptian cotton, they’re an option “that should hold up to everyday use for several years.”

Morrow Organic Matte Sateen in Dune, Queen

Material: Matte sateen, organic Oeko-Tex cotton | Style: Six colors

I love a crisp percale sheet, but sometimes you want something a little cozier. I was intrigued by the idea of these matte sateen sheets by Morrow, one of our favorite brands for tonal bedding, and as soon as I got them, they immediately became my favorite sheets. They’re buttery like regular sateen but not shiny — instead, they’re perfectly lived in and so, so soft, and they get better with each wash. They feel a little heftier than percale while still feeling lightweight and breathable, making them ideal for all seasons. I’ve been using the sheets for about a year and a half now, and they’re always the first set I reach for no matter the season. During a particularly cold spell, I put regular sateen sheets on the bed when the Morrow were in the wash, and I immediately felt the chill and longed for the coziness of the matte sateen. They also feel just as durable as they did on day one. I got them in a soothing eucalyptus, but they’re available in five other muted colors that are great for mixing and matching. (There are more color options for the twin size.) Kitchens, who owns a set in terra-cotta, seconds that “these are the world’s softest sheets.” She’s also had them for about a year and agrees that they get softer over time — and, importantly, don’t pill — are great for all seasons, and never feel too hot, even in the summer.

[Editor’s note: Several colors are currently sold out and others are available for preorder for delivery in mid-February, but the dune, a nice cocoa color, ships immediately.]

Biscuit Home Dorothy Sheet Set

Material: Cotton sateen, 350 thread count | Style: 17 patterns

You can also find sateen sheets in florals and other vibrant patterns if percale feels too crisp. Houston-based Biscuit Home, whose printed 350-thread-count sheets are available in 17 cheerful patterns, sent me the Dorothy set, a not-too-large bright-blue-and-red-flecked botanical print that brings just the right amount of color without overwhelming the space. I thought having a fully matching bedscape that included sheets, pillows, and duvet cover would be too precious, but I actually love it — and my husband doesn’t seem to mind, either. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sateen feels really cozy and lived-in and not at all shiny, unlike other sateen sheets I’ve tried. It also washes (and dries) nicely. Interior designer Lindsey Coral Harper likes using Biscuit Home in her projects, saying that they’re “great for children’s rooms and guest bedrooms or when you want to add a bit of whimsy to a bedroom.” Harper adds that “their printed sheets bring a lot of personality for the price.” And I agree: They’re a worthy dupe for D. Porthault’s much more expensive bedding.

Parachute Linen Sheet Set with Top Sheet

Material: Flax linen, Oeko-Tex certified | Style: 10 colors

Linen sheets, made from the natural fiber of the flax plant, are generally more expensive than cotton because of their more involved manufacturing process and durability. They’re said to get better and softer over time, too, making them a nice long-term investment. I tested a set and the first thing I noticed is that they have that quintessential rustic look and feel of linen. I would even venture to say they are a bit on the scratchy side at first but soften over time, if that’s what you’re going for. Top Chef judge Gail Simmons turns to Parachute for her linen sheets in part because they “won’t cost you a crazy amount.” They’re a solid all-around option for linen because of their “middle-of-the-road price, the substantial feel of the linen, and the color options,” as some of our reviewers have noted. The set is sold with or without a top sheet, and the price shown here includes a top sheet.

Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set

Material: Flax linen, Oeko-Tex certified | Style: 14 colors

If you’d like to try linen sheets for the first time, Brooklinen’s Luxe Hardcore set is a good place to start. According to former Strategist senior writer Lauren Levy, “Brooklinen made me fall in love with linen sheets.” She says they’re “so cozy and so soft” and have “an immediately worn-in feel that only gets softer over time and with each wash.” Wood loves this set, saying it makes for a bit of an “unexpected” look in the bedroom.

Linoto 100 Percent Linen Sheet Set, 14 Inch Standard Depth

Material: Flax linen | Style: 28 colors

According to Strategist contributing editor Margaret Rhodes, Linoto’s linen sheets “felt heavier and more like the idea of an heirloom sheet than any other I’ve encountered.” That’s because, she explains, they’re all made in upstate New York without chemicals or an enzyme prewash that many other manufacturers rely on to get that “lived-in” feeling. Interior designer Leah Alexander is a fan too. “They’re beautiful and made stateside for a palatable lead time, which is saying something these days,” she says. All of Linoto’s fabrics are sourced from mills in Italy and Belgium, and Rhodes says these sheets have the “right ratio of soothing to crisp” that you want in a good linen set. Forbes and Masters love these linen sheets, calling out their whopping 28 available colors. You can choose from different fitted sheet depths, including standard, deep pocket, and shallow fitted.

BedVoyage Bamboo Sheet Set

Material: Bamboo viscose | Style: Five colors

As mentioned in the materials section, sheets made from naturally derived fibers like bamboo are a good choice for warm sleepers. “I recently used bamboo linens for a large project, and I will definitely be using them more going forward,” says Anishka Clarke, co-owner of Ishka Designs. “Bamboo is one of the strongest and hardest natural materials, yet when you feel the fibers on these sheets, they’re just incredibly soft. Softer than you’d imagine. Supersoft — like, baby soft on your skin.” And since they’re made of this strong bamboo, she adds, the sheets are “extremely durable — they generally last about two times longer than cotton sheets. Bamboo sheets are usually more expensive, but overall quality and durability make the fabric a hands-down winner.”

Ettitude Signature Sateen Sheet Set (Queen)

Material: Bamboo lyocell sateen | Style: 11 colors

For Strategist contributor Jolie de Feis, who calls herself a “very sweaty person and an even sweatier sleeper,” none of the typically “cooling” sheets ever worked for her, until she tried these bamboo lyocell sheets from Ettitude. As she wrote, “as soon as I touched the fabric I could tell the sheets were different.” Like many other fabrics known to be cooling, these are made from lyocell, but instead of being derived from eucalyptus, they come from bamboo, which she says is a relatively new innovation. Compared to other types of bamboo, viscose, and lyocell sheets she’s tried, she found a noticeable difference in Ettitude’s quality, feel, and performance. “They feel like a cross between cotton and silk, somehow crispy-cool and soft at the same time,” she wrote, adding, “As someone who has frequently slept on a towel to avoid changing my sheets multiple times per week, I am genuinely astonished every morning when I wake up sweat free.” Even though they are a bit on the pricey side, de Feis loves them so much that she’s replaced every other sheet she owns with Ettitude, including her duvet cover. Strategist junior writer Brenley Goertzen also loves these sheets, saying that they feel even better than her Brooklinen sateen set. “I love how airy they feel,” she says. “They’re also cooler and smoother than the Brooklinen. My boyfriend is a very hot sleeper, and I’m always cold, and we found that these are perfect for both of us.” As for how they compare to sateen, Goertzen says that they feel much closer to cotton sateen than other bamboo sheets she’s tried: “They’re super-soft like cotton, but a tad more slippery, I’d say.”

Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set
Very Good Deal

Material: Bamboo viscose / Style: 13 colors

For bamboo sheets that feel truly luxe, former Strategist writer Latifah Miles recommends this set from Cozy Earth made from premium bamboo viscose. “They are easily my favorite and feel like creme brûlée — minus the sugar crust,” says Miles, who has tried the Ettitude sheets, above. “They have a similar feel to the Ettitude but have held up far better in the wash, maintaining that silky smooth — and shiny — texture that I love.”

Sijo AiryWeight Eucalyptus Sheet Set

Material: Tencel Lyocell, Oeko-Tex certified | Style: Eight colors

For some folks, including former Strategist senior editor Chelsea Peng, cotton just feels too rough, which is why she prefers these sheets from Sijo, which are made from eucalyptus-derived Tencel lyocell. “They’re so smooth and slippery,” she says, noting that she can barely feel the difference in texture between her silk pillowcase and these sheets. “I do cricket legs — when you’re under the covers and rub your legs together because you’re comfy — every time I get in because there’s zero snagging and they don’t feel sticky, unlike some other sheets I’ve tried.” And as a hot sleeper, she says they’re definitely cooling. “I hate sleeping under AC even in the summer, and these feel like they somehow create an air pocket around you so you don’t overheat,” she explains. “I’ve tried them in the winter, layered under duvets, and that air pocket quality remains.” Peng adds that they wash really well. “I don’t do anything special, and they’ve stayed silky with no snags, even though I feel like the machines in my building are especially violent.” After receiving them three years ago as a sample, they are still her go-to sheets. “I’ve tried a few other DTC brands, but these are the only ones with cricket legs for me.”

Mellanni Hotel Luxury 1800 Microfiber Sheet Set

Material: Microfiber | Style: 40 colors

Microfiber sheets, typically made from finely woven strands of polyester, nylon, or even wood pulp, are known for being silky soft, durable, and affordable. Designer Ashley Moore loves these Mellanni sheets (which have over 280,000 reviews on Amazon) for a number of reasons — No. 1 being the price tag. “You cannot beat these for the price,” she says. According to Moore, they’re made from a brushed microfiber that’s “supersoft.” “If you read all the reviews, you’ll hear almost everyone say the same thing,” she says. “That’s why we have these in every guest bedroom in our home.”

Comphy Sheet Set

Photo: Retailer

Material: Microfiber twill | Style: Nine colors

“For years, I’ve been using Comphy as my go-to for wrinkle-free, supersoft sheets,” says interior designer Caitlin Murray, the founder of Black Lacquer Design. These sheets are made from a microfiber twill that, according to the brand’s website, is comparable to 600-thread-count sheets and is highly breathable. Comphy started as a hotel-spa line, so its sheets are “extra-durable and stain resistant,” Murray adds. Bonus: They’re recyclable.

Coyuchi Organic Jersey Sheet Set - Full

Material: Cotton-jersey knit, GOTS and Made Safe Certified | Style: Five colors

Jersey sheets often get a bad rap for their association with college dorms, but they can be an excellent choice for folks looking for a lived-in, low-key — and low-maintenance — option. I tested a set and can attest to how cozy, smooth, and soft these sheets feel — even in hotter weather. This set from Coyuchi (maker of some of our favorite linen sheets) comes recommended by Nancy Davilman of ND Interiors, who calls them “incredibly soft.” Made of durable organic cotton knit that resists pilling, “they are very breathable, so they keep your temperature very balanced,” according to Davilman.

The Company Store Company Cotton Jersey Knit Sheet Set
Very Good Deal

Material: Oeko-Tex-certified cotton | Style: 12 colors

Jersey sheets often get a bad rap for their association with college dorms, but they can be an excellent choice for folks looking for a lived-in, low-key, and low-maintenance option. I love this set from the Company Store for how cozy, smooth, and soft they are. They have a good heft to them as well as a bit of stretch — but not too much — making them feel closer to regular cotton sheets than the cheap jersey sheets I had in college. They’re just really nice and a great introduction option if you’re looking for something cozier and laid-back for the winter without committing to something too thick like flannel.

Kumi Kookoon Classic Fitted Sheets

Kumi Kookoon Classic Collection Pillowcase, French Vanilla

Material: Silk, 19 momme charmeuse | Style: 39 colors

Unlike satin sheets that just feel silky, sheets made of actual silk are the real deal. But like anything made of silk, they come at a price, which is why starting out with a silk pillowcase could be a good toe dip before investing in a whole set, according to Zoe Mac, founder of Zoe Mac Design. “It’s gentler on your skin, and your hair isn’t as frizzy when you wake up,” Mac says of the benefits of silk pillowcases. While she thinks most of the silk pillowcases on the market can be “really tacky,” these, from Kumi Kookoon, are an exception. “They have this range of incredible colors. I use a really deep-indigo navy, and it’s a dream to sleep on. They’re so soft, and I really notice the difference when I wake up. My hair is not as crazy bedhead in the morning, and my skin feels better.” If you like the pillowcases and want to sleep fully enveloped in silk, you can splurge on one of Kumi Kokoon’s flat or fitted silk sheets, which come in over 30 colors. (And if you want to start with a pillowcase that’s a bit more affordable, consider our best-in-class pick from ZimaSilk that, like Kumi Kookoon, has a standard momme of 19 and costs a fraction of the price.)
