And in the other corner (motions to the right) we have the cosy comfort of the kuddly weighted blanket.

Who will win as the best weighted blanket available in the UK?

Read on to find out!

The Cosy Champ: kuddly weighted blanket™ isn’t a stranger to a battle of the blankets, no sir.

Consistently one of our top picks for weighted blankets available in the UK, the kuddly weighted blanket is a cosy force to be reckoned with.

The kuddly blanket weighs in at a comfy 5kg, and is designed with ultra-soft, MicroCool™ fleece to regulate body temperature, providing an optimal sleeping experience. The kuddly weighted blanket is the go-to for a cosy sleep.

Don’t sweat it – the kuddly weighted blanket is also available in a cooling version to further regulate your body temperature using HydroCool™ technology.


While newer than kuddly, the Koala Blanket is not the underdog you may think it is. With a focus on therapeutic and rejuvenating sleep, the Koala blanket helps reduce stress and anxiety. 

Weighing in with three different weights, 4kg, 6.8k, and 9kg, it uses Deep Pressure Touch to simulate the feeling of being hugged, which releases endorphins, or happy hormones, that ease any stress and frustration.

The Koala Blanket is also made with sustainable bamboo, meaning that it is eco-friendly. The bamboo is also a great material since it’s hypoallergenic. You don’t need to feel guilty with kalmkoala™, and you can sleep easy knowing those sinuses won’t be affected!
