Weight
Weight is the most important aspect of a weighted blanket. The best weighted blankets have well-distributed quilted pockets and offer a variety of weights depending on your size.
Material
Material refers to what the blanket is made of, with some common options being cotton, microfibre, or bamboo. The choice of material affects the feel, comfort, and breathability of the blanket.
Filling
Filling refers to what is placed inside the quilted pockets, these include beads, glass pearls, plastic pellets, or flaxseeds. This affects the distribution of the weight and the level of comfort provided.
Cover
A removable, washable cover allows you to easily keep your blanket clean.
