Waking up in the middle of the night because you are too hot is a horrible thing, especially if you are all sticky and sweaty. Trying to fall back asleep is near impossible and unless you have turned on a fan or opened a window, you are in for a long night. Thankfully for us hot sleepers there is an excellent solution out there, and not just any solution either, this is the best remedy around — It is called the BlanQuil Chill.
The BlanQuil Chill is a specially designed blanket that cleverly regulates your body temperature throughout the night to create a cooler sleeping experience.
This is not just any old blanket, either, this is a weighted blanket.
If you are not familiar with weighted blankets, you have seriously been missing out. They might just be the best invention to improve comfort. Ever.
A weighted blanket is exactly what is sounds like, it is just a large and heavy blanket that weighs about 15 pounds (7kg).
The added mass of the blanket makes it feel like you are being lightly hugged in the most blissful of ways.
Weighted blankets are known to reduce anxiety and stress as well as tossing and turning throughout the night.
This helps achieve a far better nights sleep, leaving you well rested and more energized in the mornings.
The Blanquil Chill is able to provide its magical cooling powers by utilizing a proprietary fabric that dissipates body heat to create a more personalized sleeping experience.
The fabric is able to do the same thing for moisture as well to help ensure a sweat-free sleep.
BlanQuil says that this blanket’s unique design actually makes it feel cool to the touch.
These weighted blankets gain their extra mass from thousands of miniature glass beads securely held inside of the fabric.
The heft of this blanket provides an effect called ‘Deep Touch Stimulation’ “by gently distributing even pressure across your body.
It creates an instant feeling of calm and relaxation while reducing stress and increasing serotonin.” BlanQuil comments on their website.
“Use of a BlanQuil mimics the familiar feeling of a good cuddle session, being hugged or held.”
The BlanQuil Chill does not leave much to be desired. Of course high quality and comfort is accompanied by a high price tag, though.
If you want to purchase one of these blankets it is going to set you back $300 (₤265). That is one expensive blanket!
But do not panic just yet! For $130 cheaper you can purchase a standard non-cooling variant.
The price of this luxury blanket is surely justified in its extreme comfort and high quality, though.
The biggest issue with weighted blankets is that they are too good at keeping the heat in, that is why BlanQuil has invented the Chill. It has the magical properties of a weighted banket without the excessive heat! You can browse all of BlanQuil’s products here or check out their competitors here. Proceed with caution, though. Once you buy a weighted blanket you might never be able to sleep without it!
