Weighted blankets seek to mimic the experience of deep pressure stimulation (DPS), which has calming properties that help those with ADHD, sensory processing disorders, or those who enjoy the peaceful, soothing comfort of weighted pressure while they sleep. Users also report that weighted blankets help with insomnia, anxiety, and restless sleep.
In reviews on Amazon, customers have reported that Degrees of Comfort blankets offer a more restful night’s sleep and that the weighted sensation reduces insomnia and restlessness. The blankets have also shown results for some anxiety sufferers. The blanket is said to create a sense of calm and serenity.
Of course, there can be an adjustment period to sleeping under a weighted blanket. Consumers report that it often takes a few nights to adjust to the feeling of a weighted blanket like Degrees of Comfort. Once they do, however, they sleep longer and wake more rested.
The Degrees of Comfort blankets are not designed to hang off the sides of the bed like other blankets. Hanging from the sides does not distribute the weight correctly, across the person. The small size can cause issues for those who want traditional bedding décor in their homes but is easily solved with a lightweight comforter, blanket, or other nice bedding used over the Degrees of Comfort. The cover over the Degrees of Comfort blanket can be folded back for sleep and pulled up again when you make the bed.
The Degrees of Comfort weighted blanket has solved a problem many weighted blankets have not mastered, which is how to adjust for hot and cold sleepers. Two duvets come with the blanket. One is designed for those who want to be cool and comfortable when they sleep, and the other is designed specifically for those who want to feel warm and cozy.
The duvets are made of high-quality materials. The cooler of the two uses CoolMax Microfiber technology that ventilates body heat. The other is a fleece material designed for coziness and warmth, even on the coldest winter night. The CoolMax technology used in Degrees of Comfort blankets is an answer to consumers who want the benefits of a weighted blanket, but have been unable to find one that is comfortable due to their bodies’ tendency to heat up during sleep.
The Degrees of Comfort blanket offers a variety of colors, sizes, and weight options:
