Weighted Blankets by Weighted Evolution
Have you ever heard of weighted blankets?? I was introduced to this phenomenon by a really close friend of mine who co-sleeps just like our family does. We were chatting about the blog and work and I told her how hard it has been the past few months because every time I try to sneak out of the bed to work, I wake up the boys!! Then I’m stuck lying there, staring at the wall until Martin comes home and takes my place in the cuddle zone.
She told me that she had a similar issue until she tried a weighted blanket. I had never heard of one before and did a bit of research. So how this works is, you choose a blanket based on the weight of the person using it. The blanket then provides an embrace like feeling, helping the person to relax and best of all, keeps you asleep for the full sleep cycle!!
So, of course, I jumped on this and ordered the boys one right away from a company called Weighted Evolution. I love that they use organic bamboo for the cover and was pretty impressed by the reviews. The first night that I tried it was like a dream. I put the boys down to sleep, covered them with the blanket and they drifted off so quickly and without all the kicking, turning and crawling all over the place. Once they were sound asleep, I was able to slide right out of the bed and get to work!! It was amazing. I cannot recommend it enough for any light sleepers!!
Details of the Weighted Evolution Blankets
With so many different options out there for Weighted Blankets, I thought it would be very beneficial to our followers to explain exactly why we chose Weighted Evolution for our trusted brand of choice. Let’s get started!
Thes blankets have been specifically engineered to address the shortcomings of other weighted blankets that you may have seen scattered all over your facebook ads Sleeping with a Weighted Evolution blanket feels like a warm and snuggly embrace that does not overwhelm the body. The thin 7 layer minimalist design offers maximum body contouring, deep pressure stimulation, and excellent weight distribution while using the most advanced adaptive temperature regulating materials available.
The Duvet Cover
The removable Blissful Bamboo duvet cover is made of 95% Bamboo and 5% Spandex knit fabric. Bamboo is ultra-breathable and temperature regulating, providing unique dual insulating and cooling properties which keep you warm in winter and cool and dry in summer. Another great perk to using organic bamboo is that is washes beautifully!
The inner blanket is made of the highest quality micro-glass beads that work wonders on the body. These beads provide the maximum body contouring and deep pressure stimulations for a beautiful night’s sleep. It took me about 4 days to get used to the all-over body massage but by the end of the week, I was hooked! The beads truly have a great weight distribution that is even on all fronts. I am usually a hot sleeper and this blanket did not make me feel uncomfortable at all.
Super Easy to Wash
We received these blankets as soon as the stomach flu hit my children and I am pleased to say that these washed beautifully. The blanket comes in two pieces: the duvet cover and the inside weighted blanket. It was extremely easy to unzip the duvet, untie the inner blanket and wash! I love how the ties on the inside of the blanket keep the weighted blanket perfectly in place at all times. Genius idea.
We are so honored to have the Weighted Evolution Blankets grace our home. I am so thankful to have come across this brand through deep research into sustainable home living and, of course, so excited to share them with our community today.
**Weighted Evolution was kind enough to gift me the two blankets shown to promote their weighted blankets with our community and beyond. Of course, the blog post was all written by me and without any bias. I truly do love these blankets and you will see me and my sons snuggling and loving these for years and years to come.
