Tuft & Needle Bedding Fabric Guide: Which Bedding Material Is Best for You?

When it comes to bedding fabrics, we all have our favorites. From breathable linen to soft percale, the types of sheets and types of comforters we choose determine whether we’ll be cocooned in satiny bliss or itchy discomfort. So how can you tell the difference between each type? That’s where we come in. At Tuft & Needle, all our sheet sets are braggingly comfortable, but since their strengths lie in various areas, we thought it best to explain why. If you’re wondering how to decide between our linen, hemp, percale, or organic jersey sheets as the best material for you, read on for our bedding fabric guide.

Bed made with Tuft & Needle Linen Sheets


Breezy when you’re hot, but warm in winter conditions, our Linen Sheet Sets and Linen Duvet Cover are the perfect year-round sets. They’re composed of 100% European flax, making them perfect for hot sleepers and those wanting a cotton alternative. Plus, they’re naturally hypoallergenic, dirt-repellant and moisture-wicking, and they get softer with every wash.  Linen is highly breathable and naturally stronger than cotton. So, whether you want a cozy material that’ll stand the test of time, or you’re specifically shopping for allergy-friendly options, linen has the qualities to do it all.

Bed made with Tuft & Needle Hemp Sheets


If you want to save the world and feel cozy as you do, our Hemp Sheet Sets are the material for you. Sustainably made from 100% hemp, these sheets are lightweight, breathable, and naturally non-toxic. They’re soft without sacrificing durability, and once you’re ready to purchase a new pair, they’re safely biodegradable. Hemp is an all-weather sheet that helps you sleep cool and rest easy knowing your bedding is safe for the earth.

Bed made with Tuft & Needle Percale Sheets


Percale sheets are a standard in luxury bedding. Made from 100% SUPIMA® cotton, our Percale Sheet Sets and Percale Duvet Cover Sets transport sleepers into the soft, crisp feel of a hotel bed. Their high-quality cotton helps them start and stay soft throughout every wash, while their breathability and moisture-wicking qualities keep sleepers coming back for more. Perfect for year-round weather conditions, percale sheets maintain the superior softness, lasting durability, and luxurious feel of well-crafted cotton sheets.

 *We‘re proud to offer Organic Percale Sheet Sets in four limited-edition colors. Made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton, our Organic Percale Sheets uphold the benefits of percale while remaining sustainable for you and environment.*
