Warm evenings are fabulous. Warm nights? Not so much.

Which is why getting the right bedsheets now could save you a lot of sweat, tears and sleepless nights as the UK heatwave continues.

This Specialist Temperature Balancing 400 Thread Count Cotton Deep Fitted Sheet (and accompanying Specialist Temperature Balancing 400 Thread Count Cotton Bedding) from John Lewis & Partners has been specially created to balance your temperature and ensure that - come rain or shine - getting some good quality shut-eye isn’t your problem.

Why we rate it

Temperature controlling bed accessories has become big business over the last few years: from mattresses that cool down or heat up via a control to duvets that can balance two totally different temperatures at once.

The problem is, they’re pretty pricey, which is why we love these affordable temperature control sheets.

They’re proof that you don’t need to really shell out to enjoy clever design and high-quality fabric.

How the product works

The deep fitted sheet, which also comes in a flat design, is made from 100% cotton so it feels super soft and luxurious.

It can also be easily washed and ironed, and bought in sizes single through to super king.

The innovative Hygro technology spins the fabric to create a hollow core which traps air to insulate and keep you warm in colder temperatures.

In addition, the natural construction helps to wick away moisture lost during sleep to keep you cool in warmer conditions. So no matter the weather, you won't be troubled by the fluctuations in body temperature which can so easily disturb good quality sleep.​

What the reviews say

With a combined total of 63 reviews between the fitted and flat sheet, the resounding conclusion is that these sheets are a must buy.

  • “I’ve searched a very long time to find sheets that, I can’t wait to get into bed. I’ve finally found the one!! The reason I bought the Temperature Balance is because I was fed up waking up due to my partner sleeping in a sweaty patch. I will admit: didn’t think it would solve my problem. It did! I was got a pleasant surprise that it was 100% cotton. Nothing else! I can’t wait for the pillowcases and kingsize duvet to available so I can get the full set.”

  • “I bought this sheet, matching pillow cases and quilt cover as I've been having problems with being too hot at night time. This bedding is wonderful, it feels luxurious, light, airy and most of all I am not as hot as I was. I have noticed my husband also isn't generating as much heat and therefore we are both getting a better night's sleep. It is a considered purchase because of the price but I found it has helped with my night sweats. I'm not sure if you would get away with just using either the sheet or the duvet cover, I think you would need the complete set to get the full benefit. I have ordered my second set.”

  • “Bought this fitted sheet 4 weeks ago and I’ve never slept so well!! The quality is superb and the fit is very generous even after many washes and tumble drying.”

    Other shoppers provided helpful, additional tips:

  • One very slight thing to be aware of is that they have a very deep overfit and I found they needed to be well pushed under the mattress to keep the surface tight.
