Each Weighting Comforts blanket is handmade by a refugee woman in Nashville, Tennessee, creating income for her family. We sew each 5-inch bead pocket with 100% polyester thread for added strength and durability. The weighted beads inside each pocket are made from a FDA-approved, non-irritating PVC compound.
This weighted blanket is designed to improve your sleep and reduce your anxiety for year-round comfort. Many people experience a deeper and more restful sleep on the first night. Others find the blanket’s weight restrictive at first, but over several nights grow to love the effect of the weight.
It works like a deep tissue massage, similar to the effect of a dentist’s lead blanket, naturally releasing serotonin throughout your body to help you calm down and relax.
Our weighted blankets are machine washable on cold or warm, and can be hang dried our dried on tumble dry low. We recommend adding a few towels to even out the weight.
