At this time, we've kept a range of fabric types, including cotton, flannel, and microfiber, but it's worth noting that the latter tends not to be the most environmentally friendly to produce. If eco-friendliness is important to you, then, you may want to skip microfiber sheets, which include the Mellanni Brushed Microfiber and the Zen Bamboo Luxury. On the other hand, they tend to be less expensive than sheets with other types of fiber content, so if you are experiencing a budget crunch, they are ones to consider.
As for popular cotton options, we've removed the MyPillow Giza Dreams, which are just too rough and wrinkly for the cost. The Feather & Stitch Deep Pocket represent a better value. With a thread count of 500, they offer a good hand feel, and the subtle stripes are luxurious but not garish. There's also the Brooklinen Luxe Core, but these feel a bit scratchy to some. Or, if you're looking for a wide array of colors to match your comforter or window curtains, there's the California Design Den Combed. They meet Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex requirements for your peace of mind, too.
Finally, we kept one flannel option, the Tribeca Living Flannel, and added another, the Eddie Bauer Dog Friends. The former has a floral print, so it's not for everyone. The latter comes in a variety of fun choices, including dog, deer, and bear prints, that should pair well with rustic or country decor.
L.L.Bean Percale Long-staple pima cotton makes the L.L.Bean Percale a comfortable, long-lasting choice, especially for those with chemical sensitivities, as each meets Oeko-Tex Standard 100. They feel smooth to the touch after many wash cycles, making this set a very worthwhile choice, even considering the cost. llbean.com
Frette Doppio Ajour They cost more than some high-quality mattresses, but the Frette Doppio Ajour are worth this high price tag; in fact, they're the exact sheets you'll find in some of the most prestigious hotels across the globe. Every set is made in Italy and comes in soft colors that can complement decor from rustic to modern. frette.com
Cultiver Linen Those living in hot climates would do well to consider the Cultiver Linen, which live up to their name thanks to top-notch linen woven from European flax that is not mixed with any lesser quality materials. Not only that, but each set is packaged in a linen bag for tidy storage. cultiver.com
