This weighted blanket is 'like being hugged to sleep' — and it's over 50% off, from $24

·3-min read

If trying to get a night of deep, refreshing sleep leaves you a sweaty, overheated mess, it's time to rethink your bedding situation. Sometimes, switching out one thing can make all the difference in comfort — and in this case, we're suggesting you ditch your current duvet and replace it with a product that's flooded with accolades over at Amazon. The top-selling Quility Cooling Weighted Blanket is like a warm hug that lulls you to sleep, but it's also a high-tech cooling blanket, comprised of seven cozy layers including a cotton outer layer that regulates your temperature and keeps you comfy as you snooze. Some 36,000 customers are getting such quality R&R that they've given it the five-star seal of approval — and right now, most sizes are over 50% off! Some styles are even 70% off.

The Quility weighted blanket is insanely soft — it even comes with a machine washable "minky" duvet cover. It's like butter against your skin, the perfect touch to keep you fast asleep.

The blanket uses 7 to 30 pounds of evenly distributed glass beads (aim to buy one that's about 10% of your body weight) to ground your nervous system and essentially swaddle you like a baby, providing relief for anxiety, chronic pain, fitful sleep styles and just about any reason you might be seeking a higher standard of shut-eye. You'll actually feel refreshed when you wake up.

And this is scientifically proven. Studies have shown that weighted blankets relieve stress by increasing melatonin and serotonin and decreasing cortisol, the stress hormone. At night, it helps decrease movement and keep you in a deep, restorative REM cycle, giving you the kind of sleep your body craves.

Beyond its weighting properties, though, the Quility blanket is superior in terms of cooling capabilities, because it manages to be cozy without trapping heat. This fan attested, "I get the weight I was subconsciously trying to get with five layers of blankets, and because I only need the one I don’t wake up hot."

"I woke up this morning having slept eight hours without waking up. That is epic for me," wrote an impressed shopper. "The blanket itself is really nice, the duvet gives it a luxurious feel. It is heavy if you lift it (the whole blanket); it is not heavy as you lie under it. I didn't overheat at all, just warm and cozy."

"I've been sleeping with it now for two weeks and can honestly say I've never slept so well in years! I fall asleep almost immediately. No more tossing and turning. I thought it would be too hot, but haven't experienced any discomfort in that area. It truly is like being hugged to sleep," wrote another five-star reviewer.
