Wonderful sheets for hot sleepers
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2017
I'll admit to being a complete novice when it comes to bedding and it seems like sorting through Amazon's sheet and pillow selection is like navigating a minefield. There seem to be a lot of truly terrible and misrepresented products with a bunch of fake reviews telling you how amazing they are. So here was my dilemma: I recently bought a foam mattress and they're known for being hot to sleep on. I sleep very hot and I need cool sheets. I purchased a very well reviewed and widely purchased set of sheets before these that were advertised as "Egyptian quality" and "breathable". What I got was a thin set of polyester sheets that turned my bed into a sauna. I used them one night and woke up several times drenched in sweat, despite the room being 65 and having a fan blowing on me all night. So, I returned them and went back to the drawing board. I did a lot of research and found these sheets listed on a couple of websites as some of the coolest sheets you could find. I paid more than I planned for these sheets based on the promise of them being very cool and not retaining heat. They are a blend of bamboo and cotton and I really didn't know what to expect out of bamboo sheets, but read that they're as cool if not cooler than cotton. I'm pleased to say that they are incredibly cool sheets. They seem to retain no heat at all. They have completely negated the heat from the foam mattress. I wake up from sleeping several hours under a blanket and the sheets are still cool to the touch. Unfortunately, I have to remove one star because they are not very soft at all. I would describe them as very mildly scratchy. It's not noticeable when just laying on them, but if you run your hand along them it's not that silky soft feeling they say it is. From what I understand, they are a fairly low thread count which leads to them being not as soft, but it makes them much more breathable. Higher density of material = hotter sheets. Regardless, I'm very happy with these. They have made climbing into bed a joy again.
