11 Best Weighted Blankets (2024): Cooling, Throws, and Eye Masks

Written by teobrito.com

Most of the weighted blankets we’ve tested are worth recommending—and there are a lot of them. However, these didn’t stand out as much as the picks above.

Quince’s Knit Weighted Blanket for $150: This open-knit blanket costs less than Bearaby’s but is as high-quality and uses a recycled polyester fill. There’s just one 15-pound weight option, and it’s a bit more rigid than what Bearaby offers. I like both models, but if you want a drapey blanket, go with Bearaby. (Quince makes some of our favorite sheets.) Available in 15 pounds

Luxome Weighted Blanket for $105 to $250: Luxome makes a pair of my favorite sheets, and now I also love its blanket. I tried the one-piece blanket with one side made of bamboo lyocell and the other a plush minky fabric, but there are a few options including those with a separate cover. Lying under the bamboo was extra cooling in the best way. It comes in an impressive amount of weight options. Available in 8, 15, 18, or 25 pounds

Sleep Number True Temp Weighted Blanket for $200: This blanket comes with a cover that’s meant to stay cool throughout the night and this was pretty accurate in my experience. I found the polyester material to be just slightly scratchy, so I wouldn’t want to sleep directly under it, but I typically layer a weighted blanket over a sheet and comforter anyway. Available in 12 or 20 pounds

Luna Sherpa Throw for $68: We love Luna’s many options linked above, and this sherpa throw is incredibly soft and just heavy enough for its size. It’s machine washable too. Available in 10 pounds

Gravity Weighted Blanket for $250 to $300: The Basics by Gravity is our top pick because it’s a great blanket for a great price. This original blanket from the brand is also stellar and is available in more weights, sizes, and pretty colors, but you’ll have to shell out for it. Available in 15, 20, or 35 pounds

Gravity’s Flex Travel Blanket for $50: Gravity also makes a small 10-pound blanket that folds into its included bag. It’s a bit noisy, like the material of a sleeping bag, but if you need something on the go it’s not a bad option. Available in 10 pounds

Tranquility Cooling Weighted Blanket for $40 to $50: A lot of budget weighted blankets are disappointing. This one genuinely surprised me. It felt great to cuddle up under, and it’s sufficiently weighty with one soft side and a slinky cool side (that stayed pretty cool). Unfortunately, the one we tried is nearly always out of stock, but there are others available from the brand that might be worth a shot. Available in 15 or 20 pounds

Thera Weighted Blanket for $79 to $129: This blanket might be the softest thing I’ve ever touched, like petting a furry animal. After my first few weeks with it, however, it ripped and let glass beads take over my bed like sand. I think kitty claws got the best of it, so keep that in mind and treat it carefully. Available in 10, 12, or 15 pounds

Aricove Weighted Blanket for $170 to $200: This is a fantastic cooling blanket to sleep with solo. It’s nice and thin, so you won’t feel trapped or too hot underneath. Available in 10, 12, 15, 17 20, or 22 pounds

Casper Weighted Blanket for $169 to $189: Casper is another popular bedding brand whose blanket is classic cool cotton rather than knit or plush, which can get hot. About the size of a throw blanket, it’s dense enough that even the lightest model gives you that comfortably squished feeling, while the heaviest is like a Thundershirt for humans. Casper has frequent sales too. Available in 10, 15, or 20 pounds

Layla Weighted Blanket for $189 to $239: Our tester loved snuggling with a partner under Layla’s massive king-size blanket. It’s double-sided with one cotton and one plush side. Available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds

Yogibo Calm Antimicrobial Weighted Blanket for $159: The actual blanket is cool cotton, but the real draw here is Yogibo’s famous cotton-and-spandex blend it uses for its covers. The company says it’s insanely soft, and it isn’t lying. It’s stretchy, smooth, and machine washable (the actual blanket is not). I found that pet hair clings to it though, which is common with softer fabrics. Available in 15 pounds

Gravid Weighted Blanket for $189 to $199: This blanket comes with a plush or cooling cover (or both), and this is where it shines. There’s nothing worse than a blanket cover with only a few attachment points so that after a few minutes underneath it, everything is twisted and off to one side. Gravid’s cover attaches with a zipper that goes the entire length of the blanket. Why other brands don’t do this is beyond me. Available in 15 or 20 pounds
