About Luxome

This Luxome weighted blankets review will get into the benefits of weighted blankets, their product line, customer feedback, and more, to help inform your purchase decision.

Overview of Luxome

Luxome doesn’t provide much brand information on their website, choosing instead to focus exclusively on products. Luxome notes that their weighted blankets have “helped over 50,000 customers reduce stress and sleep better.” Whether this figure only counts satisfied customers versus all customers, who knows. 

Luxome bedding is produced by premium manufacturers in China. Their product line is stored in Michigan at the company’s headquarters, where product development, testing, and design takes place. The brand was established in 2018⁠—so it’s pretty new to the scene.

Luxome sells high-end pillows and bamboo sheets to go with their weighted blankets. Before we get into their full lineup, it’s useful to know why you would even go with a weighted blanket in the first place.

Side note, who else is jealous of that setup she’s got going on?

Benefits of Weighted Blankets

According to Luxome, weighted blankets have been used for many years to treat problems from insomnia to autism. These blankets integrate the same concept as swaddling: a constant pressure against the skin that imitates the comfort of the womb, naturally creating a relaxed response. 

Evidently, no one reading this is a baby, but that’s not to say that physiological sensations that we developed in mom’s uterus don’t stay with us. It seems relevant to why a) babies like to be wrapped up like burritos and b) some adults like to sleep in the fetal position and c) a tight hug can be calming when you’re anxious.

It’s common knowledge that having a good night’s sleep has huge effects on cognition, mood, job performance, and driving abilities (falling asleep at the wheel is not unusual). It’s lesser known that sleep deprivation contributes to a weakened immune system and risk for diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Luxome points out that sleep deprivation is linked to a number of major disasters, including Chernobyl.

Referencing a horrific historical event on a weighted blankets website may be unusual, but it does emphasize just how important a good night’s sleep is. For parents reading this Luxome weighted blankets review, you’ll know how important a regular sleep schedule is for child development and behavior. The only thing that may be worse than a hungry child, is a sleep deprived one.

Luxome Weighted Blankets

Luxome blankets contain non-toxic, hypoallergenic 1 mm glass beads to establish weight. They’re specifically designed so that the beads don’t bunch and create uneven weight distribution: each blanket contains small pockets with filling to keep the beads evenly spread out. 

Luxome blankets have an optimized weight per square foot—in other words, you don’t have to choose a preferred weight for your blanket. According to their studies, an optimal weight per square footage was agreed upon by nearly everyone regardless of age, weight, and size.

Luxome offers flexible payment options. Customers can pay for products up front or in Klarna installments. For more information on this payment process, check the FAQ section. Next up in this Luxome weighted blankets review, we’ll get into every product they offer: 

Integrated Cover Blanket

The Luxome Integrated Cover Blanket is a 2-in-1 cover and weighted blanket, perfect for people who want to cut down on laundry items or are seriously annoyed about having to wrestle their duvet into its cover. There are three fabric options to choose from:

The 100% organic Lyocell bamboo fabric feels like a combination of premium cotton and silk. It’s cooling, moisture-wicking, thermal regulating, antibacterial, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and ultra soft. Alternatively, you could go with the soft and super cozy minky fabric, which is a warmer option, though still cooler than fleece, microfiber, and flannel. Or you can go with bamboo/minky, with each side possessing the benefits of the fabrics individually.

The Integrated Cover Blanket comes with an oxford carrying tote and is machine-washable—so just toss it in the washing machine, transfer it to the dryer, place it on your bed, and boom. You’re done. This Luxome weighted blanket comes in minky blue/grey, minky two-tone grey, minky aqua/grey, minky coral/grey, bamboo grey, bamboo beige, and bamboo/minky grey.

Dimensions (Inches)Weight (Lbs)Price
42 x 568$119.99
54 x 7215$161.99
60 x 8018$184.99

The bamboo/minky material is cool on one side and cozy on the other, containing 100% organic Lyocell bamboo fabric on one side and 300 thread count cotton on the other. Other choices include 100% organic Lyocell bamboo and the super cozy minky material. 

The Removable Cover Blanket comes with an oxford carrying tote and is machine washable.

Cooling Blankets

If you live in a warm climate or are a hot sleeper, even if you have the AC blasting, a regular blanket doesn’t always cut it. Luxome’s Cooling Blanket provides the comfortable weight while keeping you from overheating at night. It’s available with a carrying tote in 100% bamboo or bamboo/minky, either with a removable cover or the integrated cover.

If you’re a really hot sleeper, the all bamboo integrated blanket is the lightest and coolest option. The Luxome Cooling Blanket comes in removable bamboo/minky cover white, grey, beige, or lattice; removable bamboo cover in grey or white; integrated bamboo cover in grey or beige; and integrated bamboo/minky cover in two-tone grey.

LAYR Adjustable Pillow

Luxome offers the LAYR Adjustable Pillow to go with their weighted blankets. Its firmness and height are adjustable for optimal neck support, so it’s not the average Joe pillow. The adjustable pillow features gel-infused and CertiPUR-US memory foam, mesh vent and cooling technology, with a cover that’s anti-microbial and thermal-regulating.

The customization element of the LAYR Adjustable Pillow lies in the inserts. The Luxome pillow comes with three, each with a different effect: 

  • The soft insert is made of premium down alternative, for those who like extra cozy and soft pillows
  • The medium insert contains a mix of gel-infused shredded memory foam and soft down alternative
  • The firm insert includes a 1” and 2” piece of solid gel-infused memory foam, both inside a breathable cotton cover to help regulate heat

You can find an ideal configuration of two inserts, or use all three for a super high loft pillow. All included parts of the LAYR Adjustable Pillow are conveniently machine washable. The Standard/Queen size is priced at $164.99 and the King size goes for $189.99

Bamboo Sheets

If you’re going all out with a premium weighted blanket or pillow, you might as well splurge for some seriously lush sheets. Luxome’s Bamboo Sheet Set is 100% pure bamboo with a 400 thread count that they claim is softer than 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton. They have a Sateen weave for ultra softness, optimal cooling, and high durability

The Luxome Bamboo Sheet Set is moisture-wicking and thermal regulating to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Each set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Luxome’s bamboo sheets come in navy, sky blue, grey, beige, sage, and white. This Luxome set is available in Full ($149.99), Queen ($159.99) and King ($179.99) size.

Luxome Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Luxome Weighted Blankets Review 12
@luxome

Customers can leave Luxome weighted blanket reviews on the website, where you can find over 3,000 5-star ratings. Reviewers confirmed that the cooling blanket actually is cooling, attested to the quality of the blankets, and described them as cozy/comfy/comforting. Many customers had tried out other weighted blankets before Luxome and concluded that the brand was superior. 

Reviews were glowing on the website, but that’s not really surprising. For this Luxome weighted blankets review, we venture further into the web. Tuck Sleep researched customer feedback and found that some reviewers had to buy more than one blanket to place on the original, since Luxome doesn’t offer different weights for each blanket size. Tuck noted that the Luxome weighted blankets stand out due to their higher-quality glass bead filing, and that customers didn’t report weight bunching. 

Supercomfysleep.com also wrote a Luxome weighted blankets review, reporting that the fabrics were cooler than those offered by other brands. Unlike Tuck Sleep, this reviewer acknowledged Luxome’s optimal weight rationale and found no fault in the lack of weight options.

I also checked the Luxome weighted blankets review section on Amazon for the Integrated Cover Blanket with minky cover, which has a 4.7/5 star rating. The only negative comments were that the blanket wasn’t cooling enough, but if that’s what they were going for, they shouldn’t have chosen the minky cover option, which is warmer than the 100% bamboo. 

It’s safe to say in this Luxome weighted blankets review that you get what you pay for with these products. They’re definitely on the pricier end when it comes to blankets, but not outrageously so. If you’re looking to invest in a good quality weighted blanket, that won’t come cheap. With Luxome, it’s a safe bet, and you can always return the blanket, pillow, or sheet set if you’re not satisfied.
