My Koala Weighted Blanket Experience

My new best friend!

Needing to know what all the hype was about, I got myself a weighted blanket. Like you, reading this article now, I did my research. I wanted a high quality weighted blanket that promised me all the amazing benefits every weighted blanket claims: better sleep, less anxiety and stress. This is my well-being we’re talking about, and I don’t know about you, but I want the best.

The Koala Therapeutic Weighted Blanket has been highly regarded in such publications as Women’s Health, GQ Britain, Good Housekeeping and The Telegraph

Most of the top weighted blankets lists named the Koala Therapeutic Weighted Blanket, not always at the top, but the consistency in which it was named in the top 5 intrigued me. Nothing gets named that often unless it’s a well liked, solid product. 

The Koala Therapeutic Weighted Blanket

The Koala weighted blanket comes in two different sizes and three different weights, so you can easily find a size and weight perfect for you. I chose the smaller, 48”x78” and the weight of 6.8kg. When I received my Koala, I was pleased by the packaging. Both the weighted duvet and cover comes in a nice box with the logo. The blanket fits perfectly in the cover with ties to keep the blanket in place. 

A Great Deal

I got my Koala weighted blanket for only £79.00 with voucher code TRANQUIL10. That’s a steal for a weighted blanket with this kind of quality. Plus, Koala offered free shipping. In fact, I believe this deal is still on.

Koala's Current deal: You pay only £79 with voucher code TRANQUIL10.

For Hot and Cold Sleepers

2 Sides of the Koala Blanket Cover

The best part about my Koala weighted blanket was how its cover had two sides. The quality of the cover was great too, and I enjoyed how it had a soft mink side and a smooth bamboo side. Choices are nice. An ultra-soft minky side for when I wanted to feel cosy and warm, and a silky bamboo side for when I was feeling too warm. As a hot sleeper the silky bamboo side was perfect for me. Normally I wake up in the middle of night because I’m way too hot, but I had no trouble falling asleep quickly and staying asleep.

Easy to Care For

At first, I thought it was pretty daunting washing the cover and then tying the blanket back inside, but I was surprised by how easy it was. The ties are perfect because it keeps the blanket in place inside the cover. Even my regular duvet doesn’t stay still in its duvet cover, so the fact that Koala has thought of this is great.

Improved my Sleep

Life Changing Sleep!

After spending a few nights sleeping under my Koala weighted blanket, I have to say it’s done wonders for my sleep schedule. Before, I used to wake up at least 3-4 times a night. I’m surprised by how often I sleep completely through the night now. Sometimes I even take my Koala weighted blanket to the couch when I read because I like the comforting feel it gives me.

Final Thoughts

Improved my sleep and helped reduce my stress!

Honestly, after spending a week with my Koala weighted blanket I’ve been sold on the hype surrounding weighted blankets and their claims about improving sleep, helping with anxiety and stress. For me, weighted blankets are all they’re cracked up to be. I’ve felt a lot calmer after one week of using one and I like the way it feels wrapped around my body. I like it so much, I use mine as much as possible

I think everyone should invest in a solid weighted blanket. And if you want the best, you should invest in a Koala weighted blanket.
