Sheets play an important role in the sleep experience. Comfortable sheets can help with a great night’s sleep, and lead you to waking up feeling well rested and refreshed. Uncomfortable sheets can bunch up at night, slip off the mattress, or feel itchy against skin. Microfiber sheets are a great sheet option for sleepers looking for a budget friendly option without sacrificing on quality or comfort.
Microfiber is known for its durability, ease of washing, and its smooth feel that some find more comfortable than silk. This guide highlights Tuck’s top five picks for the best microfiber sheets. We’ll also go into detail of how microfiber is constructed, the pros and cons of the fabric, and what to look for before buying microfiber sheets to ensure you’re getting the sheets that suit you best.
Our top five choices are based on verified customer reviews, product research, our in-house testing team, and sleep experts.
The Tuck editor’s pick for microfiber sheets goes to Brooklyn Bedding’s Brushed Microfiber sheets. These sheets are 100% polyester, making them durable for regular use and washing. They’re wrinkle, shrink, and stain resistant. Brooklyn Bedding has woven these sheets with fine fibers that measure less than one denier. This produces a luxurious softness from the brushed fabric. This fabric also makes the sheets stain resistant and moisture-wicking, good for those who sleep hot or live in warm climates.
A combination of traditional microfiber luster and softness, the sheet set comes with two pillowcases (one for twin and twin xl sets), one flat sheet, and one fitted sheet. Along with the standard sizes, Brooklyn Bedding sells these sheets in twin xl, full xl, and split king options, making these a good choice if you have a less common mattress size.
Brooklyn Bedding’s Brushed Microfiber sheets come in six colors with a 30-day return period.
Tuck’s choice for the best value microfiber sheets goes to the Mellanni Bed Sheet Set. These high-quality sheets come in at under $25 for the queen set, significantly lower than competitors offering similar quality. The sheets are 100 percent polyester microfiber brushed to feel extra soft on the skin.
The Mellanni sheets are hypoallergenic and a good choice for sleepers with allergies or sensitive skin. The brushed microfiber fabric used for these sheets resists allergens, dust mites, and moisture. The fitted sheet in this set has elastic around the entire edge which makes for a secure fit and no slipping off in the middle of the night. The fitted sheet will work with mattresses up to 16 inches tall.
In addition to the Mellanni Bed Sheet Set’s attractive price and comfort, it comes with a lifetime warranty, which is uncommon in the sheet industry – especially for the price-point.
Tuck’s top pick for sheets featuring a deep pocket is Southshore Fine Linens Extra Deep Pocket Sheet Set. These sheets fit beds up to 21 inches in height. These sheets are designed specifically to fit deep mattresses and have elastic around the entire fitted sheet, ensuring they’ll stay in place through the night.
Southshore Fine Linens Sheets are made from double brushed microfiber and feel soft and comfortable against the skin. These microfiber sheets measure 110 GSM (grams per square meter). This indicates a tight and durable weave, making these sheets long lasting.
The twin set comes with one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases. The full, queen, king, and California king sizes come with one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and four pillowcases. All pillowcases feature a European envelope closure so they pillow won’t slip out of the pillowcase.

Customers report that they find these sheets to be softer than silk thanks to the double brushed microfiber material. The Cosy House sheets are simple to launder in the washing machine and dryer and are wrinkle, stain, and shrink resistant.
The tight weave ensures durability through regular use and washing, but the fabric remains breathable.

Microfiber sheets are an attractive option to sleepers who are looking for durability and cost efficient sheets. These sheets come in a variety of weaves, colors, sizes, and textures. This guide will explain what microfiber is and then explore the pros and cons of the fabric. We’ll highlight how to care for them to ensure a long lifespan, and add a few extra tips to help you shop for microfiber sheets.
Microfiber is a synthetic material that is comprised of thin fibers woven into a fabric. It’s exceptionally lightweight and soft, often appearing with a slight shine similar to silk. Many sleepers find microfiber to be as soft as silk, but easier to care for and more affordable.
Microfiber’s thin fibers make for a tightly woven sheet. This ensures no allergens or dust mites become trapped in the fabric. This also makes for a moisture-wicking material which is ideal for those who sleep hot.
This material is easy to wash and doesn’t require special attention. The fabric is more resistant to stains than cotton or other natural materials. It’s also less prone to wrinkling or slowly deteriorating with frequent washing.
This lightweight material drapes well and usually has a slight sheen. Often woven into percale or sateen weave, these soft and smooth sheets offer a durable sheet at a budget friendly price.
The smooth and soft feel of microfiber comes from its thin fibers that are woven together tightly. This tight weave makes microfiber well-known for its durability. Breakdown or tearing is unlikely to occur with repeated use or washing. It also won’t shrink or fade in color with frequent laundering. The material does well with resisting stains, and microfiber sheets aren’t likely to hold stains after laundering if one does show up.
Microfiber wicks moisture away, keeping sleepers cool at night. The weave of these sheets helps with thermoregulation, ensuring sleepers stay cool on hot nights but warm enough when the temperature drops.
Sheets should be washed every one to two weeks. Microfiber has the potential to be very durable and hold up well through years of use and washing as long as they’re cared for properly. Always consult the individual sheets’ care instructions to ensure the best lifespan for microfiber sheets.
In general, microfiber sheets do best when washing in cool to warm water.
The material is lightweight and usually thin so it dries quickly. A dryer on a low setting is safe for the sheets, as is line drying. These sheets are wrinkle-resistant so unlike some other materials, taking them out of the dryer immediately isn’t as time sensitive.
