Sleeping bags for hedgehogs are great to strengthen the bond between you and your pet and most hedgies love to take a nap in there. That said, it isn’t so easy to find the right one, as you can’t count the numerous products and brands. In this review, I will show you my favorite ones. Enjoy!

Why Do You Need A Snuggle Sack?
Snuggle sacks or sleeping bags for hedgehogs are most likely made of a soft fabric. They are cozy and warm and offer your hedgehog a place to rest and feel safe. Most hedgehog owners experience that their hedgehogs love to hide in the sack when they are tired.
Especially when you just got your little hedgie a sleeping bag can be a good tool to get used to each other. Your new friend will be nervous and perhaps a bit frightened too. As you might know, hedgehogs have a very good sense of smell. Therefore it takes a while for him to get familiar with you and its new surroundings.
You can use a snuggle sack to bond faster with your hedgehog. Just put him in his sack and place it on your legs or chest while you read, watch tv or do something else. The shy pet now can be near you while feeling safe.
If you want to carry your hedgie with you when you leave the house, I recommend checking out the best hedgehog carrier bags.
Best Hedgehog Sleeping Bags
Here comes my list of hedgehog approved snuggle bags.
- Approx 7.87” x 10.24”
This handmade sleeping bag by Ymid Select is not the cheapest, but definitely my favorite one! It comes in a nice design with little hedgehogs printed on the outside. Use materials are Japanese cotton for the outside and cushy flannel for the inside. I think that is why hedgehogs love it so much.
All materials are of very high quality. You won’t notice any strong odor coming from the fabric parts. That said, it is clear that no PVC is used. Of course, all materials are non-toxic.
I recommend hand washing the sleeping bag, so it stays in form for a long time.
- Quality materials
- No odor
- Great design
- S: Appr. 6.7” x 7” x 5.1”
- M: Appr. 9” x 8.3” x 5.9”
- XL: Appr. 11” x 13” x 8.3”
The main advantage of the snuggle sack by JanYoo is that it comes in three different sizes. You can pick the one that fits your hedgehog just right. If you think that’s great but don’t like the design, no worries, you can choose between six different styles. Just go to amazon and pick your favorite one.
The materials are super soft plush and a cotton filling. Both are very long-lasting and give a cozy feeling to your hedgie. Have in mind that this bag has a shaped opening, so most hedgehogs tend to burrow under the cotton filling to hide completely.
Another very practical feature is the removable mat (cotton filling). However, while this makes cleaning it easier most of the time you will still have to wash the whole bag once in a while. This is especially the case if your pet hides under the mat regularly.
The non-slip bottom is practical if you use it on slippery surfaces like in a playpen without bedding.
- Different sizes
- Different designs
- Washable filling
- Soft materials
- Non-slip bottom
- Stays open
- Hedgehogs typically want more privacy and burrow under the mat
- Approx. 8.5″ x 11″ x 10.5″
The hedgehog sleeping bag by Niteangle is also a very good option, especially when you take a look at its price. It’s made of warm polar fleece and gives your hedgie a nice and cozy feeling. As it holds its shape, your pet can easily enter the bag. While this might be a pro, I observed that hedgehogs often prefer narrower ones like the bag I reviewed above.
That said, Niteangel is of course a good brand when it comes to small pet supplies. Materials are of good quality and the product is processed very well.
For cleaning, you can just put it in the washing machine, but handwashing will be more material-protecting.
- Quality materials
- Stays open
My favorite pick is the handmade hedgehog sleeping bag by Ymid Select. This is mainly because of two things. First, the access doesn’t stay open, so it is cozy and your hedgehog can hide completely without having the fear that anyone can observe him. That gives him the privacy he needs. Second, I really like the design and the fact that it’s handmade. The product quality has just convinced me.
