Since we moved into a new house and got a new bed, I decided to try out a new company for sheets. As much as I love my Brooklinen sheets (which I reviewed here), for the sake of research for this blog, I decided to try Casper Sheets. I purchased mine through their website but you can also buy them at Target.
Much like Brooklinen, Casper promises premium sheets at direct-to-consumer prices. Also like Brooklinen, Casper makes their sheets from long fiber cotton (though Casper's is from Supima cotton grown in California). But Casper uses 2-ply thread at a 400 thread count while Brooklinen uses a single ply thread at a 300 thread count. Brooklinen claims that single ply thread makes for a smoother, lighter and softer fabric. Also the Casper sheets are a Percale weave while the Lux core sheet set I bought from Brooklinen are a Sateen weave and thus has more of a sheen.
In terms of pricing, the Brooklinen ones are a tad more expensive ($149 for a Queen set compared to Casper's $140 for a Queen set).
So which one do I think is better? For me Brooklinen is the winner hands down. The Casper sheets are definitely less soft and more rough than the Brooklinen ones. My husband however likes the Casper ones because he runs cold and sometimes finds the cool crispness of the Brooklinen sheets too cold when first getting into bed. As for me, I love that feeling of cool sheets. Since I regret not getting a set of Brooklinens for the new bed, I think I'll be returning these (Casper has a 100 day return policy). Also I'm thinking of trying linen bed linens (lol linen linens) since a couple of you guys highly recommended it after I wrote up my slow fashion linen review.
What kind of sheets do you guys sleep on and recommend?
