Question Weighted blankets for sleep enhancement?

I've read a few articles about using weighted blankets to help with sleep.

Has anyone tried one?

I tried one when they went on sale for Black Friday. I like the feel of heavy blankets and the weighted blanket gave an exaggerated but similar feel. Unfortunately, the blanket did not improve my sleep at all and I passed it on to my daughter. My daughter said she definitely slept deeper/longer after using it.

They are fairly warm so that has to be factored. I'm not sure I would be able to use a weighted blanket in the summer.

I’m also interested in this subject. Taiga, how do you clean them? I don’t know how the little angry guy got above my post!

The one I purchased could be machine washed. Also, you can purchase a duvet like cover for them.

I bought 10 percent of my weight and I feel it is too heavy. They sell cheaper BBB ones that you might want to try out first.

I got one in December and tried to adjust to it. I am an anxious person and I do find it to be soothing. But itís very warm and so heavy itís distracting to rearrange it if you switch positions.
