I have found our favorite sheets at Goodwill.....old muslin or flannel sheets, white. They are not organic, but they have been washed probably hundreds of times......so I am reusing.....and supporting an organization I like.....and the sheets feel great !!! Our oldest son is super picky and only likes sheets he says are "cold" and the only sheets I have ever found that meet his standards are super old ones that have been washed for many many years.......

I've seen inexpensive organic sheets and towels at Quilts Etc (in a lot of malls).
Last year they were quite cheap in January. They also have organic sheets at Home Outfitters and they aren't too expensive .. at least not 200 bucks.

I just wanted to say that I, too, like my sheets "cold" and I know EXACTLY what he is talking about. I love super old sheets that have been washed and washed and washed.

Wow, there are two of you ! I thought he might be the only one !!!

The ONLY way I can shop for sheets for him is to drag him through a thrift store, and hand him the sheets and have him feel them. He rubs them on his cheek. He either a) hands them back to me with a shake of his head and the pronouncement "NOT cold", or b) hugs them and rubs them with a big grin saying "these are COLD !!!! I LOVE them !!"

Previously I had spent quite a bit of money trying to buy sheets for him...trying to figure out the quality of "cold" and how to purchase it.....I tried some really nice, $$$$ sheets which he turned out not to like at all !! And his is the only twin bed in the house, so it's not like I can use them on a different bed. Gaaaugh ! But, at least, what he turned out to like usually costs only a few dollars !!!

I found organic cotton sheets at TJ Maxx for a great price.

I wait for my moms hand me down sheets. She replaces hers too soon so they always last me a few years.

I didn't realize they had to use toxic chemicals to make bamboo fabrics.
