When I first started making weighted blankets, it was because I personally witnessed how they helped calm people with anxiety. We have been making weighted blankets for over three years now, and we love hearing about the many reasons people look for the best weighted blanket. From nightmares and body aches to hormonal imbalance and insomnia, a weighted blanket might be a helpful all-natural sleep aid for yourself or someone you know.  I’d love to share with you a few testimonies of people whose lives have improved because of our blankets.

Sleepwalking

“Using a weighted blanket has stopped my sleepwalking in its tracks… yes, pun intended... haven’t been up in months.”  - Shauna


Insomnia

“I am a 46-year-old woman that has been suffering from insomnia for a number of years. I've read two books on insomnia and read countless articles. Very few things made any difference. The weighted blanket has made a marked improvement in my sleep. I cannot thank you enough. I wish I would've found your product sooner.”  - Heather


Bad Dreams

I bought this for my daughter to help with nightmares. She loves it! Says it feels like a hug from Mom.

Muscle Aches & Anxiety

“I have had this blanket less than a week and within two days, I began to feel a difference in the quality of my sleep. I didn't get it because of anxiety, which I have, but because my body felt sore and achy after hard workouts at the gym and I didn't want to take ibuprofen. Well, the blanket does help with that, but last night I came home after an upsetting incident at work. Normally, the anxiety would keep me up all night, but within 30 minutes of getting into bed and reading, I was so relaxed my eyes were closing. I slept through most of the night and woke up feeling better. I feel quite confident now in recommending this several friends who suffer from anxiety and insomnia. The only problem is I don't want to get out of bed in the morning!”  - Geeta


Menopause & Peri-Menopause

“I was skeptical at first. It took me a good 6 months before I placed the order. Menopause is killing me and I haven’t slept in years. I sleep with the (CoolMax) blanket directly on top of me. I sleep 😴. It’s not heavy when it’s on you. Heavy to carry, but not once it’s on you. It simply works. Like when you’re at a spa and they cover you with heavy blankets on the massage table. Simply amazing.”


Light Sleeper & Stress at Work

“We were discussing weighted blankets in some adult adoptee groups. I’d read about them but had no idea how much I needed one. We did a lot of research and here’s what I’ve discovered. The construction of this blanket is ideal. The smaller squares evenly distribute the weight. I’ve had no issues with the weight shifting to one side. While laying in bed at night watching our final bit of TV, I suddenly feel….chill, like relaxed. My breathing relaxes, my stress shuts down. The weight can feel a tad odd at first… I no longer wake up each time my husband gets up, I no longer hear all of his snoring, I’m suddenly sleeping through the night. It seemed like a high price to pay for my curiosity. I now see it was not a high price at all! I like the company’s values as well, so it’s an added plus...

“Total win!! Be sure to read their FAQ as it’s a wealth of information. While you wait for your blanket to arrive, check out the blog too!!”  - Wendy

I’ve had my Coolmax weighted blanket about a week. I LOVE it! I’ve always loved sleeping with lots of heavy blankets but as I’ve gotten older I am just too hot to handle all the warmth so I was sleeping with a sheet and a leg out to try and stay cool. This blanket actually feels cool. I love the weight and it’s just amazing! It is worth every penny. I’m sleeping so much better and this 52 year old doesn’t get hot anymore! I will be taking this with me when I travel because I truly don’t want to sleep without it! Thank you! Love it!!

I was recently in a hospital for mental health conditions. I have been retired for a year now and I have never had so much stress in my life. Every winter I suffer from SADS. Then in mid February I went to Memphis to buy a sailboat. Then when in Memphis I was high bidder on an airplane that I had been bidding on.Well my family exploded and the wrath came down on me. I was so very angry and saying the wrong things that our local town chief of police came to remove all of my guns from my residence. Anyway I had never heard of a weighted blanket. I was recently in Nashville, I could have placed my order in person. Well I want to make a special order. Ok, how do I do this? Please lead me on this golden road.

Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.

Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
