“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.

Weighted blankets aren’t a new idea, but the idea of a portable weighted blanket intrigued me. Carrying around a heavy, 20-pound blanket that looks like my comforter never crossed my mind. That’s why I love what Equiilibra created with their portable weighted blanket. It’s designed to be portable and offers versatility for adults and children.

The blankets come in two different options: flannel or minky. Each offers its own benefits and I love the softness of the minky and the warmth of the flannel. It also comes in two different weight options: 7 or 10 pounds. Measuring at 50x60 it is compact and easy to fold but still big enough to wrap around me and give me the comfort I’m looking for. I can take it to a evening sporting event or to the movies for warmth, or cuddle up on the couch for some much needed stress relief.

Their cutting-edge machinery created a reduced “stitching distance” so the material is stronger and more durable. Equiilibra used a special mold to fill the beads so the blankets are uniform in each trid. Their 10cm pocket is smaller and helps distribute the weight evenly. They solved many problems from other weighted blankets including uneven weight, large beads, pelle leaks, and blankets that were just too heavy. This is perfect for those nights I toss and turn and when the weather starts to cool down. I like having a heavier blanket to keep me warm and calm without feeling like I’m trapped.

The portability is perfect for airplanes, cards, strollers, decks, outdoor concerts, and fall picnics. It also makes for a great couch blanket at home. For more information on Equiilibra and the products they deliver, check out the links below.
