In the photo above, I’m using the 18 lb Luxome weighted blanket with a double-sided cover. This version has smooth minky on the top and bamboo lyocell on the reverse.


The Luxome weighted blanket is robustly designed, with high-quality materials and even weight distribution that hugs your body well.

The company calculated a comfortable weight per square foot across all their blankets, so you can conveniently choose one based on your bed size rather than a percentage of your own body weight.

The double-sided minky and bamboo cover feels soft on the skin and looks elegant. Although there are some cover options that have a cooler feel, hot sleepers may find it a bit too warm.


  • Robust stitching and secure microbead pockets.
  • Machine washable, both blanket and cover.
  • Multiple removable and integrated cover options.
  • Stylish design, with a luxurious cover.
  • User-tested average weight per square foot.
  • Strong loops and ties for secure cover attachment.


  • Only a 30-day return period, no extended warranty.
  • Cover can be tricky to reattach after washing.
  • May be too warm for hot sleepers or summer use.

Who makes the Luxome weighted blanket?

The Luxome brand has its own website (, which is always a good start in a world where many products are sold on sites like Amazon with no independent website of their own.

In an interesting interview on in 2022, the founder of Luxome, Hyaat Chaudhary, spoke about creating a luxury lifestyle brand. And the About page on the Luxome website highlights how they offer luxury products at affordable prices.

Here’s a quote from them:

Each one of our products is made from the finest fabrics and materials. By selling directly to you, we’re able to bring more comfort to your world through premium products at affordable prices.

To see if it really is a premium product, let’s take a look at the design and the materials.


There are two main styles of Luxome weighted blankets to choose from: a removable cover version and an integrated cover version. Both of those options are available in multiple sizes, with a range of cover styles.

I decided to get one with a removable cover. So my experience for this Luxome weighted blanket review is based on the large 18 lbs blanket with a grey bamboo and minky cover.

I personally like having the flexibility to remove a weighted blanket’s cover in the summer months, stripping away some of the warmer fabric. It also means you can switch the cover in the future if you want to change how it looks or feels.

Interestingly, Luxome chose not to offer each size in multiple weights, as some companies do. They say that the standard advice to choose a weighted blanket that’s close to 10% of your body size isn’t based on science.

Instead, they tested a range of weights with people of different ages and body sizes to discover an average weight per square foot that most people find comfortable. I’ll talk more about that in the weight options section below.

This quote from their website explains the concept:

Buying a weighted blanket based on a percent of your body weight isn’t accurate since it doesn’t take into account the size of the blanket. We did extensive user testing and optimized all of our blankets to an ideal weight per square foot that nearly everyone agreed on, so simply select a size that works best and rest assured, it will be the perfect weight.

The internal weighted blanket and fill

In the photo below, you can see that the square pockets that contain the microbeads measure 6 x 6 inches.

Weighted blankets often look appealing in photos when they have a soft minky cover on. What matters more to me though is that the inner blanket is well designed and robustly constructed. That means quality materials, strong stitching, and small pockets to stop the beads from bunching up unevenly.

The Luxome weighted blanket certainly feels solidly constructed. The 233 thread count cotton cover that holds the glass microbeads in place isn’t the softest cotton, but it does appear to be robust. As it has a soft exterior duvet cover anyway, I don’t mind it being made of thick cotton if it means it will last longer.

The pocket size isn’t the smallest I’ve seen, each measuring roughly six by six inches. The Baloo and the Weighted Evolution, for example, have smaller pockets and are double stitched to add extra resilience.

Having said that, six inch pockets is by no means unusually large in the weighted blanket world, and they still create even enough weight distribution when you lie under it. I probably would have liked to see double-stitched sections around each pocket, but the stitching does appear to be strong, which is key to the longevity of a weighted blanket.

Each pocket contains quite a substantial amount of fiberfill. The result is that the thousands of glass microbeads are well spread, which I really liked when using the Luxome as it means less bunching. The polyester fill also means it’s thicker than many other weighted blankets I’ve tried, which affects how breathable it is.

Overall, I felt that the main part of the weighted blanket didn’t look or feel particularly special, so I probably wouldn’t use it without the cover in my home. Having said that, it’s robustly designed and has good weight distribution throughout the pockets.


In the photo below, I’ve folded the blanket so you can see the minky side on the top half of the photo and the bamboo side on the bottom half.

My slight disappointment with the way the internal blanket looks and feels was compensated for with the high-quality cover. This is an experience I’ve had with many other weighted blankets, such as the YnM, Quility, and Cosi Home.

To start with, I liked that there are12 loops and ties to attach the cover to the blanket. Some brands only have eight ties, even for large sizes, and you really notice the difference in how well it holds the shape.

One small issue I found is that the loops are quite narrow, so it was a bit fiddly to reattach the cover after I’d removed it for washing.

I’m not sure why exactly, but the inner section of the Luxome was kept very tight inside the cover, giving it a uniform look when arranged on the bed. I found I can move it around the house, and it always stays neatly in place inside the cover.

It might seem like a minor point, but if a weighted blanket shifts around too much inside the cover, it bunches up more and looks untidy. So this is a big plus for the Luxome’s design.

The zip is very small and nicely hidden inside the cover. So much so, that I couldn’t find it at first. Another plus point for the cover.

In the photo below you can see the subtle zip – so subtle that I felt the need to add an arrow!

As for the material of the cover, I really liked how smooth and soft both sides are. The minky side looks velvety, and feels gentle on the skin. Minky is sometimes too fluffy for my liking, so I liked the flatter surface of the Luxome cover.

The 300 thread count organic lyocell bamboo side feels silky and soft to touch. They say it’s cooler than the minky, which I found was true when you touch each side, even if it doesn’t impact much on the overall breathability.

Overall, I loved the Luxome weighted blanket cover, which makes up for the fact that the internal section has a more basic feel. With the cover on, it looks stylish and elegant, and it feels comfortable. So I think this is a good choice of weighted blanket for people who prefer their bedding to look elegant rather than brightly colored and fluffy.

Weight and size options

The Luxome weighted blanket is available in four set sizes, from small to extra large, which you can see in the table below. As I mentioned before, they don’t offer each size in different weights, as some companies do.

SizeWeightDimensionsRecommended for
Small8 lb42″ x 56″Kids or lap use
Medium15 lb54″ x 72″Full beds, throw,
smaller adults
Large18 lb60″ x 80″Full bed, queen bed,
most adults
X Large25 lb90″ x 80″Queen or king,

With the Luxome weighted blanket, you only need to decide which size you’d like in terms of length and width. Then you’ll have to wait and see if the average weight per square foot that Luxome calculated will feel comfortable to you.

You may be able to judge this in advance if you’ve tried a similar sized weighted blanket before. Otherwise, you’ll have to try it and get a refund if it’s not right for you.

I have the 18 lb large size, which both my partner and I find comfortable despite the fact that there is over 20 lb difference in our own weights. In my experience of trying multiple styles and weights, I usually find any blanket between 15 lb and 25 lb works fine for me.

Maybe some people will be more sensitive to the exact weight, but I seem to be able to enjoy a wider range of weights than those that are exactly 10% of my own body weight.

How breathable is the Luxome weighted blanket?

I know from experience that very warm bedding usually isn’t ideal in the summer. Even in cooler months of the year, I’m not a fan of feeling too hot in bed.

Weighted blanket manufacturers know this is an important point for many people. The result is weighted blanket descriptions including words like ‘breathable’ or even ‘cooling’.

Personally, I don’t think a weighted blanket that actually cools you exists. So it’s all about cutting through the marketing hype and analyzing how breathable the materials and design are.

Luxome describes the weighted blanket I have as “Scientifically designed to help you sleep better without overheating.”

I found that, while not the worst, the Luxome weighted blanket I have isn’t the most breathable I’ve tried. For example, the Bearaby, Baloo, and Slumber Cloud are all much more breathable.

To be fair, there are other brands that feel even warmer and are less breathable, such as the Gravity Blanket and the Quility. At the end of the day though, this is a thick weighted blanket and you will feel some heat build up over the night. That’s lovely in the winter. But here in New York, mine lives in the cupboard in the summer.

How good is it for relaxing on the sofa?

In theory, all the weighted blankets I’ve tried are good to use on the sofa while relaxing, reading, or watching television, etc. The difference usually lies in whether it’s an item you’d actually want to have on the sofa.

The Luxome looks stylish with the cover on, so I’m happy to have it out on the sofa when I’m using it. The cover I have feels pleasant to touch, which is also a point to keep in mind if you’re awake and aware of the texture.

If you have a large or extra large size, you might find it’s a little big for the sofa and perhaps better for the bedroom though.

How good is the Luxome weighted blanket for sleep?

Whether the Luxome weighted blanket will help you relax or sleep better is going to be a personal matter. So please bear in mind that even though I can tell you my view, you might have a different experience with the blanket.

First of all, the basic concept of a weighted blanket needs to work for you. After that, it’s down to how much you like the look and feel of the Luxome, and how much you mind the extra warmth it will bring.

It looks elegant in the bedroom (with the cover on), so that’s a good start. I think it’s a solid choice for cooler months of the year, but only in the summer if you’re a cool sleeper naturally or if you sleep with air conditioning. Otherwise, I suspect you may find it too warm.

Personally, I find the weight does help me relax at night and I like weighted blankets in general. So I think it has as good a chance as any weighted blanket when it comes to helping with issues around anxiety, stress, and sleep. But just to reiterate, this is a personal thing and not everyone responds the same way to weighted blankets.


The Luxome is one of the more convenient weighted blankets to care for as both the cover and internal blanket can be machine washed.

You do need to be careful to only use a cold wash cycle, don’t use softener, and make sure you tumble dry on a low setting.

I’ve washed mine three times and it came out in good condition – unnoticeable from how it went in (apart from smelling a little sweeter maybe!)

The exchange and returns window is 30 days. That should give you ample time to decide if you like the Luxome weighted blanket, or if you think a different size or cover style would be better.

There’s no extended warranty though. So once your 30 days are up, try to remember to check the settings when you wash it, and don’t let pets with sharp claws anywhere near it!

I’ve had mine for a couple of years now, and it’s still in great shape, so I know it should last at least that long.


The price of the Luxome weighted blankets varies according to the style, cover and size you choose.

Rather than listing every variation, let’s take a look at a couple of examples. These prices were accurate when I last updated this article – January 26, 2024.

Removable cover

Starting with the one I have personally, which is the grey removable cover, with bamboo on one side and minky on the other.

Current prices are:

  • 15 lb – $155
  • 18 lb – $175
  • 25 lb – $230

Note that there isn’t an 8 lb removable cover version currently available.

Integrated cover

The integrated cover is less expensive comparatively. Here are the current prices for the bamboo on one side and minky on the other:

  • 8 lb – $105
  • 15 lb – $135
  • 18 lb – $150

Note that there isn’t an 25 lb integrated cover version currently available.


The Luxome weighted blanket could be a good choice if you’d like one that looks elegant with the cover on, and that feels soft without being overly fluffy. It’s robustly made, and the fact that it’s machine washable makes it more convenient to use than those that have to be dry or spot cleaned.

I like how they avoid the confusion of picking the weight of the blanket based on your own weight, and instead have an average per square foot that they tested on different people. It makes it easier to choose based on the dimensions you’d like rather than your own body size.

It’s in the middle of the average price range for weighted blankets I’ve tried. There are more affordable options, such as YNM, Quility, and Cosi Home. And there are more expensive brands like Bearaby, Baloo, or Gravity. In that respect, I think it’s good value for money.

Overall, I perhaps wouldn’t recommend it for hot sleepers unless you like to feel snug while you sleep with air conditioning running. But for colder sleepers and cooler months of the year, the Luxome is a well-designed weighted blanket that looks good and will hopefully help you relax a little better.
