The Good Knight weighted blanket is known as being the ideal blanket for users who suffer from allergies. The blanket is 100% hypoallergenic, and the company guarantees that the blanket will not set off a person’s allergies.
Owned by DBD Products and based out of Utah, the Good Knight blanket is made of high-quality 100% premium cotton and uses poly pellets for weight. The blanket is machine washable and dryable on low heat.
The Good Knight blanket is designed to improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and alleviate stress. The weight of the blanket stimulates the nervous system to produce serotonin, which regulates mood, social behavior, sleep, memory, digestion, as well as sexual function and desire. There have been many studies showing the efficacy of weighted blankets. One such study involved 32 adult volunteers, 63 percent of whom reported experiencing a lower amount of anxiety after lying under a 30 lbs blanket for five minutes. Another study examined 42 children, aged 8 to 13, half of whom had ADHD. The study found that children with ADHD fell asleep faster and woke up less when using a weighted blanket.
This blanket is available in one size (60″ x 80″), and two weights (15 lbs, 17 lbs). Good Knight suggests choosing a weight that is 10 percent of a user’s body weight. The cover for the blanket sells separately.
The cotton material of the blanket makes it breathable, ensuring that users will not overheat while they sleep. A user’s body temperature will remain neutral throughout use.
Good Knight sells through Amazon, and they offer a 20% discount on the purchase of a duvet cover when a weighted blanket is purchased. This discount is automatically applied at checkout and is available through Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.
