About Bed Threads
Bed Threads offers luxury bedding for an affordable price. Its 100% Flax linen sheets, duvets, and pillowcases are a natural way to add comfort, quality, and class to your bedroom.
Featured in Vogue Living, Broadsheet, Marie Claire, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Real Living, and many other well-known publications, the brand has created quite the uproar about its “heirloom-quality” sheets. You’ll find a bohemian aesthetic on the Bed Threads Instagram page, with a whopping 292k followers.
Can this company take your bedding from average to astounding? This Bed Threads review plans on finding out. We’ll cover the brand, its mission, products, customer ratings, and more, to help you determine if its items are worth the buy.
Overview of Bed Threads
Silk, cotton, polyester—there are several fabrics that bedding is made of. But, that doesn’t mean it should be. Bed Threads burst onto the scene in 2017 to give customers an alternative: 100% flax linen.
The brand’s founders, Genevieve and Alan Rosen chose this fabric for a few reasons. After searching for the perfect linen bedding and coming up short on options that were 100% linen, affordable, and included all of the bed pieces they needed, the husband and wife team decided to create their own.
Flax linen is affordable, comfortable, and can be used in hot and cold climates. The brand launched only offering a fitted sheet, a duvet, and two pillowcases. Within the first week of running the site, Bed Threads sold out completely. It seems there were a lot of people in search of the perfect bedding.
More recently, the brand has become OEKO-Tex certified, meaning their factories adhere to strict ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices, and are a carbon neutral brand, meaning they offset carbon emissions of production and shipping.
Aiming to do more for the world, the company donates $1 from every sale to i=Change, a platform that lets customers choose where their donation goes. The company is based in Australia but ships worldwide.
Before we dive headfirst into information on the brand’s bedding, this Bed Threads review will quickly fill you in on its pros and cons.

Bed Threads Linen Sheets Review
This Bed Threads review will feature the brand’s best-selling duvet cover in its most popular colors. Below you’ll find highly pigmented Rust, Sage, and Terracotta hues that come with a handy storage sack.
Each color is available in six different sizes, ranging from Twin to King. Depending on the size you order, your total will be $140-$230.
Bed Threads Rust 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover Review
Duvets have the magical ability to provide warmth in the winter and breathability in the summer. Whether you’re lounging in the AC air or curled up in front of your heater, the Rust 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover helps to regulate your temperature to ensure you stay comfortable and sweat-free.
In a bold, earthy color, this Rust duvet is rich and full of life. It’s been pre-washed, so as soon as you pull it out of the bag you can feel how soft it is. Offered in most traditional bed sizes, sleep more comfortably with this Bed Threads rust bedding.
Bed Threads Sage 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover Review
Linen is a fabric that creases easily, but according to some of the top names in fashion, it looks better that way. Creases bring about a relaxed, effortless vibe, and with linen, one that doesn’t look messy. Instead, it just looks like it’s been enjoyed and lived-in—something your bed should be.
The Bed Threads sage green duvet cover is a light, mossy, pale green that embodies a peaceful forest. Relaxing and neutral, Sage works well with pretty much any color you throw at it, but we like the idea of it paired with white to keep the zen-like mood at 100%. Create the ideal stress-free environment with the Bed Threads Sage Duvet Cover.
Bed Threads Terracotta 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover Review
Terracotta is traditionally a strong mix of red and brown. The Terracotta 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover is a washed-out version of clay, resulting in a tender, earthy, peach-like color that adds a hint of warmth to your bedroom.
We love this color paired with strong greens, so pile in the flowing, leafy plants to your boudoir for a bohemian jungle vibe. With a GSM (grams per square meter) count of 170, this linen is heavy but breathable for a satisfying sleep. You can rest easy with the Bed Threads terracotta duvet cover.
Bed Threads Linen Sheet Sets Review
Bedding sets are a convenient way to purchase all that you need to revamp the way your bed looks and feels. The products featured below in this Bed Threads review are some of the brand’s bestsellers, including full sets in Rust, Sage, Terracotta, and Petrol.
Each set is offered in nine different sizes, ranging from Twin to Cali King. Each $230-$340 set includes:
- 2 x 100% Flax Linen Pillowcases
- 1 x 100% Flax Linen Fitted Sheet
- 1 x 100% Flax Linen Duvet Cover
- 1 x 100% Flax Linen Storage Sack
Bed Threads Rust 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set Review
In a reddish, orange-brown color, the Rust 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set outfits your bed in a monotone color scheme. This color of the Bed Threads rust-colored sheets, pillowcases, and duvet pairs well with other neutrals and natural accents.
Bed Threads Sage 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set Review
The lightly colored bed set is all about being cool, calm, and collected. Aging with grace, the Sage 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set gets softer the more you wash it. This subtle morning dew color is on the cooler side.
Bed Threads Terracotta 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set Review
Pale pink-yellow color with a touch of heat, the Terracotta 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set exudes comfort. This set creates a softer look in the bedroom but is as masculine as it is feminine with bright sunny undertones and a desert-like feel.
Bed Threads Petrol 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set Review
A smoky, moody mix, Petrol is like an angry sea during a storm or a cloudy sky at night.
Supremely soft, the Petrol 100% Flax Linen Bedding Set will envelop you and soothe you into slumber with its relaxing look and feel. We like the idea of including this bed set in a bedroom filled with brassy metallics and hints of beige and white.

You want a bed set, but you like variation. The Build Your Own Bundle lets you mix and match colors to create the bed set you’ve always dreamed of having.

Is Bed Threads Ethical?
Bed Threads is very transparent about its sourcing and manufacturing. The flax it uses for the 100% French Flax Linen is pesticide-free and they utilize the entire plant, meaning there’s no waste leftover.
Once the flax has been processed, it’s sent to China where Bed Threads’ manufacturing facility is located. These facilities are OEKO-Tex certified, so customers can sleep comfortably knowing that the brand’s workers are paid above minimum wage and the conditions within them are clean, bright, and airy.
Are Bed Threads Soft?
When your Bed Threads sheet sets arrive, they won’t exactly be soft. They’re sort of scratchy at first, but after a few washes, they start to show their softer side. And the more you wash your sheets, the more luxurious and buttery they become.
How Do You Wash Bed Threads?
Bed Threads uses two different fabrics for its products that have different care instructions. We’ll outline both for you below:
- 100% French Flax Linen: Wash in cold water on a gentle cycle. Use liquid detergent only. Line dry. The brand doesn’t recommend tumble drying your Bed Threads flax linen sheets, but if you have to, be sure to do it on a low setting. Never bleach, iron, or dry clean.
- 100% Mongolian Cashmere: Turn items inside out. Use a cashmere to natural wool detergent. Wash by hand or a gentle wool setting in your washing machine. If using a machine, put the items in a dedicated bag. Lay flat to dry.
The bedding brand carries more than just sheets. On its website, you’ll find sleepwear and home accents as well, such as Bed Threads Memor Studio Ceramics.
In the next section of this Bed Threads review, we’ll go over a selection of duvets, bedding sets, and comfy sleep accessories. All products can be bought with deferred payment using Afterpay and Sezzle.
Bed Threads Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
You may be thinking that the brand’s products look and sound great, but want to know what they’re really like in reality. Don’t fret, this is the part of the Bed Threads review where we compile the most helpful customer comments found on the internet. Ahead, you’ll read reviews sourced from the brand’s website, Product Review, and Reddit.
On the brand’s website, its top-selling products have been reviewed dozens to hundreds of times. Customers are extremely satisfied with how its sheets, duvet covers, and pillowcases look, feel, and last. The following products have all earned 4.9/5 stars:
- Bed Threads Rust Duvet Cover (from 149 ratings)
- Sage 100% Linen Bedding Set (from 137 ratings)
- Turmeric 100% Flax Linen Pillowcases (from 179 ratings)
- Lavender Bed Threads Linen Bed Sheets (from 77 ratings)
- Oatmeal 100% Flax Linen Throws (from 30 ratings)
Ok, so they all rank extremely high with a good amount of ratings. We’re going to take a closer look at the Turmeric 100% Flax Linen Pillowcases because they have the highest amount of reviews (and they’re really pretty!).
Customers write about the lovely “strong” color of these pillowcases, along with their soft fabric and high-quality feel. One comprehensive Bed Threads review also complements the company’s site:
“Bed Threads were fantastic to deal with, their website was so easy to use, their delivery was prompt and the products are beautiful.” It appears this is a solid experience from start to finish.
Because 100% of reviewers would recommend these pillowcases, it was hard to find negative comments about them. The issues that buyers did have are more of a personal preference in regards to size, but we did find one that noted that “the cuff should be bigger as the pillow slips out sometimes.” Small details are important, especially for a luxury brand.
A Bed Threads review page on Product Review awarded the company an average of 4.6/5 stars based on 644 customer opinions. 519 shoppers gave the brand a perfect score, and only 12 left a 1-star rating.
Customers rave about great products and great customer service. Take this example: “I have sensitive skin and my husband sleeps hot. So these sheets are perfection on our skin from being cool and fresh to just looking so low key beautiful.”
Sheets are an important part of having a good night’s sleep, so it’s nice to know they work for many different preferences.
We headed into the 1-star section to see what those 12 buyers didn’t like about Bed Threads. It turns out most of them had the complete opposite opinion of what 5-star reviewers did. For example, one customer thought the brand’s sheets were mediocre: “The quality is average. Linen sheets are linen sheets.”
A Bed Threads review in a Reddit thread reveals issues that one user had with the company’s sheets. The concerns were that “after 3 washes, it seems to be getting rougher…the stitches and threads are coming off [like] crazy even being washed in the gentlest cycle.” This doesn’t sound typical as to how the sheets normally behave.
In response to that issue, another member who owns the Bed Thread rust sheets and pillowcases said that in terms of softness, “they’re pretty on par for what my smoother linen feels like.” That same member recommended the original user contact customer service.
In the end, they did: “Bed Threads has pretty great customer service and they were super apologetic about my experience. They also shipped the replacement the next day with expedited shipping(Australia to California).” Mistakes happen and it’s how a business reacts to them which is the important part.
So, are Bed Threads good? Overall, customers have great things to say about the company and love the quality and feel of its sheets. Everyone has preferences though, and it’s understandable to come across some shoppers who are looking for something different.
Is Bed Threads Worth It?
Bed Threads are linen sheets. Though they soften up over time, they may be thicker and less soft than other types of sheets. Linen has its perks though, like being long-lasting, breathable, and cool.
The company has a sort of rustic vibe about it and offers some vibrant earthy colors to create a natural aesthetic in your bedroom. The brand itself is carbon neutral and sticks to ethical practices in its factories. It ships in eco-friendly materials and doesn’t use pesticides on its flax. These decisions are all ones that we support.
We think that Bed Threads is a good brand and that its bedding is worth the buy—but because linen has a unique feel to it, it may not be for everyone.
