9 Sustainable Weighted Blankets Made With Organic Materials
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
Anxiety, stress, overthinking, tension—there’s a lot going on in the world right now. We get it. For many of us, these overwhelming concerns mean struggling to sleep or getting the rest that our bodies need.
Current medical practices suggest weight can be used to help with this, or more specifically, weighted blankets. Much like deep touch pressure therapy, these weighted blankets encourage the release of serotonin (and its byproduct melatonin), which in turn reduces cortisol levels, leaving us feeling calmer and more content. It’s like a hug for our entire body.
Wrap yourself in these soft, sustainable, and organic weighted blankets for better sleep and relaxation this year. And while revamping your bedtime routine, check out our guides to organic sheets, snuggly & sustainable pajamas, soft comforters, and organic mattresses.

Bearaby is notorious for its soft and chunky weighted blankets. But the blanket we love most in this collection? The cooling Tree Napper—created specifically for hot sleepers. To help you keep calm and cool, this blanket is made with Tencel™ Lyocell derived from eucalyptus tree wood pulp (all in a closed-loop, water-saving process to boot). Our editor’s sleep routine involves both a Bearaby Tree Napper and the brand’s “Cuddler,” which is the longest body pillow we’ve ever laid eyes on. Both are super snuggly, and yet the fabric is never sweaty or sticky. Bearaby also offers kid-, travel-, and queen/king-sized weighted blankets, as well as a velvet one!
