Brooklinen is one of the youngest and most successful online bedding companies. Luxe Core Sheet set is a luxurious sateen option that’s available very low prices. Let’s see how much quality there really is for the average of $150 per set.

Pros and cons

ProsCons
– Super comfy and soft
– Affordable price for superior quality
– Variety of colors and patterns
– Sheets labeled at long and short sides
– No physical stores means you can’t touch and feel the fabric for yourself before purchase
– Not all patterns are available in all sizes

Luxe Core Sheets are made to be more durable and silkier to the touch than the regular Core line from Brooklinen. 

The production quality is superior and we can’t complain about that. We love that the sheet sides are labeled “long” and “short”. This can be useful, especially if putting sheets on annoys you or if you want to get it done quickly. You can pick one of 9 or more colors, which is a normal number of options for the industry.

Even though Brooklinen makes high-quality products that most people love, we think it’s easier to choose your preferred linen when you have the chance to touch it yourself and compare the feel to other similar products. Online shopping only doesn’t give you this option. The good news is that Brooklinen said they are working on an option to send people swatches or samples.

Another thing we dislike is that we couldn’t find a certain color in a certain size. We then clicked on all color options, as saw that there are only three sizes available in some colors, only one in another, so you don’t really have the option to choose much. All sizes do come in white.

Material

Brooklinen uses 100% fine long-thread cotton. Long-staple cotton gives a weave which is more durable and that means your sheets shouldn’t fray or pill. High thread count and fine threads offer the silky touch of sateen. 

Pure cotton bedding is definitely the way to go. It’s hypoallergenic, better for your skin, and more breathable than non-natural materials. The high thread count does make these less breathable, but it doesn’t mean Luxe Core will make you hot. The sateen feels crisp and cool – some of the reviewers from Brooklinen.com even said they’re the coolest sheets they had ever tried.

Their silkiness also makes blankets easy to slip off the bed. If that’s something you personally don’t like, these may not be for you.

Brooklinen recommends washing the sheets on a cool or warm cycle and line drying to ensure that the products will last long. If you do have to use a dryer, put it on low heat and low tumble cycle.

We’re not too excited about this since higher temperatures are necessary to kill off the bacteria from sheets (or any piece of clothing).
