I really like the sheets from Brooklinen. I get so hot at night and these are the first sheets Iíve had that keep me cool. I have the classic percale set. I bought my mom a set for Christmas last year and she loves hers too.

I would stick with a lower thread ( 300-400) count 100% cotton, Egyptian cotton if you can get it. Lower count means more airflow. Maybe even percale sheets. Stay away from any microfiber or other non cotton materials. Read the label carefully because a lot of them that say cotton are now a blend. You want 100%.

Sheets with percale in them are the coolest!

Previous posters are spot on - you want 100% cotton, Egyptian cotton has longer fibers. Read the labels carefully, they can be deceiving.

Percale is a type of weave and usually comes in 300 thread count, but I have a set in 400. Stay away from sateen and damask - they are denser, and, IMHO, less breathable.

Iíve had great luck with Overstock. Vermont Country Store is another good resource for cotton percale sheets.

I just ordered some linen sheets, but I haven't tried them yet. I think they are supposed to help with that.

Do you think that these waterproof pads could help? You could try one, they come in a variety of sizes. If it works for you, you could get more. They would be much easier to switch out throughout the week.

When I had older cats they were very handy. Now I use them under the litter boxes to protect the floors.

I swear by Beech sheets from bed, bath and beyond.

I like the idea of using a pad underneath you, but I always find waterproof mattress pads noisy and hot. You could just use a regular mattress pad, perhaps cut to the size you want with seam binding stitched to edges if you sew.

Then if you wake up drenched, you can remove the pad, substitute another and go back to sleep.

Right now it's very hot here. We've got AC, but I sometimes get hot at night. For a top sheet I am currently using a VERY old, threadbare, percale sheet. Almost feels like nothing. I love it.

Cotton Sheets All the Way

I agree that you need cotton sheets. But you also need cotton PJ's. Cotton is your friend. Search for 100 present cotton.

Look at cooling pillows as well. They really helped me.

I hope you are sleeping cooler soon.

I also would like to suggest the cooling pillows. Mine are Columbia with arctic fibers. I got them at Kohl's. Whatever type you get, make sure they have the arctic fibers.
