Don’t you just love it when you get a great night’s sleep and wake up refreshed, recharged, and ready to face the day? Yeah, me too… but unfortunately, that doesn’t happen too often. No matter how many tricks I try, I not only have a difficult time falling asleep, but also staying asleep. I can’t even recall a night where I haven’t woken up several times before sunrise! Weighted blankets, with all of their anxiety-reducing benefits and calming effects, seemed like a good idea at first, but I sleep hot and didn’t like the prospect of an extra, heavy weight on top of me — until I discovered Saatva’s Organic Weighted Blanket. This luxuriously soft 20-lb. weighted blanket finally has me sleeping peacefully through the night.
Saatva is a much-beloved brand here at Apartment Therapy for its thoughtfully designed, uber-comfy bedding essentials, and this sumptuous blanket is just as well made. The weight provides deep pressure stimulation, which simulates the feeling of a hug. All-natural glass beads are held in place by a diamond quilting to ensure even pressure across the entire blanket — so unlike blankets that are lower quality, there’s no bunching no matter how much you move during the night,
As a hot sleeper, I was a bit worried about adding a heavy blanket to my bed, but since using this Saatva find, I haven’t woken up in a sweat once. Made from Fair Trade Certified organic cotton velvet, it’s super soft and cozy, but not too suffocating for sleeping. I’ve used it over a comforter on chilly nights and as an alternative to my plush (and too hot for transitional weather) comforter.
I tested the blanket in the King/Queen size, but if you’d rather purchase something for relaxing on the couch instead of draping on your bed, Saatva has a smaller 12-pound option that makes a perfect throw. If you’re like me and have trouble getting a quality night’s sleep, the Saatva Organic Weighted Blanket could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Sweet dreams!
