Customer Review | “I was underwhelmed at first, but decided to give them a try and see if they softened with [the] wash. It wasn’t until I put what used to be my favorite sheets on that I noticed the difference. I tossed and turned all night annoyed with the feel of the sheets I used to love and when I put the [P]arachute ones back on I really noticed how nice they were.” – Rawan D.

Sijo’s sheets are so cooling and silky; you know the feeling of having clean shaved legs and slipping into freshly laundered sheets? That’s what our Sijo sheets feel like every day. This brand is dedicated to “bedding made better,” and its airy eucalyptus line is simultaneously cooling, lightweight, and supremely soft. (Don’t take our word for it, see the 1500+ reviews that tout the same!) We also love that you can order a sheet set without a top sheet if you’re like us millennials who prefer to sleep without one. 😉 Using 100 percent TENCEL lyocell, these sheets are also anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and free of dangerous chemicals.
Customer Review | “I never knew sheets could make such a big difference until my partner said we needed different sheets. We have ordered two sets and won’t go back to other sheets now. They are very cooling and soft and haven’t slept this good in a very long time. Highly recommend!”—Rachel M.

The core set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Returns can be made up to 365 days, so you can sleep ‘n’ see if they’re the softest sheets for you.

Not only are Coyuchi’s sheet sets endlessly soft and crisp (magically!), but they’re also sustainably made, saving up to 2000+ days of drinking water and nine miles worth of driving emissions. The Organic Crinkled Percale Sheets are another great option for warm sleepers, with just the right amount of wrinkle for that effortless “worn in” look. The organic cotton is grown in India, and every part of production is done ethically. If the retail price feels too out of reach, consider Coyuchi’s secondhand shop as well for discounted options.

Customer Review | “Really happy to support a small Canadian business!
