Weighted blankets are the talk of the town and, lately, more and more mattress companies have been getting into the ever-growing market – Casper, Purple, and now Brooklyn Bedding have all released their takes on this therapeutic type of bedding.

In my years reviewing mattresses and bedding, I have been continually impressed by Brooklyn Bedding’s products; the company is a rarity in that they own their own factory and, rather than pocketing those savings, they pass the fantastic deals onto the customer.

In my Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket review, I will be discussing its design, my experience, and who it should be a good fit for – to find out if this weighted blanket is high-quality and a good value, read on!

Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket Video Review

The Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket looks like most weighted blankets, but has some unique aspects to it when you put it to the test. Watch as I explore the features and detail how it might impact your sleeping and napping experience.

The Brooklyn Bedding Might Work For …

  • People who weigh between 130 and 220 lbs. While the Brooklyn Bedding only comes in two weights, 15 lbs and 20 lbs, people who are 130-220 lbs might find the weight they need. The 15 lbs model should work for people on the lighter end of this spectrum and the 20 lb should be a better option for those closer to 200 lbs or a bit over.
  • People looking for a good value. High-quality weighted blankets can run upwards of $300, but the Brooklyn Bedding is only $150 at its heaviest size. It does cost more than some other blankets I have tried, but it is very nice, well made, and more affordable than its higher-end competitors.
  • Those who want something easy to clean. The Brooklyn Bedding comes with a free duvet cover that can be machine washed and dried at home – it is also a very comfortable cover that offers a warm side and a cooling side, giving owners multiple experiences in one blanket.

The Brooklyn Bedding Might Not Work For…

  • Those who want numerous size and weight options. The Brooklyn Bedding only comes in one size and two weights, 15 lbs and 20 lbs – customers who want more weights to choose from or prefer something on the narrower side are going to have to look elsewhere.
  • Much smaller and much larger people. On the one hand, the Brooklyn Bedding 15 lb weighted blanket might be too heavy for lightweight people and children but, on the other, the 20 lb weighted blanket might be too light for people over 220 lbs. Lighter and heavier people might need to try a different blanket to find their desired weight.
  • Hot sleepers. The cool side of the duvet cover features a Tencel fabric that is meant to draw heat away from sleepers, but it did not keep me very cool. While I won’t say I was burning up, I do think there are more effective weighted blankets for hot sleepers out there.

Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket Construction

As I said above, the Dual Therapy Weighted Blanket by Brooklyn Bedding comes in two weights, 15 lbs. and 20 lbs. The blanket is only available in one size, Queen and one color, grey.

Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket - Construction

The blanket itself features a polyester microfiber shell and a gridded design. Within each square, there are glass beads that give the Brooklyn Bedding its weight. Running along the edges of the blanket are 12 duvet tabs that will help secure the Brooklyn Bedding within a duvet cover.

Speaking of duvet covers, the weighted blanket comes with a very nice, comfortable duvet cover. On one side, there is a soft Minky material with puffy dots. On the other, there is a smooth, cooling Tencel fabric.

While the blanket must be spot cleaned, the duvet cover can be taken off the blanket and washed and dried at home.

My Experience

With weighted blankets, I like to start off by discussing weight. The Brooklyn Bedding only comes in 15 lbs and 20 lbs, and I personally find the 20 lb blanket to be too light for me.

Most companies recommend buying a blanket that is close to 10% of one’s body weight. I am around 230 lbs right now, and I usually prefer a 25 lb weighted blanket.

Also, as mentioned above, the Brooklyn Bedding blankets come in a Queen-size. Generally, I prefer a weighted blanket that is throw-sized and made to fit my body. The Brooklyn Bedding is a bit too wide for my taste and I worry it might fall off the side of the mattress.

In regard to weight distribution, the Brooklyn Bedding performs quite well. Lying underneath the Brooklyn Bedding, I feel like the blanket’s weight is evenly distributed across my body.

Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket - Sleeping

I do want to make a note about the blanket’s duvet cover. The soft, Minky side of the blanket has a nice massage quality to it and it feels cozy when I am using that side.

However, the cooling side is not as cooling as I would like. I am feeling myself overheat a bit, even when I am using this cooler side. Some people might have a different experience, but this is how it felt for me.

As a simple weighted blanket, the Brooklyn Bedding did work quite well. Even though I would have liked a heavier weighted blanket, I was getting enough weight so that I had no real trouble falling or staying asleep.

In the end, the Brooklyn Bedding Weighted Blanket is a good option for medium-weight people who want a nice blanket without spending too much money.

Those who are looking for more options and those who are lighter or heavier might need to look elsewhere.

The blanket also comes with a 30-day return policy.


How do I choose the right weight for my Brooklyn Bedding?

Most companies recommend that customers choose a weighted blanket that is 10% of their body weight. So, the 15 lb Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket should be a good fit for people around 150 lbs, and the 20 lb weighted blanket should be better for people close to 200 lbs.

How much does the Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket cost?

The weighted blanket costs $139 for the 15 lb model and $149 for the 20 lb model.

Does the Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket sleep hot?

Even with its Tencel cooling fabric, the Brooklyn Bedding does not sleep too cool – I did feel like I was heating up a bit when I was sleeping under the Brooklyn Bedding.

Does the Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket work?

Yes! The Brooklyn Bedding is a very effective weighted blanket, and I personally slept very well and woke up feeling refreshed when using the Brooklyn Bedding weighted blanket.
