Cotton Weighted Blanket
Our Cotton Napper is a knitted weighted blanket to help you fall asleep faster and feel calmer, naturally. Made of organic cotton. Your Napper should be about 10% of your body weight.
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. Your Napper should be roughly 10% of your body weight (e.g. 150lb body weight = 15lb Napper)
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.
Soft, sustainable fabric is the only thing inside our blanket to give it weight.
Our organic long-staple cotton is pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt.
Organic Content Standard (OCS), OEKO-TEX® 100 and Fairtrade International certified.
100% organic cotton.
A healthier choice for your home and the environment: organic cotton uses up to 90% less water than conventional farming methods and is free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, synthetics, or artificial softeners.
OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 ensures this product is safe for your family, the people who manufactured it and the environment.
Wash separately in cold water, on a delicate or permanent-press cycle, using mild or eco-friendly detergent. Tumble dry on low.
Avoid fabric softeners and bleach.
Note: your Cotton 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 Cotton Napper comes with a natural cotton dust bag that makes it easy to store, wash, or take along.
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 (e.g. 150lb body weight = 15lb Napper).
If you're between weights, we recommend you go with the lower weight category (e.g. 170lb body weight is best suited to a 15lb Napper).
The best weighted blankets are handmade! Since our Nappers are hand-knit, size and weight can vary slightly between each blanket.

What our customers say
- TBTaisiia B.Verified Buyer12/1/23ReviewingCotton Weighted Blanket Asteroid Grey / 15Rated 4 out of 5 starsGreat weighted blanket
After lots of research, I decided to get the Bearaby blanket and I was not disappointed. It has a great weight that's evenly distributed and it stretches enough to cover two people. It also has a very nice colour that matches the website images. One thing I didn't like is that the blanket itself is not soft. It has a more rigid structure so it's not very cuddly.

I have battled insomnia my whole life. The last several months I was only getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. I went to the sleep foundation website to see what they recommend and this weighted blanket came with high reviews so I bought one. I've had it a week and have been getting a solid 7 hours of sleep every night since I got it. I highly recommend this product.BBearaby11/30/23

- ESErika S.Verified Buyer11/21/23ReviewingCotton Weighted Blanket Moonstone Grey / 15Rated 5 out of 5 starssooooo niiiiiice
I love this thing! I slept under it a few nights and think I probably prefer to just use it as a comfort when I'm stressed. It was a little constrictive for nighttime. But not hot at all! It feels so good.BBearaby11/24/23

What are the health benefits of weighted blankets?
The most significant health benefits of weighted blankets include improved sleep and reduced feelings of anxiety and stress.
The benefit of a heavy knit blanket is the even weight distribution, which helps to extend the comfort of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) to your full body.
What is the ideal weighted blanket weight?
The recommended weighted blanket weight is 10% of your body weight. For someone who weighs 150 pounds, your best bet is the 15 lb weighted blanket. For someone closer to 200 lbs, we recommend our 20 lb blanket.
If you’re in-between weights, we recommend to bump up to the higher weight option. Our Nappers are available in 15, 20, and 25 lb weight options.
We also have an 8 lb weighted blanket, the Nappling, designed especially for kids.
How do you wash a woven weighted blanket?
Our Nappers are machine washable!
- Wash separately in cold or lukewarm water (max 90 °F)
- Select either the delicate or permanent-press cycle
- Use only gentle or mild detergent
- Avoid using fabric softener
- Tumble dry on low heat – please note it may take more than one round for your Napper to dry completely
- Never hang your Napper up to dry – it’ll stretch!
Make sure to check your washing machine’s weight capacity before washing your Napper. Our delightfully heavy blankets are great for deep sleep, but it’s essential to check beforehand if the washing machine model you have can bear the full weight of your blanket.

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.
While the Cotton Napper and Tree Napper both have the same braided blanket design, they’re made with different materials to suit different snuggle preferences.
