Are You a Hot-Sleeper?


Although weighted blankets put an equal weight to your body, most of them do not have a warm-keeping feature. This is mostly determined by the fabric content and the fabric quality used for the weighted blanket. If you are a hot sleeper regardless of the season, this blog post can give you some tips for a better and uninterrupted sleep!

Do You Actually Know What A Weighted Blanket Is?

Until we get into the fine points of a weighted blanket that keeps you comfortable, let's briefly review what a Weighted Blanket is. A Weighted Blanket is a kind of sleep aid that has supported millions of people to sleep well. Weighted Blankets help sleepers in a variety of ways, including reducing anxiety and worry, relieving aches and pains, and assisting with insomnia. The fillings located in the midst of the blankets is the key to the weight. This filling, which is divided into hundreds of pockets, presses to your body to apply a steady weight. This weight simulates the feeling of receiving a gentle squeeze, which causes our bodies to release hormones that make us calm and feel stronger. 

Do Weighted Blankets Cause You To Perspire?

Another often addressed question is, "Are Weighted Blankets hot in the summer?" The discussion about the heat retaining of Weighted Blankets comes from two factors: the sleeper and the performance (quality) of the weighted blanket. Some of them perspire more profusely than others. To the stage that it interferes with having a full night's sleep. If this is already a problem, it is reasonable to ask if there is a breathable weighted blanket on the market with superior air circulation (breathability) qualities.

However, the performance of the Weighted Blanket—from the fabrics used to give the blanket its weight to the outer fabric determines this. Plastic pellets are used in many weighted blankets on the market to lend the blanket its weight. This is a low-cost alternative and an unhealthy option. Plastic, unfortunately, retains a lot of heat. As a result, if you are still sleeping warm, rather than the heat escaping through the Weighted Blanket, it acquires and causes discomfort. As WONAP, we chose the most healthy material for you, which is glass beads. 

The durability and the quality of the outer fabric is the second issue for some Weighted Blankets. Cotton is the most often used material. Which is naturally breathable and should allow heat to easily move through. However, this is dependent on the condition of the cotton. Whether it's made entirely of cotton, it's obviously not doing you any favors.

To lend our blankets their distinct weight, we use micro glass beads. Since glass does not absorb heat from the body, it allows it to flow through the blanket and into the room. The same can be said for the fabric consistency. Our initial Weighted Blanket is made of 100 percent bamboo, so it will suffice for most sleepers to keep them comfortable while enjoying the benefits of a Weighted Blanket.

Weighted Blankets Are Cooler

We launched our line of Cooling Weighted Blankets a few years ago. But what is it about this Weighted Blanket concept that keeps you calm and rested at night?

The key is in the material, which is made of premium bamboo. The blanket is made of 100% Bamboo viscose and feels cold to the touch! Little warmth is preserved inside the blanket due to its superior breathing qualities. This makes it not only a suitable warmer weather Weighted Blanket, but also for those who sleep hot all year! Users will take advantage of sleeping with a Weighted Blanket while staying at a healthy temperature in the night with our most breathable WONAP Weighted Blanket!

Using a Duvet Cover is Another Option for Keeping Cool!

The whole last question we receive is about using one of our Weighted Blanket covers for the Cooling Weighted Blanket. Covers are ideal for adding an additional layer of cover while still personalizing the look of your blanket. Also our duvet covers are made of 100% bamboo material either, bamboo keeps the user cool throughout the year thanks to its temperature standardizing properties.
