Having one of the best weighted blankets can transform your sleep experience in a major way, similar to how the best thin pillow can support a front sleeper.

Due to this, they're scientifically proven to help you sleep better by reducing stress, anxiety and even pain. Although they are one of the best sleep aids when used correctly, they aren't the most affordable items, costing up to £300.
Fortunately, sleep brands like Layla, Luna, and Remy have slashed prices on their infamous weighted blankets this week for Cyber Monday. No need to scour the internet though, our shopping experts and bedding enthusiasts have made your job easier by rounding up a selection of the best weighted blanket sales live right now.

How do you choose a weighted blanket?
When shopping the best weighted blanket sales, there are five things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the right blanket for you...
- Weight: A weighted blanket should be 10% of your body weight. So for instance, if you weigh 68kg/150lbs, aim for a blanket that weighs 6.8kg/15lbs. When it comes to purchasing a weighted blanket for couples, it's best to buy a blanket that's 7.5% of the combined body weight of both adults.
- Size: You can measure a weighted blanket against the size of your mattress. If you sleep on a queen-sized mattress, for example, opt for a weighted blanket that has similar dimensions. It should be large enough to drape over your body without you completely sinking into it.
- Filling: Two of the most common types of weighted blanket fills are plastic poly pellets and glass microbeads - the latter being the more expensive option of the two. You can also find weighted blankets filled with sand, steel shot beads or even rice. Ultimately, it comes down to which feels best against your skin, as all fills have their pros and cons.
- Materials: How do you want the outside of the blanket to feel? Several weighted blankets offer double-sided outer covers that are plush on one side and cool to the touch on the other. If you tend to overheat, definitely seek a blanket with a cotton shell (or another breathable material).
- Trial Period: Some weighted blankets come with risk-free trial periods if you're hesitant to buy one sight unseen. These can be as short as 30 nights or as generous as 200 nights, depending on the brand. It will take some time for your body to adjust to a new weighted blanket so it's a good idea to find one with a trial included.
Are glass beads better than plastic in weighted blankets?
Frankly speaking, the main advantage plastic pellets have over glass beads is cost. Glass is more expensive than plastic, which is why the cheapest weighted blankets tend to be filled with plastic poly pellets - but glass is a higher quality (and more eco-friendly) option.
Glass microbeads are finer and heavier than plastic poly pellets, which means manufacturers won't have to include as much filling. That'll result in a thinner, less bulky blanket, which is a bonus for hot sleepers or anyone who doesn't like being overly swaddled.
Also, plastic beads can make a weighted blanket lumpy and noisy, which may upset anyone with sensory issues. A weighted blanket with micro glass beads is more suitable for such individuals since they lay more evenly and don't make as much noise when rustled.
Bear in mind that plastic and glass are the two most popular fill options - but they're not the only choices available. Natural fillers like sand or rice can be used, but these can be more difficult to maintain over time. Steel shot beads are a viable alternative to glass since they're larger and more durable, but they're also noisier.
Ultimately, much like finding the best pillow or the best mattress for your sleep needs, the filling you choose for your weighted blanket comes down to how much you're willing to spend and your overall comfort level.
