I purchased this blanket because I have insomnia and used to pile blankets on my bed for the weight. I heard about weigthed blankets and figured it couldn’t help to try (I refuse to take prescription sleep aids). I shopped around until I found this shop and read the reviews. I decided to give it a try and I’m so happy I did. The quality of the blanket is more than I could have hoped for, it is machine washable. I climb into bed and pull the blanket over me, and my body immediatly relaxes. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Thank you so much.
