For the Ultimate in Warmth, Comfort & Security
When it comes to our Down & Cotton Quilted Blanket, you get a much more substantial down-filled blanket than the 2-3 lbs that most in this category weigh. Ours are much denser at 5.9 lbs to 7.8 lbs (depending on the size). And, they’re very fluffy, with a high air-to-weight ratio.
Next, is our Anchor Weighted Blanket. It has a silky, soft microfiber cover, and is filled with glass beads, aimed at de-stressing through DTP (Deep Touch Pressure). Being enveloped in this blanket increases endorphins, and has a calming, organizing effect on the nervous system. For anyone with auditory, sensory, or physical sensitivities, glass beads are a soothing choice. The beads glide soundlessly and smoothly, staying cool, and thus regulating your temperature. The sizes start at 5 lb Petite, and go all the way to 20 lb Queen.
