What are my Options to Stay Cool?
1) Weighted Sheets (Snuggle Sheets)
This is our custom-designed "Snuggle Sheet" or "Sensory Sheet" for the hot summer months when a blanket is just not an option.
The Yorkville Snuggle Sheet is not actually a weighted sheet in that it is extremely lightweight, however, it is able to provide the sensory input of a weighted blanket while trapping even less heat. Yorkville Snuggle Sheets work in the same way as a weighted blanket, using the tension of the spandex-hybrid fabric to create pressure rather than weight. Snuggle Sheets fit over the bottom of your bed and pull you down, wrapping around your body and providing the sensory input while retaining almost no heat.
The sheets are popular for those in warm areas, use during the summer, or by anybody suffering from restless leg syndrome by using it just on the bottom half of the mattress. The Yorkville Snuggle Sheets are made for twin, full, and queen size mattresses.
2) Sensory Sacks
The Yorkville Snuggle Sack works in the same way as a weighted blanket and a Snuggle Sheet but provides a more fun and portable option for hot weather summer months. Snuggle Sacks provide a cocoon you can completely escape into while providing sensory pressure to help cope with anxiety, autism, or other disorders. They may look silly, but they work wonders and are fun to stretch, cuddle, and waddle around your home. Yorkville Snuggle Sacks are made in 4 sizes according to your height: Small, Medium, Large, and Tall.
3) Cotton Summer Weighted Blankets
Yorkville Summer Weighted Blankets are designed to be cool. They are the perfect weighted blanket for hot weather. They come in five weights: 5 lb, 10 lb, 14 lb, 18 lb, and 22 lb so they can be used by children and adults. Yorkville weighted blankets are comfy and provide weight without as much heat.
4) Weighted Stuffed Animals
Weighted Teddy Bears and Stuffed Animals such as Chonkers provide a much cheaper and cooler option to blankets as well. Since they are smaller the weight is more concentrated so less weight goes further. Like cuddling up with a pet or loved one the pressure on your lap, chest or wrapped up in your arms can provide similar effects without all of the trapped heat from a blanket.
