Getting under the covers during the summer season isn't always a comfortable experience. High temperatures and humid days can result in tossing and turning all night as your body attempts to beat the heat. You might assume that buying portable fans and cranking up the air conditioning are your best defenses against summer weather, but did you know certain kinds of sheet sets can also help you stay cool? Sustainable, airy fabrics like silk, eucalyptus, bamboo, organic cotton, and other plant-based materials absorb moisture and fend off those flashes of heat. Penny Murphy, the president of Pioneer Linens, notes that, "High quality fibers act as natural temperature regulators, making sheets cool and breathable in the summer, and warm and insulating in the winter."

While some fabrics are naturally cooling, certain iterations' designs and styles of weaving also help regulate body temperature during the summer. "Percale is a type of textile weave that affects the way fabric feels," says Erum N. Ilyas, MD, MBE, FAAD, a dermatologist and functional textile expert. Usually 100-percent cotton, percale's construction utilizes a criss-cross weave, making the fabric lightweight and very breathable. "These kinds of sheets are ideal for those who live in warm, humid climates and during the summer months," Ilyas adds. Here, we've rounded up our favorite percale and plant-based sheets to help you stay cool all summer long, wherever you live.
