These cooling bed sheets are the secret to a sweat-free night – here are the 5 best sets

Do you have trouble sleeping through the night because you get too hot? You’re definitely not alone. There are plenty of folks out here with the same problem; so many, in fact, that there’s an entire whole category of sheets designed just to help them out! They’re called cooling sheets, (or cooling bedding in general, but for our purposes today — they’re cooling sheets), and they come in an impressive array of sizes, colors, and patterns right now.

Since the human body loses control of temperature regulation when we fall asleep, the highs and lows we experience while in bed may be a surprise to us if given the chance to monitor them. Come take a closer look at our favorite 5 sets with us and see what sets you need to take home:

Parachute Percale Sheet Set

For hot sleepers or those who struggle with night sweats, these Parachute Percale sheets are definitely what the doctor ordered. Recommended specifically for hot sleepers, Parachute’s percale sheet sets are created with 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton, designed in a simple weave to be lightweight and cool.

Crisp and matte, these eets are available in two sizes (full and queen) and five colors: white, blush, sand, light grey, and slate. What’s more?  are the sheets that get softer over time as they’re washed. Set comes with one fitted sheet and two pillow cases, but you can choose to add a top sheet as well, if you like. Select this option at the time of your order. Durable and long-lasting, previous customers called them “well worth the price.” Get your set of queen-sized Parachute Percale Sheets for $210.

Made of 100% American-grown Supima cotton, Tuft & Needle’s Percale Sheet Sets are ideal for the person who longs to sleep just a bit cooler at night. Woven in India and made without harsh chemical softeners or wrinkle relaxers, these are a soft 215 thread count to keep things supple and cool simultaneously.

These sheet sets come with one fitted sheet, one top sheet, and two standard pillowcases, as well as a two-year limited warranty. Available in seven sizes (twin, twin XL, full, queen, kingcal, kingsplit, king), and five colors: cloud, sage, charcoal, sand, and slate. Get a set on the Tuft & Needle site for $100.


Layla Sleep Bamboo Sheets

Layla’s cooling bamboo sheets made from the viscose (or cellulose) of the bamboo plant are not only cool, but silky, soft, breathable, and said to be “3 degrees cooler than cotton”. One reason for hot sleeping is that when we humans go to sleep, we lose our ability to regulate our own body temperature. With this sheet set’s moisture wicking and thermal regulating capabilities, they will surely also keep you dry and cozy.
Quick-growing bamboo is a great resource for the eco-conscious as it’s naturally resistant to pests (thus requiring no pesticides), creates substantially more oxygen than most trees, helps prevent soil erosion, and also requires much less water to grow than cotton. So when you opt for these cooling sheets, you can consider yourself environmentally conscious as well as comfortable!

Available in six sizes (twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and calking), and two colors (white and grey), Layla’s bamboo sheets are $150 for a queen-sized set here.


Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set

Brooklinen’s cooling linen core sheet set includes 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, and 2 pillow cases. These extraordinary sheets are offered in ten regular colors/patterns (graphite, haze, petal, cream, white, charcoal chambray, navy chambray, mist, charcoal chambray and white stripe, and indigo), four limited edition colors/patterns (cantaloupe and cream, terracotta, berry, and cantaloupe), and four sizes (full, queen, king, and calking). 

Maintaining 4.4 out of 5 stars after 1,163 customer reviews, these sheets are undeniably cushy and well-loved among previous customers. Made in Portugal from 100% Belgian and French flax, Brooklinen’s products are certified against using harmful chemicals during their manufacturing process as well.

Brooklyn Bedding

Offering eight sizes (twin, twin XL, full, full XL, queen, king, cal king, and split king) and four stylish colors (white, silver, chocolate, and khaki) of chic, breathable bamboo-derived fibers, Brooklyn Bedding bamboo twill sheet sets carry a 4.7-star rating out of 5 stars after 340 customer reviews.

Sumptuously cool and soft hypoallergenic components comprise these sheet sets, and each set is complete with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillow cases. Split King sets come with two fitted sheets. Moisture wicking properties integrated with the bamboo’s superior breathability allow for these sheets to create the perfect antimicrobial setting for the sensitive-skinned.


We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about some our favorite cooling bed sheets, and wonder if perhaps you would now consider trying a set on for yourself? Remember that most of them, including the set above from Brooklyn Bedding, offer a risk-free 120-night sleep trial (so you can return it before the 120-night mark for a full refund — just make sure you keep your receipts and documentation on case you need to turn it in) and a handy 10-year warranty.

Whether it be Brooklyn Bedding, Brooklinen, Layla, Tuft & Needle, Parachute, or any other luxe sheet set maker, be sure to check among their cooling sheet sets for the qualities we’ve discussed here – premium fabric, moisture wicking, and any other properties you find helpful for your best sleep.  It pays to pay close attention to what’s happening with your body as time goes forward with your selection — and with the summer closer than ever, you may want to grab a few sets to have on hand.
