Many people love sleeping with a weighted blanket because of all the benefits. Those on the autism spectrum often find that they like the constant pressure that the blanket provides. If you have restless leg syndrome, you might love how the blanket adds just enough pressure to keep your body under control while you sleep. Others who might benefit from weighted blankets include people with anxiety disorders as well as insomniacs and others who find it difficult to fall or stay asleep. At Bed Bath & Beyond, you will find both light and heavy weighted blankets from some of the top brands along with some exclusive options.
The most important thing to consider when buying a heavy weighted blanket is the blanket's weight. Depending on how much you weigh, you can go with a blanket that weighs up to 19 pounds. These heavier blankets are best for people who weigh 190 pounds or more. A lighter blanket in the 10-to-12-pound range is best for individuals who weigh less. If you sleep with your partner every night, you may want to go with a heavier option. Most kids do well with blankets that weigh 10 pounds or less.
Don't forget the size of your bed, either. We have weighted blankets that are big enough to cover a queen or king bed along with blankets & throws you can use while sitting on the couch. If you want to feel relaxed and calm while watching HBO Max or Netflix, choose one of our throw blankets. They come in sizes that are perfect for covering your legs and lower body while you sit and get comfy. You might even prefer one with a soft velvet feel. A shawl or wrap design is just as easy to use and allows you to wrap the blanket around your shoulders.
Do you have a hard time sleeping because your body runs too hot? You don't need to turn on the air conditioner or use a fan to stay cool - you can snag a cooling weighted blanket instead. Though these blankets add the extra weight that you need, they also use glass pellets, bamboo covers, and other components that help you stay cool. If you run cold and usually sleep with multiple blankets, shop for a heated weighted blanket. These blankets use flannel and other materials that retain your body heat. With a heated weighted blanket, you also get a control that allows you to adjust the temperature whenever you need more or less heat.
Buying a weighted blanket from us is easy because you can shop for blankets that have pellets made from glass, steel, or plastic inside. We also let you view all the blankets by weight, from 5 pounds to 25 pounds. You can pick out a washable weighted blanket that fits in your washing machine, too. We'll be happy to help you find the product that is just right for you.
