With summer in full swing, you've probably gotten tired of overheating every night beneath your heavy cotton sheets. Perhaps it's time to do a little bedroom refreshing, if only you could find sheets that were as comfortable and cool as your favorite old concert T-shirt — almost like they weren't there at all. One company might have just the sheets for you.
Starting today, Parachute — the direct-to-consumer company dedicated to luxury home textiles — is rolling out a brand-new line of sheets that promises to be its softest yet. Not an easy claim from the company that has been wowing us with soft linens and cozy bathrobes for years now.
Named "brushed cotton," the sheets have what Parachute describes as a "peach-fuzz texture" that gives that very feeling of sleeping in your favorite worn-in pajamas. The 100% cotton sheets are brushed with a machine that works to break down the fibers, much like how cotton clothing wears down over multiple wears and washings.
"The brushing process used to create this fabric gives it a wonderfully cozy, super-soft texture, while maintaining a weight and breathability that is still incredibly comfortable in warmer temperatures or for hot sleepers," explains Ariel Kaye, Parachute's founder, in a statement.
The new sets will be available in three different earth tone colors: white, gray, and surplus, which is a cool gray. The sets will also come with two-tone duvet covers and shams for added dimension. The Brushed Cotton Venice Set (including a pillowcase set, fitted sheet, and duvet cover) starts at $339. Certain pieces are sold separately, like the fitted sheet starting at $100 and sham set starting at $69.
