Weighted blankets have become a popular sleep accessory
for many adults and children. The sensation of sleeping beneath
a weighted blanket releases ‘happiness hormones’ that can improve
sleep quality and duration.
Most weighted blankets are filled with glass or plastic beads
in order to make them heavier than standard blankets and quilts;
typically, the blankets are available in multiple weight options.
They are also padded with polyester fiber fill for extra softness.
