Everyone you know is buying a weighted blanket. Why? Because they work! Weighted blankets are scientifically proven to reduce anxiety to help you sleep better. However, there are people that "run hot" and for them, it'd be nice to reap the benefits of weighted blankets without waking up in a pool of sweat. Luckily, there are a few cool-blanket options out there for comfort-seekers who'd like to enjoy weighted blankets without roasting.

If you're a first-time weighted blanket user, Coolmax gives a few tips on making the most of your experience. The company recommends cocooning under the blanket and relaxing your muscles. As you're relaxing, notice how the pressure feels on your body, slowly making your way up from your feet, to your knees, to your torso, to your shoulders.

Coolmax's 15-pound cooling blanket is the ultimate get-sleep-while-staying-cool weighted blanket. The full-size blanket's fabric has a super silky and cool feel to it—think of the flip side of your pillow. The blanket's design is what makes it unique: the fabric transports moisture away from the body to keep you cool and dry for a no-sweat sleep. ALL while giving you every benefit that weighted blankets have to offer.

BlanQuil has another cool-blanket option. The company's weighted blanket weighs in at 15 pounds comes in 5 different colors: Grey, Smokey Grey, Navy, Taupe, and White Frost. Like Coolmax, BlanQuil's weighted blanket is made from quick-dry and breathable fabric so you can stay cool and calm throughout the night and wake up fully rested. This specific blanket is three-quarter size—a smidge smaller than a full-size blanket.

"What makes the weighted blankets from YnM stand out is that they're made from bamboo! The 300 thread count of bamboo viscose feels cool to the touch, but not cold enough to be comfortable to sleep under." I think your proofreader missed the error--should be "uncomfortable."
