Summer is synonymous with pools…of sweat. It’s unfortunate but true. Especially when it comes to the one place you strive to keep fresh and dry: your bed. Sure, fluffy down comforters are inviting, and cotton is easy, but they’re a hot sleeper’s nemesis. Rest assured, we have relief.

But first, a little fabric talk. Linen, the ultimate fabric for summer wardrobes, can swathe more than just Montauk vacationers; its loose composition makes it perfect for bedsheets that stay cool. Looking for luxury? Percale, a closely woven fabric, has a crisp, lightweight feel that won’t suffocate you on the dog nights of summer. Then there’s bamboo lyocell fiber, a soft, breathable fabric that uses far fewer resources than conventional cotton.

Sleepy yet? Keep your eyes open for a bit longer. Below we’ve got the best sheets for hot sleepers, plus a few covers and pillowcases to ward off night sweats.

1. Boll & Branch Percale Simple Stripe Organic Cotton Sheet Set ($230)

Not even the most technologically advanced AC can compete with Mother Nature’s balmy 90-degree nights. But lightweight sheets, spun from Fair Trade organic cotton, can. Understated stripes give this super-breathable bedding a sophisticated feel.

2. MagicLinen Linen Duvet Cover ($165-$234)

Made from airy European linen, MagicLinen’s minimal duvet is stone washed for extra softness. “But linen crumples,” you say? Solution: Get over it. A good night’s sleep beats wrinkles any day, and a slightly rumpled bed can look effortlessly cool.
