Quick Summary

Bearaby is a manufacturer of weighted blankets and comforters. Our review will look at the company’s flagship product, the Classic Napper. This innovative weighted blanket is constructed entirely from chunky organic cotton yarns coated in elastane. The blanket does not have a cover or shell.

Bearaby offers weights of 15, 20, and 25 pounds. Sleepers are urged to use blankets that represent roughly 10 percent of their own body weight, meaning Bearaby’s weight selection should accommodate sleepers who weigh between 150 and 250 pounds.

The Classic Napper offers exceptional breathability due to its open-knit design, which allows air to pass through freely. The organic cotton yarns are also highly durable, giving the blanket a longer-than-average expected lifespan. For added convenience, the blanket can be washed and dried in any household machine.

Read on to learn more about the Classic Napper. This review discusses the blanket’s construction specs, prices and sizes, and overall performance. We’ve also included some similar blanket recommendations and an overview of Bearaby’s shipping and return policies.

As you can see, the Classic Napper has earned favorable ratings in several areas. The open-knit design makes the blanket very breathable and suitable for warm weather, though this also means the blanket may not provide enough insulation when temperatures drop.

The organic cotton yarns are very durable. As a result, the blanket has a longer-than-average expected lifespan. The blanket can also be washed and dried in any household machine, making it easy and inexpensive to clean.

The blanket is offered in a limited weight range. However, most adults between 150 and 250 pounds should be able to find a suitable option.
