Good news: You don't have to sacrifice quality for organic sheet sets.
Making the switch to organic sheets is an easy step you can take for a more sustainable lifestyle. Natural fibers like cotton are often grown using pesticides and fertilizers that can be harmful to the farmers, workers, and wildlife in the area. Organic fibers, on the other hand, don't use synthetic treatments and actually require less water to grow. And since growing the organic fiber is only the first step in production, truly organic sheets often follow strict environmental standards throughout the entire manufacturing process.
The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab tests bed sheets of all kinds for things like fabric strength, shrinkage after laundering, wrinkle-resistance and more. We also call in dozens of consumer testers to rate the softness of the fabrics in a blind comparison. The picks ahead are organic options from the top performers in our test, along with newer organic sheets from brands we love. We've confirmed that all of these picks are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which has strict guidelines on things like the dyes and finishes throughout the production process.
