Quick Summary

Founded in 2016 by Johannes Sauer, Yaasa Studios is a Santa Barbara, California-based company that produces mattresses, furniture, and bedding. Yaasa sells three specialty blankets: the Celliant- and seaweed-infused Elements Blanket; the Infinity Blanket, which is made with Celliant and organic cotton; and the Weighted Blanket.

Weighted blankets rely on deep touch therapy (DTT) principles to promote sleep, reduce anxiety, and increase the production of sleep-enhancing hormones like melatonin and serotonin. Customers and professionals have praised weighted blankets for their ability to provide drug-free relaxation and improve sleep quality. Weighted blankets may also benefit individuals with conditions such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and depression.

Most weighted blankets consist of multiple layers, including a soft fabric cover and an inner filling made from glass or plastic pellets to give the blanket its characteristic weight. While Yaasa’s weighted blanket features a soft, 100% cotton cover, its filling differs from many other brands, swapping heavy pellets or beads for polypropylene fibers. The resulting product is cooler and more breathable than traditional options, making it an ideal choice for individuals who tend to sleep hot.

Available in cream and grey, the Yaasa weighted blanket also looks different from many others on the market, more closely resembling a traditional knitted afghan or blanket. Customers can choose from two sizes: a 15-pound blanket, which measures 72 x 40 inches, and a 20-pound option measuring 72 x 45 inches.

Warmth

Due to its unique, knitted design, this blanket allows more airflow than most weighted blankets. The synthetic filling does trap some heat, but those who tend to sleep cold may wish to use another blanket in addition to this one.

Breathability

The open structure of this blanket and the cotton used for its outer shell combine to make for a very breathable weighted blanket. However, the synthetic fill material does retain enough heat for a cozy feel.

The Yaasa weighted blanket’s greatest strength is its unique construction, which offers warmth and comfort without becoming overly hot or oppressive. Customers also praised the sturdy cotton outer shell for its durability as well as its breathability and cooling properties. While some cold sleepers preferred to pair the weighted blanket with another quilt or blanket, most appreciated the blanket’s breathability.

Many owners wished that the blanket was available in more than two weight variations, with current options best suiting individuals who fall into a rather narrow size range. Some customers were also dissatisfied with the blanket’s care instructions. Unlike many similar items on the market, Yaasa’s weighted blanket is dry clean only, making it more difficult and expensive to launder.
