How to choose sustainable weighted blankets
Unless your needs require a heavy filling, consider a no-fill weighted blanket. If filler is a requirement, remember that PP plastic beads are less intensive to produce than other materials, but are downcycled in quality while glass and steel are infinitely recyclable. When it comes to the blanket material itself, go for a natural fiber like cotton or wool, and if maintaining wool flannel feels unmanageable, stick with 100% organic cotton flannel. Our favorite weighted blankets are made of GOTS certified 100% organic cotton.
The highest scoring weighted blankets
When it comes to 100% cotton weighted blankets, no ‘stuff’ is needed on the inside. The densities of the yarn and weave pattern give 100% cotton blankets their weight.
