The 13 Best Cooling Sheets for Hot Sleepers
If the mere thought of cocooning in heavy sheets makes you sweat, but sleeping on top of them isn’t an option (you’re not an animal), then it might be time to invest in bedding that’s specifically designed to regulate your body temperature. Because as all hot sleepers know, it feels impossible to keep cool while you snooze. Here are 13 of the best cooling sheets to shop just in time for summer.
1. Parachute Percale Sheet Set
There’s something about crisp sheets that reminds us of a five-star hotel. And Parachute’s Portugal-made percale bundle will make your bedroom feel like The Ritz. The sheets are woven from long-staple Egyptian cotton, which is lightweight, breathable and durable enough to keep its crisp factor, no matter how often you wash them.
2. Sleep Number TRUE TEMP™ SHEET SET
These sheets get high marks for the way they feel substantial without feeling too heavy, and the cotton-poly weave has a touch of spandex to really cuddle against your body, while still staying cool. Plus, thoughtful design innovations such as a tag denoting the foot of the bed and a stay-put corner strap ensure that you keep your cool even while making the bed.
3. Charter Club Sleep Cool Hygro Egyptian Cotton 400 Thread Count 3 Pc. Sheet Set
Egyptian Hygro cotton adapts to changes in temperature, and has moisture-wicking and antimicrobial properties to help keep you dry and comfortable. And the sheen of the sateen weave looks and feels elegant.
4. Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set
Did you know naturally cooling linen is made from environmentally conscious flax? Brooklinen’s is sourced from Belgium and France and is OEKO-TEX certified for chemical safety. Each piece of the Linen Core Sheet Set is individually washed and dyed in small batches in Portugal, for a genuine one-of-a-kind, lived in look.
5. Buffy Eucalyptus Sheet Set
Sustainable, hypoallergenic, naturally dyed and cool to the touch, eucalyptus is another earth-friendly fabric that filters out heat, rather than trapping it.

7. Helix White Ultra Soft Sheet Set
Made with Tencel (an eco-friendly material extracted from wood pulp), Helix’s sheets are more effective at drawing out moisture than traditional cotton sheets, plus the natural fibers require 10 to 20 times less water during production.
