Default Weighted Blankets

It's been a few years since this topic came up here so I thought I'd bring it back up.



Does anyone have any experience with weighted blankets?

I know they're expensive (at least for my budget) so I was thinking of making my own. Does anyone happen to know where to find instructions for making a good one that won't get too hot?

I have one and I love it! It weighs 25 pounds. I like it so much I use it year round. I set the AC low so I can use it in the hot weather.

I have one as well and I love it. I bought the biggest and heaviest I could find, lol. It's 25lbs and I also use it year round (I'm also ALWAYS cold so...). They are definitely pricey...

I'm thinking about getting a weighted blanket myself. I've been finding it difficult to sleep at night.
