The 6 Softest Sheets

Ad failed to load

When you turn in for the night, there's only one thing that can make the most relaxing time of your day 100 times better: wrapping the softest sheets around you and falling asleep on the bed linen equivalent of a fluffy cloud.

There's nothing worse that scratchy sheets that feel like sandpaper against your legs and bare feet. Though it's not always a fool-proof method, one of the best ways to ensure you're investing in the best sheets for your budget — soft, silky sheets that feel like butter — is choosing high-quality fibers and avoiding cotton sheets that have a low thread count. Generally speaking, 100 percent cotton sheets offer a moisture-wicking fiber that won't make you stick to your sheets and thread counts of 600 to 800 will usually feel better on your skin.

Your best best for soft sheets are those that haven't been dyed, but if you just have to have those gorgeous violet sheets that will make your bed more comfortable and more stylish, look for yarn-dyed fabrics that are woven from colored yarns (these tend to be softer).

These soft sheets run the gamut from microfiber to flannel and sateen weave sheets — but they share one thing in common: They all feel amazingly smooth on your skin.

1Wrinkle-Free Brushed Microfiber Sheets With A Deep Pocket

Sonoro Kate Bed Sheet Set, $30-$46, Amazon

These microfiber sheets are described by countless reviewers as "soft," "smooth," and "warm," thanks to the fact that they are double brushed. They are hypoallergenic, resistant to dust mites and stains, and won't wrinkle after washing. Available in sizes that range from twin and twin XL to California king, they boast deep pockets that fit mattresses up to 16-inch deep and the elastic band does a stellar job of staying on no matter how much you move around during the night. They even come in eight shades — like purple and lake blue.  

2A Soft, Breathable Bamboo Sheet Set That Gets Even Softer With Each Wash

eLuxurySupply Bamboo Sheets, $62-$121, Amazon

Using 300 thread count rayon from breathable bamboo fabric, this five-piece bamboo sheet set is even softer than fabrics like cotton or silk. Fans of this sustainable fabric appreciate its ability to regulate body temperature so that these sheets keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They feature a four-inch hem with piping, deep pockets that fit 18-inch mattresses, and come in eight shades that include sage and gold. Not only are these sheets safe in your washing machine, many reviewers report they actually feel softer after repeated washes.

3600-Thread Count Combed Cotton Sheets With Deep Pockets

California Cotton Club Sheets, $52-$66, Amazon

Made from 100 percent long-staple cotton with 600 threads per square inch, these soft sheets have a sateen weave that makes them smooth, but also really durable. They come in twin, full, queen, and king mattress sizes and a choice of five soft, neutral shades. The fitted sheet has all-around elastic that stretches over your mattress and these sheets are wrinkle, pill, and shrink resistant. With a perfect star rating review, fans rave about the "impeccable tailoring," breathability, and superior softness they discovered after investing in this four-piece sheet set.

4Eco-Friendly Organic Turkish Cotton Sheets

Cifelli Home OrganicPro Organic Cotton Sheets, $56-$75, Amazon

The long staple Turkish cotton fibers used to design these organic cotton sheets are responsible for proving a luxuriously soft feel that what one reviewer calls "soft, not silky." In other words: you won't slip and slide on these sheets, but they will make you feel like you're sinking into a cloud.

These are 200 thread count sheets with 16-inch deep pockets that are 100 percent triple certified organic (meaning: the raw cotton, dyes used to create seven shades, and production are all organic). You'll get a six-piece set that includes a fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and four pillowcases.

5Lightweight Flannel Sheets That Won't Pill After Several Washes

Pinzon 170 Gram Flannel Sheet Set, $40-$60, Amazon

Who wouldn't want to sleep on a bed of velvet, especially on a cold winter night? These velvet flannel bed sheets have a double-napped finish on both sides for an softer texture, but the weave is also breathable and won't trap heat the way you might expect from a heavier fabric. They come in six mattress sizes, including twin XL and California king, as well as six shades like merlot, graphite, and dusty blue. Both the flat sheet and pillowcases feature a four-inch hem and reviewers say, no matter how many times you wash them, these sheets won't pill.

6Seriously Warm Heavyweight Flannel Sheets With A Wintery Print

Pointhaven Heavy Weight Printed Flannel Sheets, $20-$52, Amazon

Pull these 100 percent cotton flannel sheets out on the coldest night of the year and rest assured they'll keep you toasty and retain your body heat better than most sheets. This four-piece set comes with a fitted sheet that can fit mattresses up to 15 inches and boasts all around elastic for a better fit. These sheets have a nearly perfect review rating with reviewers calling them "toasty and thick" with a great "classic flannel texture."
