The Advantages of a Cool Weighted Blanket

sleeping in a weighted blanket

A comforting and soothing hug - that is what a weighted blanket aims to offer you. When wrapped around one’s body, the weighted blanket should promote a calming feeling of relaxation and enjoyment. 

Theoretically and scientifically, when the weight of the blanket touches the body, it triggers changes in the nervous system that are beneficial for the physical and mental state of the person and can also alleviate symptoms of stress and certain ailments. 

In practice, the additional weight of the comforter may increase the body’s temperature and result in high heat under the heavy cover. Many hot sleepers and people that face sleeping difficulties find the heat triggering and uncomfortable.

But heavy doesn’t necessarily mean hot. With the right materials, a weighted blanket will remain cool. Taking that into consideration, the calming effect is usually associated with a cooler temperature. As we all enjoy how the cool side of the pillow feels on the skin, it is recommended to choose a weighted blanket that stays cool.

How Can a Weighted Blanket Keep You Cool During the Night

The key factor that defines if a weighted blanket is cool or not, are the materials that are used in the manufacturing process. 

Baloo Living weighted blankets are manufactured using 100% cotton materials. Cotton is the best choice when it comes to fabrics used for covers, as it is naturally breathable. Cotton does not prevent the airflow that is essential for regulating the temperature and naturally eliminates moisture, which helps the thermoregulation. Moreover, the blanket will maintain the perfect, moderate temperature of the body and prevent it from sweating during the night. 

Besides the importance of the skin-touching material, there is another important factor that keeps the Baloo weighted blanket cool. It is the inner filling of the blanket that provides the additional weight by using glass-made microbeads. Glass microbeads are proven to stay cooler than the plastic-made ones.
