There aren’t many organic sheets options on the market, so when I heard about SOL organics, I was excited to give it a try.
Overall the sheets are excellent, but they are not for every sleeper (read how they are unique HERE). Read my full SOL Organics Sheets Review for details.
- Want organic bedding – SOL is made of 100% long-staple organic cotton, plus uses a non-GMO seed to grow the cotton
- Are looking for great value – there are many other organic bedding options out there, but very few (if any) at this price range. SOL is taking advantage of the direct-to-consumer model to make organic bedding affordable.
- Want lightweight, soft, and cool – SOL has a very light soft feel, which is great for those who are looking to sleep cool, particularly in warmer weather.
Who May Not Like SOL Organics…
- Want basement prices – for organic quality bedding, SOL is a deal, but it is still at a price point where potential customers are making an investment in their sleep environment.
- Prefer percale – SOL sheets are a sateen weave, which is silkier, giving them a slightly different feel than percale, which is crispier.
I reviewed the Pleat Organic cotton sheet set, which includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases. SOL also offers a Plain set and a Hem set, all similarly priced and made of the same materials.

Sheet Construction and Feel
SOL Organics is made with ultra-soft long-staple cotton (which is 100% certified organic). It has a 300 thread count and 60s yarn count; the fabric is a single thread sateen weave.
This gives SOL a relatively silky feel, though I found them to be less silky than average for a sateen weave.
The sheets are also relatively thin and light, and breathable – which felt great since I was trying them out during the muggy NYC summer. Still, after several washes, they remain in perfect condition and appear very durable.
What does organic mean for sheets?
The exact definition of organic bedding is difficult to pin down, but SOL goes above and beyond to deliver an eco-friendly product. The make distinctions in terms of the seed, soil, water, fertilizers, weed control, harvesting, and even labor used to grow the cotton used in their sheets.
They are also focused on fair trade, and are certified to adhere to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
Other things to note
- SOL stands for Sustained Organic Living
- Sheet sets start at $130
- SOL also offers duvet covers, shams, eye pillows, wraps, candles, and a fan diffuser
Overall I had a great experience with SOL sheets. I really like a lightweight sheet, so these were a great feel for me – plus, organic bedding at this price is definitely great value. Those who like a light sheet and value organic bedding, I think SOL sheets are a great option.
