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, OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 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.

I am in live with my Napper. My 10 year old son is obsessed. It’s beautiful. I had an issue and was sent an email promptly. I love my naps now.BBearaby4/24/23

- MJMichael J.Verified Buyer4/7/23ReviewingVelvet Napper Black / 15Rated 5 out of 5 starsBest sleep in years
While in the hospital 18 years ago I contracted a man-made disease. One symptom was the destruction of all of the soft tissue in all of my joints. So I live via opiates and never sleep too well due to joint pain. So I gave this a try.
First night my wife panicked because I didn’t move, toss n turn etc at all! She kept checking that I was breathing! I wasn’t cured, but boy oh boy did I feel better than I have in a long time!
I can’t explain how or why it works, but it sure does work for my situation.BBearaby4/10/23

- JSJanell S.Verified Buyer3/22/23ReviewingVelvet Napper Rose Quartz / 15Rated 5 out of 5 starsA great, cozy decision!
This blanket was a goal piece for me. I finally allowed myself to get it after I thought about it for far too long. It's great for lounging for some cozy gaming time on the couch and even better for sleep! And while it's great that I like it, the icing on the cake is that three out of three cats agree that this blanket is indeed a great investment.BBearaby3/27/23

How do weighted blankets work?
Science has shown that sleeping under a weighted blanket improves sleep quality, lowers stress, and eases anxiety, which means you wake up to a brighter day!
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!
