Delivered: The XL Weighted Blanket
“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
I love the warmth and security of weighted blankets, but my twin-size blanket doesn't work with my queen-size bed, and since I can't use it for sleep, I'm not reaping all of the benefits a weighted blanket has to offer. The creators of the XL Weighted Blanket recognized the need for a weighted blanket big enough for two so everyone can sleep a little easier.
Measuring at 100 inches x 120 inches, this huge blanket weighs 30 pounds and comes in three colors. I was afraid at first that a blanket this heavy would feel suffocating, but the beads are so evenly distributed that it felt just as comfortable as my 15 pound blanket. It's large enough to fit a king-size bed with plenty of extra on the sides to prevent blanket-hogging, but still felt perfect on my queen-size bed, too. If you aren't looking for a weighted blanket for your bed, I also found that this was the perfect blanket to share while watching movies.
One of my favorite features of the blanket is that the duvet cover is removable, and therefore easy to clean. But unlike other removable covers, there are ties inside to keep the blanket in place so I don't have to constantly adjust it. The duvet cover is so soft and comfortable that once I'm wrapped up in the blanket, I never want to get up.
