I was introduced to the world of cooling sheet sets last summer when I tried to navigate the hot, hot heat with a trifecta of cooling homewares. The verdict: Just buy an air conditioner. Okay, but second verdict: Creating a bedroom set-up that isn’t swelteringly hot is essential for a good night’s sleep. Of course, our bodies prefer cooler temperatures when it comes to dozing off, but things like night sweats can leave you sleeping in swampy linens in the middle of the night, and that’s not good for your ZZZs either.
Whether it’s still scorching in September or you just prefer an Igloo-like bed situation, we’re here to help. We rounded up a series of cooling sheets sets in different fabrics, colors, and styles. Keep scrolling to find the one that will transport you to dreamland, no sweat.
Shop Now: Ettitude Bamboo Lyocell Sheet Set, $178
These super soft sheets are made of, you guessed it, 100 percent organic bamboo. That makes them not only a sustainable choice, but an intriguing alternative to your regulation cotton-blend. In fact, the 300 thread count sheet is equivalent to 1000 thread count cotton, so you’re guaranteed to get a silky smooth feel when you’re chilling in bed.
Shop Now: Peach Skin Sheets, $90
What I love about Peach Skin Sheets is the absolute wealth of colors — this one’s Pumpkin Spice Latte, because why not slide on into autumnal bliss early. They’re also thermoregulating for cool and warm body temperatures, and moisture-wicking so you’re not sleeping in a pool of sweat. Lovely!
Shop Now: Comfort Spaces Coolmax Moisture-Wicking Bed Cooling Sheets, $25+
Okay, so the Coolmax route may not be the most lux option on this list, but it clears four stars on Amazon and has a price point that will make your wallet very, very happy. If you’re looking to tepidly wander into the world of cooling sheets, this could be a worthwhile venue to explore.
Shop: Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets, $169
Eucalyptus! What a flex! These sheets by Buffy claim to be cooler and more breathable than cotton and softer than linen, so you’ll get sweet dreams sleeping on smooth sheets every night.
Shop Now: GhostSheets, $94
GhostSheets are not effing around when it comes to the cooling game. These guys are made from Supima cotton blended with cooling, eco-friendly TENCEL fibers, which aid in temperature regulation and moisture absorption, giving you the brisk bedsheets you deserve. Bonus: The fitted sheets come with a GhostGrip band, ensuring that they don’t slide off in the middle of the night.
Shop Now: Stratus Sheet Set, $159
Slumber Cloud is a departure from all of the previous sheets in that they are, get this, made from cotton blended with NASA-engineered fibers. NASA! This sophisticated set is able to regulate based on the fluctuations in temperature, so if you’re a sleep tech nerd who wants some smart sheets, this might be your best match.
Shop: Brooklinen Classic Core Sleep Set, $109
Finally, we have this Classic Core set developed with hot sleepers in mind (not just those of us who sleep in the nude, like those of us who burn up at bedtime). Throw on these sheets if you’ve been tossing, turning, and raising your temps night after night.
