Brooklinen Sheets Reviews

Read our review of the different Brooklinen sheet collections and discover which one is best for you.

By Loren Bullock

Brooklinen is a brand known for their quality bedding. If you are looking for sheets, they offer sets from three different collections: Classic Percale, Luxe Sateen, and Soft Linen. Some sets come with duvet covers, others come with a fitted and top sheet. For the purpose of this review, we will be looking at the core sheet sets, which come with a fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillow cases.

Brooklinen Classic Percale Collection (Classic Core Sheet Set)

Available in more than 15 colors, the Classic Percale Collection is described as crisp and cool. This set of Brooklinen sheets is designed with hot sleepers in mind.

What are They Made Of?

The Classic Core sheet set is made of 100% long staple cotton with a percale weave. This loose weave is 270 thread count, making them extremely breathable. The matte finish this fabric has gives the set a hotel-like quality, so you’ll swear you’re on vacation every night.

Special Features

The Classic Core Set comes with one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. Check out these qualities that give this sheet set an edge over other bedding brands.

Specified Labels: The fitted sheets in every set come with long and short labels. That’s right, no more turning the sheets over, trying to determine which side is which. These handy labels help you get it right the first time around.

OEKO-TEX Certified: These sheets have undergone testing and received the OEKO-TEX certification, meaning they meet standard 100 of the global safety criteria—no harmful chemicals or substances. You don’t have to worry about the materials in the sheets.

Cool and Breathable: Percale weave is the one most commonly used in cooling sheets because they allow for more airflow than other weaves. That, paired with the cool crispness lets your body heat escape rather than stay trapped, keeps you cool.

Pros and Cons

If you’d like to weigh your options on the Classic Percale Set, we’ve provided a pro/con chart for simple reflection:

Pros Cons
Good for Hot Sleepers: The percale weave is breathable and perfect for a cool nights sleep. Bad for Light Sleepers: Because of the crispness of the sheets, they make a sound similar to tissue paper ruffling. This can be quite aggravating to a light sleeper.
Machine Washable: Unlike other high-quality sheets, these are washing-machine compatible. Brooklinen has an entire cleaning and care page with specific instructions on their website. Out of US Return Fee: While Brooklinen ships to sleepers outside of the US, the free shipping and exchanges only applies to the continental US.
Hotel Bed Feel: Sinking into these crisp sheets give you the illusion of hotel quality bedding in your own home. Not Wrinkle-Free: Brooklinen doesn’t use any wrinkle-free products in their sheets. Because this product is cotton, it will naturally wrinkle.

Brooklinen Luxe Sateen Collection (Luxe Core Set)

The Luxe Sateen Collection is Brooklinen’s best seller. These are described as “buttery smooth cotton sheets” and are extremely similar to the Classic Set.

What are They Made Of?

Just like the Classic Collection, the Luxe Sateen sheet set is made of 100% long staple cotton. The only difference is that the Luxe is 480 thread count with a sateen weave rather than a percale weave. This weave is 80 yarn count. Combined, the sheets are left with a slightly shiny, luminous finish.

Special Features

The factors that make the Luxe Collection stand out slightly differ from those of the Classic Set.

Silky-Smooth: Be careful with these! You might not want to get out of bed in the morning. The sateen weave allows you to truly melt into the sheets.

Envelop Pillowcases: Brooklinen uses pillow enclosures in their pillowcases to keep slipping, sliding, and spillage to an absolute minimum.

OEKO-TEX Certified: These sheets have undergone testing as well and are certified to have no harmful chemicals or substances. They meet standard 100 of the global safety criteria, so you don’t have to worry about the materials in the sheets.

Sizes and Prices

Sheet Size Flat Sheet Fitted Sheet Pillowcase Price

Twin XL 71″ x 104″ 39″ x 80″ x 15″ 20″ x 27″ $129
Full 86″ x 98″ 54″ x 75″ x 15″ 20″ x 27″ $149

Cal King 110″ x 104″ 76″ x 84″ x 15″ 20″ x 37″ $169

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons
Smooth and Cuddly: The Luxe set is heavier than the Classic and keeps you warmer at night. These sheets are comparable to a warm hug. Takes a Few Washes to Get Quality: When you receive your Luxe sheets, they are not as soft as they can be. It takes a few washes to get there, which could mean a few weeks.
Machine Washable: Like the Classic, these sheets are machine washable. Not Wrinkle-Free: Nope! The Brooklinen Luxe sheets aren’t wrinkle-free either.
Color Choices: Luxe offers 15 different colors, so you get customizable comfort with purchase. Out of US Return Fee: While Brooklinen ships to sleepers outside of the US, the free shipping and exchanges only applies to the continental US—same as with the Classic.

Brooklinen Linen Collection (Linen Core Set)

Linen sheets are the cornerstone of bedding opulence, and Brooklinen contributed to this reputation with their Linen Core Sheet Set.

What are They Made Of?

The Linen Collection is made of 100% Beligan and French flax linen and manufactured in Portugal where these materials are more easily accessible.

Special Features

Pre-Washed: Top quality linen sheets typically come pre-washed. The first wash sets the fabric and prolongs its life.

Stone Washed: Another sign of quality is stone washing. Stone washing gives your linen sheets more softness than they would otherwise have and also provides linen with its worn look. Plus, since these sheets are already washed with stones, there’s no way your washing machine can harm them.

OEKO-TEX Certified: Yep, you guessed it. These sheets have undergone testing and are certified to have no harmful chemicals or substances. They meet standard 100 of the global safety criteria, so you don’t have to worry about the materials in the sheets. Getting deja vu?

Sizes and Prices

Sheet Size Flat Sheet Fitted Sheet Pillowcase Price
Full 86″ x 98″ 54″ x 75″ x 15″ 20″ x 27″ $249
Queen 92″ x 104″ 60″ x 80″ x 15″ 20″ x 27″ $249
King 110″ x 104″ 76″ x 80″ x 15″ 20″ x 37″ $269
Cal King 110″ x 104″ 76″ x 84″ x 15″ 20″ x 37″ $269

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons
Light and Airy: Not only are these sheets soft and comfortable, but they are lightweight. If you aren’t into heavy sheets, these are for you. Most Expensive Set: The linen set is by far the most expensive of the three. Not recommended if you’re shopping on a budget.
Machine Washable: Not to beat a dead horse, but you really can wash and dry these quality sheets in your own home. Seriously. No Twin Sizes: If you sleep on a twin bed, you are out of luck if linen is your cup of tea. The Linen Core set only has sheet sizes full and up.
Warmth: Linen is a great insulator, but is naturally moisture-wicking which could absorb any night sweats produced. Dryer Shedding: Multiple people report masses of lint coming off of these sheets after a roll in the dryer. Don’t forget to change that lint screen!
