"The second I pulled these sheets from Sweave out of the package, I was sold. The feel was softer and smoother than the cotton sateen sets I’d used for years; that’s thanks to a mix of cotton and Tencel, which is a fabric made from eucalyptus. My boyfriend said they felt slick, but I actually really liked that—it reminded me a little bit of the feel of satin. Sweave says that their blend of cotton and eucalyptus—combined with a percale fabric weave—helps keep the sheets from feeling too slippery, a common complaint when it comes to Tencel.
The true test, of course, was how they felt while sleeping. While I can’t report on the thoughts of Sleeping Me, I can say that the rate at which I woke up during the night to kick off the covers definitely declined as compared to nights with cotton sheets. Both the flat and fitted sheets feel soft and not at all stifling; they’re smooth but not stiff, like cotton percale can be.
One thing that I’ve been happy to notice is that these sheets are less prone to wrinkles, and so far, seem to hold onto their bright white color better than my older cotton sheets. Eucalyptus fibers don’t play nicely with bleach, so Sweave recommends white vinegar as a substitute to refresh the crisp color; I haven’t had to do this yet, in part because of how new they are, and in part because I think these discolor less easily than 100 percent cotton.
If you, like me, turn into a living, breathing, snoring furnace when you close your eyes, these sheets are a worthy buy.
