Detailed Silk & Snow Weighted Blanket Review Conclusion

We have been using the 15-lb Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket for a couple of weeks and really enjoy it. It is the perfect, all-natural blanket for lounging. After a few days of using it on the couch while watching TV, our 8-year old claimed it as hers! It was the perfect option for one adult to relax, or to use lengthwise on several children at once. 

But once our daughter decided to give it a try on a hot Florida night (she sleeps incredibly hot…), she never went back. We thought it might be a good option since it is 100% cotton with no synthetics, and known to be breathable, and since the knits are wide and chunky, letting a lot of air in. Now, she refuses to go back to her down duvet and claims that she “no longer needs to stick her leg out of her blanket at night.” She hasn’t even needed to turn the fan on! 

Note that Silk & Snow has an 8-lb weighted blanket specifically designed for kids, which would be safer for a child to sleep with. Our 8-year old is very tall and shows no signs of struggle to remove the blanket from her body, which is the reason why we allowed her to sleep with it. To be safe, I recommend using the 8-lb Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket on children. 

Who Is Silk & Snow?

Silk & Snow is a Canadian mattress and bedding company, established in 2017, by founders obsessed with good nights of sleep, who wanted to create a mattress-in-a-box of higher quality than anything available on the market. 

Several years in, they now produce 2 mattresses, 3 bed frames, duvets, sheets, and amazing pillows

I love that they provide full transparency in where all of the materials, used to make their products, are sourced.  As an example, they highlight the rich heritage of all of the generational family run businesses that are involved in making some of their most popular products such as their mattresses.

What Is Inside The Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket?

The Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket is different than most other weighted blankets. Most are made of a gridded stitched polyester insert enclosing glass pellets. 

The Silk & Snow weighted blanket has none of the synthetics and no glass at all. Instead, it is made of 100% eco-friendly natural cotton, handwoven in a large and chunky knit. 

The organic cotton makes this blanket sustainable. It is health-conscious and avoids the harmful effects of synthetic textile production on our planet, making it good for us and the Earth. 

How Does The Silk & Snow Weighted Blanket Sleep?

Softness

Organic cotton always feels softer than regular cotton to me. It is no different here, and the Silk & Snow weighted blanket feels very soft and luxurious. I could see the quality the second I opened the really cute pouch it came in! 

This weighted blanket cries for you to come snuggle yourself in its weight. You will want it all over you and will have a really hard time coming out of it. 

It is definitely on the top of the softness scale when it comes to weighted blankets.

Temperature

The cotton and large hand knitting style gives the Silk & Snow weighted blanket a very breathable feel. Expect to feel the therapeutic weight on you, without the warming effects of synthetics. 

This weighted blanket is made for the person looking for all of the therapeutic benefits of a handmade blanket, in a very natural way. You will feel a comfortable wave of stress exiting your body nearly instantly and be cooling off and unwinding in a matter of seconds. 

Weight

With no glass pellets in it, the Silk & Snow blanket has a very evenly distributed weight. It feels very comfortable and I would definitely stick to the 10% of body weight rule-of-thumb when picking a weight for your blanket.

How Do I Care For My Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket?

Silk & Snow has designed a weighted blanket that is extremely easy to care for, since made of 100% organic cotton. 

For washing, use your washing machine on the cold cycle and I would recommend washing on its own. Also check that your washing machine can wash a load as heavy as the weighted blanket you are putting in it. 

For drying, either let air dry flat – do not hang the Silk & Snow weighted blanket to dry… you would be damaging the handwoven knits and design. You also have the option of putting it in the dryer, but expect 2 or 3 dryer loads to do the trick!

Ideal Weight For Weighted Blankets

The general rule of thumb for the ideal weight for weighted blankets is 10% of your body weight, plus or minus a couple of pounds.

Let’s look at an example: you weigh 150 lbs and 10% of your body weight is 15 lbs. If you add or remove a couple of pounds, the ideal weight for your weighted blanket would likely be 13 lbs to 17 lbs. 

The other way to think about this is to look at a 15-lb weighted blanket. It would comfortably soothe a person weighing between 130 and 170 pounds. 

Your preference in terms of weight and hugging sensation will impact the ideal weight for your weighted blanket. Most importantly, you need to be able to remove the blanket from your body unassisted.
