If you’re eager to get away but can’t, let us introduce you to the luxe, vacation-worthy comfort of linen sheets. Linen sheets have been around, well, forever, but they’re definitely having a moment right now.
The super comfy fabric has a casual, low-key feel that actually looks good when it’s wrinkled. And it’s top for temperature regulation — meaning linen will keep you cool in the summer and cozy in the winter.
In short, there’s really no downside to bathing your bed in linen. Except for the fact that doing so will usually set you back at least a few hundred bucks… maybe more if you’re looking to replace all of your old sheets. So the sheets you settle on need to be amazing and deliver on everything you’re looking for.
Here, we picked 15 top-rated options worth considering that will turn your bed into a luxury escape.
First and foremost, we sought out sheets that have earned a reputation for being high-quality — they’re made with primo fabrics that will only get better with time.
Beyond that, we looked at features like customizability (what options do you get in a set?), color choices, and how long it actually takes for you to get your sheets. Price factored in too, but we went into this knowing that linen sheets, on the whole, tend to fall into investment territory.
Let’s just say that “inexpensive” and “linen sheets” aren’t typically found in the same sentence. (Unless you’re Googling “Why can’t I find inexpensive linen sheets?”)
Even the more budget-friendly picks on this list might cost more than what you’ve spent in the past on your bed, but trust us, the investment will be worth it. Most of these prices are for full/queen-sized sets, though a few brands sell their pieces individually.
- $ = $80–$150
- $$ = $151–$275
- $$$ = $276–$400
- $$$$ = $401–$600
OK, so out of the many, many linen sheet brands out there, which ones are actually worth shelling out for? Turns out there are lots of possible options, depending on what features are most important to you.
Best overall: Cultiver Linen Sheet Set with Pillowcases
Cultiver’s sheets have earned high marks by customers for their durability — you won’t find a hole in these babies 2 months down the line. We love that you can buy a full set in a huge range of colors or pick out individual sheets and pillowcases.
Cons: Despite the wide range of colors, you can’t get every single hue in every single size.
Best on Amazon: DAPU Pure Stone Washed Linen Sheets
Most of the top-rated linen sheets are only available direct from the brand’s website. Not so with these French linen sheets, which you can get on Amazon and have racked up nearly 700 rave reviews.
Cons: A few shoppers say the texture is a little rough and scratchy at first.
Super soft: Snowe Linen Sheet Set
While some linen sheets can be a little rough or scratchy (especially at first), these start out ultrasoft from the get-go thanks to the brand’s proprietary air-washing technology. You can get a single set with just sheets or buy a bundle with a duvet cover.
Cons: The color range is pretty limited.
Budget-friendly: West Elm Belgian Flax Linen Sheet Set
Linen sheets don’t exactly have a reputation for being wallet-friendly. Here’s a relatively inexpensive option that still feels luxe, comes in lots of rich colors, and is Fair Trade Certified.
Cons: Some of the colors are made to order, so you might not be able to get your pick ASAP.
Linen-cotton blend: Simple&Opulance Belgian Linen Sheet Set
Linen-cotton sheets deliver the same soft, breathable experience as pure linen, but at a fraction of the cost. These are made with 55 percent linen and 45 percent cotton, so they’re good if you want to get a feel for linen without committing full on or are looking for something nice-ish for a guest bedroom.
Cons: They’re not 100 percent linen.
Super customizable: Linoto 100% Linen Sheet Set
Picky shoppers, rejoice. You can build your own sheet bundles with Linoto, all the way down to details like the depth of your fitted sheet and special-order mattress sizes (like split queens and kings). There are lots of colors plus an organic option to choose from too.
Cons: You might have to wait up to a month for customized orders.
High durability: Parachute Linen Sheet Set
Terrified that the linen sheets you splurged on will get chewed up at the laundromat? Parachute’s fabric scores big on durability, upping the odds that your sheets have a nice, long lifespan.
Cons: The sheet set doesn’t include a top sheet, but you can add it on for extra moolah.
Price: $$ without top sheet, $$$ with top sheet.
Ultra lightweight: Rough Linen Smooth Linen Summer Bedding Set
If you tend to run hot when you sleep, consider this summer-weight set that feels straight up floaty. Also nice: The larger hems and mitered corners keep things looking neat, even when you don’t have 5 minutes to make up the bed.
Cons: The lighter weight might not work for winter.
Makes shopping simple: Morrow Classic Sheet Set Heirloom Linen
It can be good to have options — but sometimes picking among lots of individual bedding pieces can feel overwhelming. Morrow only sells their soft, simple sheets as sets, so there’s less deliberating while staring at your screen at 3:00 a.m.
Cons: Some of the colors are currently wait-listed. (But since most people aren’t buying linen sheets on impulse anyway, waiting another couple weeks for your new bedding doesn’t seem like that huge a deal, does it?)
Raw edge: Saphyr Soft Pure Washed Linen Sheet Set
The naturally wrinkled texture means linen sheets always have that casual, effortless look. But the raw deckle edges on these sheets really says laid back. The blush pink and baby blue colors are super pretty too.
Cons: The brand hasn’t racked up a ton of reviews yet… so you might feel like you’re diving into uncharted waters a little bit.
Bright colors that you can mix and match: Garnet Hill Relaxed Linen Sheets
Spent weeks deliberating about a multi-color bedding scheme? Garnet Hill’s range of rich hues can help you turn that technicolor dream into a reality. They’ve got a ton of fun, bold colors — and you can buy each bedding piece individually.
Cons: Garnet Hill’sshipping is expensive and generally takes forever.
Stripes: Brooklinen Core Sheet Set
Linen sheets tend to come almost exclusively in single colors. But if you’re a pattern lover, Brooklinen has a sweet striped option in white and charcoal chambray. The sheets are ultra soft and cozy too.
Cons: The stripes are the only pattern they have. Boo.
Makes your bed look neater: Primary Goods French Linen the Complete Set
Guys, the top sheet snaps right on to the duvet cover, so the sheets don’t get wrangled up while you sleep and you never have to spend more than 30 seconds making the bed in the morning. We’re honestly not sure why this feature isn’t standard on every sheet set ever.
Cons: The color options are pretty basic.
Organic option: Coyuchi Organic Relaxed Linen Sheets
Made with sturdy organic flax linen grown by French community farmers and dyed with low-impact dyes, these sheets are good for your bed — and the planet. Added bonus: The deep pocket and full elastic around the fitted sheet means it’ll fit most mattress styles.
Cons: They’re on the heavier side, so maybe not the best if you tend to sleep hot.
Literally the fanciest: Bella Notte Frida Collection
If you happen to want linen sheets with a breathtakingly beautiful scalloped lace edge that will make your room look like an Italian bed and breakfast — and you happen to be cool with spending a lot of money to make that dream a reality — please buy these.
Cons: In addition to being expensive, these scalloped edges make these sheets super delicate, so they’ll need some TLC on laundry day.
