Winter in all her chilly glory is on her way out — but she’s given us a new priority: to stay as temperate as possible over the final few weather transition weeks. Ergo, we’ve got our sights set on a specific type of bedding that will regulate our body temperatures, whether we’re sweltering in overheated apartments or trying to keep from freezing when the radiators shut off. The miracle fabric in question? Linen.
While linen’s casual appeal may strengthen your not-so-effortless boho-bedroom vibe, its aesthetic values come second to both its premium cooling and temperature regulating qualities. According to bedding company Linoto, sheets fashioned from linen “[help] maintain a cooler body temperature than either silk or cotton during warm weather conditions, by a difference of approximately five to seven degrees Fahrenheit.” Although opting for 100% linen over other breathable materials may cost a not-so-pretty penny, it’s a natural and durable fiber that’s built to last longer than the cheaper alternatives. Oh, and it's also much kinder on your skin.
Ahead, a selection of the best super-soft linen sheet sets that will keep you sleeping just right through winter and beyond.
