Now, if you’ve heard of Tencel, you know it’s the magical ingredient for making ultra-soft and breathable sheets. Tencel is sourced from the wood pulp of sustainably grown eucalyptus trees to give you eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, and cooling fabric.

Who Zoma Tencel Sheets Are Best For
If you sleep hot and frequently wake up to sheets drenched in sweat, the Zoma sateen sheets are a perfect choice for you. The moisture-wicking material draws sweat away from your body and evaporates it quickly. You can pair these cooling sheets with the Zoma pillow to ensure you stay cool, all night long.
If you’re allergy-prone, you’ll sleep better on hypoallergenic sheets like this Zoma collection. Remember, it’s made from eucalyptus trees, known for their antimicrobial properties that are dust mite and allergen-resistant.
Also, since any moisture they absorb from you dries out quickly, mold and bacteria don’t get a breeding ground.
In addition, sleepers with sensitive skin will love the smooth non-abrasive feel of the fabric. It’s also made with non-toxic chemicals which won’t irritate your skin.
Plus, eco-conscious shoppers will sleep better knowing they’re supporting a company that cares about its carbon footprint.
Who Might Not Like Zoma Tencel Sheets
If you prefer sleeping on crisp fabric like cotton percale sheets, you may find the Zoma sateen sheets a bit too silky, almost slippery, for your liking.
Also, Tencel models cost more than most traditional bed sheets because of the work that goes into making them. If you’re looking for sheets below $100, this sheet set may not be a good fit.
What Do Zoma Tencel Sheets Feel and Look Like
The first thing you’ll notice when you lie on the Zoma bed sheets is the buttery-soft feel. While the Tencel fabric gives it a silky feel, the sateen weave elevates the sheet to a plush five-star hotel level.
As the sheets are extremely breathable, you’ll also find the surface cool to the touch—even in the middle of summer.
Furthermore, if you’re an active sleeper, you’ve likely had disastrous mornings with your legs tangled between untucked sheets. This model comes with a fitted sheet that has a thick silicone band that grips your bed and stays put all night.
The flat sheet is also large enough to tuck in.
Even more, the pillowcases have a special envelope closure to hold the pillow in place. Your bed will look neater when your pillows don’t stick out of their cases.
Zoma Tencel Sheets Material and Specs
Zoma Sleep uses Tencel manufactured by Lenzing AG, an Austria-based company known for its commitment to sustainable production.
Lenzing uses wood pulp from their organically grown Eucalyptus trees or sourced from suppliers who meet Zoma’s high eco-standards.
Zoma also recycles solvents and water used in manufacturing.
The wood pulp is passed through a non-toxic solvent and then dried to produce fine, long, and strong cellulose fibers. These are then sateen woven with a 300-thread count to produce incredibly soft and lightweight microfiber sheets.
The model is available in two neutral colors: white and gray, making it easier to decorate your bed as they’ll complement any color you pick for your other bedding.
The sheet sets are available in seven sizes from Twin to Split King and include:
- One 14-inch-thick deep fitted sheet (the Split King has two fitted sheets)
- One flat sheet
- Two pillowcases (the Twin and Twin XL sizes come with one pillowcase)
Here’s a detailed breakdown of the sizes, dimensions, and prices:
|38” x 74” x 14”
|38” x 80” x 14”
|54” x 75” x 14”
|60” x 80” x 14”
|76” x 80” x 14”
|72” x 84” x 14”
|38” x 80* x 14” (x2)
Zoma Tencel Sheets Performance
When it comes to luxury bedding, Zoma’s Tencel sheets set the bar pretty high. Imagine sleeping on a blend of breathable cotton and fine silk.
What makes this set so comfy?
The right thread count and a sateen weave.
The yarn is woven in an irregular pattern of “one thread under, three threads over” to achieve a smooth Tencel fabric with a subtle sheen. The extra threading also gives it a graceful drape that’s wrinkle-resistant.
Now, although sateen sheets can feel warmer than percale, this model has found a way around this by using a lower thread count of 300. This makes the sheet set lightweight and breathable, while still keeping the perks of sateen.
When you feel too hot at night, your body reacts naturally through sweating to keep you cool. The wrong sheets will get clammy and uncomfortable.
This sheet set knows exactly what to do with night sweats.
Like the best cooling sheets for hot sleepers, they’re excellent at absorbing moisture. However, the Tencel Lyocell fibers go an extra mile by wicking the moisture away. This means the sheets work in tandem with your body to draw away sweat and dry it out quickly.
Despite the initial high price, you’ll sleep on your Tencel sheet set for years before you have to replace it.
First, the cellulose fiber that makes Tencel is strong and doesn’t tear easily. The fine, long fibers and high-quality weaving give the sheet set a smooth, pill-resistant finish. This means that your sheets won’t produce those ugly small knots that appear in short-staple cotton sheets after several washes.
Even more, the wrinkle-resistant fabric means that you don’t have to iron after every wash thus maintaining its integrity and durability.
Delivery, Warranty, and Returns
- Shipping: Free shipping in the contiguous US with doorstep delivery by FedEx within 10–15 business days.
- Warranty: 1-year warranty covering manufacturer’s defects such as faulty seams and stitching flaws.
It’s important to note that the only time Zoma Sleep will replace your sheets for free is with a warranted defect, otherwise, they have a final sale policy with no exchanges or refunds applicable.
Commonly Asked Questions
How Do You Wash Zoma Tencel Sheets?
You can machine-wash your sheets with cool water and a mild detergent to keep the delicate fibers intact. Line-dry your sheets in the shade or set your dryer to low-tumble because too much heat will damage the sheets. You should also spread them immediately when they dry to prevent wrinkling.
Zoma Sleep recommends washing your sheets every two weeks.
Are Tencel Sheets Better Than Cotton Sheets?
Tencel is silky soft while cotton can vary depending on the fiber and weave. Long-staple cotton is softer than short-staple while percale weave is crisper and sateen weave silky. Tencel makes the best sheets for hot sleepers because of its moisture-wicking abilities.
Are Toxic Chemicals Used When Manufacturing Zoma Tencel Sheets?
Tencel is sourced from Eucalyptus trees but can’t be classified as natural because it undergoes chemical processing. However, the chemical solvent used in making the cellulose fibers is non-toxic.
