Although the materials in the Wharf and Whitney Collections are made from different materials, they have received comparable ratings in several categories.
Both sets provide good temperature neutrality and sleep fairly cool, can be cleaned easily, and provide a silky-soft feel with minimal snagging (but some bunching).
The Whitney Collection (unlike the Wharf) is only available in sizes that accommodate larger mattresses, which can be limiting to some customers. The Whitney’s price-point is also exceptionally higher than the Wharf’s, suggesting the latter is a better-value pick.

How Do Eli & Elm Sheets Compare to Other Bedding Collections?
As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our bedding assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, feel, or price, we think it’s important to see how the Wharf and Whitney bedding collections stack up to other sheets.
The Wharf and Whitney collections both share the percale weave, which gives the materials a crisp, lightweight feel. The Wharf sheets and pillowcases are made of viscose from bamboo, a breathable and resilient fabric that is optimal for hot sleepers. The Whitney collection is crafted from a blend of long staple cotton, lyocell, and paraffin, which also provides great temperature neutrality.
