When you are shopping for a weighted blanket, some companies will offer a few weight and size options. Some companies only offer one size and one option.
While this doesn’t necessarily mean these are bad weighted blankets per se, I personally like a lot of options with my weighted blankets. I want numerous weight and size options to ensure I get exactly what I am looking for.
That’s what Luna Weighted Blankets are all about: options. They offer a wide variety of sizes, weights, and colors.
Still, how is the actual weighted blanket? Did it help me sleep better? Read on for my full review.
You Might Like The Luna If…
- You want options. When it comes to weighted blankets, there is no one right size and weight for everyone. If you decide to try the Luna, you shouldn’t have trouble finding the exact right weight for you. They offer blankets that range from 5 lbs to 25 lbs, and they come in a few sizes as well. They offer a number of duvet covers as well.
- You are a lighter, medium-weight, or heavier person. Whether you need a weighted blanket for a child or a much heavier sleeper, you should find what you need with the Luna. Again, their numerous size and weight options make it possible to find a blanket for all types of sleepers.
- You are a hot sleeper. One of the significant drawbacks of weighted blankets has to do with warmth. With their heavier fill, weighted blankets can make you heat up at night. I did not have this problem with the Luna, however. It is a breathable weighted blanket and even features a Luna’s All Climate Cooling Cotton.
- You are looking for a good value. Some weighted blankets cost upwards of $300. The Luna is priced much more affordably. Even their largest size is priced at around $109. At the same time, the blanket is well-made and seems to feature a high-quality construction. You are getting a very nice weighted blanket for not too much money.
You Might Not Like The Luna If…
- You are larger and prefer a throw-size weighted blanket. If you need a heavier weighted blanket and you also prefer a narrower, throw-size, you won’t be able to find this with the Luna. For instance, I like a 25 lb weighted blanket, but I have to opt for either a Queen or King-size.
- You want great weight concentration. Since you can’t get a narrower, heavy weighted blanket, you might not get the most concentrated weight. I personally like a heavier throw-sized blanket so that I feel a good amount of weight across my body.
- You want excellent weight distribution. While the weight distribution is by no means poor, I have seen better weight distribution in other blankets. The gridded squares are quite large, so I do find the fill is moving around a fair amount, and I am feeling a bit of varying weight across my body.

Construction And Options
So, as I said above, Luna is all about options. First off, you have many weight options to choose from. You can choose: 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 22, or 25 lbs.
You also have a few choices when it comes to size. While you can’t get a 25 lb weighted blanket in a Twin-size, you still have one or two options for each weight. You have: Child, Twin, Full, Queen, and King.
Now, this is rare for a weighted blanket, but you can also choose from four color options. On their website, Luna offers Light Grey, Dark Grey, White, and Grey Striped. On Amazon, you can choose from a few more colors.
If these colors aren’t too your liking, you can also add a Luna duvet cover to your order. The Luna Cover comes in a few other colors as well as in a soft, cozy Minky style. The blanket features eight duvet tabs that help you secure the Luna within the duvet cover.
Now, let’s talk about the blanket itself. The Luna’s shell is made of 100% organic cotton with a 400 thread count. The Luna contains something called All Climate Cooling Cotton. This is meant to wick away moisture and assist with heat dissipation.
The blanket features a standard gridded stitching with the squares measuring 4″ x 4″. The blanket is double stitched to keep the fill in place. In terms of the fill, it consists of very fine, medical-grade glass beads.
According to Luna, you can wash their blanket at home. Just make sure to wash on a gentle cold cycle. They recommend adding towels or blankets to the washer to even out the weight. You can then line dry the Luna.
Like most weighted blanket companies, Luna recommends that you choose a blanket that is around 10% of your body weight. I am 230 lbs, and I like my blankets a bit heavier. I like my blankets a bit heavier, so the 25 lb weighted blanket is perfect for me.
While the 25 lb weighted blanket is indeed heavy enough for me, I am not getting the best weight concentration. This is because the 25 lb weighted blanket comes only in Queen and King. So, the weight is more spread out across my body. It is not necessarily light, but I would like some more concentrated weight. Also, the weight distribution is not fantastic. I am not feeling dead spots, but I do feel some varying weight.
One of the things I like most about the Luna is its cooling nature. With the addition of a cooling fabric, I am not feeling too hot underneath the Luna. I did not wake up sweating as I have done under many other weighted blankets.
The main question is: did it help me sleep better? Well, I can say that it did. I first tried the Luna at work while I was trying to write an article. I found myself nodding off to sleep. Even though I would like some more concentrated weight, the Luna is definitely doing the trick.
The Luna is an impressive weighted blanket with a ton of options. Hot sleepers and people of pretty much any size will find the weight they need with the Luna.
The blanket comes with a 100-night sleep trial, and Luna donates 1% of all proceeds to Mental Health of America.
