If you're tired of scratchy, ill-fitting bedding ruining your sleep, then it's probably time to switch to a set of comfortable bed sheets. Knowing which bedding characteristics you want to prioritize can help guide the shopping process. Keep in mind that the quality of the thread is more important than thread count when it comes to how comfortable (and soft) your sheets are. "Look for the terms 'long-staple cotton' or 'extra-long-staple cotton' in the description instead," Karin Sun, CEO and founder of Crane & Canopy previously told Real Simple. "These long fibers are turned into the finer threads that indicate quality."

While some people are looking for maximum comfort, others may want extra warmth or breathability. Other factors to consider when shopping for the most comfortable sheets include the finish, like percale or sateen, and whether any dyes are used. In order to find the most comfortable sheets, we had our editors and writers test several brands and provide honest feedback. We considered each sheet set for softness, weight, comfort, and value. Brooklinen's Linen Core Sheet Set, which is lightweight, breathable, and 100% linen, is one of our favorites. They're also made from 100% European flax and Standard 100 OEKO-TEX certified, so you can sleep soundly on these high-quality sheets.

To help narrow down your choices, here are the best sheets currently on the market.

These are the most comfortable sheets to buy in 2022:

1 Brooklinen Linen Sheet Set

From $260 (was $289), brooklinen.com

Brooklinen's lightweight linen sheets are one of our favorites. These sheets are soft from the start and great for hot sleepers. Made of European flax, this breathable linen has moisture-wicking properties and is the perfect choice for the warmer months. The high-quality fabric has a relaxed, natural look and becomes softer with washing.

One of our writers put Brooklinen's Linen Core sheets to the test while nine months pregnant. She shared that these linen sheets helped her "sleep soundly without sweating" and that they're "lightweight yet surprisingly cozy."

You can sleep comfortably on these Brooklinen sheets knowing that they're Standard 100 OEKO-TEX certified. They also come with Brooklinen's 365-day return policy. These sheets come in six sizes, from twin to California king, and 13 colors. Bonus: The fitted sheets are helpfully labeled with long and short sides, so making your bed will be easier than ever.

2 Mellanni Brushed Microfiber Sheets

From $36, amazon.com

Microfiber might not be the first fabric you think of when it comes to comfortable bedding, but these are Amazon's most popular sheets—and more than 187,000 shoppers have given them a five-star rating. This comfy set is smooth and, best of all, much more affordable than many other bed sheets on the market. Plus, there are tons of colors and patterns to choose from. The sheets are available in both standard sizes and varieties with extra-deep pockets.

3 PeachSkinSheets Moisture-Wicking Sheet Set

From $90, amazon.com

These aptly named Georgia-born sheets are as soft as the skin of a peach. Made with a high-performing smart fabric that's comparable to 1,500 thread count bedding, the moisture-wicking sheets are cool, soft, smooth, and long-lasting. In addition to an anti-pill finish, the sheets also have anti-snag capabilities and a nonslip surface so they don't slide off your bed. They're available in a wide variety of colors and seven different sizes, including specialties that are less common, like twin XL for dorms, California king, and split king. "These are the softest and lightest sheets you can buy without spending hundreds on super expensive sets," says ecommerce editor Megan Soll, who has been sleeping with PeachSkinSheets on her bed for 10 years.

4 Layla Sleep Bamboo Sheets

From $85 (was $135), laylasleep.com

Shoppers say these bamboo sheets from Layla Sleep feel "luxurious to sleep in." Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but the sheets are also environmentally friendly since turning bamboo into fabric requires significantly less water than cotton. Plus, they feel up to 3 degrees cooler than their cotton counterparts, according to the brand. Even though the sheets are only available in white and gray colors, they come in plenty of sizes that will fit a wide variety of mattresses.

5 Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets

The cooling sheets are hypoallergenic and come in six naturally dyed colors. Each set includes a fitted sheet, a top sheet, and two pillowcases. Plus, the brand is committed to being earth-friendly—it offsets CO2 emissions from shipments and uses recyclable plastic packaging.

6 Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set

From $319, cozyearth.com

Cozy Earth's sheets are another extremely comfortable option made with bamboo. They'll feel soft and silky against your skin and will fit mattresses up to 20 inches thick. Just keep in mind that they're only available in white. They're definitely on the pricier side compared to other sheets on this list, but one of our writers says they're worth the splurge—she noticed a difference in her quality of sleep after just one night with these bamboo sheets on her bed.

7 Parachute Sateen Sheet Set

From $129, parachutehome.com

These sateen sheets from Parachute are made from 100 percent long-staple Egyptian cotton. The thread count isn't advertised, which just goes to show that even with high-quality cotton bed sheets, thread count isn't everything. These comfortable sheets are ultra-smooth with a subtle sheen, and the set can come with or without a top sheet. "They're silky, smooth, and sumptuous—enough to make my unimaginably small bedroom feel like a luxurious hotel room," writes Christie Calucchia, ecommerce lifestyle lead.

Popular bed-in-a-box brand Casper's percale sheets are made of 100 percent organic cotton and feel crisp to the touch. The fitted sheets have deep 18-inch pockets so that you don't have to worry about them sliding off thick mattresses. The set is available in six soft colors, and you can even add on a matching duvet cover or extra pillowcases. Plus, the brand offers a 30-night trial period, so you can get a full refund if the sheets end up not being right for you.

The linen sheets are available in both regular and deep pocket versions to accommodate most mattresses, and they come in plenty of other colors and patterns
