Best Weighted Blankets Canada: Gravid’s Clear Win!

With so many weighted blanket products out there, we know it’s somewhat of a tall order to be the best. As far as other weighted blanket producers go, we have no problem with a bit of competition - purely because we’re convinced that what we’ve designed is Canada’s superior answer to weighted blankets. 

For us it’s not so much about accolades but rather that our customer base (66,000+ and counting) have agreed with this assessment. So what makes Gravid products outstanding?

Stick around for 5 minutes and find out - especially if you’re in the market for a weighted blanket. You’ll want to know the ins and outs of why our weighted blankets and accessories are something you can invest in. 

Your partner for a good night’s sleep

Not sleeping is awful. In fact, it’s downright miserable. That’s why we’ve made it our business to help sufferers of sleep disorders with their problems in a way that doesn’t require medication. We’ve spent time designing and developing unique sleep aids that are backed by scientific studies and have had their efficacy proven over time. 

Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation (DTPS)

We’ve put some real thought into the design and construction of our weighted blankets to harness the effect of a therapy called deep touch pressure stimulation. Previously employed by occupational therapists as a way to soothe and treat anxiety disorders, this therapy provides gentle pressure due to micro glass beads sewn into double-stitched pockets, making up an inner weighted blanket. What does it feel like? Like a hug. 

There’s a small secret to using this therapy for maximum effect. The entire blanket is designed to provide an even weight distribution across your body weight and provide the feeling of a hug. Warm, soft and comforting. That’s the feeling we went for. 

Other weighted blankets may add weight, but they also have some construction problems because they do not necessarily use pockets to hold the inner material of the blanket. For instance, many blankets have poly plastic pellets, micro steel balls or sand to weigh them down, but these materials move around too much, causing the blanket to ‘bunch’ and become heavy on one side or the other. This is not only uncomfortable as you have to keep pulling the blanket when it slides off the bed, but it also doesn’t provide the gentle pressure that qualifies as DTPS.

A blanket to suit everyone’s tastes

Most weighted blankets are a ‘one size fits all’ kind of deal. But we’ve gone one step further based on scientific research and human habits and have designed three different types of outer covers to remedy specific problems or accommodate individual preferences. 

Breeze™ Cooling Weighted Blanket

This blanket is for hot sleepers, people who prefer a light, breathable fabric and people who suffer from certain disorders such as restless leg syndrome and circulation or respiratory disorders. 

Made from a natural fabric called TENCEL™ Lyocell, derived from the eucalyptus plant, it is stronger than bamboo. But it also has very effective cooling properties and is hypoallergenic. Sleeping under this blanket will keep you cool while still providing the gentle pressure that gives a weighted blanket its effect. But don’t just take our word for it; hear from our customers.

“My new Gravid weighted blanket: I had lots of trouble with restless legs. I have no more problems with my legs and it just feels like a really nice hug. You're all cozy and tucked in. I've also got the cooling sheet on it... helps stop the night sweats! If you're thinking about getting one, you should definitely get it. They are awesome!” - Penny (verified purchase)

Yes! Sounds good. I want to purchase one now. 

Many weighted blankets are made from cotton or bamboo, which are also natural fabrics with cooling properties but do not possess the same effectiveness as TENCEL™ Lyocell. This natural fiber is thermoregulating which means it maintains the right temperature for your body and ensures you don’t overheat. 

This powerful combination of an inner weighted blanket combined with a cooling outer cover has provided many sufferers with exactly the right remedy, giving them restful sleep and relieving their stress and anxiety. They stay asleep longer and feel more refreshed when they wake up. 

Sleep disturbances are a thing of the past with this blanket.   

Breeze™ Cooling Sheets and Pillowcase Set

Cooling Sheets and Pillowcase Set

If you’re on team ‘cool,’ we suggest you try our cooling sheets and pillowcase set. You may as well go the whole way. 

Here’s a fun fact that you may like about our sheets. They’re infused with silver which prevents up to 99.7% of bacteria growth and maintains the perfect temperature for your comfort throughout the night. You can purchase these sets in snow white or classic grey and they come in three sizes (Twin, Full, King). 


UltraPlush Weighted Blanket

UltraPlush Weighted Blanket

An alternative to the cooling weighted blanket, the UltraPlush is a soft and plush microfiber blanket. It has the same inner weighted blanket but now has the option of using an outer microfiber cover. 

Our customers like this blanket because it has an ultra luxurious feel, and combined with the weight of the inner blanket, provides a soothing sleep experience. They report falling asleep faster and staying asleep for longer. The inner blanket is filled with glass beads that double-stitched into pockets. These pockets are some of the smallest on the market and aid heavily in the even distribution of the glass beads across the blanket. This is important to give the feeling of a hug across your body and not just in one area. 

Super! I’d like to buy a Gravid UltraPlush blanket now.

Superior Zipper Technology

Both these premium blankets have a sturdy zipper. In fact, Gravid is the ONLY weighted blanket with ZipperTech™ for a guaranteed no-sag experience. The durable zipper goes all the way around the perimeter for weight that is always perfectly distributed.

Most weighted blankets use 6-8 fabric ties to hold the weight in place and are prone to breaking. The result? A lumpy, clumpy blanket.

Machine washable

Unlike other traditional weighted blankets, our version can be machine washed. All that is required is a gentle detergent and wash cycle and your blanket will be good as new. Minor spills can be wiped up easily with a damp cloth since TENCEL™ Lyocell does not rapidly absorb liquids. Our Gravid blankets are really no mess, no fuss!

15lb Chunky Knit Weighted Blanket

Despite Gravid’s tiny glass beads being non-toxic, you might have an aversion to the feel of the beads (this is normally found with sufferers of sensory disorders), or you may have beloved furry friends who like to chew on things. Even if this isn’t the case, you may just like the idea of a chunky knit blanket. That’s perfect, and we have something for you too. 

Our Chunky Knit Weighted Blanket weighs only 15 lbs and is skillfully woven to ensure the weight is evenly distributed for maximum effect and comfort. Adding artisanal charm to your space, it's a perfect blend of elegance and soothing functionality.

What does it feel like?

Imagine a bean bag's fluffy comfort with a hug's gentle weight – pure, cozy bliss. The evenly distributed weight creates a comforting pressure reminiscent of a loving embrace that melts away stress and brings a sense of security. Ideal for those chilly nights or when you need an extra touch of comfort, our chunky blanket is a haven where coziness meets luxury.

Unique construction

The best weighted blanket in its class, our blanket is wrapped in our famously plush microfiber, renowned for its velvety softness and gentle touch against the skin. Inside, the chunky blanket is filled with a stretchy, resilient yarn made from premium-grade polyester. This stretchy yarn is the secret to the blanket's comforting weight and sumptuous feel.

You can take a confident step towards purchasing our Chunky Knit Weighted Blanket, but if you feel you need a bit of nudge, here it is:

“20/10 recommend!! This is the best weighted blanket I’ve ever tried! Most weighted blankets I’ve tried make me feel like I’m roasting in an oven, but not this one. I love how heavy it is and cool in temperature, making it great for all seasons! I work night shift and I’ve noticed a higher quality of sleep since I started using this blanket. The knitted design allows for the weight to be evenly distributed and doesn’t bunch to one side like other weighted blankets I’ve used. It is incredible soft and aesthetically pleasing as well. Also it comes with a bag to pack it in, which is a huge plus considering I travel around a lot.” - Giovanni (verified purchase)

I like this idea. I want one too!

Are you having fun yet? Isn’t it exciting to know that you can purchase natural sleep aids to soothe your insomnia, anxiety, restlessness and sleep disturbances and make the whole experience uniquely yours by mixing and matching blankets and accessories? 

But wait, we’re not done. The best is yet to come. Next we take a look at new and innovative products that really boost your sleeping experience. 

DOZE AirGel™ Mattress Topper

AirGel Mattress Topper

Sleep on a cloud with DOZE AirGel™ Mattress Topper. You can officially ditch the memory foam heat trap and go with our revolutionary AirGel™ technology that adapts to your body's contours, offering a perfect blend of support and comfort. 

“I switched to the Doze topper from a memory foam topper i got off Amazon that was making me sweat at night. Truly didn’t realize what I was missing out on. Doze has this nice balance between softness and support which my old memory foam topper didn’t provide. It doesn’t trap heat, which is a big plus for me. I’m sleeping better and waking up without the usual stiff back. Totally worth the investment!” Mateo (verified purchase)

Doze is both firm and soft, relieving pressure points under your shoulders and hips yet remaining supportive of your back and legs.
