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 great, but they are not for every sleeper (read how they are unique HERE). Read my full SOL Organics Sheets Review for details.
I reviewed the Pleat Organic cotton sheet set, which includes 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, and 2 pillow cases. SOL also offers a Plain set and a Hem set, all similarly priced and made of the same materials.
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.
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)
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. If you like a light sheet and value organic bedding, I think SOL sheets is a great option.
