Verdict: If price factor is not a criterion, Gravity Blanket, the world’s most popular weighted blanket, scores over the other two here.
It is made from premium-grade soft materials. It has an ultra-soft micro-fiber duvet as its exterior and 100% cotton as its inner shell.
It is made of 100% breathable cotton material.
It’s not mentioned clearly what material Blanquil is made of, except that it is breathable, very soft to touch and has a washable outer cover.
Verdict: If you like to be indulged with sheer softness while sleeping, Gravity Blanket or Blanquil would be the preferred options. However, price factor would give Blanquil an edge here since Gravity Blanket is way too expensive.
Micro beads (high-density plastic poly pellets) strewn into the grid-like pattern of the exterior. They focus on pressure points on your body and distribute weight evenly.
Glass beads sewn into individual pockets and surrounded by soft, light fiber fill to eliminate noisy shifting while you sleep
