Presidents’ Day Mattress Sales & Sleep Deals 2021

Comfort is key to bedding, and these soft, cozy picks are available at great prices during Wirecutter Sleep Week.

Linen is a great material for people who are prone to overheating at night – it feels light against the skin and wicks away moisture better than cotton. The Cultiver linen duvet cover is soft, smooth and extremely breathable. As our guide writer mentions, its rough texture gives a bed an “artfully crumpled” look. It’s also available in 17 colors and prints so you’re likely to find something that suits your style.

Cultiver linen leaves

The Cultiver Linen Sheet Set, one of the softer linen sets we tested, includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two pillowcases. Just like the duvet cover, these sheets are smooth, airy and durable enough that the fabric doesn’t wear out prematurely – in fact, one of our long-term testers has been using her Cultiver cover sheet since 2017 and says that this is the only linen sheet that has not developed any holes .

Authenticity 50 A50 duvet cover

As the lightest duvet cover we’ve tested, the Authenticity 50 A50 duvet cover is made from breathable, lightweight percale that can appeal to people who are hot asleep. The A50 is comfortable and warm for sleeping on chilly nights. It only weighs 2 pounds and doesn’t add much extra weight to a comforter. This heavy-duty cover is made entirely in the USA and is made from long-staple American grown cotton that will last for years.

Brooklinen Classic duvet cover

If you particularly like the feeling of cool, crisp bedding, you will probably love the Brooklinen Classic duvet cover. This light and soft cotton percale cover is sturdy and durable. We have tested this cover long term since 2016 and it is still one of the softest and most comfortable duvet covers we have ever tried. There are a variety of modern prints out there too, so it should be easy to find one that goes with the style of your bedroom.

Brooklinen Classic Core Sheet Set

For a slightly cheaper set of lighter sheets, consider the Brooklinen Classic Core Sheet Set. Although they feel a bit thinner, less crunchy and less soft than some of our other summer leaf picks, the Brooklinen Classic Core leaves are very breathable and still feel great against the skin. During the night, our testers found that these sheets were comfortable to sleep in and were good at regulating body temperature – a big plus for those who sleep hot.

Baloo Cool Cotton Weighted Blanket

The machine washable and crispy Baloo Weighted Blanket reminded our testers of a cross between quilt and duvet. This soft, well-balanced, weighted blanket is supported by glass microspheres designed not to clump together and ensure even weight distribution. The Baloo also comes with a 30-day return policy and a lifetime guarantee on materials and workmanship.
