Brooklinen vs. Boll & Branch Overview
Brooklinen got its start in 2014, when Brooklyn couple Rich and Vicki Fulop launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their dream company. Driven by the desire to make comfortable, affordable sheets made from all-natural materials, Brooklinen’s founders keep costs low by cutting out the middleman and selling their products exclusively online. Brooklinen’s 270-thread count Classic Core sheet set is made from 100 percent long-staple cotton.
Founded by Scott and Missy Tannen in 2013, Boll & Branch strives to provide ethically produced, environmentally sound textile products at an affordable price. Boll & Branch exclusively uses 100 percent organic cotton, prioritizing workers’ rights and sustainable practices. All textiles are made with raw, non-GMO materials and shipped in 100 percent recycled packaging. Boll & Branch’s flagship Percale sheet set offers a crisp, tailored sleep experience in multiple colors and patterns.
- Please note: Both Brooklinen and Boll & Branch sell models additional to the items listed above.
Brooklinen also offers a Luxe Collection, which features sheets and sheet sets made from 100 percent long-staple cotton in a sateen weave, as well as a linen collection made from 100 percent flax linen.
Boll & Branch also sells a 100 percent linen collection, as well as a flannel collection made from organic cotton.
Brooklinen and Boll & Branch offer lightweight, durable sheets that are consistently highly rated for their exceptional comfort. Deeply committed to sustainability and ethical consumption, both companies use top-quality materials to make environmentally friendly products. However, each brand features its own unique qualities and benefits. Let’s look at how our testing team rated both types of sheets on cost, comfort, durability, and other vital fields, along with each company’s shipping, warranties, and return policies.

How Are Brooklinen Sheets Made?
Made from 100% long-staple cotton, Brooklinen’s Classic Core sheets feature a 270-thread count percale weave. The all-natural breathable material is durable and cooling, making it ideal for customers who tend to sleep hot. While the company’s popular Luxe Sateen line is also made from long-staple cotton, these sheets feature a luxurious 480-thread count and sateen weave that gives them an elegant sheen. Both collections are available in more than 15 colors and patterns.
Brooklinen’s lightweight washed linen line is made from Belgian and French flax and dyed in small batches, giving each piece a unique flair. These ultra-soft sheets are made in Portugal and come in 10 different colors. Like the Classic Collection and the Luxe Sateen line, Brooklinen’s washed linen products are OEKO-TEX certified against harmful substances and meet strict global safety standards.
How Are Boll & Branch Sheets Made?
Boll & Branch’s Signature Soft and Percale lines are both made from 100 percent organic long-staple Fair Trade Certified cotton. However, the best-selling Signature line features a sateen weave, which leaves the sheets feeling extra soft and giving them a sheen. Customers can choose their Signature sheets in more than 12 colors and two styles. The Percale collection offers a smooth, crisp sleeping experience available in two styles and six stripes. Both lines are available in sets.
In addition, Boll & Branch offers a 100 percent woven linen option in a shore stripe pattern and a flannel set. Available in five colors and patterns, the flannel line is also made from 100 percent organic cotton.
Cleaning and Care for Brooklinen Sheets
With the right kind of care, Brooklinen sheets will get softer with every wash. The company suggests that customers machine wash sheets on a warm or cool setting. While customers are encouraged to line dry their sheets for best results, those who prefer to machine dry should do so on a low heat, low tumble setting.
Brooklinen also partners with a detergent brand called Laundress. Plant-based, gentle, and biodegradable, the line provides Brooklinen products with optimal care. Customers can purchase Laundress detergent, bleach alternative, fabric refresher spray, and wool and cashmere shampoo. A product bundle containing detergent, fabric conditioner, fabric spray, and bleach alternative is also available.
Cleaning and Care for Boll & Branch Sheets
Boll & Branch sheets are easy to clean and feature simple care instructions, although laundering directions differ for cotton and linen items. Their white or light-colored Percale, Signature Soft, and Flannel sheets should be machine washed in warm water, while cold water is ideal for all other colors. These sheets can be dried on a medium setting and ironed as needed. Cotton items may develop a slight sheen after ironing.
The company’s 100 percent woven linen sheets may also be ironed after washing and drying. Linen should be laundered in cold water with similar colors and tumble-dried on low heat. Customers should remove their linen sheets from the dryer immediately after the cycle has completed.
