Sleep experts have told us that percale cotton, which is crisp and light, is one of the best options out there if you’re looking for breathable sheets. But as with most superior fabrics, nice percale sheets can be expensive — fitted percale sheets from Matouk, a favorite bedding brand of interior designers, start at $95, for example. After sleeping on “really expensive sheets that I had to take to the laundromat to have specially washed,” actress Suzanne Somers told us she found a less fussy option in the sheets from Boll & Branch, which she now swears by. “They’re not cheap either,” she admits, “but they don’t need ironing, and the more you wash them, the softer they get.” Right now, you can get a queen-size set of these Boll & Branch percale cotton sheets — which includes a flat and fitted sheet, two pillowcases, and a reusable laundry bag — for 30 percent off, bringing the price to under $200. (Sets in full, king, and California king are also on sale for 30 percent off.) Spun of 360-thread-count, long-staple organic cotton, the sheets have subtle stripes that make them a bit more elegant than your classic white set. Those stripes come in two shades, too: a sandy dune and a darker pewter. Just know that the sheets are on final sale, so be sure to double check any sizing specifications and other details before you order.
