What Is the Best Weighted Blanket for Hot Sleepers?

You’ve probably heard the buzz about weighted blankets. These weighted wonders are uniquely designed to calm your body and mind, allowing you to sink into a deep state of comfort and get a better night’s rest. But if you live in a warm climate or tend to sleep hot, finding the ideal weighted blanket can be tricky. The last thing you want to do is waste your hard-earned money on bedding that makes you feel like you’re sleeping in a sauna.

Thankfully, you don’t need to resort to the one leg in, one leg out method to stay cool under a weighted blanket. From cooling blankets to cotton duvet covers, there are now many options available for those who overheat easily. Read on for more information about how to find your perfect match.

Reasons Why You May Get Hot at Night

If you tend to feel uncomfortably hot and sweaty around bedtime, you’re not alone. Research shows that night sweats, a key characteristic of hot sleepers, may affect up to 41 percent of the population

There are many causes of overheating at night, including underlying medical conditions, eating and exercising too closely to bedtime or simply sleeping with another person or a pet. Hot climates can also raise the temperature of your bedroom, making it difficult to achieve a good night’s rest.

One of the biggest culprits of hot sleep, however, may be your choice of bedding. It’s no secret that thicker, heavier blankets trap heat — that’s why they’re perfect for winter. But in the summertime, this feature can make them unbearably hot.

As we wind down for bed, our core temperature drops by a few degrees, and this excess heat can be absorbed by our bedding. If your bedding isn’t breathable, the heat becomes trapped, making you feel unbearably hot and sweaty.

As a hot sleeper, you may be worried that sleeping underneath a weighted blanket will make you sweat like Niagara Falls. After all, thicker and heavier blankets are known to trap body heat.

Fortunately, this shouldn’t be a concern as long as you choose the right weighted blanket for your needs. Here at Gravity Blankets, we have several bedding options for hot sleepers, including our top-rated cooling weighted blanket

What makes our cooling weighted blanket the best choice for hot sleepers? For starters, it’s made from 100 percent cotton, a fabric known for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties.

Additionally, our cooling weighted blanket contains premium glass beads — not plastic. Plastic isn’t a good choice for hot sleepers since it retains heat, making the user feel hotter than they normally are.

Glass beads, on the other hand, are the perfect filler for hot sleepers because they help keep you calm and cool. And, due to their tiny size and weight, they can be packed more densely into each square. This helps distribute the weight more evenly across the body and makes the blanket thinner compared to bulkier fillings.

Dealing with Occasional Night Sweats? Try a Cotton Weighted Blanket for Year-Round Comfort

Do you only sleep hot in the summertime? In that case, you might want to consider choosing a weighted blanket that’s better suited for year-round use, like a cotton weighted blanket

Cotton is one of the most popular fabrics for weighted blankets, and for good reason. It’s super breathable, comfortable and helps in controlling body temperature. It’s also easy to wash, which is why it’s particularly beneficial as a duvet cover for a weighted blanket.

If you’re trying to beat the summer heat, a removable cotton duvet could be the best way to go. When the mercury starts to drop, you can simply swap it out for a flannel duvet cover or something equally cozy.
