When it comes to bedding, I tend to stick to what I know. I have exclusive loyalty to a few favorite sets of sheets that I tend to rotate through throughout the year regardless of season. Percale and linen are my go-to materials — it’s not that I’m opposed to trying something different out, but when you feel like you’ve found the right fit for you, why rock the boat?

Still, the nature of my job means I’m constantly being exposed to new brands, and with that comes the desire to see what else is out there. One of my favorite new-to-me brands? Sweave by The Linen Company.

The Linen Company x Sweave has a rich 30-year history in the textile industry, with the ethos that bedding is one of the most important products we will ever buy. Honestly, same! I’ve said it before, but bedding is a totally worthy splurge in my book, and something I’m willing to invest time (and money) in to get it “right.” But here’s the best part: The Linen Company and Sweave take their commitment to the environment just as seriously as they take their commitment to quality bedding. Not only do they produce their goods with eco-friendly processes and materials (more on that later), but they plant a tree for every bedding set sold. Translation: You can shop with a clear conscience, knowing you’re investing in a brand that cares just as much about your sleep experience as they do Mother Earth.

Sweave is best known for its eucalyptus sheets, which just so happened to be a material I had never tried before. The mint green set I chose felt silky-soft the instant I pulled them out of the package, with an understated sheen that gave them a crisp, polished effect. In case you’re unfamiliar with the state-of-the-art eco-friendly material that is eucalyptus, allow me to give you a quick 101 lesson. Also known as Tencel, the fiber from eucalyptus trees is sustainable, hypoallergenic, and naturally cooling, with a breathability that will keep even the hottest sleepers temperate throughout the night. They’re also made in an environmentally-friendly facility that puts a focus on responsible workplace practices

One thing I really love about Sweave’s bedding collection is just how versatile it is. While most eco-conscious brands stick to a basic neutral palette for their offerings, Sweave has fun with patterns and colors, resulting in bedding that is personality-packed, playful, and good for the environment. After sleeping on my Sweave sheets for several months I can confidently say they get better (and softer!) with each use and have been awarded a permanent place in my coveted sheet rotation.
