Weighted Blanket

Weighted Blanket

Hey everyone,
Just bought a weighted blanket after hearing about them for years. I didn’t buy one until now as was always sceptical about the claims and I get hot at night so I figured it wouldn’t work for someone like me. Anyway, this blanket has a cooling cover for hot sleepers as well as a “winter” cover, has great reviews AND best of all a 100 day return policy. I bought a brand called Gravis which is a Canadian company but I understand there’s lots of different brands making high quality… read more

I bought a 15 lbs one. I like it but takes some getting used to.
I tried directly on me. No go.
I tried it on top of the bed. Worked so so.
Then I put it on top of the sheet it works the best there.
Then I bought a 12 lbs one for my chair while watching tv.
I do find them cumbersome at times.
Thinking maybe. 10 lbs on.
I am 6' 1" 220 lbs but they take some getting used to.
I like them...

I have a 15lb weighted blanket.. It helps me especially with leg pain and
anxiety. I don't find it too heavy and I am small.
Olga, thanks for mentioning the cooler cover. I will have to look for one.
I really didn't think I'd like it, but I do. hope this helps:)

I forgot to mention that the blanket he bought was purchased on Amazon and supposedly only weighs 15 pounds. I have arthritis and carpal tunnel in my hands (are we ALL falling apart?!) so its hard to lift things anyways but to me that thing seems SO much more heavier than 15 pounds. But my 14 year old son who has severe ADHD and is bipolar falls asleep under it all of the time and so does my husband. But I dont even want to touch it half of the time. Its made of the nicest, silkiest material too. I feel terrible because it was a gift.😔
