We purchased the Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets so our writer could put it to the test. Keep reading for our full product review.

I’ve always been a hot sleeper—and not just toasty here and there. I’m talking really warm. Thick flannel sheets are truly my worst nightmare when it comes to bedtime, but the Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets—basically the opposite of thick, hot sheets—are a dream come true.

The Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets appealed to me on so many levels. For one, they’re lightweight and breathable. I actually did a double-take after touching these sheets for the first time. I couldn’t believe they were as soft—perhaps softer—than advertised. And they’re truly lightweight. I can actually sleep under the top sheet without feeling smothered or overheated.

The brand’s eucalyptus requires 10 times less water than cotton.

This likely has to do with Buffy’s unique materials. Instead of the typical cotton, these sheets are made with cool-to-the-touch eucalyptus fabric. I’ve seen this type of bedding advertised, but always figured it was just marketing speak; how could fabric make that much of a difference? After weeks of sleeping on this soft and cozy bedding set, it's definitely one of the best bedding sets of 2021, and I can attest eucalyptus makes a world of difference! These are by far the softest sheets I’ve ever felt. Even better? They get softer after every wash. This fact alone had me hooked!

But Buffy’s eucalyptus sheets appeal to me in another way, too: they’re eco-friendly. The brand’s eucalyptus requires 10 times less water than cotton. Plus, they only use natural ingredients such as gardenia and pomegranate to dye the fabric. This means their color selection is minimal, but hey, I’ll take it for that kind of safe and natural dye! Buffy also offsets CO2 emissions from shipments, whether it’s from the factory to the distribution center or the center to the consumer’s doorstep. This may not affect the bedding itself, but you better believe buying sustainably helps me sleep better at night!

I couldn’t believe they were as soft—perhaps softer—than advertised.

These sheets also have one of my favorite bedding features ever: They label which side should go where, so I’m not fumbling and guessing as I make my bed. Yes, this is a small thing, but Buffy seems to make these small details a priority—and I think that’s why I ultimately love these new sheets oh so much!

Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes are available?

Buffy’s eucalyptus sheets run the gamut when it comes to size; they have twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king.

What materials does Buffy use?

Buffy’s secret to super-soft bedding? Eucalyptus! The brand uses 100 percent eucalyptus fiber, which contains no essential oils. That means these sheets are incredibly soft—the softest I’ve ever felt!—and they are safe for pets and children. These materials are also naturally resistant to dust, mites, and mold.

What are the color options?

The only negative I could find with the Buffy eucalyptus sheets was that the color selection is limited. Colors include white, blush, light grey, dark grey, light blue, and dark blue. (The reason for the limited color selection? Natural dyes! Buffy uses ingredients like pomegranate and gardenia to naturally dye the fabric.)

How do you clean these sheets?

These sheets are machine washable. Buffy recommends using machine wash cold, with tumble dry on low. The brand also recommends keeping these sheets out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.

What is the thread count?

The thread count for these sheets is 300 single-ply.

What is included in a set?

Each set comes with two pillowcases, one top sheet, and one fitted sheet. The fitted sheet has a woven-in tag to tell you which side goes where.  

Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets vs. Eucalypso Home Eucalyptus Classic Sheet Set

Buffy may have made a name for itself in the eucalyptus-sheet category, but it’s hardly the only brand offering this exciting new kind of bedding. One alternative, Eucalypso Home, offers its own eucalyptus classic sheet set that runs for slightly less than the Buffy brand. (For a full bed, Buffy’s sheets are $199; Eucalypso Home’s run for $159). The color selection with Eucalypso Home’s bedding is pretty limited; they offer white, dark grey, light blue, and vanilla blush. The Eucalypso Home sheets are made with 100 percent TENCEL Lyocell fibers from eucalyptus; the brand’s proprietary DreamWeave technology produces impressively silky and cool sheets that are soft to the touch, safe for sensitive skin, and cool all night long. Eucalypso’s sheets, like Buffy, come with OEKO-TEX certification, which guarantees they’re free of harmful chemicals, and therefore safe for all kinds of sleepers. Plus, while Buffy has a 300 thread count, these sheets are a bit higher, with a luxurious 600 thread count.

For those looking to save a bit of money while still enhancing their sleep—and helping the environment through sustainable bedding purchases—Eucalypso Home may be the way to go.

Final Verdict

If you’re a hot sleeper, you need these sheets.

Bedding is tough for hot sleepers, but the Buffy Eucalyptus Sheets make cool sleep not just attainable but cozy. As a hot sleeper myself, you better believe these aren’t coming off my bed (until wash time—then they’ll go right back on again!).
