This lustrous, rich eco-velvet weighted blanket is luxuriously soft and snuggly, making it perfect for cozying up in style.
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 Velvet Napper helps you sleep more deeply, and wake feeling rested and revitalized.
Free shipping and easy returns.
Our sublimely soft eco-velvet is spun and brushed into a super-smooth signature fabric with a lush, luminous finish.
Unlike typical velvet, our sustainable eco-velvet is made from ocean bound plastic, preventing 900 plastic bottles from polluting our oceans.
100% upcycled, GRS-certified, STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and Fairtrade International certified (100% recycled polyester)
We recommend dry cleaning your Velvet Napper to ensure it stays wonderfully soft and in tip-top shape for many naps to come!
Our Napper is designed for a single person and comes in 3 different weights:
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
- CSChrystal S.Verified Buyer1/27/23Rated 5 starsAmazing Blanket
I bought my weighted blanket due to sleep issues and this blanket is amazing.
It has been everything people raved about I have definitely been sleeping so much better and would highly recommend for anyone who struggles with sleep 💤 you won't regret it, it's worth every penny.
The only thing I will say is if you want to be able to wash it don't get the velvet napper like I did even though I love the fabric it is dry clean only.
- DGDominique G.Verified Buyer1/21/23Rated 5 starsDidn’t know how much I needed this
So comfortable and soothing to sleep with. I’ve always been someone who can fall asleep easily but this helps me sleep solidly. I don’t wake up in the middle of the night unless it’s to readjust blanket. Still figuring out if I prefer it over or under my main blankets. Definitely recommend saving up for this purchase. You’re worth it.BBearaby1/23/23

The weight helps to ‘ground’ you, helping you to feel safe and secure. It feels like your blanket is giving you a big cozy hug!
