A Reader Question for the Community: Cool Crisp Sheets

 

A reader question for the community:
Good Afternoon Muffy!

We love cool crisp sheets but we haven't been unable to find what we have in mind. The feel we are going for is what is remembered from nights spent at “grandma's house.” I've searched and there are many companies out there but they seem to be pushing the complete opposite of that style. We were wondering if your readers had any good leads?

Thank You!

  1. Have you looked at Thomas Lee? The sheets are the best we’ve bought in a long time. Cool, comfortable and they get softer with each washing. They also are relatively wrinkle free. You might be able to buy just a set of pillowcases to see what you think about the material. Their sale of 30% off might be good through tomorrow.

  2. I have been very happy with Lands' End oxford sheets (I only wish they were made somewhere better than "imported"). They have a nice, heavy, cottony feeling, not smooth/slippery like many sheets, and soften with washing, just like an OCBD.

  3. Red Land cotton...100% American...both grown and manufactured in USA!

  4. I know even though my Grandmother had a washing machine and dryer, she would hang dry her sheets outside. This captured the fresh smell and unique texture only sunshine could provide. I am embarrassed to admit that we buy the sheets from the Westin Hotel line (not preppy). They are so comfortable and soft. We bought them after a trip to the La Cantera in San Antonio a few years ago.

  6. They must be percale and they must be ironed

  8. Vermont Country Store sells 2 types of "grandma's sheets". The first is called Clothesline Crisp. The other is Resin Free.

  9. L.L. Bean 280-thread count percale sheets have been the closest thing I can find. I have used them for years and nothing comes close.

    1. I agree. We have several sets and they are the best we have found.

  10. Garnet Hill's Signature Scallop Embroidered 300-thread count percale is the closest I've found to my grandmother's Wamsutta.

  11. I own four sets of Pinzon cotton percale from Amazon. Don’t use a dryer sheet and hang outside to dry if possible. There is a blog that discusses the love for these crispy sheets called “Chris’s Old Fashioned Bedding”.

    1. I too have several sets of the Pinzon Percale sheets. They are the best sheets and very reasonably priced. In fact, I loved them so much that I purchased 6 sets of white, 2 straw and 2 spa blue color. I wanted to purchase more of them but they've sold out in my cal/king size. Regarding wrinkles, I remove them when they are still warm in the dryer, smooth and fold and they are ready to use. I'm not a fanatic about having pressed sheets though.
      Finding anything made with good quality cotton is rare these days.
