Bear Hug + Lullaby = Bearaby
Meet Bearaby: the chic, fan-favorite weighted blanket brand that’s been spotted in the homes of celebrities, The New York Times, and even an episode of the brand new Sex and The City re-boot.
We’ve been buzzing about these sustainable hand-knit blankets for months, so we were thrilled to see Bearaby’s founder, Kathrin Hamm, get some well-deserved recognition as she told the company’s story on The Today Show.
If you’re not familiar with weighted blankets, here’s a crash-course:
- Weighted blankets evoke a sensation called DTP, or “deep touch pressure,” which has been clinically proven to produce hormones that improve mood, lessen stress and anxiety, and promote sleep.
- Most weighted blankets contain plastic beads that shift around and don’t allow for air-flow, which makes them hot and uncomfortable to sleep under.
- This is a problem that Bearaby set out to fix. Their chunky knit blankets are made with responsibly-sourced, breathable fabrics that stay cool all night long and distribute weight evenly (which makes DTP most effective)

Here Today… But Not for Long
When Bearaby first launched in 2018, they sold out in two weeks. Since then, multiple colors and collections have sold out just as quickly, and we anticipate this kind of national exposure will make them even tougher to get ahold of.
If you’re eyeing a certain color, our advice would be to get it while it’s still available — they have a 30 day, hassle-free “try it” policy, so there’s no commitment if you don’t love it (you will though).
With more than 100,000 happy and well-rested customers, Bearaby is well on its way to accomplishing Kathrin’s mission of making revitalizing sleep accessible and drug-free for everyone.
