These Sheets Feel Just Like Your Favorite Worn-in T-Shirt

lifestyle, amazon, these sheets feel just like your favorite worn-in t-shirt

We all have that one T-shirt we just can’t get rid of. It’s so unbelievably old but still looks and feels better than anything else in your closet, so you practically live in it. But what if you could bring that coziness to bed with you every night? Say hello to jersey sheets. They’re undeniably soft, comfortable and incomparable, and they feel just like your coziest broken-in T-shirt. In order to find the best of the best — and the ones that’ll last you the longest — we’ve put tons of sheet sets to the test in order to find the best jersey sheets available.

The Good Housekeeping Institute’s Textiles Lab has tested well over 250 different sheet sets and analyzed more than 10,000 data points in the past few years, to find the best sheets available. Every year, we test every type of sheet you can imagine, from your standard cotton sheets and airy linen sheets to cozy flannel sheets and luxurious silk sheets. We also evaluate the best cooling sheets for hot sleepers, organic sheets and extra-soft sheets. When evaluating each set, we test for various performance and durability features using specialized lab equipment and industry standards, then have dozens of real consumer testers try out the sheets themselves to provide quantitative ratings and in-depth, qualitative feedback. The picks below are from top-performing sheet sets and brands in our tests, as well as popular styles online with rave reviews.

1) Modern Cotton Harrison Sheet Set

$37.68

For a textbook T-shirt-like feel, look no further. These jersey sheets from Calvin Klein stand out among the rest for their softness and superior comfort. They’re made with a blend of cotton and modal, a rayon fiber commonly used in underwear and pajamas for a luxuriously soft feel. Testers gave the set high scores across the board and raved about how the stretchy fabric made bed-making a breeze. One tester even said, “I fall asleep faster with these.” Another called them a game-changer for couples saying, “I am always cold and my husband is always hot but not anymore.” While jersey sheets aren’t as durable as other sheets, this set had better wrinkle resistance than many we tested and had a snug, stay-in-place fit on several different mattresses.

Just note that the fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillowcases are each listed separately, so make sure to scroll below the listing to check the “frequently bought together” section or check out the brand’s storefront for a full selection of offerings.

2) Cotton Jersey Bed Sheet Set

$25.00

With nearly 29,000 reviews, an average 4.7-star rating and a price point at a fraction of our other picks, this jersey set from Amazon Basics is nothing to scoff at. It’s made of 100% cotton for that classic T-shirt texture and can accommodate mattresses with depths up to 14 inches. While we haven’t had a chance to test this set in the Lab yet, our analysts were impressed by its Oeko-Tex Made In Green certification, which means these sheets were found to have no trace of known harmful substances and were produced in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible facility. We also love that this set is available in a wide range of colors, from neutrals and pastels to more bold options.

Purple SoftStretch Sheets

$170.00

While Purple is known for its unique, pressure-relieving mattresses, its SoftStretch sheets are a best seller for their stretchy fabric and silky smooth feel — and they might be some of the softest on the market. They’re made of a blend of viscose, polyester and spandex, giving them an incredibly comfortable feel. They drape well over the bed without the corners popping up and coming undone. While blends that combine different fibers can be more likely to pill, these sheets held up fairly well in our pilling tests in the Lab. The set also didn’t crease as much as others we tested and had minimal shrinkage after multiple washes.

4) Favorite Tee Jersey Sheet Set

$180.00

While it’s best known as a sustainable fashion brand for its organic cotton clothing, Pact’s home collection is one to watch. The jersey sheets are incredibly popular and for good reason. Our testers and analysts were impressed by the high-quality, 100% organic cotton fabric, which felt thicker and more substantial compared to other jersey sheets on the market. This set also earned high scores across the board, excelling in comfort and ease of bed-making. Plus, one tester raved, “these sheets were so soft,” while another noted, “they aren’t super heavy and feel breathable.” We also like that these sheets are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), meaning they are made at a Fair Trade Certified factory and the entire manufacturing process is organic. Just note that some testers with full-size beds said the flat sheet feels larger than usual and can spill over the sides of your bed.

SHEEX Original Performance Sheet Set

$198.75

If you’re a hot sleeper or struggle with night sweats, try these cooling sheets from Sheex. They have a unique, slick feel reminiscent of athletic fabric like you might find in workout leggings or sports bras, with excellent moisture-wicking properties. These sheets were some of the most durable we’ve ever tested, with little-to-no shrinkage after multiple washes and no signs of pilling even after our abrasion testing machine rubbed together swatches more than 1,000 times. While testers were divided on how they felt about the unique texture, they unanimously agreed that the set was easy to put on their beds, stayed perfectly in place and helped them maintain a comfortable body temperature while sleeping.

And if you’re looking for similar cooling abilities with an upgrade in softness, check out the brand’s Midnight Label Sheet Set. It performed similarly in our tests but comes at a higher cost for the silky smooth feel.

6) Solid Jersey-Knit Bedding

$177.00

These sheets use combed cotton, meaning they’ve undergone a process to remove shorter cotton fibers, resulting in longer fibers that have a smoother feel and are less likely to break. While we haven’t tested this particular set yet in our Lab, Garnet Hill is a favorite brand for its quality sheets, with many top-tested sets from organic sateen options to flannel wonders, so we’re confident these will stand up to the test. Our analysts also love the range of colors available, from lighter pastels and gorgeous bold hues to understated neutrals.

There are several criteria we evaluate for every sheet set we test. Here’s how we assess each one:

✔️ Softness: Consumer testers come into our Lab to feel and rate each fabric for softness and comfort, either in a blind comparison or by sleep testing them in their own homes.

✔️ Dimensional Stability: Each sheet is marked multiple times, based on a standardized testing method, washed and measured to evaluate shrinkage over time.

✔️ Wrinkle resistance: After laundering, we move the sheets to a room with specialized lighting to assess any creases or wrinkling using industry standards.

✔️ Fabric strength: We prepare swatches of fabric and load them in a machine that evaluates tensile strength (called an Instron). This machine then pulls apart each sample to measure the force needed to break it.

The Best Percale Sheets for Year-Round Comfort and Breathability

✔️ Pilling resistance: Our Martindale Abrasion Tester (pictured) rubs swatches of each sheet fabric together 1,000 times to evaluate the pilling resistance.

✔️ Consumer Testing: At-home testers also rate aspects like temperature regulation, fit, ease of use and appearance and provide in-depth feedback on how the sheets held up over time as well as any likes or dislikes.

✔️ Material: Jersey sheets are available in a ton of different fabrications. Here are some of the most common fibers you’ll encounter:

  • Cotton is the most popular fiber for its soft, durable and “natural” feel on your skin. It has a unique breathability thanks to its structure. You may come across long-staple or combed varieties, which are often smoother and more durable, but be wary of Egyptian cotton labeling: Cotton origin is often hard to prove, and brands have mislabeled their sheets when they weren’t actually made of this luxury cotton fiber.
  • Polyester is a more affordable option with better dimensional stability and wrinkle resistance than cotton. But while it’s smoother, it may not feel as luxe compared to cotton, so you’ll often find that brands blend the two fibers for a compromise.
  • Regenerated cellulose fibers like rayon, viscose, modal or lyocell are made from wood pulp that is chemically processed into fibers. These materials are incredibly soft and silky, even when compared to cotton.

✔️ Durability: It can be difficult to tell which jersey sheets will be the most durable, and we’re often surprised by our test results, so we try to share as much information on how different sheets perform in our tests. Generally, polyester fibers tend to be more durable than cotton or rayon because they’re more resistant to things like shrinkage and pilling. But there are also cotton and rayon sheets in our tests that score higher than we expect, as well as polyester options that don’t perform well.

✔️ Depth: No matter how stretchy jersey fabric is, make sure the sheets you’re interested in can actually fit your mattress, especially if you’re using a mattress topper with it, as you’ll have to account for the extra height.

✔️ Certifications: The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the easiest way to check whether any sheets are fully organic, as it requires strict standards for the entire manufacturing process. In addition to this, there are other certifications you can look for to avoid high levels of unwanted substances in your sheets. Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Oeko-Tex Made in Green certifications ensure that there are no unsafe levels of chemicals, and the Made in Green certification ensures that the product was manufactured in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible facility.

✔️ Care instructions: Most jersey sheets are machine washable, but some may call for cold water or delicate cycles. If you get night sweats or don’t wash sheets regularly, washing sheets in warm or hot water is ideal, so look for ones that can withstand higher temperatures.
