Is it washable? Yes, but only by hand or dry clean.

Sizes

Does the weighted blanket come in more than one size? Bear offers this more as a one-size throw option.

  • The Yaasa Weighted Blanket combines the popularity of a weighted blanket with the style of a chunky knit throw – it looks amazing on a bed or furniture!
  • Instead of beads to add weight, which can shift and move around, theirs uses polypropylene fibers.
  • Cover made of 100% natural cotton – in two colors: cream or grey.
  • Choose from 15 or 20 lb weight.

The Yaasa Weighted Blanket

Many boxed brand mattresses have or are coming out with weighted blankets. Yaasa’s take on the trend is unique in that the blanket isn’t for comfort alone—it’s very stylish too. In fact, you can’t tell that it’s a weighted blanket until you put it around you and feel the calming effect it has on your frayed nerves. That means it looks great on your couch but also helps with stress.

The weight of the blanket provides a warm, gentle pressure that mimics the feeling of being held. This comforting pressure immediately induces calm and contentment.cream weighted blanket on living room chair

What we love is that The Yaasa Weighted Blanket offers the benefits of a weighted blanket, without the heat, as the knitted cotton adds breathability. Unboxers will love the natural cotton, however, it will need to be dry cleaned.

You can choose between the 15 or 20 lb version. The 20 lb option is also an additional 5 inches wide.

Chilipad’s New Weighted Blanket Has Heat and Cooling Tech

By | Sleep Industry News, Weighted Blanket | No Comments

chili logoThere’s no doubt that weighted blankets are trendy. They Time magazine called one brand of weighted blanket (the Gravity blanket), “One of Time‘s best inventions of 2018.” And we’re sure there are differences between weighted blankets, besides just the weight, but also that they’re subtle differences. Top mattress brands such as Purple, Nectar, Layla, Helix, and Casper all have weighted blankets now.

The goal: more relaxed and deeper sleep. However, we also see potential health benefits for people who suffer from muscle aches and uses a heating pad to treat pain. Think: cramps, osteoporosis, lower back pain or injuries. Best of all, with the weight. it’s more likely to stay in place. However, a lot of people want the soothing qualities of a weighted blanket but they get uncomfortably hot.

This week chiliPAD announced their own weighted blanket.

chiliBLANKET temperature controlled weighted blanket

Chilipad has something truly unique in weighted blankets. It’s called the ChiliBlanket. Wait, make that ChiliBLANKET. They put their heated and cooled water technology inside a weighted blanket. What does that mean? You get the stress and anxiety relief without the heat (or with it). Hot sleepers of the world rejoice! You can now get the benefits of a weighted blanket without the sweaty, heavy heat of one!

There are many cooling weighted blankets but that usually just means they’re made with a lightweight, cooler fabric. None that we’ve seen actually change the temperature of the blanket though. chiliBLANKET has tubing that connects to the control unit. You can set the temperature and heated or cooled water will coarse through the tubes and subtly warm or it cool down. It has a remote for easier control.

Temperature control means you can sleep deeper because you’re not too hot or cold. Or if you live in Arizona or Florida you can use your heated blanket year round!

You get the anxiety and stress relief from the feeling of calm that a heavier, substantial blanket provides. You can get the weight without the temperature. While the chiliPAD or Ooler go underneath you, the chiliBLANKET goes over you. And you can use it without the plug (features) too – as a regular weighted blanket.

chiliBLANKET comes stand alone or with the chiliPAD cube

chiliBLANKET has two options: it works with your existing chiliPAD or Ooler system or just the chiliPAD box. Here are some of the benefits, according to their website:

  • Hydro-powered, temperature-controlled weighted blanket leads to more restful, restorative sleep
  • Water circulates through a system of tubes inside the blanket for a luxurious sleep experience
  • The hydro-powered design also means the chiliBLANKET is EMF-free
  • The temperature can be adjusted to between 55° and 115°F (13–46°C) to promote deep sleep
  • Glass beads fill the blanket, which provides even weight distribution
  • Removable and machine-washable outer cover
  • Quality fabric offers strength and durability through repeated use and washing

Comes in one color.

chiliBLANKET cost

You will pay for the tech but if it means your health or sleep, it’s worth it for a lot of people. Available stand alone or with the chiliPAD cube – this is what you should buy if you already have a chiliPAD or Ooler system. The cost: $299 or $13.80/month.

chiliBLANKET with chiliPAD system

Or the system which contains both chiliBLANKET and chiliPAD control unit. The price for that is $499 or $23.03/month.

Newton Baby Debuts New Twin Size Mattress Protector and Weighted Blanket

By | Mattress, Weighted Blanket | No Comments

Newton Baby (link goes to our Newton baby mattress review) recently came out with two new products: a Twin Mattress Pad and Weighted Blanket. Up until now the company only carried products for babies and kids. Now, with the the new weighted blanket, they have a product for adults too.

Free shipping and returns on both of these items.

Newton Baby Weighted Blankets – Not for Babies

The weighted blanket requires a minimum weight of 60lbs so it’s designed for adults and older kids. It has a quilted outer cover that is permanently embedded with copper threads. This may be the first weighted blanket we’ve seen with copper. There are wellness benefits of copper and it naturally helps eliminate odor causing bacteria.

Because being a parent can be stressful, the weighted blanket helps calm your nerves and help you fall asleep faster and deeper. The interested part is that Newton Baby addresses not just the calming affects of a weighted blanket but the heat factor. Because they’re heavy, they are usually hot to sleep under.

True to their brand, these weighted blankets are breathable. Made of cotton and embedded with copper since copper is a natural conductor of heat. That helps transfers heat away from the body for a more comfortable temperature.

Comes in an off-white color to match any decor. Free shipping and a 100 night trial means Newton stands behind their products. 2 year limited warranty.

Sizes
The weighted blanket comes in two sizes:
48 x 72 inches (for twin or full size beds)
60 x 80 inches (for queen and king size beds)

Weight
Choose from one of 4 weighs. How do you know what weight to get? It’s based on your weight. Weighted blankets should typically be 7-10% of your body weight to receive the optimal benefits.
