As I’ve gotten older, figuring out how to get a quality night’s sleep has unfortunately almost become a hobby. Add on the fact that I live in a hot pre-war apartment building that has less than sufficient airflow thanks to my window AC unit, which means I wake up with night sweats more than I’d like. I’ve tried everything — melatonin, ear plugs, sleep masks, a tower fan — but it ultimately comes down to my bedding. As a shopping editor, I’ve rotated out my bedding more regularly than most to find the goldilocks of sheets, pillows, and duvets that keep me cool at night.

While I’ve finally discovered the ultimate cooling pillow, I’ve still been in search of the perfect blanket — whether that be a duvet or quilt — that didn’t make me overheat but still felt cozy. Enter: Quince’s Organic Airy Gauze Quilt Set, which boasts the perfect combination of everything I need in bedding. It feels super luxe and looks way more expensive than it is (it looks like another certain bedding brand’s quilt that our editors love).

What is Quince’s Organic Airy Gauze Quilt Set?

Quince’s Organic Airy Gauze Quilt Set is basically like sleeping on a cloud. It’s made with 100 percent organic long-staple cotton and has four gauze layers woven by artisans in India. The result? A ridiculously soft, breathable quilt you wish you could’ve been sleeping on years ago. Plus, it’s pre-washed for extra softness, and the high-quality cotton ensures that you’ll be able to use it for years to come. The set comes with two standard shams if you opt for the full/queen size or king sizes (the twin comes with one). It comes in five luxurious colorways that’ll instantly transform your bedroom into a hotel-worthy oasis.

Why I Love Quince’s Organic Airy Gauze Quilt Set

Here at Apartment Therapy, Quince has quickly become one of our favorite linen brands thanks to its high-quality pieces that are a fraction of the cost of more expensive retailers. Though I’d be remiss not to mention their equally stellar clothing and luggage sections you should check out too. In addition to offering cloud-like comfort, this bedding set offers the best of both worlds by feeling super cozy without making me feel like a furnace while I’m sleeping. And during the winter, you can simply layer another blanket on top if you need more warmth. As the cherry on top, it’s machine washable!

Plus, this set is made without harmful chemicals or pesticides and is made in a sustainable factory that uses renewable and solar energy, so you can feel good about your purchase all around. We never want to sacrifice style or quality for the price, and Quince allows us to have our bedding (and sleep on it too!).
