This buttery soft and breathable organic cotton weighted blanket is ideal for all seasons.
Weighted blankets have been medically proven to aid naturally deeper sleep cycles. The weight on your body stimulates the production of serotonin (the happy hormone), reduces cortisol (the stress hormone), and increases melatonin, which helps you fall (and stay) asleep.
Our chunky-knit Cotton Napper helps you sleep more deeply, and wake feeling rested and revitalized. You can also head over to any Nordstrom location listed here to experience our Cotton Nappers in real life.
Free shipping and easy returns.
Our organic cotton is GOTS-certified, Fairtrade International certified and is pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt.

Our Napper is designed for a single person and comes in four different weights:
10 lbs - 40" x 64"
15 lbs - 40" x 72"
20 lbs - 45" x 72"
25 lbs - 48" x 72"
Your Napper should 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).
The best weighted blankets are handmade! Since our Nappers are hand-knit, size and weight can vary slightly between each blanket.

- DJDAVID J.Verified Buyer5/26/23ReviewingCotton Napper Evening Rose / 25Rated 5 out of 5 starsMy sister loves it!
My brother and I bought the 25 lb blanket for my sister as a birthday gift after I overheard once she always wanted a weighted blanket, but didn't want to spend the money on one. After doing some research and reading the NYTimes article on best ons, I picked out the Bearaby for several reasons that would fit her, including the No micro beads and weave factors, and the Evening Rose color I knew she would like. After we joked about how heavy the blanket was she said, upon trying it out at home, Once it’s unfolded and spread out it is a perfect weight. The relaxation is beyond what I have imagined, it is heavenly! I absolutely love it!

What is the difference between the Cotton Napper and the Tree Napper?
It’s simple: if you like it cozy, usually don’t get overly hot at night, share the bed with a furry friend, and you want a Napper you can use all year round – the Cotton Napper is for you.
If you tend to sleep hot and often find yourself waking up feeling a bit sweaty every night – the Tree Napper is your new best friend.
Our original Cotton Napper is made from 100% organic sustainably-farmed cotton. Our Tree Napper is made of Tencel, a fiber made from the wood pulp of trees grown and replaced on specialized tree farms. Our Tencel comes from eucalyptus wood pulp, making it extra cooling and completely biodegradable.
