When it comes to twin fitted sheet , cotton has long been the go-to fabric. But if you’re looking for a sheet that’s more soft, breathable and comfortable, we recommend switching to something made with lyocell or viscose.
Bamboo rayon (also called bamboo-derived viscose) is also a popular choice. It’s soft, breathable and wicks moisture, keeping you cool and dry throughout the night.
Choosing the Right Fitted Sheet
The best fitted sheets fit your mattress perfectly. That means they don’t fall down, snag on furniture or get tangled around the edges of the box spring. To make sure you’re getting the perfect size, take measurements of your mattress and write them down.
