If you're the type of person who wakes up in a sweat in the middle of the night, whether it's the height of summer or the dead of winter, chances are you need to rethink your bedding. And you can start with the Gravity Cooling Blanket, which combines the soothing effects of a typical weighted blanket with cooling, anti-sweat, moisture-wicking material to keep you from overheating.
Weighted blankets are designed to provide gentle pressure as you sleep, which is said to increase dopamine and serotonin in the brain to reduce anxiety. Think of it like a nice, comforting hug. The queen/king-size Gravity Cooling Blanket weighs a hefty 35 pounds, thanks to the glass beads inside. The beads are held in place by precision-guided stitching that keeps them from slipping and ensures equal and even distribution of weight across the surface of the blanket.
The queen/king-size version comes in at a 90-inch-by-90-inch spread that will fit over practically any bed, and its special technical fabric is breathable and moisture wicking to ensure comfort no matter what the surrounding temperature might be, whether you're a "hot sleeper" or not. And if you’re concerned about style, the gravity cooling blanket is available in your choice of three different color options: gray, blue, and white.
While the larger queen/king-size Gravity Cooling Blanket is the standard, it's also available in 15-pound, 20-pound, and 25-pound options.
To check the options out for yourself, make your way to the Gravity online store.
