Weighted blankets are having a moment. Traditionally they were used to help people with anxiety, stress, ADHD and autism settle into a restful sleep. More recently, the rest of us have adopted them for their calming, cozy properties – perfect for this time of year when nights become chilly.

But what if you suffer night sweats? Or you just hate being hot at night? Will a weighted blanket be a straight 'no'? Happily there is an answer: you need to shop for a cooling weighted blanket. Yes, they too are a thing. And a good thing. 

What to look for? A weighted blanket made from a cooling fabric. One of our top buys is the Luna, which is made from organic cotton that feels naturally cool on our skin and is breathable. Hence you shouldn't overheat.

What else do we like about it? Unlike many weighted blankets made with plastic beads, this one is made with glass beads. We approve.

Made from 100 per cent organic cotton, the Luna weighted blanket features a 400 thread count and inside are premium grade glass beads that are odorless, hypoallergenic and non-toxic. These beads are woven into the weighted blanket fibers to use DPS (deep pressure stimulation) to calm you down no matter your age, weight or height. Thanks to this pressure, your body's serotonin and melatonin levels can increase to regulate your mood and give an overall sense of calm.

The Luna weighted blanket has been used in hospitals to help anxious patients sleep as well as being studied by accredited institutions such as Harvard, University of Massachusetts and others. 

For those who are skeptical, Luna offers a 100 night free trial, so if you're not happy on the 99th night of sleeping with the weighted blanket, you can send it back and get a full refund.
