As a shopping editor who values sleep above all else, I have been gifted a lot of luxury sheet sets over the years. In fact, at any given moment, there are five sets in my closet—all of which I am grateful to have and use. That said, as much as I appreciate a gift in the bedding department, some sheets are so incredible that I am more than willing to buy them myself. Case in point: Boll & Branch’s Signature Hemmed sheet set, which includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. You may be wondering why I felt the need to buy a set of sheets when I already have so many. The answer: I succumbed to the hype.

If you have social media, chances are you’ve seen the conversation circulating around the Boll & Branch sheets. They’re highly luxe and sustainable, which was the lethal combo that made me give in and buy them. Full disclosure: I got them at a sample sale in 2022, so I didn’t pay the $279-plus they’re selling for today. After sleeping on them for two-plus years though, would I now pay the full price? Keep reading for my honest answer.

Here’s the thing: I am one of those people who needs a full eight hours of sleep per night if I don’t want to wake up an irritable monster the next day. I also spend a lot of my downtime in bed watching movies, reading books, and responding to late-night emails, so making sure my bed is cozy and comfortable is really important to me. Of course, there are plenty of cheaper bedding options that sell super-soft sheets, but I wanted to treat myself to a set of the famed Boll & Branch ones, and I have no regrets.

What Makes Boll & Branch Sustainable?

Since its inception on the bedding scene a decade ago, sustainability has been at the root of every product, from the organic cotton sheets to the plush pillows. How, though, do we know that the brand is so eco-conscious? For starters, it's not trying to hide its production or sourcing processes. In fact, one of its core value is centered around its 100 percent traceability, from farm to finish, meaning you can actually track how, when, and where your specific item was made. It's also kind of fun, if you have a few minutes to spare.

The system is called Origin Track, and it is an industry-first, so get ready to feel extra-special when you tuck yourself in at night. Every Boll & Branch product features a lot number, which is linked to a specialized system that traces every step of the item's creation. Just type the lot number into the Origin Track page, and enjoy what you'll find: a journey that details everything from the farmers who grew the organic cotton to the artisans behind the final cut and sew process.

Why Are Boll & Branch Sheets So Good?

As much as I love high-quality sheets, I refuse to take care of them for the sake of aesthetics. In other words, I am not ironing or steaming my sheets after I wash them, but I still want them to look good on my bed. These require no extra TLC to stay stylish. I can take them out of the dryer, fold them when they’re still warm, pop them on my shelf for a month while I sleep on another set I enjoy, and put them back on my bed without a single crease. I don’t know how, but I don’t question the magic.

Secondly, I like the look and fill of thick hotel-like sheets, so you’ll never see silk on my bed. All of Boll & Branch’s sheets are made of long-staple, 100 percent organic cotton that’s manufactured and woven sans harmful pesticides, GMOs, or toxins like formaldehyde. The attention to detail definitely shows. These are somehow both very soft and crisp, which is my perfect combination when it comes to bedding.

Boll & Branch Sheets' Pros and Cons

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: No product is perfect. As much as I love my Boll & Branch sheets, I will be the first to admit that they’re not perfect, but to me, the pros outweigh the cons, so I’d buy another set if needed.


  • Available in 14 colors and eight sizes, from twin XL to split king

  • Made without toxins and harmful chemicals

  • Composed of 100 percent organic cotton

  • Come in a set with the option for a flat sheet


  • Can be on the pricier side compared to some sheets (queen size is $279)

  • Color options are all neutral

Do They Hold Up Over Time?

I have had these sheets for a little over two years, and the quality has definitely held up. In fact, they have probably gotten softer. There have been no tears or seam-splitting, which is really saying something, considering how many times these have gone through the wash. The only potential issue is the wrinkling, which doesn’t bother me, but if you like your sheets silky-smooth, you may have to iron or steam them before putting them on your bed. Earlier I mentioned that they do not crease, and that is true, so feel free to leave them folded in the closet for as long as you need, but after you sleep on them for a few days, you will definitely start to notice some wrinkles.

Are There Any Downsides?

In my opinion, the only real downside is the price. If you’re looking to decorate on a budget, it can be hard to justify spending nearly $279 on a set of sheets, but if you want to make a case for them, think of it like this: If you bite the bullet and buy one set, you won’t have to buy any additional sets for at least a few years. So you can spend the money now and save later, which is always a good idea in our book. It’s kind of like fast fashion: You can invest in one expensive sweater that you’ll have for years, or repeat-buy a cheap one that falls apart every few months. The first option will actually save you money. Plus, since HB readers get 20 percent off with the code HOUSEBEAUTIFUL, there's no better time to buy the sheets than right now.

Final Verdict: Are Boll & Branch Sheets Worth It?

To me, yes, they are worth it. If you, like me, enjoy crisp sheets that won’t irritate your skin or damage the environment, you’ll think they’re worth it, too. Unlike some other cotton sheets, these won’t shrink or turn yellowish after a few months (or years) of use. They may be a bit on the expensive side, but if you’re a believer in the phrase “you get what you pay for,” you can rest assured that these live up to the price tag. Plus, if you end up loving the sheets, you can snag the Boll & Branch pajamas, which are made of the same exact material.
