When you think of gifting, blankets aren’t exactly the first things that come to mind. But somehow, this knitted weighted blanket has been popping up on everyone’s wish lists. The buzz is taking over social media – people all over are raving about Bearaby’s Cotton Napper. So what is it that’s making everyone want one?!

From Sleeplessness to Serenity: Emma’s Story

Emma has been using the Cotton Napper for 4 months and swears she’ll never go without it. “I couldn’t remember the last time I had a good night’s sleep. I was ‘sleeping’, but it was just about 4-5 hours of restlessness.” Emma says.


“If you struggle to fall and stay asleep, you know that it isn’t just a minor inconvenience—it seeps into every aspect of our lives. I often woke up in a groggy daze, feeling as drained as if I’d just run a marathon. Was it morning already? It took a great deal of effort to get up and moving. And at work, my constant exhaustion made it hard not to fall asleep at my desk, let alone stay productive all day. I’m sure my boss noticed, even though he didn’t say anything. Maybe they were talking about me behind closed doors? Thinking about it all just made my anxiety even worse.” recalls Emma.


“I turned to coffee just to get through the day, downing at least 3 cups in the morning and more after lunch to avoid the dreaded crash. When I started considering over-the-counter pills to stay awake, I realized something had to change.”


“It’s almost like the universe was listening (if you believe in that kind of thing). But one particular night while searching for answers, I came across the Bearaby website, more specifically, their Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket. I read the reviews, absorbed every feature and benefit, and ordered immediately. Bearaby offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, so I had nothing to lose.”


“When I say the Cotton Napper blanket is a game-changer, I mean it. That’s not a phrase I toss around lightly. That first night with the weighted blanket was unforgettable. The gentle yet enveloping weight embraced me like a reassuring hug. Every ounce of tension melted away.


What was this new experience? I actually felt tired! The weight of the blanket lulled me into a deep sleep – the best sleep I could remember in years. What’s more, the benefits extended far beyond the night. I now wake up refreshed and ready to face the day. No more afternoon slumps and most importantly, no more quizzical glances from my boss. That gave me the biggest relief of all.”

Thousands Are Raving About the Cotton Napper

Bearaby is taking social media by storm, and rave reviews for the Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket are being posted in droves. From improving sleep to reducing stress, more and more people are switching on (and drifting off) to the benefits of this must-have product. Who would’ve thought a weighted blanket would become the most wanted gift of the year?

Improves Your Sleep

For people who toss and turn all night before finally falling asleep, the calming full-body weight of the Cotton Napper can bring almost instant relief. Sleeping under a weighted blanket induces the powerful therapeutic power of deep touch pressure (DTP). DTP is known to help the body produce more melatonin naturally, enabling users to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

The Cotton Napper also has incredible stress-relieving benefits, backed by science. Weighted blankets are proven to increase the production of serotonin—otherwise known as the “happy” hormone, while simultaneously reducing levels of cortisol—the “stress” hormone. The result is a powerful reduction in anxiety and an enhanced state of relaxation and calm.

Improves Your Mood

It’s no secret that irritability and sleep deprivation go hand in hand. But, rest assured, sleeping under a knitted weighted blanket can help put the spring back in your step. With a better night’s sleep, you can wake up feeling refreshed, and enjoy higher energy levels and a more positive outlook. If lack of sleep is taking its toll on your daytime demeanor, one good night’s sleep under the Cotto Napper could make all the difference.

Keeps You Cool

Where other weighted blankets contain synthetic materials that trap heat and cause sweating, the Cotton Napper is made from cool, breathable, 100% organic cotton that regulates your temperature and keeps you comfortable throughout the night. This blanket is also lovingly hand-knitted in a chunky, open-loop design for maximimum airflow.

Elevates Your Decor

If you want a weighted blanket to improve your ambiance as well as your sleep, the stylish Cotton Napper checks both boxes. Drape it over your sofa for a laid-back chic aesthetic, or spread it over your bed for a layered, warm and cozy appeal. The Cotton Napper is available in variety of colors to match any space, including moonstone grey, evening rose, and cloud white.

My quality of sleep has greatly improved

- Alexandra H.

“I had a different weighted blanket but could only use in the cooler months since it made me sweat. The Napper is so soft, warm yet cool as you sleep, and provides consistent weight coverage. I’ve been amazed at how long and how well I sleep with my Bearaby blanket!!”

- Susan M.

“This is by far one of my favorite purchases I have ever made – a true treat which I now have to fight for nightly as the kitties & my hubby also like it. Needless to say, I have ordered a second one for my hubby…”

“Got this for my daughter. For the longest time she talked about this blanket and I just finally decided to order it. She told me about all the benefits, especially her anxiety, among other things she said this would help with, and she was not wrong. She sleeps better and wakes up feeling well-rested. It’s a game changer and worth it.”
