Modern life is a nerve-wracking, enervating experience, with new sources of anxiety being introduced on a daily basis. And social distancing and a deadly pandemic haven't exactly helped matters. So if you feel your mental and emotional composure is fraying and your sleep is suffering as a result, a weighted blanket like those offered by Gravity Blankets may be good for what ails you. And if you're the type of sleeper who can't stand a hot bed, the new Gravity Cooling Blanket is perfect for these hot summer nights.
Gravity is one of the most popular brands of weighted blankets on the market today, which is no surprise since it's also one of the oldest. The soft, soothing weight of a Gravity Blanket uses “deep touch pressure stimulation” to provide relaxation and comfort to even the most frazzled person enveloped in its folds. Put more simply, the blanket’s 35-pound weight simulates the sensation of being held, much like a physical hug, and results in a better and deeper night’s sleep with less tossing and turning beforehand.
Gravity Blanket customers have long been satisfied with the comfort and soothing effects of a weighted blanket, but have inundated the brand with requests for a blanket large enough for a queen or king-size bed. Now, those requests have been answered, with a 90 x 90-inch Gravity Blanket that weighs 35 pounds, perfect for any queen or even king-sized bed. Each weighted blanket contains an inner piece weighted with evenly-distributed glass beads within a machine-washable soft duvet cover, available in micro-fleece or 100-percent cotton, and in a variety of colors.
That inner weighted piece is the killer part of every Gravity Blankets product, and the piece’s precision-guided stitching keeps every single weighted glass bead in place and prevents any uncomfortable bunching, and keeping that hugging weight uniform across the body.
The basic Gravity Blanket in a queen/king-friendly size costs $249 in original micro-fleece and $265 for the 100-percent cotton “Modernist” variant. Installment plans are available, as well as a $20 discount for signing up for the Gravity Blankets mailing list. You can order yours now from the Gravity Blankets online store, where shipping and handling within the United States is absolutely free.
If you’re reading this from the western hemisphere, you’re probably wondering why you would want a particularly heavy blanket in the middle of summer, no matter how comforting to your nervous system it might be. But Gravity Blankets has figured this out too, with their Queen/King Cooling Blanket, a version of their 35-pound king/queen size weighted blanket outfitted with a moisture-wicking fabric that will keep you cozy and cool all night long.
The Gravity Blankets Queen/King Cooling Blanket costs $259, an ideal way to find out if the magic of a weighted blanket can work for you even in the heat of summer.
You can get more information on all Gravity Blankets products, including the regular Queen/King version and the Queen/King Cooling Blanket straight from the source, and if you’re not satisfied you can return it for a refund within 30 days.
