How heavy should a weighted blanket be? Each blanket tested weighed around 7kg and was used by at least three different people for three or more nights' sleep, as well as when unwinding on the sofa. Usually ranging from between 4.5kg to 11.5kg, a good rule of thumb is to select a blanket that is about 10% of your bodyweight. Though you can opt for a heavier or lighter throw, depending on personal preference.

But it’s worth noting that this is the case for most weighted blanket covers.

Lastly, cost will inevitably come into your decision making process. Some weighted blankets have very high RRPs but we regularly see them discounted, so if there’s a pricey one that takes your fancy, it’s always worth a look to see if it’s on sale.
