I spent a lot of time researching weighted blankets and most had “minky” fabric, which I did not want. The cotton on this blanket is perfect. I weight 135 and am 5’9” and ended up ordering the 20 lb blanket. I’m very happy with that weight, since I think the 15 lb would have been lighter than I was looking for. Had some issues with the first blanket and the baloo team exchanged it for me very easily!
Bought the 15 Ibs queen and have found using it a very comforting experience so far.
So far the item itself appears to be having the desired impact. I am only giving it 4 stars because, I am personally a super light sleeper in a lot of cases, and I have only been using it for a little over a week as of this writing. The biggest change for me so far while having this item is that I do sleep deeper and for longer. I have noticed marked less rolling and overall comfort. I deliberately purchased this summer cool weight because it gets mega hot at night here in the south.
I had been wanting a weighted blanket for a long time to help with anxiety. Because I don't have AC, during summer its too hot for as many blankets I need for weight. I read great reviews and decided to splurge and try one out. I ordered a queen for my queen bed. I received my item quickly and found it to be great quality and very breathable at night in my hot apartment. Overall excellent product. I decided to exchange for King though because I want more overhang on my bed Note: Pay attention to measurements because these do not hang down like a regular comforter would on a bed. They are smaller and sized to only cover top part of mattress. The exchange process was very quick and email responses from Customer Service were soooo fast! They have a great team working for them and were so helpful with my exchange. Their program for tracking my return and new item is the best I've encountered. Overall, extremely please and happy I chose this company to support. :-)
Living in today’s world of COVID-19 and racial injustice doesn’t make for an easy night of sleep. This weighted blanket seemed to be the best on the market due to it’s washability and lack of heat retention. I have gone from waking up in a panic about six times a night to almost none. I been getting a deeper, more restful sleep with less tossing and turning. My legs feel more relaxed instead of feeling like I have been walking all night. I have not washed the blanket yet. I would like to get a cover for it but I need to save up some more money because they aren’t cheap. I feel like a different person since I started using the weighted blanket. It works a lot better than melatonin! Just some deep breathing exercises and my blanket and I am all set for a good night’s sleep. Thank you!
