Quick Summary

The Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket is the brainchild of Sharper Image, an American high-end lifestyle brand. True to the Sharper Image style, the Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket is a sophisticated product designed to enhance relaxation and quality of sleep.

The Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket works by distributing weight evenly over your whole body, thereby working to boost serotonin and melatonin levels, according to research. The increased production of these two natural chemicals is believed to simulate what the company refers to as Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation (DTPS), a process that helps regulate mood while promoting relaxation and restful sleep.

The Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket features a soft, hypoallergenic velveteen shell made from brushed fleece. Sewn into the blanket are high-density, BPA-Free microbeads, stitched into squares to ensure an even distribution throughout the blanket.

The Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket is offered in a wide range variety of weights, including 6, 10, 15, 20, and 25 lbs. The blankets also come in different sizes: the 6 and 10 lb blankets are  41″ x 60″ (slightly smaller than a twin size blanket), while the others are 50″ x 75″ (slightly smaller than a queen size blanket). For best results, the company recommends choosing a blanket that is between 8 and 12 percent of your body weight. For those between weights, choosing a lower weight is recommended.

Inner Fill Material

The Calming Comfort Weighted is filled with BPA-free, dense plastic microbeads sandwiched between polyester stuffing for extra softness. Plastic beads are generally less breathable and contouring than glass beads due to their larger construction.

Breathability

As a soft, lightweight fabric, the velveteen fabric provides good breathability. However, plastic beads tend to have inferior airflow to glass.

Durability

As a relatively new product, there is no hard data regarding the longevity of the Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket. However, veleveteen doesn’t have a strong reputation for being long-lasting, and some users have reported loose beads.

Overall, this blanket comes features a solid design and provides a good sleeping experience. Though the inner beads are plastic instead of glass, their smaller size makes them more breathable and contouring than most plastic beads. If you’re a fan of a fleece feel, you’ll probably love the outer shell of this blanket.

However, the brushed fleece shell isn’t the most durable of fabrics that we’ve seen among competing weighted blankets. Similarly, the Calming Comfort Weighted Blanket requires somewhat extra effort to clean when used without a duvet, as it is spot-clean only.
