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.

- LDLorraine D.Verified Buyer11/28/22Rated 5 starsWorth waiting for!
This is my second purchase from Bearaby, and I am so delighted I cannot tell you enough about it! The texture is divine, so very cozy, and the weight (15 pounds) is just perfect to keep me snuggly and warm but not too warm... really perfect! The peridot color is so beautiful and almost neutral as well.

Love, love, love! Best sleep ever! The Peridot Velvet is GORGEOUS!
- ATAlvin T.Verified Buyer11/22/22Rated 5 starsWow, just wow!
I wasn't sure about the purchase but had to try it. I had the toughest time remaining asleep with my previous blankets for many reasons, including not being able to get comfortable for long periods of time and the inability to regulate my body's temperature during sleep. The Velvet Napper simply solved all those problems. I've also tried weighted blankets and they never quite settled my body the same until now. I'm just so comfortable at sleep now and have no problem staying asleep! I love this blanket so much I bought another for the wife since she had the same issue staying asleep.
Now if only my cat stops being so afraid of stepping on the blanket!BBearaby11/25/22
