The Tranquility Weighted Blanket helps you fall asleep faster, remain asleep through the night and wake rested. This weighted blanket applies gentle, even, pressure across your body and helps calm and comfort people who have trouble sleeping, including those with conditions such as stress, anxiety, autism, ADHD, and PTSD. The Tranquility Weighted Blanket features a plush top fabric and a cool microfiber underside to keep you comfortable. For the best results, you should select a weight that is 8% to 12% of your total body weight.
This blanket has been great for sleeping. The 18 pds seems to be just about right (I am 5'9" and about 150 pounds). The only downside to this blanket is that there doesn't seem to be a good way to wash it because of the glass beads. I'm hoping over the next few months it doesn't start to smell. It's the perfect size for one person, but cannot easily be shared between two people. For the price though, I think this was a great purchase and I also got one for my mother in law.
We have enjoyed this blanket, but it CANNOT be washed in a machine, per manufacturers instructions. Others out there on the market can. I suggest considering buying a brand that can be washed, esp if your tween (with stinky feet) will be using it.
The 18lb blanket is very comfortable; reminds me of the lead aprons they use in the dentist's office. Enough weight to make you feel relaxed and it stays in place without being smothering. Only issue is that it's not nearly wide enough for an adult. Since I use it on my bed at night, it would be nice if it actually covered a full sized mattress with a little bit of overhang on either side. 50"x72" or even 54"x72" would be perfect. It is also not washable at all, but that's understandable because of the glass beads that give it the weight. I have 2 large dogs and a cat, so I simply cover the weighted blanket with a larger cotton blanket or a duvet cover and that seems to provide enough protection from any dirt or animal claws that could accidentally tear a hole in the fabric.
