Maybe you tend to sleep hot all year long, or perhaps you’re prone to night sweats once warmer temperatures roll around. Either way, sticking to your sheets does not make for a good night’s sleep. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best cooling comforters (and bedding sets) you can buy right now. These comforters are made of breathable materials like bamboo, linen, or cotton, and have lower fill powers that won’t trap heat and make you feel smothered. Sleeping cool is the new being cool.

ettitude sateen duvet cover

A super-smooth duvet cover…

This duvet cover is made entirely of the brand’s signature bamboo lyocell but woven to feel like silk, so you get that smooth, luxurious feeling but better breathability. The weave is also naturally temperature-regulating and hypoallergenic. Slip this onto the comforter you already have for an instant bedding upgrade, or add Ettitude’s cooling bamboo comforter to your cart as well. ($194+, Ettitude)

Cozy Earth

A breathable comforter in bamboo or silk…

This Cozy Earth comforter is filled with either bamboo or silk — your choice — and both are moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating. (That said, the brand recommends that hot sleepers opt for bamboo.) You’ll love the anchor loops on the corners that stop it from moving around throughout the night. To complete your bedding refresh, bundle your order with the bamboo duvet cover and bamboo mattress pad. ($335.20+, Cozy Earth)

parachute percale sheet set

A crisp percale sheet set…

At least one of our editors has her eye on this percale sheets set from Parachute. Percale is a great option for hot sleepers, since it has that lightweight, crisp feeling you know and love from high-end hotels. It’s also a durable material that holds up over time, so it’s worth investing in. This one comes with one fitted sheet and two pillowcases, and you can even choose your preferred pillowcase opening (back envelope or side opening). You can also choose to add a top sheet, if you land on that side of the “top sheet or no top sheet” argument. ($229+, Parachute)

A pillow that stays cool no matter what side it’s on…

No more flipping it over in the middle of the night. This pillow is made with Casper’s Snow Technology so it absorbs heat and feels cool all the time. The foam is ultra-soft but supportive and is great for any sleeping position. We’ve also tried the mattress made of the same material and can confirm it lives up to the hype. ($149+, Casper)

Garnet Hill

A linen quilt that’s been on our mood board forever…

While it’s definitely an investment, this gorgeous linen quilt is hand-stitched and can be used year round. It’s breathable for the hot summer months and temperature-regulating for bundling up in the winter. Plus, it’ll get softer year after year. Any of the colors are what dreams are made of. ($299+, Garnet Hill)

coyuchi diamond cooling comforter

A comforter that’ll keep you comfortable year-round…

This one from Coyuchi is made of 100% organic cotton and arrives in a reusable cotton fabric bag — all fair trade certified. We’ve used this comforter and love its lightweight feel, but it still keeps us plenty warm on chilly nights or in an air-conditioned room. Use it as a standalone quilt (the diamond pattern is pretty enough to display as is), or slip it into a duvet cover for an extra layer of insulation during the colder months. ($298+, Coyuchi)

all season cooling comforter

An all-season comforter that adapts to your body temperature…

Sijo’s cooling comforter is made with moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating fibers that retain heat when you’re warm and release it back when you’re cold. In other words, you’ll stay comfortable all night long, even if you experience a hot flash. You can pair it with any of the brand’s duvet covers for a little extra warmth during the winter months. Make sure you don’t throw it in the wash with any zippers or rough materials to keep it in good shape. ($255+, Sijo)

Luxome cooling comforter

An elegant-looking cooling comforter…

Another temperature-regulating option, this comforter will keep hot sleepers cool and dry all night long. It has a lofty, baffle-box design for a cozy vibe (without added warmth). The sateen weave will make your bedroom look a little more luxurious. It’s oversized, but you can tuck the extra-long corners underneath your mattress for a chic hotel vibe. ($310+, Amazon)

Brooklinen white cooling bed sheet

A popular down-alternative comforter that comes in three weights…

We can’t talk about bedding without talking about Brooklinen. We’re especially partial to the brand’s down-alternative comforters, which come in three different fill powers for a customized sleeping experience. We recommend the lightweight option for hot sleepers, and the all-season option for those who tend to catch a little chill during the night. It’s made with hypoallergenic fibers within a 100% cotton sateen shell, so those sensitive to fabrics won’t have to worry. ($135.15+, Brooklinen)

Buy it
Casper cooling down cover

A comforter made of sustainable materials…

This down-alternative cooling comforter has a shell made from Tencel Lyocell — a breathable fiber made from sustainably sourced wool pulp — and a 100% recycled polyester fill. Its design keeps the fill fluffy and in place, so you’ll stay comfy throughout the night. Go for the lightweight fill (rather than fullweight) if you run hot. ($179+, Casper)

Buy it
Amazon Lightweight comforter

A cooling comforter that won’t break the bank…

This all-season comforter is an Amazon favorite for hot sleepers. Reviewers rave about how comfortable and breathable it is for those who tend to sweat at night. It has box stitching so the microfiber filling stays in place, it’s machine washable, and it comes in seven colors and eight sizes. ($29.32+, Amazon)

Buy it
quince linen duvet cover set

And a cooling duvet cover set that gets better over time…

This duvet is made from 100% European flax, which is already prewashed but will soften up more with each wash. Linen is the perfect breathable material for housing your comforter during warmer months, and this set also comes with two lightweight shams for a cohesive bedding look. Choose from 21 colors, including a very chic terracotta stripe. ($139.90+, Quince)
