You might as well call it a wearable thermostat because the HILU Blanket can keep you warm in the cold, and keep you cool in the hot months. Designed to be the kind of blanket you can use all year round, HILU’s unique thermoregulating properties can be attributed to the use of a single innovative material – Graphene. Known for its super-conductivity, the pure graphene fibers within the HILU blanket intuitively work to keep you warm or cool based on your body temperature. The blanket works entirely without electricity, adapts to your needs, and can simultaneously keep one half of the bed warm while keeping the other half cool! Whether you’re looking for a neat Christmas gift, or just looking to cut down your energy bills by not cranking the thermostat up this winter, the HILU is a perfect alternative to that stuffy, sweaty comforter… and it’s currently on a massive discount for the holiday season.

The world’s first pure graphene blanket, HILU possesses some unique qualities. It can regulate temperatures better than any other fabric, switching from hot to cold based on your own body temperature. That means in the summers, it cools your body down, and in winter, it warms you up. More importantly, the temperature regulation is hyper-localized too, which means for two people sharing the same blanket, it can keep one warm and the other cool or vice versa. That aside, the presence of graphene fibers allows the HILU blanket to be naturally sweat and odor-resistant, while also being anti-bacterial. Given the sheer strength of graphene as a material, the HILU blanket is built to be incredibly durable too (the company touts an unmatched warranty).
Crafted from graphene fiber, HILU’s fabric construction begins with the dissolution of graphite into liquid graphene crystals using a specialized wet spinning process. These liquid crystals are then dried to form the fibers, which are skillfully woven together using Patented Adaptex Technology. The result is a remarkable blanket that not only senses and adapts to your body temperature but also excels in other essential aspects of blanket design, such as being soft, comfortable, hypoallergenic, and even OEKO-TEX100 certified. Furthermore, the use of graphene in the construction ensures exceptional durability, making your HILU blanket long-lasting and incredibly durable.
The blanket’s thermoregulating feature gives it the unique distinction of being a blanket you can use all around the year, in any weather. When you’re cold, the fibers dissipate heat to raise your body temperature, and when you’re hot, the graphene fibers absorb heat from your body, cooling you down, reducing stuffiness or humidity, and keeping you dry and sweat-free all night long. Even if you do sweat, the graphene fibers are naturally anti-bacterial, allowing your blanket to remain fresh for weeks (although we do recommend occasional washes!) To wash your blanket, just run it on a gentle cycle with cold water and tumble low dry and your HILU is as good as new!
The HILU blanket comes in both Queen and King sizes, backed by its maker’s impressive 10-year limited manufacturing warranty. The blanket itself comes in a gorgeous neutral satin grey color, although HILU does offer color customization by way of stitch colors, available in gray, blue, and green to match your room’s decor. Both the Queen and King blankets are on a hefty discount exclusive to YD readers, and if you want, HILU offers a graphene + memory foam sleeping mask to match your blanket!
