As temps continue to dip, you might be reaching for a cozy blanket more often. If the one you’ve got is wearing thin, we have good news: there is no shortage of ethical, sustainable, and organic blankets out there, whether you are snuggling up for warmth or comfort. We’ve gathered up a wide variety of sizes, colors, designs, weight, materials, and price ranges, too.

If you are feeling anxious or wired at the end of the day, one of our editors recommends you try a weighted blanket, which has been shown to help with insomnia in adults and children with autism, as well as other issues like anxiety. It’s worth mentioning that weighted blankets may not be a good fit for those with sleep apnea or asthma. Ask your doctor if you’re unsure.

Here’s what to look for in an ethical and sustainable blanket

Earth-friendly fabrics and processes: The brands below use materials like organic cotton, Tencel, hemp, linen, and wool. These naturally biodegradable fibers don’t wreak as much havoc on the environment when they’re washed or thrown out at the end of their life.

Non-toxic: During sleep, our bodies do an incredible amount of detoxification, hormone regulation, and overall recovery, so it’s important to make sure we’re creating the healthiest environment for that to happen. That means you want to go for non-toxic products that are processed and dyed without toxic chemicals. Look for labels like OEKO-TEX, bluesign, GOTS, etc.

Fair labor and transparency: As with everything you buy, check for fair labor practices. Look for brands that prioritize transparency and tell you where their products are made, plus certifications like Fair Trade and SA8000. Luckily, blankets are ripe for artisan and homemade work.

With this in mind, here are our favorite brands that create ethical and sustainable blankets:
