If you’re not a fan of the relaxed, rumpled texture of linen but still want a lightweight and breathable set of sheets, this is set from Casper is tailor-made for you. This set is made from a lightweight fabric called Tencel, which features a unique grid weave for superior breathability. Tencel is actually a brand name for a set of fibers called lyocell and modal (think of it like Band-Aids are to bandages or Kleenex are to tissues). And like all Casper products, the company offers a 100-night trial, so if you don’t like them, you can send them back for a full refund, no questions ask.

When it comes to sheets, percale is generally recognized as the gold standard. The word “percale” refers to the namesake tight weave used to produce the sheet and not the material it’s made from. This set, from luxury Italian linens brand Frette, is made from Egyptian cotton that is as durable as it is smooth (meaning it will stand up to plenty of washings). Its resilience also means that it will stay crisp and cool to the touch all night long.
