10 Best Cooling Sheets 2024

<p class=”body-text”>If you’re shopping for a new set of <a href=”https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/g60189254/best-cooling-comforters/” target=”_blank”>cooling</a> sheets yourself, well, I’ve done the research to help. To start, keep in mind what kind of sleeper you are. Are you a <a href=”https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/g40383338/best-sheets-for-hot-sleepers/” target=”_blank”>hot sleeper</a> year round or summer only? Want to leave the AC off and the windows open in the summer, but still not wake up sweating? Prefer <a href=”https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/g40691165/best-cotton-sheets/” target=”_blank”>cotton</a> over everything? Do you, for reasons I’ll never understand, hate a top sheet? </p><p>For the most part, sheets are gonna look like sheets. This is not about aesthetic and much more about function and <em>feel. </em>That’s the main standout in these sets of sheets. Some fabrics—like <a href=”https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/g60572648/best-linen-sheets/” target=”_blank”>linen</a> and bamboo—are meant to be airy and moisture-wicking, so they help you stay cool. Others, like Purple’s Comfort sheets and Parachute’s <a href=”https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/g43025595/best-percal-sheets/?” target=”_blank”>cotton percale</a>, feel cool to the touch, but aren’t necessarily as airy. <em></em>It comes down to your very personal nighttime preference, but any one of these 10 are a solid place to start. </p>”/>

Best Overall Cooling Sheets

Purple Comfort Sheets

Editor’s Choice

Comfort Sheets

  • Fitted sheet elastic easy to secure
  • Long-lasting
  • Not a ton of color options

Purple’s Comfort sheets are my ride or die sheets, and believe me when I say I have tried a lot of sheets. They’re my favorite for a few reasons. One, the fitted sheet is a cotton-spandex blend, which makes things infinitely easier when making your bed. I’ve never one time pulled them out of the corners in my sleep. (The thick elastic band helps with this, too.) But they come through on comfort, too. They feel cool every time you climb into bed, and they maintain this feeling after even my four years of use.

Best Temperature-Regulating Sheets

SIJO TempTune Cotton Sheet Set

TempTune Cotton Sheet Set
  • Temperature-regulating
  • Not a ton of color options

If you fall asleep fine but find yourself waking up in a body of sweat, Sijo’s TempTune sheets could help prevent all that discomfort. These are made from Sijo’s own Clima Tech fabric, which is moisture-wicking and meant to keep you neither too not nor too cold, and cotton, which is a sheet fabric staple.

Best Basic Cooling Sheets

Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set

Linen Core Sheet Set
  • Truly lightweight
  • Linen gets nice and soft after a few washes
  • Don’t hold up as long as we’d want them to

Whenever you’re not sure where to begin with bedding, Brooklinen is a good place to start. This linen sheet set is going to give you one of the airiest feels of the bunch. The wide linen weave means there’s room for airflow. They’ll feel natural and always stay cool.

Best Linen Cooling Sheets

Buffy Linen Sheet Set

Linen Sheet Set
  • Keeps hot sleepers cool
  • One of the more durable linen sets we’ve found
  • Colors tend to sell out

Buffy’s sheets are made out of an airy hemp linen and are an ideal choice for people who sleep hot all year round. They are lightweight, and the brand sells a matching duvet cover if you like the bit wrinkly, undone linen look. If you’re accustomed to cotton sateen or percale, these will feel a little scratchy. This dissipates the more you use and wash them, though.

Best Silky-Feeling Cooling Sheets

Quince Bamboo Sheets

Bamboo Sheets
  • Good price
  • Fitted sheet elastic is meh

For that true cool feel, bamboo is our fabric of choice. It feels silkier than a cotton (and much more than linen). They don’t necessarily keep you as cool as linen, though, so it’s better for the cool feeling than cool function. Get this set with or without the top sheet.

Best Cooling Cotton Sateen Sheets

Tribeca Living Cotton Sateen Deep Pocket Sheet Set

Cotton Sateen Deep Pocket Sheet Set

Another good choice for that cool feel is Tribeca Living’s cotton sateen sheet set. Sateen feels a little silkier than percale but a little smoother than bamboo. These sheets are just plain nice and at a great price point. They fit mattress up to 22 inches thick.

Best Budget Cooling Sheets

California Design Den 100% Cotton Sheets

100% Cotton Sheets
  • Great price
  • Arrive quickly
  • A bit cheap-feeling

Most sheets are made with cotton because cotton is one of nature’s most breathable fabrics. This sheet set is as straightforward as it gets: 400-thread count sateen with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. It’s on the thin side, which can be good for those who want it lightweight, but it can also feel a bit cheap.

What Cooling Sheets Are Right for Me?

line break

The best sheets really come down to your extremely personal preferences, from how hot or cold you generally sleep to how precisely you like your feet to feel when you slip them into bed. A few things to keep in mind:

Sheet Material – Cotton is a no-brainer for most sleepers, and tighter weaves will give you a cool feeling (like sateen or percale) but not necessarily *keep* you as cool as something airier like linen. Same goes for bamboo (cool-feeling and usually moisture-wicking) and other tencell blends.

Bed Size – If you have a mattress that is thick as all hell (I should know; I have a Purple), then you want to make sure that your fitted sheet has enough room in the corner pockets to fit comfortably around your mattress.

Miscellaneous Preferences – After testing one-zillion sheets, I can truly say that a thick, stretchy elastic makes my life a whole lot easier than something thin—although you might not care in the slightest. Some other preferences: fitted sheets that are marked with head/foot sides and sheet sets that keep the top sheet optional.
