My Experience

The Saatva Dream’s Lofton organic cotton sheets can be a viable option for those who desire high-quality organic sheets that are sustainably produced. The sheets are long-staple cotton, meaning they’re durable and won’t pill or deteriorate after washing and drying. They’re also Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified and Fair Trade Certified which is a plus for those who prioritize the environment.

 

That said, it’s imperative to follow the care instructions on the sheets. Don’t dry them on a high heat setting, and try to remove them when they are still warm and lay them directly on the bed to avoid wrinkling (although there will most likely still be some wrinkles). Sleepers can iron the sheets on a lower heat setting to remove the remaining wrinkles if they’re still noticeable and bothersome.

The sheets work with mattresses up to 15″ deep; they come slightly oversized so that when they’re washed and dried they can shrink but will still fit the bed properly.

Saatva’s sheets are single-ply cotton, which means they have a light hand-feel and they’re highly breathable; even though they are sateen weave, they don’t have a heavy, satin-like feel that is characteristic of that weave. This also means they’re on the more delicate side and if they’re going to maintain their performance they need to be cared for gently and not scorched on a high heat setting in the dryer.

For this reason, I do recommend them for hot sleepers and people who live in warmer climates. Typically, I say sateen is better for colder climates, but these are light enough to work for hot sleepers.

In terms of thread count, Saatva thought carefully about the 300-thread count on this sheet set. Thread count is a count of the number of horizontal and vertical threads, called warp and weft, in one square inch. Not only are the sheets 300-thread count but they’re a sateen weave of the long-stape cotton is not a one under, one over weave, like percale, it’s one under two over or another combination. This often makes more a heavier and more satin-like feel. Saatva believes the 300 thread count and the specific characteristics of the sateen wave make for the perfect balance.

Saatva’s Lofton sheets come with two certifications, Global Organic Textile Standard certification, which means that it’s been through a leading global production standard for organic textiles that aims to be ecologically and socially responsible within the world of textile manufacturing and labeling.

The Free Trade Certification relates to the people creating the sheets; this certification means that the Lofton sheets sold by Saatva meet standards set for fair working conditions and wages for workers.

The sheets come in three esthetically pleasing, neutral colors and a nice canvas bag to store them in if needed. At $195, they’re not inexpensive, but they’re surely a high-quality set of cotton sheets that should last a long time if cared for appropriately.

Overall

Hands down these are a truly gorgeous set of organic and sustainable sheets. I think it’s helpful that they’re GOTS certified and Fair Trade Certified, so everyone can feel good about putting them on any family member’s bed.

Yes, they’re on the pricier side and prone to wrinkles; they’re also on the lighter and crisper side, despite being a sateen weave that is known for being more satin-like.

Overall, I do think it’s worth checking them out (especially given their 45-day return policy) if they fit in the budget and eco-friendly crisp cotton sheets are a priority.
