Boll & Branch Sheets Review

Boll & Branch are one of the most asked about sheets on my site.  They have a reputation for quality, and though definitely not cheap, they are at a reasonable price point for 100% organic bedding.

Overall I’m a big fan of the sheets, though I had a few complaints as well.  You definitely have to know you want this type of feel before you should make a purchase.  These sheets are a bit on the pricey side, but if you like this type of feel, you will probably like the sheets a lot.

Read on for the full Boll & Branch review.

Boll & Branch Sheets Review

You will love Boll & Branch if you…

  • Want organic bedding – Boll & Branch is 100% organic cotton with non-toxic dyes
  • Want a soft luxurious feel – these sheets are a Sateen weave, giving them a nice silky feel
  • Value tasteful and classic design – Boll & Branch does offer a few designs and patterns, sticking to a very classic look that I really like compared to other options (obviously you can judge for yourself)

Boll And Branch Sheet Set

You may not like Boll & Branch if you…

  • Don’t value organic bedding – though reasonably priced for the quality, if you don’t care about the organic component, you can probably get a similar quality at a lower price (I’d look at my Brooklinen review)
  • Want a Percale weave – Percale is a dry crispy sheet, vs a more silky feel from Boll & Branch.  One feel isn’t better than another, it really comes down to personal preference, but Boll and Branch only offers one type.

Boll and Branch Pillow Case

My Experience

To start, the packaging of Boll & Branch is really first class.  The box comes tied up with a ribbon, and the sheets come in three separate wraps tied together by a second ribbon.

Boll and Branch Packaging

After going through the wrapping, you are left with the sheets, with each component individually wrapped.

Boll & Branch Sheets Set Packaged

I bought the pleated sheet set (twin size), which includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillow cases.  There are several colors available in the hem, and other styles include hemmed, banded, trimmed, seedling, and children’s hemmed.

Out of the box the sheets were already pretty soft, and with this pair I actually used them one night before washing.  Still after two washes the sheets felt even softer and fit the bed even better.

Boll and Branch Sheets Out Of Box

The sheets were a great fit.  Note that the fitted sheet is actually quite deep, and in my opinion will fit a very thick mattress.  I had it on a relatively thin mattress (~8 inches thick) and it managed to fit this size as well.

I will say that the pillow cases looked great, but I put them on some pillows that were slightly smaller than non-standard pillows, and they did hang off it a little bit and hid the beautiful pleated pattern.  If you’re planning on making this sheet set look as great as possible, you’re going to need to consider the pillow size.

Sheet Construction and Company

This company definitely values eco-friendly and fair trade practices, and thus the sheets are 100% organic cotton and are manufactured in a Certified Fair Trade factory in India.  The sheets have 300 thread count in a Sateen weave.

The company offers a variety of other textiles, including duvets, shams, towels, knit blankets, and scarves.  For all products, the company sells direct to the consumer to deliver a luxury-quality product at a more affordable price.

Other things to note

  • They have returns within 30 days of purchase (note: shipping is not refunded)
  • Boll & Branch donates to Not For Sale, a non-profit that fights against human trafficking

Final Recommendation

I really love the feel of these sheets (I’m a big fan of quality Sateen weave) and love what the company stands for (eco-friendly and fair trade).  They are a bit pricier than other sheets I’ve reviewed, but in my mind are still a tremendous value.  In terms of comfort and feel, they might be my favorite sheets reviewed to date.  Overall highly recommended.

  1. I tried a towel, and honestly it’s just a towel. After just a few washes the gathering along the band has started to happen. That didn’t even happen to my old Martha Stewart towel that I think was purchased at K-mart. I’m glad they don’t use softening chemicals (certainly doesn’t have that overly soft feel of other new towels), but it should look good wash after wash.

  2. I received a Free $50 in store purchase mailing from Boll & Branch. This is because I purchased from them in the past. The coupon had no expiration date or minimum purchase. I traveled 20 miles to the only store in my area and proceeded to present my coupon for a pillowcase purchase ($%%). I was told by the manager that my coupon was an old one and that they “corrected” the mailings to include a $200 minimum purchase. No apology or offer of any kind.
    I wrote to customer service and was offered a 10% discount!! Service of the customer is obviously lowest on this store’s priorities.

  3. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!! I just tried to contact the company with no luck. The sheets seem like gauze to me. They are so thin you can almost see though them! I was such a sucker to fall for the hype. They aren’t soft at all. It’s almost like they’re nonexistent. I’m so sorry I bought them. If you want to sleep under a thin piece of gauze, then these sheets are for you. Their website only contains 5-star reviews which should have told me right away that this was a scam. I really wish I had my money back. I threw away all of the packaging and went beyond the 30 days trying to get them to soften up. Washed them following the directions three times. No luck.

  4. I bought a pair, and have washed them at least ten times. The roughest sheets and worst feeling sheets I have ever slept on. Total waste of money.

  5. Received a king set yesterday. The pillow cases are huge! The point of a stripe on a pillow case is to see how nicely it goes with the rest of the bedding. These cases extend about 10″ beyond the end of the pillow so they just drape down. Our pillows are king size & they work perfectly with all our other cases. I called to inquire if I could exchange for a standard set but no can do. “Jessica” said she would send photos of beds to see how the cases can be folded to show the stripe. Never heard back. Returning today for refund.

  6. I’m ok with the sheets quality, I ‘m not ok with the width of the full size top sheet. It is a queen size and hangs too low, almost to the floor, so will not purchase again.

  7. I agree that the feel of my two sets of B& B sheets is very nice. However, I found that the company does not stand behind their product. Both sets have with just a few washings developed permanent severe creases in the hem that i can’t even get out with a hot iron. On one set it is like an accordian. I wrote to the company and they said too bad, I bought them over a year ago, and sometimes that happens. The second set is only used for my infrequently used guest bed, so they have only been washed less than 7 times, each time according to manufacturer’s instructions. I even sent pictures of the problem at their request, and the B& B response was the same. They offered me a 25% discount on my next purchase…which of course will never be used …why would I purchase more of these sheets at ANY price?

  8. Does anyone know how these sheets compare to MyPillow sheets? I bought one of their mattress toppers and didn’t want to risk buying sheets from someone else and risk the sheets not covering the mattress and the topper. With the discount the price point is about the same but didn’t want to buy two sets from them in the event these are better. Some of the reviews here are scary but at least you get a balanced view.

  9. My Boll and Branch sheets just arrived, so far I cant say I like or dislike them they were expensive but time will tell if they hold up. I am curious to know how much they spend on packaging the sheets in that very expensive box? Actually after opening the very expensive box and looking at the sheets I felt as If I paid 200 for the box and 50 for the sheets. I am not buying a box, get rid of the expensive box and lower the price on the sheets is all I have to say

  10. I was looking to purchase my second twin set from B&B, when I realized the twin sets come with only one pillowcase now and not two as before. I was highly disappointed. Need to look elsewhere.

  11. I love this blog and I’m always so impressed with the high quality of your posts (that you put out EVERY DAY. How do you do that and stay sane???). It’s always a treat to read your blog in the morning before I tackle my day as a stay at home mom of four young kiddos. Thanks for helping me stay sane! ☺️

  12. My sheets arrived yesterday. I read the instructions, washed on delicate in cold water, dried on delicate. They are beautiful and this morning I put them on the bed. I can’t wait to sleep on them. They sent two king pillowcases which I use but also need two sets of regular cases which I just ordered. For the price These sheets look and feel fantastic. I had Restoration Hardware sheets on the bed which I love but the pockets are not deep enough for mattress. The Boll and Branch are almost too deep. I had to tuck under. I highly recommend. I put in the offer code RUSH and got $50 off the price of the set and the shipping is free! Did not have to leave the house.

  13. I did a search for reviews. What B and B appears to have done is saturate the internet with phony positive reviews. The legit reviews I did find seems to be negative such as quality goes way down after a few washes. B and B seems to disappear and not respond to those wanting to return the product. There radio ads are bit ridiculous like 3 US presidents sleep on them…I imagine they sent samples to Whitehouse to make that stupid claim. They also guarantee that the sheets will keep your body at the “Perfect” temperature. A bit asinine to make such a guarantee.

  14. First of all for a set of sheets this expensive 4 pillow cases should be included. But the worse thing is the construction of the pillow cases. A Jr High student in Home Ec class would make a better pillow case than these. It gives Boll & Branch a bad name. I wish my husband would not fall for every product that Limba advertises.

  15. I have had the sheets for eight months. Everything you said about them is spot on. I love them and am going to buy another set with a blanket.

  16. I would bet several of the above negative reviewers have never actually bought and slept on a set of these sheets.

    They are great sheets. I feel like they actually sleep cooler than many of my past sheet sets.

    They are very generously sized… The fitted sheet has a big rubberband in it that makes it suck down around the mattress, and the top sheet is easily two feet larger than any of my other sets. It’s nice.

    I “fell for the advertising” too, but I am really liking my $190 investment.

    • Joe, I completely agree. I have three sets..they’re at least two years old. I don’t have one complaint. They are the most comfortable sheets I’ve ever owned. And, not one set has a rip, tear or any pilling after years of using them and washing over and over again.

  17. They sent standard pillow cases with my king size sheet set. They said many people want a standard set. When I asked them to replace just the pillow cases, they said they could not and that I would have to send everything back. I didn’t want to go through the hassle and for the price you pay, you would think they would take care of their customers. Anyway, the sheets are OK–If you like crisp new sheets, this is not your company. You are better off buying high end sheets at Bloomingdales or Macys.

  18. I admit, I succumbed to the advertising pressure … and, in a moment of weakness, handed over $250 to Boll & Branch. Waste of $250. Long story (involving communication with the company) my bottom line is: don’t rely on advertising hype. Sheets just as “sleepable” are available elsewhere at a far lower price.

    • Thank you for the heads up ! I was about to succumb to the advertising pressure just before I read your comment. Thank you for sharing your valuable lesson that these sheets are just pricey for no good reasons involved !

  19. I must have gotten someone else’s sheets shipped to me!! They are NOT sateen style, feel much more like muslin! I am not able to iron out the wrinkles using spray starch and steam!! What happened???

  20. Just opened the box and to my horror the fitted sheet had 9-12 stains on them!!! Looked like the local whorehouse tried them for free for 30 days. What Kind of a company ships you messed up sheets? Top sheet was stained too. Freaking gross. Reported it to Attorney General for a scam and a public health issue.

    • Roxie, I have three sets. The youngest set is at least 2 years old. No rips, no tears, no pilling. They get more comfortable every time they’re washed. I can’t even try to think of a complaint, other than I wish they were cheaper! I don’t like to try money away and in this case, I didn’t. I would recommend these to anyone.

  21. They look a bit too thin. I can almost see right through it and if that’s right out of the box, what will happen in a few months or years?
