The 10 Best Cooling Sheets
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2018. While it's scientifically proven that lower bedroom temperatures improve sleep quality, achieving the ideal level — especially during the summer months — can be tough. If you find yourself overheating during the night or waking up in puddles despite a bedside fan, then it may be time to invest in some cooling sheets. We've selected those made from various materials, so there's something for all. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Microfiber sheet sets are the favorite of many for cooling, and we've kept several, but at this time we've decided to add a couple other fiber options for those who are looking for something just a little different. These include organic sheets for those worried about pesticides and ecological impact, including the Looma Sheet and Duvet Set. It's quite an investment, but unlike many, it includes a duvet cover, so you get a lot of bang for your buck. There's also the Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Lyocell; it's made from trees that are sustainably grown. Unfortunately, though, the color selection is not as wide as many, with mostly bold, bright options that won't be for everyone.
Finally, we've opted to keep the Sheex Original Performance, but it, too, is not for all. That's because the pieces feel quite slick and can snag on rough nails or skin, which can really bother some sleepers. If you want to avoid this, but still want microfiber, consider the PeachSkinSheets Original or the Nestl Bedding Four-Piece instead.
Sleep Number True Temp The Sleep Number True Temp uses 37.5 polyester, an advanced, patented fabric designed specifically to maintain the perfect microclimate for sleeping.
