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 Fairtrade International certified and is pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt.

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 or 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.

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.

My beloved weighted blanket finally but the dust and spilled her glass beads all over my washing machine. I didn’t want to go through that heartbreak again so I found these gorgeous Bearaby weighted blankets. It is perfect. Evenly distributed weight, no weird smell (talking to you, Amazon blankets), beautiful, and I can sleep well knowing it’s ethically and sustainably made. She’s perfect.

- MKMaggie K.Verified Buyer3/20/23ReviewingCotton NapperRated 5 out of 5 starsPerfect!
The 10lb is a perfect size for a twin bed. I'm 5'1" and it easily covers me from neck to toes. It's breathable because of the material and knitted design. So I never get too hot. The weight is soothing and I feel like I've been sleeping better. Overall I love this blanket and will probably buy another one and maybe give as a gift as well.

I love my cotton napper. I will be buying another one for my husband. He loves the blanket too. I sleep better with the blanket. It helps when I have stress from work, I work from home, and just drape it around my shoulders while I work. Its actually a really cooling blanket and can be used all year round. If you want a little more warmth then just layer another blanket on top.

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.
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 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.
