Red Weighted Blanket
The use of weighted blankets has been scientifically proven to result in deeper sleep cycles. Beyond the sleep benefit, the gentle weight on your body can also help lower stress hormone levels in your body.
This happens because the evenly distributed weight on your body stimulates the production of serotonin (the happy hormone), reduces cortisol (the stress hormone) and increases melatonin levels that can help you fall (and stay) asleep better.
Our red weighted blanket provides the comfort you need to sleep more deeply and wake feeling refreshed.

As for your Tree Napper, wash it separately in cold water, on a delicate or permanent-press cycle, using mild or eco-friendly detergent. Tumble dry on low.
Avoid fabric softeners or bleach.
Note: your Napper may take more than one cycle to be fully dried. Avoid hanging your Napper to dry – it'll stretch out its lovely loops. Avoid top-loading washing and drying machines.
Your Napper comes with a natural cotton dust bag that makes it easy to store, wash, or take along.

Our red weighted blankets are designed for single-person use and come in four different weight and size variations:
- 15 lbs - 40" x 72"
- 20 lbs - 45" x 72"
- 25 lbs - 48" x 72"
Choose a blanket that will be roughly 10% of your body weight (i.e 150lb body weight = 15lb Napper).
If you're between weights, we recommend you go with the higher weight category (i.e 170lb body weight is best-suited to a 20lb Napper).
