#5588 Weighted Blanket Weighted Blanket
Order number of items. A weighted blanket can help soothe a person like a big hug. Several studies show many, many health benefits and the one that interested me was the improved sleep. My weighted blankets are made of top quality 100% cotton. They are hypo-allergenic and are filled with 100% polypropylene stuffing beads. The weighted blankets are machine-washable and dryable on low. Several sizes available.
