The Most Cooling Comforters and Sheets for Hot Sleepers

Tags:

Whether you’re a hot sleeper, dealing with menopausal hot flashes, or just live in a warm climate, your body temperature can be the deciding factor for getting a good night’s sleep. And while you can crank the air conditioning to cool down your bedroom, making a few key changes like using essential oils, buying sweat-fighting pajamas, and investing in a cooling comforter can provide long-term solutions for your sleep woes.

Certain fabrics and weaves make all the difference in bedding’s cooling properties. Cotton percale and linen are the most notable fabrics that draw heat away from the body. Check out these cooling essentials from the bedding pros at at Brooklinen.

  • Down Cluster Fill with a 100% Cotton Sateen Shell
  • Treated with Ultra-Fresh Antimicrobials
  • Lightweight: 600 Fill Power / All-Season: 700 Fill Power

This lightweight down comforter doesn’t sacrifice fluff for coolness. Plus, the box construction keeps the down filling evenly distributed, so you won’t have to keep fluffing to feel cozy.

One Brooklinen reviewer wrote, “The Brooklinen Down Comforter is my favorite part of my bed. Super cozy and fluffy and the right amount of warmth without getting too hot. If you sleep hot, you probably only need sheets and the comforter, extra blankets on top might be too warm.”

One Brooklinen reviewer wrote, “Allergic to down, so my wife and I purchased this down-alternative comforter. Incredibly light, so much so that you doubt it could be warm. But it has done well on our chilly nights and manages to regulate temperature well on the not-so-chilly ones. Highly recommend!”

Smooth and crisp feeling on your skin, cool to the touch, they are perfect for hot sleepers like myself. The texture of these sheets quickly made them my favorite and I won’t make my bed with anything else. I’m a Brooklinen Percale fan for life.”

One Brooklinen reviewer wrote, “The linen duvet cover is made of a durable, soft linen material that breathes so well even my furnace of a partner (he sleeps HOT) said it keeps him perfectly cool all night. I love the breathability of the fabric but am also kept cozy all night. It’s the perfect duvet cover!!”
