Hi Sherrine: I received a weighted blanket for Christmas last year. I didn't know anything about
them! But especially in the cooler months, it's a nice extra layer, though it seems I have to keep it on the upper part of my body; I tend to get spasms anywhere on my legs that it covers. My body is just too fussy, I guess!
. I do try to slowly "add" it to the middle part of me, but mostly if it's on my shoulder area, it feels great and does seem to help my sleep.
I am looking into adding a heated blanket, though (have a post about
this). Hopefully I can order one soon. It just gets too cold here in the upper Midwest, so I need all the warm I can get!
