The 4 Best Weighted Blankets Made in the USA

by Dale Cudmore | Updated: Feb 13, 2022

With the recent explosion in popularity of weighted blankets, there are tons of cheap ones being made overseas in countries like China.

They’re typically lower quality, have lower safety standards, and are less likely to be effective weighted blankets for improving sleep and anxiety.

Even though blankets made in the USA cost more, you can be more confident that you’re getting a high quality product that will last a long time.

While there aren’t many weighted blankets produced in the USA, there are some. Of all the weighted blankets I’ve reviewed, here are the top 4 made in the United States.

1. Magic Weighted Blankets

Up until recently, weighted blankets have barely gotten any attention outside of a bit of use for mainly autistic children.

Yet, Magic Weighted Blanketshas been making weighted blankets since 1998, and their products are all made in America.

This is not a company jumping on a fad, they’ve spent decades refining their manufacturing process to create top quality weighted blankets.

They make weighted blankets for both kids and adults, and there are a few things I’d like to highlight:

  • The blankets are machine washable and dryable
  • The blankets come with a lifetime warranty
  • The filling used is hypo-allergenic polypropylene pellets that is 100% BPA-free
  • They come in a variety of colors and sizes

Personally, I think blankets that use glass beads or metal beads as fillings are better quality and more robust, but at least the plastic pellets used in these blankets are BPA-free (not all companies can say that).

In addition, you can pick from a variety of fabrics:

  • Cotton
  • Chenille
  • Flannel
  • Minky (side note: not from the mink animal)

Breathable fabrics like cotton and chenille are best if you’re a hot sleeper, while flannel is good if you want a warmer blanket.

2. Mosaic Weighted Blankets

Mosaic is one of the most sustainable companies that you can buy from. They use repurposed materials in as many aspects of their products as possible.

It’s clearly stated on their website that products are made in the USA:

All products are cut, assembled, and sewn in our Austin, TX facility by our talented cutters, crafters and seamstresses. We place a high priority on quality and all products are inspected in Austin, TX prior to shipping.

They also try to source materials from North America, but do point out that some materials are sourced from international companies. This is pretty typical for most products made in the US.

Mosaic makes weighted blankets for both adults and kids, most are made from cotton, which is generally the most preferred fabric for weighted blankets.

In addition, they sell Coolmax blankets, which combine cotton with a patented fabric that I would assume is made of a synthetic blend. These blankets are supposed to be even cooler at night for hot sleepers.

A few other important things to note:

  • There are several colors and patterns
  • Blankets are filled with BPA-free, hypo-allergenic plastic pellets
  • Blankets are machine washable
  • They feature a 30 day money back guarantee

3. Sommerfly Weighted Blankets

Sommerfly mainly makes weighted blankets, but does make a few other weighted products.

Their goals are clearly stated on their website:

We want to be the leader in the market by making the highest quality products available, made right here in the USA.

One potential pro and con of Summerfly is that they have a limited variety of products to choose from. It’s good if you’re overwhelmed by all the other options.

Their blankets are made with:

  • 100% cotton
  • PET pellets (BPA free plastic)

They come in 5 different sizes and range of weights.

They can be machine washed, but either need to be hung to dry or machine dried on a low heat cycle.

One final note is that Sommerfly also sells duvet covers that you can slip over the weighted blanket to make cleaning easier. These are sold separately.

4. Weighted Blankets Plus

Weighted Blankets Plus sells partially customizable weighted blankets that are made in the US:

We are an American company and are proud to say that every item we sell is made in the USA. It has been like this since day one.

You are able to pick from 4 materials for each side of your weighted blanket:

  • Flannel
  • Fleece
  • Cotton
  • Denim

Depending on which materials you like, and whether you’re a cold or hot sleeper, you should be able to find at least one option you’re happy with.

One less common aspect of their products is that they are weighted with glass beads. These are typically the best filling if you’re worried about weighted blankets making you hot.
