I never used a weighted blanket but I have bought other Pillow Guy items (pillows, sheets, and comforter) and their products have never let me down, so once they introduced a weighted blanket I had to give it a try. I am blown away on how the weighted blanket changed my life! For many years I had difficulty sleeping through the night, yet since using the PG weighted blanket I haven't woken up even once, if anyone is having a difficult time sleeping I HIGHLY recommend trying this out. Thank you Pillow Guy you've done it again!!
