3 Rules to choose the right Weighted Blanket for Menopause?
- Fabric. The fabric must be breathable. If you experience hot flashes and/or night sweats, you may want to choose a blanket with the cooling fabric cotton. All our blankets are made with 100% cotton. Cotton is breathable, isn’t clingy, hypoallergenic and comfortable. Weighted blankets and night sweats might sound like a bad combination at first glance, but its the weight without the heat. The weight helps to calm the nervous system down which in turn helps to calm the mind so that you can get a good nights sleep.
- Washability. All our blankets can be machine washed at 30degrees. They also have a removable cover that can be washed. Any single duvet cover will fit, allowing you to swop covers numerous times if needed.
- The weights. What materials are used? How are the weights distributed? Will they stay put, or will my blanket have bulges a month from now? What about noise? Our Weighted Blankets are weighted with Micro Glass Beads. These beads are noiseless and odourless. They are sewn in small squares to that they do not move. They are evenly distributed so that even if you move during the night the blanket will stay on you!
