Sustainable Comfort: Organic Cotton Weighted Blanket
Made from natural undyed cotton, this weighted blanket is the perfect choice for finding peace and a deeper sleep. The light weight creates a deep, barely perceptible pressure that can have a positive effect on the nervous system and help fight stress. Organic cotton is not only safe for your skin and the environment, but also ensures an optimal temperature during sleep. It is not an exception that when using a weighted blanket, it is possible to fall asleep more easily, maintain a stable sleep cycle and alleviate sleep disorders.
Why NOXNOX® weighted blanket?
Soft pressure that helps you feel calm is created by extremely small glass beads embedded in the material. They are evenly distributed, completely imperceptible, and silent. The glass beads are made from certified, nature-friendly, and human body-safe materials.
This NOXNOX® weighted blanket has the standard weight of our classic heavy blanket - 6.8kg. The advantage of this product is its versatility. Can be used both as a blanket and as a heavy blanket for sleeping.
This weighted blanket is made from organic, natural cotton. A great choice for both young and old who like nature. The mixture of gray and white shades will also fit well in a modern interior.
At NOXNOX, we care about sustainability and practicality. That’s why our weighted blankets are not only designed to provide comfort and relaxation, but also come packaged in 100% cotton bags that can be repurposed for storing bedding, clothes, or anything else you need to keep organized.
It depends on the type of weighted blanket and cover. We sell several different types of weighted blankets and covers. If you choose a weighted blanket with a sherpa or minky material cover, you will definitely not be cold in the winter. There is also a special weighted blanket called the “Space” blanket that is designed specifically for the winter. All NOXNOX weighted blankets have 7 layers instead of the usual 5, which also contributes to higher heat retention.
The blanket should be about 10%-15% of your body weight. There are no strict rules, and you can choose a weight that feels comfortable for you. Our standard weighted blanket sizes are: 150x200cm, 220x200cm, and 100x150cm (for children).
We do not recommend washing a weighted blanket at home, but you can wash the duvet cover. This is only a recommendation, as some customers have successfully washed their weighted blankets at home, depending on the size of the washing machine drum and the allowed weight. The easiest way is to take the weighted blanket to a professional cleaning and laundry service, where they use specialized machines.
The frequency of washing a weighted blanket depends on how intensively you use it, and whether you use a duvet cover. If you use a duvet cover, the cleaning intervals will be longer. We recommend washing a weighted blanket at a professional laundry service.
Do not dry clean. Do not use bleach. Do not iron. A weighted blanket up to 5kg can be washed in a washing machine using a gentle cycle. A weighted blanket above 5kg should be washed at a professional laundry service.
The care of a weighted blanket cover depends on the type of cover you have. In our online store, you can find covers made of cotton, bamboo fiber, velvet, and minky fabric.
Definitely not, the glass beads that provide the weight to the blanket are sewn into the blanket in a way that they remain invisible and unheard. They are evenly distributed throughout the blanket, so there is no need to worry about them falling to one side.
Yes, NoxNox blankets are made of durable materials, so this investment in better sleep will last you a long time.
There have been isolated cases where using an overly heavy blanket resulted in mild tingling in the legs or arms after a night’s sleep. These cases are highly individualized and may be caused by an individual’s sensitivity, where the same blanket may be too light for one person and too heavy for another. However, it’s important to remember that it’s possible you were just sleeping deeply 🙂 And as we know, deep sleep is essential for the body.
We recommend consulting with your doctor. It’s difficult to give a definitive answer, as it may depend on the weight of the blanket and the stage of pregnancy you’re in.
