Snuggly, comforting weighted blankets are a trend that’s here to stay. Their soothing effects and cozy aesthetic make them an in-demand product, especially during the holiday season. If you’re in the market for one of these calming textiles, Bearaby’s Cotton Collection of hand-knit, organic weighted blankets can help you relax and even sleep better. Weighted blankets have been shown to provide calming benefits, reducing anxiety. And sleeping under one of Bearaby’s breathable, soft blankets can provide the ultimate self-care: rest!
Supporting sleep health is a great benefit for you, but Bearaby’s sustainable manufacturing also helps the planet. It’s really a win-win product. The blanket’s natural fibers will never release microplastics into the environment; in fact, it can eventually be composted rather than taking up space in a landfill. There are no pesticides, synthetics or artificial softeners used in Bearaby’s fabrics. The company uses long-staple, organic cotton that is Fairtrade International certified, which means the farmers who grow the cotton get a fair wage. These environmentally friendly and safe manufacturing conditions earn Bearaby blankets the designation MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®. And that’s something to celebrate.
Bearaby blankets are available in different weights, from a 6-pound children’s blanket to a 35-pound queen-sized one. Which weight is right for you? As a general guideline, your blanket should be approximately 10% of your body weight. So for a person who weighs 150 pounds, a 15-pound blanket is a good bet. 10% to 30% is the range generally recommended for children. Ultimately, though, it’s all about your personal comfort. Some folks like a heavier blanket, and some prefer lighter weight.
