YnM weighted blanket is the most breathable one due to the unique technologies in manufacturing so it boost better temperature control than others. But it may also feel hot for hot sleepers in warm days due to its weight, so a fan or an AC is recommended in summer. In cold days just add a YNM minky quilted duvet cover which can add warmth & snug feeling. 2. If you are tall than 5’5”, you should choose queen or king size weighted blanket with the length over 80” long, or your feet may stick out the weighted blanket . 3. A weighted blanket would small than same size ordinary blanket because it is supposed to cover your body other than your bed. Please be rest assured it is correct size when you see a twin/queen weighted blanket is smaller than anticipated. It is OK when a weighted blanket can’t barely cover the mattress. 4. For the first few nights, you may feel it is too heavy or too light weight. Getting used to a weighted blanket takes about 2-7 days, please bear with the magic weighted blanket a few more days. 5. Please choose separate weighted blankets if body weight varies much between you and your partner(>100lbs difference)

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The weight material in the blanket is non-toxic glass bead technology which is hypoallergenic and odourless. The YnM blanket has specially designed inner pockets that evenly hold the glass beads to distribute the weight equally and gives great conformity when in use.
Made with breathable SMART fabric, this weighted blanket wicks away moisture for the perspiring sleepers.
The outer layer of the blanket is made with less fiberfill, looking to optimize temperature and avoid hot sleeping.
Even bead distribution – a common complaint with many weighted blankets is uneven distribution of beads. YnM use smaller 4”x4” smaller compartments for better distribution of their micro glass beads.
The YNM Blanket has sturdy inside pockets where the all-glass beads are placed. This way you won’t worry about the beads going out of their pockets and clumping together. It provides an evenly distributed deep pressure touch stimulation.
Pocketed construction distributes glass beads
The inner layer is made with 100% cotton, and it is safe for those with sensitive skin or allergies as it’s hypoallergenic and non-toxic.
- Heavy
The blanket is comprised of 100% cotton which is obviously very natural, breathable, and perfect for children with sensitivities/allergies. You can also opt for colors/patterns that come with a soft minky side and cooling bamboo side to work for any season and temperature.
Filled with a 7-layer organic cotton and glass bead system
This blanket is made out of organic cotton. It’s quilted into large squares, which are filled with a wool like material and super tiny glass beads, which is what adds weight to the blanket. Because of the wool, the weight stays distributed very well, probably the best out of all the blankets, comparatively. It doesn’t make much noise when it moves, either.
The outer fabric is 100% cotton. Inside it’s filled with premium glass beads. Verified reviewers say the YnM is a delightful combination of softness plus gentle pressure to help relieve anxiety.
Made of 100% cotton and filled with glass beads, this blanket has a 7-layer system which better contours to the child’s body and provides better temperature control.
The suppleness and comfort the blanket provides can effectively help adults and kids to sleep better. The 7-layer blanket has an anti leakage design with 3-dimension sewing to look the beads securely inside.
YnM used all-natural 100 percent breathable cotton on the outer cover that contacts your body. The cotton is nontoxic, odorless and hypoallergenic. You don’t have to worry if you are hypersensitive to environmental allergens or you have sensitive skin. The cover won’t trigger any adverse reaction.
This blanket also has a quilted design that keeps the glass beads compartmentalized and helps the weight stay evenly distributed as it conforms to the body’s shape.
One of the things I like the most about this blanket is that YnM has surrounded the glass bead pockets with fiberfill. This prevents any noise coming from the blanket when you move around during the night, which is exactly what you would want out of a blanket you sleep with.

What reviewers didn't like

Weighted blankets are also quite bulky, so returning them and having to cover the cost of return shipping can be a right hassle.

A few reviews report leaking beads
The tendency to retain heat may be a source of discomfort especially in summer
Some customers reported leaks within the first few days but were able to take advantage of the manufacturer’s warranty to resolve their issue
