What are Tencel Sheets?
Tencel sheets are made from the pulp of the Eucalyptus Plant, which makes them have an extra cooling effect while you sleep. This pulp is dissolved using a chemical formula, which is pushed through small holes and threads are formed, the fabrics of which then form into ‘Tencel Lyocell’, that is assembled through wood grown in a very sustainable manner to reduce the impact on the environment as much as possible. The temperatures of these sheets can be easily regulated. Tencel Sheets have the following key properties:
- Smooth and silky
- Extra cooling effect
- Highly durable
- Highly environment-friendly
What are Cotton Sheets?
On the other hand, cotton sheets are the most common type of fabric used for bedding material in today’s times. They are produced from the natural fibers of the Cotton Plant. Cotton Sheets can vary between Cotton Percale and Cotton Sateen. Different types of Cotton include Egyptian Cotton, Pima Cotton and so on. Egyptian Cotton is considered to be the most high-quality fabric used in different bedding items.

What Fits You?
Like we mentioned, different sheets may be best-suited for different types of people. Tencel sheets can be used by people who are hot sleepers, as the cooling effect of the eucalyptus tends to keep them cool. Moreover, for people who are looking for more sustainable options, then Tencel is the way to go due to their environment-friendly production process. On the other hand, cotton sheets tend to get softer after every wash, making them even more comfortable than before, and even easier to maintain.
