As weighted blankets gain popularity, more and more companies pop up with options. Most of the ones we’ve tried are worth recommending, including all the ones here.
Aricove Weighted Blanket for $140: This is a fantastic cooling blanket to sleep with solo. It’s nice and thin, so you won’t feel trapped or too hot underneath. Aricove offers 30-day returns. Available in 10, 12, 15, 17, or 20 pounds
Yogibo Calm Antimicrobial Weighted Blanket for $159: The actual blanket is cool cotton, but the real draw here is Yogibo’s famous cotton and spandex blend it uses for its covers. The brand says it’s insanely soft, and it isn’t lying. It’s stretchy and smooth and is machine washable (the actual blanket is not). I found that pet hair really clung to it, though, which is common with softer fabrics. It says it has an antimicrobial treatment to keep it “fresh longer.” You can return it within 14 days.
Casper Weighted Blanket for $169-$189: Casper is another popular bedding brand whose blanket is that classic, cool cotton rather than knit or plush, which can get hot. About the size of a throw blanket, it’s dense enough that even the lightest model gives you that comfortably squished feeling, while the heaviest is like a Thundershirt for humans. Casper offers 30-day returns. Available in 10, 15, or 20 pounds
YNM Knitted Weighted Blanket for $199–$279: YNM’s knitted blanket is soft and perfectly drapey–softer than both the Yaasa and Bearaby. It feels lighter than the others I tried, so newbies to weighted life might prefer it. There are some velvet options available, and the brand has several other types of blankets that we haven’t tried yet, including a cooling one. Returns are available within 30 days. Available in 10, 12, 15, or 20 pounds
Gravity Blanket for $215–$275: Though weighted blankets were a thing before the Gravity Blanket was announced on Kickstarter in 2017, its success quickly made it the face of the category. WIRED writer Arielle Pardes tried it in 2018 and compared it to being “wrapped up in a toasty tortilla like a human burrito.” The Gravity Blanket has gone down in price since her review, making this thick blanket a great option if you’re perpetually cold. Available in 15, 20, 25, or 35 pounds
Gravity Travel Blanket for $100: Do you need a blanket on the go? The material is a bit noisy, like a sleeping bag, but it folds up and fits neatly into its included bag. Both Gravity options can be returned within 30 days.
Layla Weighted Blanket for $180–$240: Most of our options come in several sizes, but Layla offers a king-sized version, if you’d like to cuddle with someone else. It is often discounted, and it can be returned within 120 days. Available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds
