These Sheets Feel Just as Luxurious as the Expensive Set I Love and Cost Half the Price
When it comes to bedding, I’m kinda particular. It’s not about the color, print, brand name, or detailing. The reason I’m so picky about what goes on my bed (and which mattress I’m sleeping on) is this: getting quality sleep is very important to me. Without at least eight solid hours of snoozing, I’m not exactly at my best — believe me, you don’t want to face my grouchiness after an uncomfortable night’s sleep. So when I find a set of sheets that works for me, I order multiples. The only problem? Good sheets usually come with a hefty price tag, and since I’m not willing to compromise on my Zzz’s, I often have to sacrifice the health of my bank account to buy the bedding I want.
Enter: Quince. Admittedly, I was skeptical when I stumbled across the home goods company that promises to deliver high quality at “a radically lower price.” At less than $90 for a Queen sheet set (my favorite sheets are a whopping $250), there was no way I’d wake up perky and ready to face the day, right? Wrong. I took Quince’s Organic Cotton Percale Sheet Set for a spin, and let me tell you, I was shook. After one wash, the set felt almost identical to the expensive options I’m used to splurging on.
Quince offers a range of bedding finds, including these linen sheets that AT’s commerce director, Mark, swears by. The innovative company keeps its prices low by cutting out the middlemen and handling as much as possible (including packaging and transportation) in house. That’s how they ensure their products are made from high-quality, sustainable materials with a luxurious feel — which let me tell you, their percale sheets certainly are.
This 400-thread-count sheet set includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases that are crisp (but not crispy), soft (but not silky), and lightweight (but not so light that you can’t feel them). They achieve that hotel feeling: never scratchy and always fresh. Available in three subtle, elegant colorways, the sheets have softened with each wash, and although they are marketed as cooling sheets for those who “sleep hot,” I find them substantial enough to keep me warm on colder nights.
I also love that Quince’s company values align with my own. Their sheets are made from 100 percent organic, extra-long-staple cotton that’s OEKO-TEX and Global Organic Textile Standard Certified. All Quince products ship directly from the factory to reduce their carbon footprint, and Quince only works with partners that pay fair wages to their employees.
A set of amazing sheets for one-third the price of my usual luxury buys might seem too good to be true, but trust me, it isn’t. My wallet isn’t suffering anymore, and I got up this morning chipper and ready to start the day — no grouchiness in sight. Sweet dreams, indeed.
