The Best Weighted Blankets in the UK


Many are praising the benefits of their weighted blanket. They have been encouraging you to get one as well, but you’re not quite sure which weighted blanket is best, or perhaps you’re not sure what they actually do.

Weighted blankets are great tools to help with insomnia, chronic pain issues like Fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, relieving stress and anxiety.

But beware, not all are created equal. 

Finding the right weighted blanket can be hard because they come in various weights, sizes, and materials (and only some are completely machine washable). Not to mention many are quite expensive.

Great for daytime naps on the couch or recliner (I use the single one) and night time sleeping (I use the double one).

SleepBo’s #1 Choice £199  £89

1. Therapeutic Weighted Blanket

The koala weighted blanket. On Sale for £79 at the time of this writing.

A lovely, comforting blanket. Makes me feel reassured. Love that it has a silk side and a velvet side which gives me a choice of warm or cool and it also makes my blanket very tactile which adds to the soothing feel. The Koala weighted black is also a very beautiful grey colour and looks really good in my room as well as feels really good.

Angela Roberts, happy kalmkoala customer

The best purchase I've ever made! How I survived before this blanket is beyond me... stress levels melt away every time I put this on. GET ONE! We ended up getting two as my husband kept trying to get under mine.

Tara Moore, a stress-free kalmkoala customer

I purchased a weighted blanket last summer to help with my anxiety. I can say after a year of using it that I don’t ever sleep without it, my nights are more restful, makes me feel better at anxious times and also I find the light pressure of the blanket helps with my period pain. The best money I have ever spent, I cannot recommend highly enough!
