This Cooling Weighted Blanket Is Perfect for Summers in the South
Meet the BlanQuiil Chill.
Perhaps you have that one friend who swears by weighted blankets to help them fall and stay asleep. Maybe you overheard someone talking about them at the gym. Maybe Cousin Rikki adores her weighted blanket so much she has one for the guest room.
But here's the thing: You get really hot when you sleep, and the idea of throwing a heavy blanket over yourself is far from appealing. That's why we were thrilled to come across this review from House Beautiful for the BlanQuill Chill Cooling Weighted Blanket, ideal for so-called "hot sleepers."
As writer Alyssa Fiorentino describes it, "You know that amazing feeling when you flip over your pillow and realizing the other side is delightfully cool? That's what this blanket feels like. You'll realize why they call it the Chill the second you pull it out of the box." The machine-washable blanket remains cold for the first 15-20 minutes you get into bed and — according to BlanQuil —offers the user "deep pressure stimulation" thanks to its heft.
While Fiorentino notes that the silky fabric may fall off your bed at night (for her, it happened once in the three weeks she tested it), she also notes this could be a benefit for overheated sleepers who kick their blankets off in the middle of the night.
