What is weighted blanket?
- Dec 27, 2019-
There are good reasons why weighted blankets have become so popular -- and at its core, it comes down to reducing anxiety and promoting better sleep. Weighted blankets are more or less exactly what you’d expect: blankets filled with small objects such as pellets, discs or beads of polypropylene plastic or glass, giving them an added weight that gently hugs the user. Some blend a softer material, like cotton, with the weights to maintain a more traditional duvet feel. Weighted blankets made for adults range from around 10 to 30 pounds, though lighter options for children exist as well. Weighted blankets are not recommended for infants.
A weighted blanket is typically sized to an individual, meaning it won’t necessarily replace your existing comforter. The blanket’s goal is to apply soft, even pressure to your body, which is more effective when it fits you snugly. But weighted blankets also exist in sizes that match typical mattresses, if that’s what you’re looking for.
Though weighted blankets are usually one piece, others come apart, with an inner, weighted layer and a soft outer cover. Both components are usually washable, and a cover offers more flexibility when it comes to style and color. The cover also dries more quickly than the all-in-one blanket.
