Our Favorite Bed Sheets

We make a lot of beds in our line of work, and while we’re guilty of paying more attention to the linens on the outside, we truly believe no bed is complete without the best set of sheets on the inside. We’ve tried and tested dozens of sheets of all kinds and it always comes down to one thing: comfort. Today we’re sharing with you what we’ve learned over the years and what makes these four Malouf sheet sets our absolute favorites!

1. Woven French Linen – If you haven’t ever slept of linen sheets you’re missing out. Big time! Not only do we love the classic and casual look of linen sheets, but they truly are like sleeping on air. The natural flax fibers easily wick away moisture and they’re incredibly breathable. Bonus: they get softer with every wash! They’re a bit of splurge when it comes to sheets, but they are every bit worth it.

2. Woven Tencel – Tencel (not to be mistaken with tinsel) is a relatively new fiber that’s all the rage right now. Unlike cotton or linen, tencel is a completely smooth natural fiber that, when woven, creates a luxurious silky soft finish. If you’re looking to stay on a budget, these are the sheets for you. Performance wise, these sheets actually wick away moisture better than cotton keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

3. 200 Thread Count Italian Cotton – Made with 100% Egyptian cotton parcale and made in the northern mountains of Italy, these sheets give you that soft draping look you find only at 5 star hotels. If you’re looking for sheets with the finest attention to detail, these are it! Can you believe that inside every package is a hand-signed certificate written by the artisan that crafted them? Needless to say, those Italians sure know how to make a good sheet.

4. 400 Thread Count Italian Cotton – A common misconception about sheets is that the higher the thread count, the softer they are. It’s simply just not true. The softest of sheets can only derive from one thing…high quality cotton. Just like the 200 thread count sheets listed above, these sheets are made from the best cotton you can buy while also increasing their durability and longevity. But we’d be lying if we said that drawn thread hemstitching wasn’t our favorite part! Gorgeous!

Great post, thank you! Can you tell me where the quilted euro shams and duvet are from in the second picture? Unfortunately, I don’t live close to Utah so I can’t pop in and see them at your store.

The quilted shams and duvet are from our store as well. Unfortunately we do not ship out of state at this time, but if you’re ever in the areas we love for you to stop by.

I’m sorry, I’m not sure what you mean by “what fabric do you use?” Sheets themselves can be purchased in a variety of fabrics from linen to cotton, and even tencel. Our Linen sheets do come in a variety of colors as well, including charcoal, sea blue, cream, and beige.
