The excellent YnM weighted blanket will keep you comfortable and cool throughout the year.
It is ultra-breathable and keeps heat buildup underneath. It is cool and keeps you warm in summer while keeping you warm in winter.
The only issue we had in our review of the YnM is the lack of a cover.
However, the blanket is much affordable than other weighted blankets, so you don’t have to spend too much on a cover.

Materials & Construction
The YnM blanket has a 7-layer design to help you feel cool and weigh down your body.
They don’t use bamboo or any of the special cooling fabrics. The blanket is mainly made of cotton.
The secret to keeping the blanket cool is to have more glass beads in it and less fiberfill.
The blanket is more huggable and doesn’t feel like it’s in a sauna. The blanket is still breathable, so heat does not build up.
If you suffer from night sweats, the cooling design is beneficial.
Glass beads are entirely silent, non-toxic, and odorless.
They are kept in small compartments measuring 4.7 inches by 4.7 inches. This ensures uniform distribution and prevents blanket weight shifting.
The blanket is sealed with a three-dimensional sewn technique to prevent leakages from one or both compartments.
As we have already mentioned, the YnM weighted blanket does not come with a cover.
Although the blanket is machine washable, it is pretty laborious and has a shorter lifespan. You can then wash the cover and spot-clean the blanket.
Eight loops are included to attach the blanket to a duvet.
Comfort and Weight
There are many weight options for the YnM blanket, ranging from 5lbs to 30-lbs. In addition, they are available in various sizes, from 36 “x48” to 80 “x87”.
A Queen-size is available, measuring 60×80 inches and weighing in at 17, 20, 22, 22, or 25 pounds. Use the “10% of your body weight” rule to determine the perfect weight.
If 10% of your body weight falls between the two available weights, choose the one with more weight.
If you are sharing a bed with your partner, choose one size larger than your bed when choosing a size. The Queen-size size is for one person sleeping on a Queen-sized bed. The Kingsize (80 “x87”) is suitable for two people sharing a Queen-sized bed.
If you have a significant weight difference with your partner, get two smaller blankets for each of you. This will allow you to pick an extra weight for each person.
But what matters most is that they work.
People who use the YnM weighted bedsheet say they fall asleep quicker than ever before, turn less at night (which is a sign of fewer sleep interruptions), and sleep longer.
You will experience improved sleep quality in many other areas, such as productivity, mood, overall health, and general well-being.
People with anxiety or insomnia and those who have trouble falling asleep can use the blanket to help them.
The blanket can help children with anxiety and nightmares. In addition, parents of children with autism spectrum disorders say that the blanket helps them sleep through the night.
