My daughter has not had a complete night sleep in 5 years. The very first night she used the blanket she was asleep within 15 min and only woke up once during the night. She normally wakes up at least once an hour. Not sure why this works but it does.
My wife has really enjoyed the first week with this weighted blanket. She says she is sleeping more soundly and securely and that she has woken up feeling considerably more rested.
The build quality seems fair, I hope the blanket stands up to the rigors of time. There are duvet cover loops on the blanket, but I have no idea where you could purchase a cover with such odd dimensions off the rack.
I purchased this for my daughter for Christmas. She has been using it for less than 2 weeks and the seams are coming a part causing the beads to fall to the sides. Very disappointed because for the first few days she loved it but not the weight is not evenly distributed.
