Try CozyEarth.com premium bamboo sheets and bedding. Absolutely no comparison to the low quality Target ones. Cozy Earth bamboo sheets are hypoallergenic and retain their superior softness, high quality and shape over time. I have a cat but have never noticed any pet hair clinging to the sheets. Also dissipates body heat and moisture to keep you cool unlike cotton sheets that trap heat.

I have no problems with dog hair on my sheets. They are 100% cotton with no chemicals added and a higher thread count which makes them tightly woven. I usually get around 500-600 thread count. I have 5 dogs and 2 of them sleep under the top sheet. When it thunders - add two more to the mix. The 5th one stays on top. All I do is just brush the fitted sheet with my hand. Top sheet and cotton quilt I shake. Works like a charm. A friend of mine has linen sheets and she swears by them. She has one dog who ends up on her bed.

I can understand the more woven the fabric (thread count), the less any hair will become "stuck".

Both cotton and linen never "trap heat." All my T-shirts are pure 100% cotton and I work outdoors in the summer as well as winter. Nary a heat problem here in SE texas with cotton. Linen is very well known to be a "summer" fabric with linen suits for me and plenty of linen shirts, skirts and dresses for women. Great for the tropics and heat on that porch in the South.

I like cotton or a blend of cotton and a little polyester, with a high thread count. I have had all types, the ones I hate are those made of microfiber. They get staticky and are slippery. They only look good but don't feel good.

As for color, I prefer sheets with a nice patern. White looks like hotel and that's not my preference.

I have down duvets and I use duvet covers for them, can't stand flat sheets sliding off. If I can't find nice duvet covers (or affordable ones) I use 2 flat sheets and sow them together back to back, otherwise the flat sheets from all the sets never get used.

My problem lately is finding good plump but firm pillows. I hate the latex ones. Also feather or down filled ones. Somehow the filling used in pillows these days is not like it used to be. Every pillow I buy, regardless of price and initial firmness, ends up squished and limp. I've bought so many lately, no joy.
