Sleep In Luxurious Linen
If you’re in the market for new bedding, you may want to consider swapping out your cotton sheets for linen. It’s one of the more breathable sheet options—which is especially wonderful if you have a warmer body temperature—and it’s also more sustainable and friendly to the planet.
Moreover, linen sheets are soft, moisture absorbent, and more durable than cotton. They are perfect for keeping cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Are you sold yet? If you still need convincing, take a look at some of the photos below. We’re swooning over the earth-inspired tones and dreamy color palettes!

Parachute’s sheets are woven by artisans in a family-owned factory in northern Portugal. The brand adheres to the strict Oeko-Tex certification, guaranteeing their bedding is free from harmful chemicals and artificial softeners (such as silicon and formaldehyde). You won’t find thread counts listed online, simply because Parachute believes it’s the materials, not the thread count that matters (you can read more about their philosophy here). We don’t mind not knowing the thread count, though. With neutral color palettes and affordable bedding options, Parachute’s dreamy sheets are exactly what we love. The brand even has linen crib sheets to keep baby snug.

Pottery Barn is also passionate about environmental sustainability, and many of the sheet sets are Oeko-Tex and Fair Trade-USA certified.
Ethics | Woman-owned, thoughtfully-sourced
Price Range | $70 (pillowcase set) – $315 (king sheets set)
Cultiver specializes in 100% linen sheets woven from European flax. These airy sheets come pre-washed—they are put through a wash with natural stones and enzymes—for optimal softness. You can order a set—a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases in the color of your choice (we love the cedar and olive wash)—or you can buy each item separately to match colors. Other things we love about this brand: Cultiver is a woman-founded company, the brand is committed to upholding their guiding principles (you can read about them here), and Cultiver linen sheets are available for shipping to most countries.
