This article will help answer the question: what kind of Weighted Blanket should I get? From the cotton to the cooling, the types of Weighted Blanket are all designed the same, but they suit different people and needs. Discover which one is the best fit for you!
What are the types of Weighted Blankets
The types of Weighted Blankets are categorized by fabric. The essence of every YNM Weighted Blanket remains the same—pockets of micro glass beads sandwiched between layers of premium fabric, spread across the entire area of a blanket. The different types of Weighted Blanket change based on the fabric.
The original YNM Weighted Blanket uses 100% cotton. Cotton is light, breathable, and soft on the skin. It strikes the perfect balance of comfort on the skin, temperature, and design. This extends to our cotton covers also!
However, with time, demand increased for a Weighted Blanket tailored for people who sleep a little hot at night. Unlike the other types of Weighted Blanket, the cooling bamboo fabric is designed specifically to help better regulate airflow. The qualities of the bamboo viscose are such that heat will easily pass through the layers.
Rather than the heat of your body being trapped under the covers (like traditional blankets), the cooling blanket allows for the heat to escape. Allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of a Weighted Blanket and stay cool at night!
What are different Weighted Blankets used for?
The different types of Weighted Blankets are all designed to serve the same core benefits. Primarily, they help improve the quality of your sleep. By hugging your body closely throughout the night, chemicals release into your body to simulate the experience of a hug. This helps you to feel relaxed!
They also help to serve several other benefits. Stress, anxiety, pain relief (RLS), and more are all conditions which have helped some of the millions of YNM users every night! You can read more about the benefits in this article here!
Don’t just take our word for it!
“For several years now I have had trouble sleeping. I tend to wake up at least 6 times a night and it takes me up to an hour to fall asleep even if I'm tired. I find that when I use the weighted blanket I wake up less often and I fall asleep faster. I also tend to have a lot of nightmares for some reason as well, but that has also decreased since using the blanket. I am very sensitive to warm temperatures (can't even sleep under the same blanket as someone else or i get too hot), so I was worried that the blanket would be like a sauna. To my delight, unless i go to bed stressed and riled up, the blanket keeps me at the perfect temperature. I love my blanket!”
“I never write reviews but thought I should after buying two of these blankets! I haven’t slept through the night for almost 6 years, thanks to a difficult pregnancy and baby. It trained my body to only sleep a couple hours at a time. I tried everything, and am shocked that a weighted blanket worked so magically! From restless legs, insomnia, anxiety, it is an instant fix! I have it draped over me while I write this and it feels amazing!”
