Minky weighted blankets create a super soft sensory feeling of comfort. Weighted blankets utilize deep pressure touch which causes a grounded and relaxing sensation in the nervous system, it’s the same science behind why hugs and massages feel so good, and why babies fall asleep when swaddled. Your body weight determines the weight of your blanket. Science shows an incremental rise in serotonin levels and melatonin levels and a reduction in cortisol levels with the sensory input that a minky weighted blanket provides when you're in your bed or on the couch. Serotonin is the happy hormone that makes us fall asleep and get a good night's sleep. Our minky fabric is a best-seller because it is so soft and luxurious, what's more, you'll sleep better at night with it!
