From the 'hugging' sensation to their ability to help you get a better night’s rest—there's a magic to weighted blankets that have captivated millions of sleepers all over the world. Let's look under the covers and discover what goes into weighted blankets and their various benefits. But first...
What is a weighted blanket?
You know that warm, snug feeling when you're tucked into your bed during the winter with a chunky duvet? Perhaps with some additional blankets and pillows stacked on top too? A weighted blanket is all of that tucked into one convenient package.
The blanket is divided up into dozens of pockets sewn using innovative stitching technology to prevent leaks. We pack these with thousands of glass microbeads (heavier and more sustainable than plastic beads) which give the blanket that trademark hugging sensation. Perfect for when you settle into bed for a well-earned rest.
