Now that we’re heading into winter, most people are probably adding electric blankets and portable heaters to their bedrooms. But if you’re anything like me, you’re actively looking for ways to stay cool. Not only do I easily overheat while I sleep, but I also live in an apartment where I can’t control the temperature — so even when it’s below freezing outside, it can feel like the hottest day of summer indoors. 

Cooling sheets are the only thing that keep me from sweating throughout the night, and this eucalyptus set from Sijo is my new favorite option. They’re breathable and naturally cooling, as well as so soft and comfortable that I’ve been going to bed earlier and earlier just so I can have more time to enjoy them. 

Made from 100 percent eucalyptus fabric that was sustainably farmed in Austria, the buttery-soft sheets are certified Oeko-Tex—meaning no harmful chemicals were used to make them, so they’re safe for your skin and the environment. In addition to being eco-friendly, the sheets are antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, and static-free. 

There are six bedding sizes available, ranging from Twin to California King, and you can choose between two different sets, one that comes with a flat sheet and one that doesn’t—which is helpful for someone like me who doesn’t sleep with a flat sheet and never knows what to do with the extra bedding. Plus, the sheets come in seven easy-to-match colors, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a set that matches your bedroom’s decor. 

And it’s not just me who’s a fan. The cloud-like sheets only launched recently, but they’ve already racked up a near-perfect rating from shoppers. “Really nice and soft sheets,” one customer wrote. “It feels like I'm sleeping on soft cool clouds. I wake up so much more refreshed.”

Another added, “I was worried they were going to be too shiny for me at first, but I washed them (as instructed) and they’re just the perfect balance of luxury now. I will definitely be buying a couple more sets in different colors.”

Even though the sheets look and feel super luxe, they are more affordable than many other comparable bedding brands, with prices starting at just $105 a set. An added bonus: The brand offers a 30-day trial period, so if you don’t love the sheets as much as you thought you would, you can return them for a refund.
