Are you a warm sleeper? Try linen and percale.
When it comes to finding the right bed sheets for warm sleepers, there’s definitely a balance that you have to strike. You want sheets that are cooling and crisp, but still soft and snuggly — which can sometimes be a challenge. The trick? To find sheets that keep you comfortable and cool without sacrificing comfort and getting in the way of your precious sleep.
If you’ve been wondering about the best bed sheets for warm sleepers, we have you covered! At Skylark+Owl, we put an emphasis on creating eco-friendly, cooling and soft sheets for every warm sleeper around. Here’s what you need to know when searching for the best sheets for warm sleepers.
What to look for in bed sheets
There are a lot of things to keep in mind when you’re searching for sheets in general, especially when it comes to searching for sheets for warm sleepers. First up, we’d always recommend looking for a company (like us) that places a big emphasis on creating eco-friendly, sustainable sheets. After all, these are wrapped around your body all night long!
Next, consider what feels good to you — especially as a warm sleeper. You’re going to want to look for a breathable fabric (like a percale sheet or linen sheet) that’s cool to the touch, and you’ll want to stay away from anything that traps heat (like a heavier sateen sheet). To make the most of your sheet journey, look for a fabric that’s machine washable and that even wicks away moisture and repels heat. When you sleep hot, there’s nothing worse than a sheet that makes you feel suffocated… so spend some time looking around at your options (and be sure to take your body temperature into consideration).
The best bed sheets for warm sleepers
At Skylark+Owl, we have two big recommendations for bed sheets for warm sleepers: linen sheets and percale sheets. Both of these fabrics are really helpful for warm sleepers and those who sleep hot, and they strike that coveted balance between cozy and cooling. Here’s what you need to know.
Pick #1: Linen sheets
Linen is a light and breathable fabric that makes the perfect bed sheets for warm sleepers. They’re remarkably cooling (no trapping body heat here!), and still manage to be impeccably soft, too. We recommend linen sheets to warm sleepers and to those in hot climates because they stand the test of time and live up to their use.
Our linen collection at Skylark+Owl is made up of two pieces: our flax linen sheets and our washed linen sheets, which go through an additional garment washing process for extra softness. Our eco-friendly bed sheets are also made in Portugal and certified by Oeko-Tex as free of harmful chemicals.
How to care for linen sheets: Machine wash in warm water on a gentle cycle, either alone or with items of a similar colour and fabric. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat only. Avoid using harsh chemicals.
Pick #2: Percale sheets
Percale is a classic, crisp bed sheet that tends to be a go-to winner for every sleeper… warm sleepers especially. The cotton sheets are breathable and cool yet still cozy and warm — making the ideal bedsheet. Made with cotton, percale has a matte yet durable and soft finish that will last you for years.
Our percale collection at Skylark+Owl is made up of two pieces: percale and washed percale, which go through an additional garment washing process for extra softness. Our eco-friendly bed sheets are also certified by Oeko-Tex as free of harmful chemicals.
How to care for percale sheets: Wash in cool water, either alone or with items of a similar colour and fabric, and tumble dry on low heat only. Avoid using harsh chemicals.
