What is Tencel fabric?+
Tencel, also called Tencel Lyocell, is a plant-based fiber manufactured from tree pulp, that has been harvested in an environmentally responsible way.
The Tencel in our Tree Nappers is made from eucalyptus wood pulp. All the steps of producing this fabric are entirely eco-friendly, from sustainably sourcing the wood, to creating the fibers, to dyeing the yarn. Not only is tree fabric sustainable, but it also is naturally cooling. And the benefits don’t end there! Tree fabric is also moisture-wicking, which leads to reduced bacterial growth so that even the sweatiest of sleepers can feel comfy under a cooling weighted blanket made of tree fabric!
Which Napper is best for hot sleepers?+
We always recommend the Tree Napper to hot sleepers or anyone living in hotter climates. The naturally breathable qualities of the Tencel material we use to knit these Nappers, paired with our innovative open-loop weave design, delivers a cool and comfy night’s rest.
I’m looking for a cooling weighted blanket – which Napper should I choose?+
Our Tree Napper is a cooling weighted blanket made with a moisture-wicking, breathable fabric called Tencel. While all our Nappers are designed with an open-loop knit design to allow for airflow, our Tree Nappers are by far the coolest.
How much cooler is the Tree Napper than the Cotton Napper?+
In a nutshell: The Tree Napper delivers airy, cooling comfort, while the Cotton Napper treads a perfect balance between breathable and cozy.
The key difference comes down to the fabric. The Tree Napper is woven from a cool-to-the-touch, moisture-wicking fabric called Tencel. It gives off that ‘cool-side-of-the-pillow’ feel, and when coupled with our breathable, open-loop knit design, it really helps to keep you nice and cool all night long.
While the Cotton Napper might not have the same cooling properties, the organic cotton we use is naturally breathable, and our breathable design keeps you cozy but comfy. A handful of our customers actually found the Cotton Napper too cool, so you never know – one person’s cozy is sometimes another person’s cool!
