As fickle spring weather decidedly warms up to summer heat, there’s a high chance you’re looking into updating your bedding for the season. Buying new sheets doesn’t have to be a tedious process, but let’s be honest, there are a lot to pick from. And even after narrowing your search down to the best cooling sheets out there, how do you know which are right for you? Fortunately, AT editors have done the hard work of trying them out before you buy, and many have lots of thoughts to share about a variety of bedding for hot sleepers and hot weather alike. One sheet set that’s a great fit for both comes from editor-favorite brand Brooklinen.

Linen sheets are a great option if you don’t want to have to think too much about changing out your bedding when it gets hot. They last through the majority of seasons during the year, and never look out of place — unlike flannel in the summertime — which means you don’t have to go to great lengths to banish them to storage once temperatures start to drop. The Linen Core Sheet Set is one of Brooklinen’s staples that’s recently caught the attention of AT staffers doing their best to sleep cool.

What is the Linen Core Sheet Set?

Brooklinen’s washed linen sheets are the answer to your bedding needs when the weather heats up or fluctuates dramatically from cold to warm, especially if you’re a hot sleeper. Made from 100-percent European flax linen, the sheets are lightweight, breathable, and individually garment-dyed; which naturally gives each set its own unique charm. The sheets are available in six sizes from Twin to California King, and each set comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. Yes, even the Twin sizes! The Essential line of the Linen Core Sheet Set comes in neutrals like white, cream, and shades of grey. However, if you prefer bolder hues, look no further than the Limited Edition styles that occasionally include brighter shades of blue, pink, and turquoise as well as earthy tones like terracotta, khaki, and indigo. Oh, and they’re Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX-certified, which means they’re free from harmful chemicals.

To keep the Linen Core Sheet Set in top shape, wash them cold on the gentle cycle, and tumble dry low. Brooklinen conveniently offers their own plant-based and eco-friendly laundry detergent that’s compatible with their linen sheets, and you can even add in fabric softener to keep them cozier than ever. If fabric softener isn’t your thing, it’s not a problem: These sheets get softer with every wash, whether you aid the process or not!

Why Editors Love the Linen Core Sheet Set

“I have had linen duvet covers but not linen sheets, and I wasn’t sure how I’d like them. Sometimes linen does not feel that soft! But these were pretty soft out of the package and have only gotten softer after each wash. They’re really bright white, which is what I prefer of my sheets, and they’ve remained pretty white with wear. Bottom line is that these sheets are comfortable, seem high quality based on a handful of washings, and I have really liked the feel of them.”

— Megan, Home Projects Director

According to Megan, Brooklinen’s airy Linen Core Sheets are ideal for spring, summer, and fall. To make them work year-round, simply add a nice thick blanket to your bedding in the winter to stave off the chill. She classifies them as a luxury linen pick for its $299 price tag, so it’s a good sign that the white has held up in the time that she’s had the sheets. “If you’re looking for something that is more off-white, you’ll want to select the cream tone,” suggests Megan. She also notes that while the sheets do get softer with each wash, it’s good to be mindful of their fit on your mattress as you continue to use them and to keep an eye out for any potential thinning or loosening of the fitted sheet that would stand out from everyday wear and tear. If any issues arise, Brooklinen has a 365-day exchange and return policy to ensure you’re taken care of.

What Brooklinen Reviewers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.2/5

“I’ve been congratulating myself for making this kind of investment. The quality exceeded all my expectations. I’ve tried a competitive company before but the quality doesn’t come close to Brooklinen. Extremely satisfied. 10/10.”

— Carol M.

“So gorgeous. I love that it has that casual comfy look, but luxuriously soft and cozy feel. The bed doesn’t have to be made ‘perfectly’ for it to look amazing, which is super nice. We purchased the khaki sheet set with a cream duvet cover and the combo is great for our Japandi/MCM mixed vibe.”

— Kari F.

“I absolutely love the way these linen sheets feel. They’re the perfect sheet for year-round cozy vibes. Throw a fuzzy blanket on your bed for warmer nights, and take it off for the warmer summer months. I can’t wait to sleep in my bed every night in these sheets!”

— Taylor R.

If you’re looking for breathable sheets that last longer than one season, the Linen Core Sheet Set could be your new best friend. Just be sure to act sooner than later if you’ve got your eye on one or a few of the limited edition colors. Once they’re gone, they’re gone; and trust me, you don’t want to miss out.
