Don’t mind me; I’ll just be on the couch forever.
Gone are the days of summer when we were using all things cooling to sleep better—that is, cooling sheets, cooling comforters, and cooling weighted blankets. Colder temperatures may signal the start of fall activities and the season of the puffer coat, but they also mean you can officially start embracing all things cozy.
In case you haven’t jumped on the weighted blankets bandwagon yet, Gravity Blanket—the brand behind the original weighted blanket, which has sold more than 165,000 blankets since its 2017 launch—just released your new favorite weighted option for fall and winter.
Because of the heavy filling, weighted blankets are known for promoting Deep Touch Pressure, which stimulates relaxation as it increases serotonin and melatonin levels. So, whether you’re using a weighted blanket after a long, stressful day or need one to help calm anxious thoughts as you try to fall asleep, they’re essentially the ultimate tool for comfort that feels like a big bear hug. Gravity’s new option for winter is a weighted blanket, but better.
On one side of Gravity’s weighted throw, there’s a sumptuous sherpa fabric, and the other side features a buffalo check pattern that exudes cozy-chic style. Weighing just 10 pounds (compared to Gravity’s other weighted blanket options that are available in either 15, 20, or 25 pounds), it’s a weighted throw that’s easier to snuggle up with on the couch because you won’t be struggling to lift it if you need to get up or readjust. Although lighter, the new (and machine-washable!) blanket is just as large as the signature Gravity Blanket (72” x 48”).
Whether you’re looking for that new couch cuddle buddy or have been wanting to try out weighted blankets while you sleep, Gravity’s new sherpa blanket is a great option to start with for winter. Below, shop the new weighted throw on sale for 25 percent off with the code HOLIDAY2019 until December 31. While only available for pre-order right now, the blanket will be ready to ship on the week of November 25. You’ll know where to find us after that—bundled up under our new favorite weighted blanket!
