The ZonLi Weighted Blanket utilizes deep pressure therapy to help users get a better night’s sleep. Deep pressure therapy is a gentle but firm pressure that relaxes the nervous system, helping individuals to fall asleep and stay asleep. Deep pressure therapy works by helping to regulate the body’s autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS works unconsciously to regulate the processes of the body and one’s breathing rate. The ANS contains two systems, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), aka fight or flight, and the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS), aka rest and digest. When deep pressure is applied, the body switches from the SNS to PSNS, allowing for a deeper, better sleep. The weight of the blanket’s glass beads is what accomplishes this pressure.
A U.S.-based bedding product manufacturer produces the ZonLi Weighted Blanket. ZonLi considers its most valuable asset to be its dedicated and loyal team of operators. ZonLi states that they operate with a high level of professionalism and that their team of motivated professionals has created long-lasting relationships with customers and communities.
The blanket is constructed of natural and environmental material and contains hypoallergenic, non-toxic, odorless glass beads which are sewed evenly into tiny squares. ZonLi promises exceptional quality, stating that nothing leaves their factory until it is thoroughly checked for defects.
The blanket contains several individual layers — the middle layer consists of glass beads, which provide the weight, the bottom and top layer consist of microfiber and solid polyester for extra padding, and a cotton shell envelops these layers with additional layers of cotton backing. This multi-layered construction provides above-average insulation. Additionally, the materials are pretty durable, giving the blanket an enhanced lifespan.
The ZonLi Weighted Blanket does not include a duvet cover; it sells separately. ZonLi offers duvet covers that are available in polyester minky, cotton, rayon, and bamboo.
ZonLi Blankets are available in 5,7,10 and 12-pound weights for children, and 15, 17, 20, 22, 25, and 30-pound weights for adults. ZonLi recommends that individuals select a weighted blanket that is approximately 10 percent of their body weight. This means that ZonLi’s blankets can accommodate children and adults who weigh between 50 and 300 pounds.
