Earplugs, goggles, meditation, essential oils, deep breathing, white noise... When these methods do not work to help you fall asleep, there may be only one 20lbs weight blanket and a 20 lbs can give you a good night's sleep: Weighted Blanket.


Yes, it is 20 lbs, we did not write the wrong unit. What we usually find in silk quilts, cashmere quilts, and quilt quilts are all soft, fluffy, and breathable. The consumer’s intrinsic impression is “not loose equals uncomfortable”. As everyone doesn’t knows, for the anxiety-stricken people with greater stress, "weighted blanket" not only does not cause discomfort, but also allows the body and mind to be greatly relaxed. Covered with a weighted blanket, the entire body will return to the fetus in the womb and gain a great sense of security and satisfaction, thus improving sleep quality.


Studies have shown that when people cover “weighted blanket” that are about 10% of their body weight, the body's stress cortisol is significantly inhibited, and the levels of serotonin and melatonin that are beneficial to sleep are elevated. Related studies have also confirmed that the use of heavy weight can effectively improve symptoms of insomnia, PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder), obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and long-term anxiety.

So what is Weighted Blanket?



Weighted Blanket has three weight specifications: 15 pounds (about 6.8 kilograms), 20 pounds (about 9 kilograms), and 25 pounds (about 11.3 kilograms). For best results, users should pick a weight that is close to 10% of their body weight.


The outer layer of gravity is made of ultra-soft, fleece-like fabric, which has an excellent skin feel and can be removed by machine washing. Inside is made of 100% cotton. We also have cotton covers, which is more suitable for Spring and Summer.


The deep touch pressure stimulation that makes people feel wrapped is derived from these non-toxic, odorless, colorless food-grade high-density plastic pellets. They are not only safe and harmless, but they also can't afford the convenience of washing machines and dryers. The special stitching design evenly holds these granules in the quilt core, allowing you to feel the gravitational wrapping whether you are leaning, lying or sitting.


If you suffer from sleep or stress, Weighted Blanket may be the key to the problem.
