Can You Use a Weighted Blanket in the Summer?

Yes, you heard it right — you can use a weighted blanket in the summer without overheating! The trick is to choose a weighted blanket with a cooling design that allows air to flow. Our Nappers are made with a chunky-knit, open weave design and get their weight only from layers of heavy fabric, so they’re a great option for hot sleepers.

What weighted blanket is best for summers?

We recommend choosing a weighted blanket that’s around 10% of your overall body weight, during the summer and all year round. Individual snuggle preferences may vary, but what matters most for keeping cool with a weighted blanket is the design and materials of the blanket, not the amount of weight.

What is the difference between a weighted blanket and a cooling weighted blanket?

Unlike traditional weighted blankets, cooling weighted blankets are made with breathable and moisture-wicking materials. The best cooling weighted blankets are constructed in a way that allows air to flow through the night.

With a combination of cooling materials and breathable design, you’ll be on your way to calming naps in no time!

What are the benefits of a cooling weighted blanket?

Cooling weighted blankets can help you feel secure and snug through the night without overheating. Deep Touch Pressure is scientifically proven to lower cortisol levels while boosting melatonin and serotonin production, so if you tend to sleep hot, a cooling weighted blanket can help you enjoy these benefits while staying comfortable-as-can-be.

Do weighted blankets help with hot flashes?

Cooling weighted blankets can be helpful for people experiencing hot flashes because they can help you stay asleep through the night. Hot flashes are known for disrupting the sleep schedules of menopausal people, so sleeping with a weighted blanket that doesn’t add any extra heat can be a useful solution for both better sleep and cooler nights.

Our Tree Napper is our best weighted blanket for hot flashes because it’s made with TENCEL™, a naturally moisture-wicking material made from eucalyptus fibers.

And like all our Nappers, the Tree Napper gets its calming weight only from layers of heavy fabric — no sweaty fillers in sight!

Plastic free is the way to be

All of our Tree Nappers are vegan, hypoallergenic, and completely plastic-free, so they’ll leave zero trace when their lifespans have run out. The only thing that gives our weighted blankets their weight, is fabric. Layers and layers of it. That means no plastic pellets inside, only soft, cooling, natural fibers.

Plus, not only is the TENCEL™ fabric highly breathable, it’s biodegradable on land and in water. Made from wood pulp derived from Eucalyptus trees, our TENCEL™ uses 10x less water to produce than most fabrics, and is made in a responsible, closed loop process.
