QUALITY RESULTS PER TESTING
These sheets passed with flying colors on all counts. Lab testing showed the thread count was accurate 300 TC. The cotton used was long staple. They scored highly on the pilling test, meaning if properly cared for they aren’t likely to pill. Shrinkage was minimal as well. They did get softer which each wash as is the case with most well-made cotton sheets.
– The 300 single ply sateen weave sheets actually came to be 300 TC.
– The organic cotton was long staple.
– They scored highly on the pilling test, meaning if properly cared for they would not pill easily.
– Shrinkage was minimal as well.
– They did get softer which each wash as is the case with most well made cotton sheets.
– They are listed on fairtradeusa.org (pay a premium for sheets to be made without child labor & help empower workers).
– The sateen fabric is woven, cut & sewn in India using fair trade certified organic cotton.
– Their organic cotton flannel collection is made in Portugal using certified organic cotton.
They are the go to brand for their banded & flannel collections. On the solid colors for the same exact thread count and construction, Brooklinen, Nest Bedding & Sol Organics offers a much better value for their sheets.
They do have a myriad of colors which will mix and match well with all bedroom interiors. There Strong point is the Banded and Flannel Collection.

Boll and Branch are Fair Trade & GOTS certified, and they are truly providing a luxurious and ethical product into the market place. The one set back is their price, with organic cotton becoming more accessible, other companies have been able to launch the same quality sheets at better prices. Overall the 300 thread count long staple organic cotton sheets were nice with little to no shrinkage. They breathe really well, another bonus is their deep pocketed sheets that fit mattresses up to 17 inches. We definitely recommend them for their banded and flannel sheet collection. We found their basic solid colors collection a little pricey.

- Overall Rating 80%
How We Tested: Independent labs evaluated the durability of each sheet set by testing its fabric strength, tear resistance, pilling resistance, shrinkage after laundering and appearance after laundering. We also examined its wrinkle resistance and fit to mattress when new and after multiple wash cycles. We then had consumer testers blindly rate the fabric for softness and their opinion of the feel.
