Introducing The Fall Harvest Collection – An Autumn Weighted Blanket Range
Our newest Napper range, grounded in authentically autumn shades, reaps inspiration from a bountiful harvest. Here’s the scoop on this season’s colorways, and we’ll also dig into how our fall Nappers help nourish calmness and weed out anxiety.
This fall, we’re taking cozy comfort to new heights — and weights. Our Fall Harvest weighted blanket collection embodies the essence of fall with organically dyed Nappers matched to our favorite fall produce.
As chillier weather starts setting in, these filler-free knitted weighted blankets are perfect partners for cozy naps and sweet dreams. The breathable comfort of a Fall Harvest Napper also pairs well with pumpkin lattes, reading nooks, and movie nights.
A focus on fall through sustainable fabrics
The seasons are changing, but our commitment to sustainability is unfailing. Our filler-free Fall Harvest Nappers are made from BCI-certified organic cotton and delivered to your doorstep (free of plastic-packaging) in a reusable cotton bag.

How Our Autumn Weighted Blankets Help You Fall Asleep
How do our Fall Harvest Nappers sow their seeds of stress-free sleep? Let’s dig into the details of how weighted blankets work.
Deep Touch Pressure
When we lie underneath a weighted object, relaxation isn’t far behind. Think about that heavy lead vest at the dentist’s office when you get X-rays or the calming comfort that comes from a long, warm hug from someone you love. That sensation is the side-effect of the simple science called deep touch pressure, or DTP for short.
When we use a weighted blanket, DTP activates the pressure points on our bodies, and our brains pump up the production of a hormone called serotonin.
Seratonin and Melatonin
Serotonin is our chief happiness hormone. Not only does it help regulate mood and reduce anxiety and feelings of depression, but it also helps with digestion. (You know that icky feeling you get in your stomach when you’re very anxious? Serotonin helps calm that.)
Now, superstar happy hormone serotonin is also a precursor for melatonin – a well-known sleep cycle regulator. This combination of serotonin and melatonin is calming, relaxing, and ultimately sleep-inducing.
But, there’s one more in the mix.
Cortisol, aka our stress hormone, is necessary in small amounts, but too much of it, and you’ll find it hard to wind down at bedtime. The DTP that weighted blankets cue helps lower cortisol levels, contributing to a more relaxed body and mind, settling in peaceful sleep.
Now that you know how our autumn-inspired weighted blankets help you fall asleep easier and feel calmer, you’re likely wondering where you can get one.
