I Finally Found a Weighted Blanket That's Cozy, Relaxing, and Even Stylish

Krista Jones

Relaxing isn't something that comes easy to me. I've always been the type to pack my schedule, overcommit to plans, and spend my weekends running around. After the pandemic hit, it was nice to spend more time at home, but honestly, my anxiety got worse. The stress of 2020 has taken a toll on me for many reasons, but I suddenly found myself looking for ways to de-stress. A lot of people rave about weighted blankets, and I wasn't sure if they were all hype or not. I decided to give one a try anyways. As I shopped for options, I found that none of them appealed to me aesthetically, as someone who takes pride in my home decor. Then I discovered the Bearaby Cotton Napper ($249) and knew it was the one.

The knitted design not only looks cool, but it's actually cooling. Some other options are heavy in fuzzy materials or faux velvet, which sound amazing but can get really hot. This one is made from 95 percent organic cotton, making it a breathable and soft choice. I also like that there isn't an inner layer of beads or sand that makes it weigh a lot. Each one is hand-knit and made with no artificial fillers, and the thick knit is where its weight comes from. Another big selling point for me is that it is machine washable, making owning it hassle-free.

So is it really good? I'm almost shocked to admit that it's totally worth the investment. Not only does it make me comforted, relaxed, and less stressed, but I also love the way it looks in my living room.
