@tmwest87 I have always liked heavy bedcovers [they remind me of the quilts my gram made for us kids], but I’m often too warm under them [except in the dead of winter], so the one I bought last time [for $34] has been pretty good for me- until this week, because even with the A/C on, it has been just a little too warm for it.
Very comfortable- if you like that sort of blanket.
@saunyandjack It’s the exact opposite of what’d be on this site, but I’ve had the same heavy denim comforter from LLBean for 20 years now. It breathes, it’s heavy -but not like these-, and it’s been through hell and back and is only faded.
@dasred I bought one last time and it’s good. I use it for when having to sleep in the couch after coming home from work. I have a slightly bigger and heavier one for the main bed that I like more though.
Ugh. I already kick off my top sheet during the night - I’d probably launch this thing out the window. Don’t understand how/why anyone would want a lead weight on them while they’re sleeping - guess I’m not the target market for this product.
@cbl_wv #1- lead [even the dust from inside lead aprons] is poisonous- so NO one wants to sleep under a lead weight.
#2- Having said that, I love it when they put the lead apron on me before dental [and other X-Rays] because of the weight.
I grew up sleeping in very cold rooms under the very heavy quilts my Gram made for us and find that this weighted blanket is very similar without causing excessive or unnecessary heat retention, because not only do I have [nominal given my SWMBO] control of the thermostat now, but I’m a pretty large male and overheat easily.
#3- As noted above, it also helps with my Restless Leg Syndrome.
@nolrak This is more like having my 60# Boxer-Greyhound mix sleeping “on” you- because the weight is spread out, there’s no concentration of the weight pressing down on your chest and impairing breathing.
@callow@mike808 Damn, guess a goat can’t get a break around here. Btw, personal experience says this blanket is perfect for one person but won’t work for two at the same time. Unless they’re Oompa Loompas.
Does the little beads come through the fabric and end up all over the place? Sleeping ON the little beads would not help with anxiety or insomnia. Anybody use this brand? I think they sold this a while back. Can someone who bought one give us a review on it?
I bought one last time for when my grandson spends the night. He can’t sleep without it and lugging his back and forth every time he spent the night was a pain.
This one looks just like the one he already had at about half the price. It seems well made with strong seams.
Dry clean only didn’t deter me because I would never put that much weight in my washing machine. Just use a washable duvet to cover.
Bought this cover to go with the blanket I bought the first time they were offered. It’s soft and seems nicely made. It has ties in the corners which enable you to tie it on to the loops sewn on the weighted blanket. Though it’s about half the price of the blanket itself, it’s far and away one of the least expensive covers available that perfectly fits this size blanket. https://www.amazon.com/Atmosphere-Products-Premium-Weighted-Blanket/dp/B07KC694CZ/ref=sr_1_3
I purchased this the last time it was offered and have been very pleased. For those concerned about the size, I have a queen sized bed, and found it to be perfect. It covers about half of the bed, which is all I need. You don’t want it so big that it hangs over the edge and the weight pulls it off.
Looking forward to receiving this and giving it a shot. I should have a heavier one based upon weight, but since I want light weight, we’ll see what I think of this. First purchase on the new site that I just learned about today!
