There's nothing worse than missing out on a good night's sleep due to the heat. Thankfully, though, it doesn't have to be that way. These days, the super-saturated bedding market is full of innovations. We have our eye on everything from temperature-regulating mattress pads to weighted blankets that won't make you sweat, and our personal favorite: cooling sheets that make it so that you don't have to toss and turn to get comfortable.
So if you find your sheets are too hot and heavy, it may be time to ditch them and shop for something more lightweight. Natural fibers like linen and threads derived from eucalyptus and bamboo have a thinner, more breathable, and more moisture-wicking touch that can help keep your body temperature down while you catch your Zzz's. And many of them are more friendly to the environment, too, which is an added bonus we can all get behind.
Sold? We rounded up nine popular cooling sheet sets that will be delivered right to your doorstep in no time. Keep reading to shop our picks.
