Who is Jaymag weighted blanket for?

This wonderfully designed soft blanket is available in 6 different weights which we will talk more about later, and the 7 kg version is the focus of our review, so we will answer this question accordingly. Jaymag weighted blanket 7 kg is for adults who weigh at least 70 kg, and is recommended for those over 80 kg because otherwise it can be too heavy. Preferences are also playing a big role, because someone likes a very heavy blanket.

It is for allergy sufferers and hot sleepers too, because it is highly breathable and made of hypoallergenic materials. It it especially suitable for sleepers who suffer from PTSD, insomnia and anxiety so it has highly valuable therapeutic properties.

Jaymag weighted blanket is one of the best blankets in the UK at the moment and no wonder it ended up in our buyer's guide for the best weighted blanketsSo, let's start this Jaymag weighted blanket review!

What do we use this product for?

Generally, we use it for coping with insomnia, anxiety, depression, restless leg syndrome, PTSD and other similar disorders, and because it promotes sleeping quality. It has a calming effect on our body that will positively affect each of us, even if you are perfectly fine. So, we use it for:

Does Jaymag weighted blanket come in different versions?

Most weighted blanket is available in several different weights, including Jaymag weighted blanket. We have tested all versions for you and in this part of our review we will tell you briefly which version is suitable for which type of customer. Other characteristics like filling type and cover are same for all models.

3.5 kg

This is a model for older children and teenagers, both because of the weight as well as because of the size – 100 cm x 150 cm. Although this model weighs only 3.5 kg, be careful not to use it for children who weigh less than 30 kg since it can be too heavy for them.

5 kg

This blanket's weight is recommended for adults with lower BMI, as well as all those who want to fall asleep faster and sleep better but do not have any of the above-mentioned disorders.

8.5 kg and 9 kg

We talk about these two versions together because the weight is almost identical, so they are suitable for the same type of people. 8.5 and 9 kg are for those who weigh over 85 kg or for those who like a very heavy weighted blanket, to soothe their anxiety symptoms. The only difference is in size. The dimensions of the 8.5 kg version are 135 cm x 200 cm, and the dimensions of 9 kg are 150 cm x 200.

11 kg

The 11 kg version of Jaymag weighted blanket is one of the heavier weighted blankets on the UK market. People who weigh over 95 kg can benefit from it, but be careful with this weight because the average adult will not be able to move it off without assistance, which is potentially dangerous.

Features you should know about Jaymag weighted blanket

We will now focus on each of the most important features individually, to help you better understand if this is the product you are looking for.

Our presenter touching the Jaymag weighted blanket
Premium 100% cotton with high quality stitches

Although the filling is the heart and soul of every weighted blanket, the cover is also very important to keep you cosy so we will start with a 100% cotton cover. Jaymag weighted blanket has two layers of cotton.

Both are made of 100% high-quality cotton. The layer that is closer to you is ultra-soft and that is its primary purpose, while the other cotton layer surrounds glass beads. Both cotton layers are highly breathable so most customers will be able to use this weighted blanket all year round. And it is even suitable for hot sleeper. You will notice high density stiches which is a reflection of great craftsmanship.

Hypoallergenic & non-toxic glass beads

Something must give weight to the weighted blanket, and Jaymag company opted for a premium type of filling and that is filling consisting of glass beads. While many weighted blanket in this price range are filled with plastic pellets since plastic pellets are cheaper alternative, we really like what glass beads used here.

Glass beads are best because they are hypoallergenic and non-toxic, but also because of the weight distribution. Since they are heavier than plastic pellets, they distribute weight better, and also blanket is less bulky.

Deep Pressure Touch stimulation

Since deep pressure touch stimulation, also known by the acronym DTPS, is the reason why weighted blankets were invented at the first place, we need to dedicate a separate paragraph to DTPS and explain to you exactly what it is.  It has probably happened to you at least once that you woke up in the winter covered with a heavy duvet and that you had a feeling of calmness. Scientists have investigated this phenomenon and concluded that firm pressure applied to the body over some period of time time relaxes the nervous system.

Relaxation of the nervous system is achieved by the secretion of serotonin and dopamine. DTPS can also be in the achieved by hugs, massages and other techniques, but none are as effective as a weighted blanket.

High-density sewing for extended durability and even weight distribution

It is very important that the weight is evenly distributed. Glass beads are the best type of filling for this, as we have already said, but it is also very important that the filling is arranged in pockets because only then the pressure can be spread evenly over your body.

Precise computer-programmed stitching and high-density sewing give us 10 cm x 10 cm pockets, each one is small diamond lattice pocket where glass beads are placed. And even if you toss and turn during night, you won’t upset the balance of filling in the weighted blanket. In addition to same weight pressure, this way of stitching and sewing significantly affects the durability of this product, extending its service life.

Reusable vacuum bag

The reusable vacuum bag in which your Jaymag weighted blanket will be delivered to you is a very useful thing. In addition to protecting your new weighted blanket during delivery, you will also have a bag to store it when not in use. Since it is an original bag, it fits perfectly, so it will completely protect your weighted blanket from dust and other dirt when you put it under the bed or somewhere else.

Review of the Jaymag weighted blanket

Jaymag weighted blanket is an affordable weighted blanket available in 6 different weights – 3.5 kg, 5 kg, 7 kg, 8.5 kg, 9 kg and 11 kg. So everyone can find the right weight for themselves according to preferences, as well as body weight as it is advised that the weighted blanket be 7 to 12% of body weight. It is encased in a cotton cover that is very soft and highly breathable, making it suitable for hot sleepers as well.

It is filled with hypoallergenic, non-toxic glass beads that distribute weight evenly as they are placed in 10 cm x 10 cm pockets. Workmanship is at a very high level so this is a durable product that will last you a long time if you take care of it in the right way. It comes in a reusable vacuum bag that you keep so you always have something to store or carry.

Check the alternatives to Jaymag weighted blanket

If you are willing to spend more money on one of the high-end weighted blanket brands, then continue reading this part of our review where we will tell you more about the two alternatives we have singled out – the Emma Hug weighted blanket and the Calming Blanket Adult.

Emma Hug

a product image of Emma Hug Weighted Blanket

The Emma Hug weighted blanket is available in only one weight – 7 kg and one size, which limits the number of potential customers, because there are certainly people who find it too heavy but such people can search other weighted blanket brands. Other than that, this is one really great product made from high quality materials. The breathable cotton layer is great, although this weighted blanket is sometimes too warm for hot sleepers.

Hot sleepers should consider buying Emma Hug weighted blanket luxurious bamboo cover which significantly improves temperature regulation. Silica glass beads are only 1 mm in diameter which makes them smaller than average glass beads, and are housed in pockets due to even weight distribution. You can try it for 200 nights.

Here is our review of the Emma Hug weightet blanket!

Adult Calming Blanket

The Calming Blankets company also offers models for kids, and this is for adults, available in three weights – 4.5 kg, 6.8 kg and 9 kg. The inner blanket holds together eco-friendly glass beads, and the outer shell is made of polyester. Polyester is very soft and comfortable, and in case it is too hot for you, you can buy an additional cotton or bamboo cover. 

It is fully machine washable, but you should wash the inner blanket and outer shell separately. You can be see for yourself the quality of this product as well as its benefit during the 30 days trial period.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

The price-quality ratio is what primarily makes Jaymag weighted blanket better than some other similar ones. Premium filling, high quality cotton cover and craftsmanship are same as with weighted blankets which are twice as expensive as this one. Also, we really like that it is available in large number of different weights so everyone can find the right one for themselves. Addition of reusable vacuum bag is another advantage.

How did we test the product?

a close-up shot of the Jaymag weighted blanket

Free delivery within 3 to 5 working days is included in the price, which is great for customers, because this is a heavy product for which delivery services charge significantly. When ordering, you need to choose the right weight and that's it, since it is only available in one colour.

The first thing after the quality inspection we did is a maintenance test. Since it is machine washable, but the manufacturer advises hand wash, we tested both washing methods. We did not notice any problems or damage after the machine wash, but you should listen to the manufacturer's instructions so that you only wash it occasionally in the machine, otherwise wash it by hand and use a duvet cover to wash it as rarely as possible.

Since we tested all 6 weights, our entire test team was involved in testing this product. In the end, everyone was very pleased with the effects on calming our nervous system, and give high marks for breathability and comfort.


Overall, we'd say that this weighted blanket would fit most people like a charm. As long as you take care to pick out the appropriate weight, you'll be heading to snooze town before long! But what do you think about the Jaymag Weighted Blanket? Feel free to let us know down in the comments.
