Boll & Branch Natural Bedroom Sheets

Can’t decide what bed sheets to buy? We tested a few out so you can pick the right fit for your lifestyle. After all, you spend a third of your life sleeping. Why shouldn’t it be on the best sheets money can buy?

Parachute Linen Venice Set and Top Sheet


About the company:
Ariel Kaye founded Parachute after discovering the perfect set of sheets in a bed while traveling along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. She couldn’t find anything like them, so she decided to create Parachute.
Description: Named after the city where Parachute is based, the signature Venice Set includes everything you need for a comfortable night of sleep.
What’s included: Fitted sheet, duvet cover, and two pillow cases. Top sheet is sold separately.
Made with: One-hundred percent European Flax, garment dyed and washed in small batches, so color will be unique to each piece.
What we liked: We’ve been wanting to try Parachute for a while because of all the hype around the brand, and we figured out what it was all about after our first night sleeping with the Parachute Linen Venice Set. The linen was soft, cool, and comfortable, and we did not want to leave our bed. Forget Egyptian cotton — it’s all about linen.
Cons: You have to be careful when washing linen, but it’s worth it.

About the company: Coyuchi is committed to “sustainability, minimally processed organic and natural fibers, and a truly human commitment to the hands that touch each product.”
Description: The best-selling Coyuchi 220 Percale Sheet Set is made with 100-percent organic cotton in a percale weave and comes in four colorways.
What’s Included:  Fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillow cases.
Made with: One-hundred percent organic cotton, sourced and woven in India.

Cons: If you want super soft sheets from the get go, we would go for another brand.

Loomstead Linen Sheet Set, Flat Sheet, Linen Duvet Set & Premium Down Duvet Insert

About the company: Loomstead was started by young professionals with three values in mind: 1) offer the highest quality products that meet our uncompromising standards, 2) control the manufacturing process to ensure the highest standards are upheld, and 3) cut out the middle man and work directly with you, our valued customer.
What’s included: The Loomstead Linen Sheet Set, available in four colorways, includes one fitted sheet and two pillowcases. For an additional cost plus an overall 15 percent discount, a flat sheet can be added. The Linen Duvet Set comes with a duvet cover and two pillowcases. The Premium Down Duvet Insert is sold separately.
Made with: Belgian Flax Linen
What we liked: We always thought of linen as a coarse material that made for a good fabric to wear in summer months, but when we did our research, it’s supposed to be good for bed sheets as well. Loomstead convinced us that linen is the way to go in warmer months, and its breathability makes for warmer nights in the winter. It wasn’t rough to sleep in at all, and we loved the easygoing look of white linen sheets. The sheets are also supposed to get softer with time. The duvet insert was especially cozy. Try Loomstead if you want to see just why linen sheets are the way to go.
Cons: Linen takes extra care when being washed and wood buttons on the duvet cover tend to come unhooked easily.
