Choosing the right weighted blanket for you can be tricky, and even when you’ve made your choice, it’s still a significant investment. When we scoured Amazon for the best-reviewed weighted blanket, the Buzio was one of the highest-rated options (78 percent of reviewers gave it five stars). It’s currently on sale for £65 (down from £180).
The Buzio is particularly popular with buyers who have sensory-processing issues or sleep disorders. One reviewer explains that, before purchasing the blanket, he had worked his way through a laundry list of products and methods to beat insomnia. Though it’s expensive, he writes, the Buzio blanket improved his sleep to the extent that he’d happily pay twice the price again. Another bonus, this blanket claims to be machine washable and is available in a wider range of weights, including a 2.3kg kids’ blanket.
Note: It’s recommended to choose a weighted blanket that’s around 7 to 12 percent of your body weight. For example, someone who weighs 60kg could use any blanket between 4.2kg and 7.2kg. We’ve listed the price for the 6.8kg (15 lb.) version of the blanket below.
