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. Your Napper should be roughly 10% of your body weight (i.e 150lb body weight = 15lb Napper).
Our Velvet Napper helps you sleep more deeply, and wake feeling rested and revitalized.
Free shipping and easy returns.
Soft, sustainable fabric is the only thing inside our blanket to give it weight.
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, 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 (e.g. 150lb body weight = 15lb Napper).
If you're between weights, we recommend you go with the lower weight category (e.g. 170lb body weight is best suited to a 15lb Napper).
The best weighted blankets are handmade! Since our Nappers are hand-knit, size and weight can vary slightly between each blanket.

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!
