The Best Natural Fiber Pajamas for Sustainable Living

Is there anything better than getting cozy and relaxing before bed? I am all about getting into pajamas at the start of the evening, often even before dinnertime! It’s truly one of my favorite ‘self-care’ activities as it makes for such a delightful evening, even during the dinner and bath time rush with little ones.

What is a natural fiber?

Natural fibers —such as cotton, wool, silk, linen, bamboo— are made out of natural materials that come from plants, animals or minerals whereas synthetic fibers are man made materials typically formed through a chemical process. 

Pajamas are clothing items most of us wear for a significant period of time and at night our bodies detox and restore, so choosing natural fiber fabrics and avoiding synthetics like polyester and acrylic can help decrease our body’s toxic load.

To make it easier, I created a walk through video of my favorite natural fiber pajama brands and styles and why I love them. 

The Best Natural Fiber Pajamas for Sustainable Living

These are brands and styles I’ve personally tried and highly recommend.

Mate the Label // My go to for organic cotton basics, I just adore their shirts and thermals for everyday. Their basics are so soft, I often wear them as pajamas and lounge wear. Their quality and colors stay soft and vibrant even after many washes, for sure worth the investment. Runs true to size, maybe a tad on the roomy side.

Favorites: Thermal Wide Leg Pant, Organic Thermal Short, Raw Neck Boxy Tee, Tencel Sleep Pant

 

Lake Pajamas // So soft and buttery, these are a house favorite and the styles are timeless. Their pima cotton is an all natural fiber and both soft and durable. Their pants run pretty true to size, a bit on the smaller side, but their shorts run pretty small—size up.

Favorites: Pima Short Long Set, Cloud Pajama Set

Cuyana // Timeless staples to add to your wardrobe that you will love wearing again and agina. Most pieces are GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified, these truly stand the test of time and wear beautifully!!

Favorites: French Terry Wide Leg Cropped Pant, Pima Classic Pant, Pima Drape Back Top

Cleobella // So feminine I just love their soft colors, floral designs and timeless styles with a flare of modern. Their clothes are all ethically made and GOTS certified organic cotton. Fits true to size.

Favorites: Hydrangea Pajama Set, Jogger Pants

Luyana // Luxurious sleep ware that uses sustainable fabrics, good for you and the planet dyes and ethical factories and makers. Very worth the investment and their fabrics hold value and even help regulate your body temperature while you sleep. These run small—size up!

Petite Plume // Favorite for classic PJs, especially at Christmas time. Their cotton is crisp yet so soft (softer with each wash) and lasts forever. Fits true to size.

Organic, natural fiber pajamas for babies + kids

Quincy Mae // My absolute favorite for babies and toddlers, the feel and quality is the best. These are SO soft and all organic cotton! Fits true to size.

Hart + Land // These are so silky soft and the sweetest designs. Most are organic cotton but all styles use non toxic dyes, are grown without pesticides and Oeko-Tex certified.

Simple Folk Co // Great neutral options for onesies, loungewear and pajamas. We adore their sweaters in our house. They are such great quality and everything is so soft. Typically fits just a bit on the larger, cozy side.

Pehr // They just started making organic cotton basics for babies and they are so silky soft. Fits a bit smaller, size up to last longer. Love their sleep sacks too!

Petit Plume // So timeless and fun, we love these especially for Christmas time. They use high quality, very soft cotton and no added flame retardant chemicals. Adult sizes are very true to size but for littles size up for longer wear.

Monica and Andy // Love their quality. Fits just a tad small.

Hanna Anderson // They have some great organic cotton options for babies and older children. Some of their fabrics seem very thin and not the softest in my opinion.

Tips for choosing natural fiber pajamas

  • invest wisely: These pieces will truly last a long time and wash and wear great. You may spend a bit more upfront but will be thankful in the long run. Invest in pieces you totally love!
  • look for certifications:  If you want to choose all natural fibers, look for cotton, ethically made silk, linen, bamboo or labels like GOTS or Oeko-Tex. Check out our Best All Natural Fabrics + Brands post >
