An Overview On Weighted Blanket Covers 48x72

Weighted blankets have become very popular and are touted for their ability to help improve sleep. They usually weigh anywhere from 15 to 35 pounds, and they are filled with plastic pellets, tiny glass microbeads or other similar materials. Fans of these blankets claim that the pressure from the weight produces a snuggly, calming effect.

Since they are so heavy, though, weighted blankets are not easy to wash. That’s why some companies are selling increasingly popular duvets specifically made for weighted blankets. These covers are designed just for this purpose, and they are different from traditional duvets.

Many weighted blanket duvets have features like extra ties and zippers that make it easier to insert and remove the blankets. Some are made of breathable cotton; some are velvety and plush and others have cooling materials to allow you to use them in all seasons. You can find duvets made of different fabrics on either side for a little variety.

If  you have allergies, look for hypoallergenic duvet covers. After all, the many benefits of a weighted blanket won’t do you any good if you are up all night with a stuffy nose.

DWYM Fun Fact

The first weighted blanket was invented by Keith Zivalich, who was inspired when his daughter dropped a Beanie Baby on his shoulder. The weight felt like a hug, so he tried to capitalize on the idea. He created a bean-filled comforter for children, and called it the “Magic Blanket.” Word spread to the pediatric community, and the blanket was used as a therapeutic device.

The Magic Blanket became popular with kids who had “anxiety and autism-related sensory disorders,” since it was shown to stimulate the release of dopamine and serotonin, which can alleviate stress. This was back in the 1990s, and the idea morphed into weighted blankets for adults in the past few years.
