I have been sleeping on affordable Sol Organics bed sheets and wanted to share my thoughts about them.

 

Sol Organics bed sheets are made with organic cotton that is grown without synthetic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and which are irrigated with rainwater, not sewage water.

Unfortunately, according to the Pesticide Action Network (PANNA) conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other single crop. Nearly $2.6 billion worth of pesticides are sprayed on cotton fields each year — accounting for more than 10% of total pesticide use and nearly 25% of insecticide use worldwide.

 

Moreover, in 2015 the USDA approved genetically modified cotton that resists 2,4-D herbicide, which is linked to cancer, is toxic to fish, and pollutes our water supply.

The affordable SOL Organics bed sheets (as well as all their textile products) are certified to GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards). You can find their certificate here.

 

GOTS certifies that the entire supply chain (processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution) is environmentally and socially responsible. Among other things, all heavy metals, aromatic solvents, formaldehyde, GMOs, and nanoparticles are prohibited in the sourcing, manufacture, and distribution of GOTS-certified products.

 

In fact, Sol Organics bed sheets arrived packed in cotton bags that can be reused. You can see them in the picture.

The organic cotton is grown in Chetna Organic Farms, Central India. The affordable SOL Organics bed sheets are made in their Fair Trade-certified factory, which means that workers are treated with dignity and respect, and no child labor or forced labor is used.

 

The affordable SOL Organics bed sheets come in three light colors including white, blue, and cream, which are achieved with low impact dyes, meaning that they are free of azo compounds and require less water in their manufacture.

 

What I like about the SOL Organics Bed Sheets

 

I do not know about you, but I love duvets. There are of course lots of organic sheets; however, I had a hard time finding any affordable organic duvet covers. I had to buy a non-matching duvet by Coyuchi on a deep sale in their outlet store.

 

I was happy to learn that SOL Organics bedding bundles include a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and 2 pillowcases, as well as a matching duvet cover. For California King size, the bundle runs $259; whereas Coyuchi’s duvet alone can run for $398.

 

The affordable SOL Organics cotton is 300 thread count and of sateen weave. The sateen is soft and silky, not crisp.

 

The duvet comes with clips to hold your comforter in place. And the buttons on the duvet are made with coconut shells, the same buttons used on the Coyuchi duvet I have.

    We have a duvet cover and sheet sets from SOL, and we love them–great quality, softness, and price!

    Hi there, is there an expiration date on the 20% off discount? Thanks!!

      The sheets are GOTS certified, which means so chlorine bleaches are not allowed and oxygen bleaches are used instead. The sheets are not very white, more of a cream color. Let me know if this helps. ~Irina

    Hi Irina,

    Thank you for recommending Sol. I purchased some items from them and they are really nice. I was wondering what duvet inserts you like? I need a non-toxic duvet insert/comforter.

    Best,
    Lisa

      Thank you, Lisa, for letting me know. I took a note of your request. What type of material would you prefer for your comforter? ~Irina

    As long as it’s organic, not smelly, and completely non-toxic, it doesn’t matter! 🌈

    We’ve had these sheets for a few months. I am curious to see how they’ll hold up over a long period of time. They are soft and, being someone who sleeps very hot, they keep me much cooler than other sheets I’ve had. I didn’t realize that the king sheet set came with king sized pillow cases. I called right away and they were super quick and helpful in sending me out some standard pillow cases. The standard, ironically, are just a tad small for our pillows. That drives me a little nuts but really isn’t too big of a deal. Overall, I’m happy with this purchase.

      Hi, Natalia! Open each product page and there will be a close up picture. You will see the difference. Thank you for asking. ~Irina

        they all look about the same to me… except for the pillow case finishing.
        I guess my question was – is the fabric for all 3 the same, just the finishing/stitching is different?
