YnM specializes in creating and selling blankets that simulate the feeling of being hugged. Designed to distribute deep pressure across a person’s body, the weighted blanket calms the body’s nervous system. The deep pressure from a weighted blanket makes the body relax by a technique called “grounding.” This results in improved sleep, better mood, and less stress. Furthermore, weighted blankets can help people with insomnia, autism, pain, and anxiety.
The YnM weighted blanket gets its weight from premium micro glass beads. These beads are hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and odorless. To prevent the beads from bunching, the blanket is filled with thin polyfill, and the beads are evenly distributed through pockets in the blanket. The blanket comes in 100% cotton fabric or bamboo viscose.
Many reviewers prefer the bamboo viscose shell over the cotton shell. They state that the bamboo viscose shell is more breathable and more durable than the cotton shell. Additionally, the bamboo viscose shell is cooler than the cotton shell.
YnM is among the most highly rated manufacturer of weighted blankets on Amazon. This accolade may stem from the fact that the YnM weighted blanket has seven layers. These layers mold to the shape of a person’s body, adding to the sensation of being hugged. Additionally, YnM claims to be more breathable than other blankets due to their honeycomb fabrics, which are better able to expel moisture from the body.
YnM has blankets in several sizes and weight variations. YnM also sells blankets specifically designed for children. The company recommends that customers select a weight that is 10 percent of their body weight. Additionally, YnM offers special duvet covers for their blankets, which are sold separately.
