Few things are as delightful as sliding into clean, soft sheets and, as focus shifts to the bedroom here on AT, we thought this bedding basic was a great place to start. We first discovered Pure Beech modal sheets over 6 years ago while looking for simple, affordable bedding at Bed, Bath & Beyond — little did we know we would fall in love, and with a eco-friendly material, too! Not only are they amazing to sleep on, these sheets are produced in accordance with ecological standards and sustainability, and contain no pesticides or toxic substances...
Exclusive to Bed, Bath & Beyond, Pure Beech sheets are sustainably derived from the Beechwood tree in Europe and come in two texture variations. The 100% modal version is the more expensive — $69.99 for a full size set — and feels supple and silk-like without sacrificing any softness or warmth. If your preference is for a more formal looking sheet with a slight sheen then the Sateen sheets are for you. There is also a Jersey Knit — $49.99 for a full size set — which is a 70% modal / 30% cotton blend. While this sheet is delightfully soft, warm and a bit stretchy, the majority modal keeps it super light and much more refined than cheaper T-shirt style sheets.
We own three sets of Pure Beech sheets — two Jersey Knit and one Sateen — and love rotating between the textures. The Jersey Knit is light, fun and incredibly snuggly while the Sateen's lack of stretch makes it a bit more serious though no less soft. Our only warning is don't put the sheets in the dryer on high heat (the cotton setting) because we have had a seam come undone on a pillowcase. This is stated on the packaging (which we didn't read until after washing) and should be followed. Simply wash on regular and dry on medium and you should be all set!
