What is a Weighted Blanket?
A weighted blanket is in essence, a blanket with extra weight in it.
Weighted blankets provide deep touch pressure or DTP. DTP is about gently applying pressure to the body to increase the release of serotonin, a chemical in the body that promotes relaxation.
PrettySpecial Weighted Blankets are made of 100% pure cotton and are filled with Eco friendly Pellets, which are non-toxic. This provides deep pressure touch stimulation without any uncomfortable restrictions. The pressure from the weight causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins, chemicals our bodies naturally use to feel relaxed or calm.
