Summer is synonymous with so many things: Warmer weather, easy-breezy fashion and, unfortunately, overheating/sweating. The worst part for many is burning up throughout the night while they sleep. The silver lining is that it’s easily fixed with the proper sheets.
While most people opt for cotton and sometimes even flannel sheets during the cooler months, they forget that these materials need to be swapped for more lightweight and heat-repelling fabrics when the weather heats up. Instead of wicking away sweat and emitting a more cool-to-the-touch sensation throughout the night, these materials attract and emit heat.
To avoid this, switch to linen sheets for the summer. According to Magic Linen, linen bed sheets are perfect for hot sleepers because they reduce body heat and let air circulate freely throughout the night.
Linen is also the best sheet material for sensitive skin and is extremely comfortable. Plus, it’s one of the only fabrics that get better with time, so the more you wash them, the softer they get.
If you need help finding the best linen sheet sets, we’ve done the heavy lifting and found the five best options for every budget.
From the affordable luxury mid-weight linen sheets from Quince and the Amazon best-selling DAPU Pure Linen Sheet Set made from Normandy-sourced linen to the high-end Thuma Linen Suite Sheet Set that feels like hotel sheets on steroids, we’ve covered all bases with prices ranging from $80 to $295.
Also, each set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillowcases and comes in tons of sizes.
Check them all out in a bit more detail below.
1. Quince European Linen Sheet Set, $79.90 – $189.90 (Orig. $239 – $329)
Quince is known for producing bedding made using the same (if not better) luxury fabrics as its more expensive competitors like Restoration Hardware and Parachute at a much more affordable price. Its European Linen Sheet Set is 70% cheaper than its most premium competitor and woven from 100% European flax.
These sheets offer year-round luxury and feel just as good as they look. They also come pre-washed for maximum softness and have that perfectly lived-in vibe that only gets softer over time. They’re also specifically known for being super breathable and cooling.
This sheet set comes in 19 colors and five sizes (twin, full, queen, king and California king).
2. DAPU Pure Linen Sheet Set, 100% French Linen From Normandy, $121.99 – $133.99 with ticked coupon (Orig. $136.99 – $199.99)
Don’t sleep on Amazon when it comes to finding high-quality linen sheets. In fact, we’ve found that Amazon has one of the most comfortable and affordable options out there.
Made of 100% French linen from Normandy, Amazon’s DAPU Pure Linen Sheet Set is a customer favorite that’s been around for a while. The linen used was naturally grown and processed without chemicals or additives and was harvested in an environmentally friendly manner. It was also stone washed for glossiness, fine durability and a soft hand feel that’s super hard to come by.
This linen sheet set comes in 13 colors and four sizes (twin, full, queen and king).
3. Cozy Earth Linen Sheet Set, $152.55 – $211.05 (Orig. $339 – $469)
You’ve likely already heard that Cozy Earth is Oprah’s all-time favorite bedding brand — and they’re 100% worth the hype. I’ve tried these sheets and can confirm they’re some of the softest sheets I’ve ever slept on.
What makes these sheets special is their unique fabric blend: 70% viscose from bamboo and 30% linen. These are two of the most breathable and cooling fabrics available for bedding, making it arguably the best sheet set for hot sleepers.
Shoppers even said this fabric feels “degrees cooler than cotton” and instantly cools them down upon contact.
This sheet set comes in five colors and six sizes (twin/twin XL, full, queen, king, cal king and split king).
4. Brooklinen Linen Core Sheet Set, $194.25 – $254.25 (Orig. $259 – $339)
We love a Brooklinen moment. These sheets have an effortless elegance and ease, plus a casual style perfect for those who still want their bedding to look and feel as young and vibrant as they are.
The brand’s Linen Core Sheet Set is light yet cozy, and each piece is washed and dyed in small batches, giving them this playful, unique and individual character that’s so hard to come by.
Like the Quince European Linen Sheet Set, these are woven from European flax and come in 12 colors and patterns. When shopping, choose from six sizes (twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and cal king).
5. Thuma Linen Suite Sheet Set, $235 – $295
In my opinion, your sheets should be one of the few areas in life where splurging is acceptable, and these Thuma sheets are 100% worth it — and this is coming from personal experience.
These next-level linen sheets took as inspiration that just-checked-in hotel luxury feeling. Crafted from 100% European flax linen, the Thuma Linen Suite Sheet Set is extremely durable, charmingly textured, and exceptionally soft and has an elegant drape that you’ll only find in super high-end bedding.
Best of all, they’re breezy and breathable, so they help regulate your body temperature throughout the night and keep you from overheating.
This premium linen sheet set comes in three neutral colors and six sizes (twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and cal king).
