With all the lovely things summer brings, sticky, sweaty nights are definitely not one of them. If you live in a city apartment with only a low-powered window AC unit to keep you cool as the temperature rises, you know the struggle. The solution to those summer nights that are just too damn hot (besides central air, that is)? Eucalyptus sheets.
Eucalyptus sheets, which are crafted from eucalyptus trees, can be a godsend to hot sleepers. The breathable fabric is cool to the touch and able to help regulate body temperature and wick away moisture and sweat for a more comfortable sleep. They’re also hypoallergenic and resist bacteria growth, so for those of us with sensitive or easily inflamed skin, eucalyptus is the way to go.
Plus, you can rest easy knowing that eucalyptus—which is grown on sustainably managed farms—takes a fraction of the water that cotton does to thrive, making eucalyptus sheets an eco-friendly bedding option, too. All in all, we’re going on record saying that eucalyptus sheets are this season’s number one summer must-have!
Here, the best eucalyptus sheets out there.
Buffy Eucalyptus Sheet Set
Buffy’s eucalyptus sheets are a fan favorite amongst those already in love with the cooling fiber, and they're making new converts everyday. The fabric—made entirely from eucalyptus and 100 percent recycled thread—is cozy and cloud-like, softer than your typical linen, and so much airier, too. They even get softer with every wash—which the brand encourages you to do in cold water to slash energy emissions.
Another bonus? You’ll find no harsh chemicals here: The sheets are available in six gorgeous colors, all of which come from plant-based natural dyes. The peaceful light blue hue, for instance, is dyed using indigo, safflower, and rose, while the darling blush shade comes from a combination of walnut, turmeric, and gardenia. Here’s to all the lazy Sunday mornings you’ll spend wrapped up in these!
Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Lyocell Sheet Sets
Is there anything worse than a fitted sheet popping off the edge of your bed in the middle of the night? Well, yes—but that doesn’t mean it isn’t super annoying! Luckily, with these sheets, that frustrating occurrence can be a thing of the past.
Sheets & Giggles' deep-pocket sheets will stay put on your bed, and this particular set promises to snugly hug mattresses that are up to 20 inches thick (for reference, the average mattress is just nine to 12 inches!). Additionally, each piece from this Sheets & Giggles set is created from 100 percent eucalyptus lyocell, resulting in ultra-breathable, crazy soft sheets. We also love the brand’s commitment to zero-plastic packaging.
Eucalypso Deluxe Sleep Bundle
Calling all acne sufferers! Eucalypso sheets don’t trap bacteria and moisture on their surface (like cotton bedding tends to do) so they won’t become a breeding ground for pimples—even if you skip laundry day. Made from 100 percent eucalyptus derived fibers, they’re also snuggly soft and impossibly smooth.
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, know that the brand’s production process totes an impressively low environmental impact, using 10 times less water than it does to produce cotton sheets, 99 percent of which is recycled and reused.
If you’re the type who wants it all at once, Eucalypso’s deluxe sleep bundle is here to serve. This collection not only includes sheets and pillowcases, but a duvet cover as well so you can reap eucalyptus’s many benefits in all aspects of your bedding.
The Beach People Eucalyptus Sheet Set
The Beach People sheets look like the kind you would see in a breezy seaside home whose bedroom windows are all left open, so the fabric smells of deliciously salt-tinged ocean air. And fortunately, these sheets are just as comforting as they look.
With a blend of eucalyptus and long-fiber cottons, the silk-like fabric is lovely and light, boasting optimum breathability and cooling capabilities. The three neutral color options are serene and dreamy, and each set comes complete with a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases.
Sweave Core Sheet Set
If concerns about staying warm come winter give you pause when considering cooling eucalyptus sheets, this set from Sweave might just convince you to "add to cart." Sweave combines eucalyptus-derived fibers with luxurious Egyptian cotton, so you’ll remain comfortable no matter the season.
The moisture-wicking fabric will keep you at the perfect temperature for optimal sleep, and is also resistant to not only wrinkles, but also dust, mold, and mites. With a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and a pair of pillowcases all included, this set is truly the superhero of sheets.
Grand Paisley 300-Thread Count Tencel Lyocell Collection
We love a pretty print and there’s none prettier than the dainty paisley on these pale pink sheets. There’s a lot more to love here beyond color, too: Tencel Lyocell is a natural fiber sustainably derived from eucalyptus trees, resulting in fabric that’s temperature regulating, lightweight, and breathable.
With a sateen weave that adds to the luxe look, the collection is also naturally hypoallergenic and resists bacterial growth, making it a great choice for sensitive skin. The fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillowcases are all sold separately so you can get just what you need and nothing you don’t.
Olive + Crate PerfectSleep Tencel Sheets
Have you ever bought bedding online only to have it arrive and realize it’s not nearly as comfy as you hoped? No one wants to get stuck with scratchy sheets—and Olive + Crate gets that, so they offer a 60-day sleep test. If their sheets don't grant you sweet dreams, simply return them for a refund. But chances are, you’re not going to want to give ‘em up!
Olive + Crate’s PerfectSleep Tencel Sheets are made from 100 percent eucalyptus fibers that actively wick away moisture and regulate temperature, making sweaty nights a thing of the past. Each set comes complete with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases, and they’re available in four neutral hues. They’re also sustainably and ethically sourced, so can sleep well knowing your purchase was an eco-friendly one.
West Elm Tencel Ombre Sheet Set
Hello, gorgeous! If you’re sick of solid-colored sheets, this ombre set might pique your fancy. With a watercolor-like finish, they’re nothing short of stunning. But it’s not just looks that this set has going for it.
Crafted from 100 percent Tencel Lyocell, this set is made from sustainable eucalyptus fibers that leave each piece (the king and full-sized sets include a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases) cool to the touch and absorbent, while the 300-thread count adds luxurious softness. Plus, they’re also OEKO-TEX certified, which means that they’re guaranteed to be free of over 300 substances proven harmful to both you and the environment.
Tuft and Needle Jersey Sheet Set
Love the cozy, never-want-to-get-out-of-bed feeling of jersey sheets, but are intrigued by the cooling capabilities of eucalyptus? Then allow us to introduce you to Tuft and Needle. Among this beloved bedding and mattress brand’s offerings is a sheet set that blends the best of both worlds—the unparalleled softness of jersey fabric and the temperature-regulating superpowers of eucalyptus.
A cotton and Tencel Lyocell hybrid, these sheets are gentle on skin, breathable, and moisture-wicking. Plus, they’re extra stretchy, and resist normal bedding woes, such as pilling and wrinkles. What’s not to love?
Eucalyptus Origins Tencel Lyocell 600-Thread-Count Sheet Set
A high thread count usually comes with a high price tag to match—a total bummer since thread count is usually an indicator of quality. A sheet’s thread count is the number of horizontal and vertical threads woven together per square inch, and, while not the only factor at play when it comes to how luxe a fabric feels, a higher thread count can definitely affect a sheet's softness and durability. Hence, the typically steep price tag.
Not with this sheet set though. This baby boasts both an impressive thread count—600, to be exact!—and a totally reasonable price tag, clocking in at under $80 for a queen- or king-sized set. Included in the collection is a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases, all of which tote breathability and moisture-wicking capabilities.
