The best linen sheets are breathable, cool and really freaking comfortable

You know that comfy, don't-want-to-move feeling you have lying in bed on a lazy Saturday morning? Or when you're curled up on a beach hammock, with the breeze blowing over your body? A good set of linen sheets, with their superior softness and breathability, can deliver that same feel. Unlike cotton, which can feel crisp and silky, linen sheets have an airy quality to them. But there's also a slight weight to the fabric, almost like a light blanket, which can be very soothing to sleep in.

Plus, linen naturally wicks moisture away from the body better than cotton, so it keeps you feeling dry yet comfortably cozy in the summertime. It can also save a relationship. Because linen does such a good job of regulating temperature, it's ideal if you sleep hot and your partner is always cold (and vice versa). Ready to switch? We've rounded up some of the best options to buy.
