If you have been considering buying a weighted blanket but are still on the fence, we spotted a highly rated option, with a 100-night trial period, on sale. The Mela is currently £85 (down from £120) and has an average rating of 4.6 stars on Amazon (81 percent of those reviews are five-star).
In part because Mela offers a 100-night trial period and has a U.K.-based support team, more than one buyer has praised the brand’s customer service. Aside from that, this weighted blanket receives the usual plaudits about cosiness and improved sleep. Additionally, customers call out the how-to guide that arrives with the blanket and laud the company for donating a percentage of every sale to charity. While a few customers acknowledge that this blanket is a significant investment, five other reviews specifically say it is worth the money.
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 60 kilograms could use any blanket between 4.2 and 7.2 kilograms.
