OUR KNITTED WEIGHTED BLANKET
Everything you need to know
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.
Free shipping and hassle-free returns.
Our organic long-staple cotton is pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt.
MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® and Fairtrade International certified (95% Cotton, 5% Spandex)
Organic cotton is naturally breathable and 100% biodegradable.
A healthier choice for your home and the environment: organic cotton uses 85% less water than conventional farming methods and is free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, synthetics, or artificial softeners.
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.
Your Cotton Napper comes with an organic 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 (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.

What our customers say
Best purchase ever
Before buying this blanket I used to wake up 2-3 times during the night. From the first night using it, I’ve slept continuously, all the way through. This blanket works like magic.
Amazing, cozy, heavy without being restrictive. Haven’t slept this well in a long time.
Totally hits function meets fashion
Love the style - it looks like one of our other "designer" throw blankets but much more comfortable. Wish I had more couches so I could have more Nappers!
It has changed our world
Our 8 year old never sleeps more than 2 hours at a time, and is constantly waking her mom. She’s had the Nappling for a week, and has been sleeping from 9pm - 6am without budging. This has been a wonderful shock to us, that a blanket has changed her sleeping habits.
If you have trouble sleeping or chronic insomnia, this is worth it. I haven’t known continuous sleep in years. No meds. No melatonin. Just a super comfortable blanket, so happy with my purchase!
Perfect for two in a Cali King!
The Hugger was the perfect solution for me and my spouse - we are both able to stay asleep much better than we did pre-Bearaby and we can get some snuggles in. The blanket is beautiful and is plenty big for our California King bed. We are super happy with this purchase!
I can't recommend this enough
I have had insomnia since I was a child. I've tried everything, literally, to help. I still have trouble drifting off, but this blanket allows me to sleep all night and wake refreshed. I love it.
I love this weighted blanket!
The velvet feels so luxurious and I slept like a baby after using it. I woke up refreshed and didn’t experience my usual restless leg syndrome. I love how the weight is evenly distributed, unlike other blankets that have beads that tend to favor the side that’s draped.
No more anxiety
I used to have intense anxiety attacks right before I'd fall asleep. Sleeping with my Cotton Napper has virtually eliminated those.
Love it...it’s super soft and it seems to help with my restless leg syndrome. I was concerned that it would be too heavy since I only weigh 98 pounds but it is perfect. I have to fight my dogs for it!
You won't be disappointed!
I've tried other weighted blankets, and couldn't get over the heat or the sound but the Bearaby one is simply awesome! I get hot easily and never get overheated with this Napper. It feels so soft and smooth, and the color is gorgeous!
Got this for my son
My son who struggles with anxiety related to autism, this morning he came down and told me his Bearaby has made a huge difference in how well he sleeps. Which is making a difference in his mood and ability to focus.

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.
