Brooklinen Review | True Sheet Disruptors 1

Editor’s Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you make a purchase using these links. For full details visit the disclosures page.

I was given a free set of Brooklinen sheets to review. Brooklinen is the newest disruptor for bed linens. Typically you end up paying to much for quality linens or are forced to settle with cheap linens from Target or Walmart that hold up OK but don’t have the quality feel. Recently I conducted a Parachute Sheets review. They are great sheets but the Brooklinen review will prove these are really something special.

Ordering sheets is super easy and you aren’t overwhelmed with choices. The carefully curate beautiful patterns or you can go with solid colors. Shipments arrive promptly and the packaging is outstanding. Check out the neat little handle for the box.

As you unbox the package you will find a nice Thank You note as well as a trendy cloth tote bag that you can reuse.

Brooklinen review

 

On to the sheets themselves…

I ordered a “Luxe Hardcore Bundle” of the white sateen sheets for $249.75, here’s what that bought me:

1 King size fitted sheet
1 King size flat sheet
1 King size duvet cover
2 Standard size pillow cases
2 King size pillow cases

Here’s the screen shot from Brooklinen

As a comparison it would cost me $429 to get all this from Parachute. Here’s a screenshot of my shopping bag from Parachute.

Parachute Price

 

I received a set of percale sheets from Parachute and those are also phenomenal sheets but they are still a bit out of my price range. I just came across Brooklinen through an article I read online about bedding industry disruptors and reached out to them.

The sateen sheets are very smooth and on par with my Frette sheets. Granted, the Frette sheets have exquisite stitching and colors and patters that scream luxury but you certainly pay a premium for that.

These sheets are 480 thread count, long staple cotton. Some people may be shocked to hear of quality sheets being only 480 thread count but thread count really has nothing to do with quality. A better indicator is that they have long staple cotton. That means that the threads can be weaved longer which means less lint in your washing machine and more durability for your sheets.

After just one wash, my sheets were soft and smooth yet still crispy giving me that luxury hotel bed feel. I can’t believe that for under $200 I was able to transform the whole look of my bedroom. Not only are you buying comfort, you’re also buying a mini bedroom upgrade.

Before you go out to the department stores to buy your next set of sheets, check out what Brooklinen has to offer first and then see if they can be beat in terms of price and quality. Chances are you’ll be coming back to them.

              1. Price differences aside, which of the two (Parachute or Brooklinen) is the more comfortable set of sheets? If you were in need of a good night’s sleep and there were two identical beds, one with a Parachute set of sheet and the other Brooklinen, which one would you choose? I’ve been looking at both for awhile now and can’t decide which way to go.

                1. In my opinion they are both equal in comfort. Brooklinen has the advantage because it is much less expensive so therefore I would choose Brooklinen.

              2. Hi,

                Would you recommend this over the company stores’ Comfort Wash Solid Linen Bedding?

                Thanks Bruv!

                1. I have never tried the Company Store linens so don’t have any context. I will have to add them to my list for review.

              3. I put the Brooklinen sheets on my 10 inch mattress and while they weren’t super tight, they didn’t look messy either. I like the fitted sheets because they are just easier to put on. It comes down to how neat you like your bed.

              4. How do the Brooklinen sheets compare to the Boll & Branch sheets? Price aside, would you recommend one over the other?
                Thanks

                1. They feel just about the same. So it really comes down to whether or not you have a preference for organic and what styles you like.

              5. Not happy with sheets. Thought they would be softer. unable to find a phone number to contact them … anywhere

                1. I don’t know when they will be back in stock. The company is growing so fast it seems like they are having a hard time keeping up with demand. This is also the case with Boll & Branch. However, they are worth the wait!

              6. I posted this comment on the Boll and Branch review page:

                We have a set of the luxe sheets from Brooklinen as well as a set of sheets from Boll and Branch. Both are sateen weave. To me the Brooklinen sheets feel softer and a bit more substantial. However, we have only washed both sets a couple of times so far and they will probably both improve. The difference may be up to the thread count as Brooklinen is 480 and Boll and Branch is 300.

                Please don’t misinterpret — the Boll and Branch sheets are excellent and are organic and free trade. However, based on material and our preference we would probably buy the Brooklinen luxe set again even though they don’t sell split king sets like Boll and Branch and it cost us more to buy from Brooklinen. If you prefer lighter sheets you may prefer Boll and Branch.

                I don’t typically leave reviews, but Brooklinen’s sheets are so wonderful I felt the need to tell everyone. I have had the Luxe sheet set for almost a year and recently upgraded to a Brooklinen comforter too. The ties in the corners of the duvet cover make making the bed super easy.

                The whole set makes my college dorm room bed feel like it was plucked out of a luxury hotel room. I recommend them to anyone and everyone!

                I have to be honest — I am pretty shocked by the positive reviews of Brooklinen sheets. I ordered a set back when they were on kickstarter and haven’t been impressed. They are just uncomfortable, plain and simple. The best analogy I can come up with is that they feel as though you’re lying on nylon, which leads to an uncomfortable ‘static-y’ type of feeling. I recommend that people in the market for sheets save their money and not get swayed by the hip, direct-to-consumer marketing here – in the end the product falls far short of expectations.

                1. It depends on what kind of feel you’re after. The Snowe sheets have a crisper feel to them, think of a very crisp hotel sheet. The Brooklinen are a bit softer but still have a nice smooth feel.

                I am now on year 2 of using Brooklinen ,save a few months. I love them. I have 3 king sheet sets and mix and match of duvets and pillow cases (different colors etc…) I have received some great sheets from family and gifts through the year including fret. Some have felt better and seemed to be of great quality, but also cost 4 to 5x as much. The white sheets get really dirty with my dogs and always come clean. Love them. They feel nice and cool on my foam mattress. The only sheets I put above them when you factor in style, quality and price are the linen sheets from Parachute. More expensive, but I LOVE linen sheets, just not the prices.

                I do have a complaint thought. I have the Navy sheet set and unlike both sets of my white sheets, the blue seem to stretch after 3 or 4 days of use. I hate loose sheets!

              10. I realize this is somewhat of an old thread, but I am wondering if there is a recommendation for those of us north of the border? I am really interested in Brooklinen sheets, and especially like the styles that are available. But once conversion and shipping is factored in we are looking at over $300 for a set of sheets. Any help would be greatly appreciated

                Has anyone tried Westin hotel sheets they are amazing!! I bought sol sheets and find them short weave almost prickly. I never read reviews for Westins bedding which I would love to know how they compare to parachute and Brooklinen

              12. I fell for this company’s marketing strategy… Basically, advertisements that are crafted to look like real articles which “review” the sheets. Don’t waste your money. The sheets are not nearly as good as what you can get for even less money at a department store or online. Plus, they charge for shipping, which takes a week, they charge a return “service fee,” and they charge you for the return shipping. This is a scam. And they can keep the stupid bag and fancy box they ship in. Very angry ex-customer.

                I bought my sheets from Thomas Lee and I dearly love them. I didn’t see a review for them, so I wanted you to know of another online retailer….

              14. I’m currently trying to decide between Brooklinen or parachute for sheets to go on my Brentwood oceano mattress. With the mattress being 15″, would the 15″Brooklinen sheets fit without coming off or will I need to go for the larger 16″ parachute sheets.

              15. Ben, where do you live? Do you need to run AC in the summer? I’m leaning towards percale sheets where I am in California – breathability is key.

                Which set would you recommend?

                1. I live in Minneapolis and yes it gets hot and humid here in the summer so definitely run AC. I would go with the percale as that will be more breathable than a sateen.

              16. We live in Florida in the winter and New York in the summer. I am 61 and grew up with percale sheets. They are light, cool, and smooth — great for Florida. So we love the Brooklinen basic percale. I am not such a fan of the smooth sateens — although soft, they are definitely heavier and do not breathe as well. Most “youngsters” have not slept under percale sheets, but I promise you will love them. And the older I get the more I appreciate lightweight bedding!
