If you share a bed with someone, you might wonder if it's possible to share a weighted blanket between the two of you. The short answer is yes, you can absolutely share a weighted blanket with your partner! But there are some things to keep in mind.
If you plan to share a weighted blanket with someone, consider these tips:
1. Choose the Right Size
First, it's important to choose the right size and weight of blanket for both of you. Generally, a weighted blanket should be 10% of the user's body weight – so if you and your partner have vastly different body weights, we'd recommend investing in separate blankets. Additionally, make sure the blanket is large enough to comfortably cover both of you without feeling cramped or constrictive. For larger beds, consider purchasing a King Size weighted blanket.
2. Discuss Sleep Preferences
Some people love the feeling of a weighted blanket, while others may find it uncomfortable or want to only use it on part of their body. If one of you is a fan of the blanket and the other isn't, sharing it may not be the best idea. Also, consider how you move during sleep. If one person moves a lot, the blanket could easily slide off of the other person.
3. Compromise on Temperature
Sharing a blanket means compromising on temperature. If one of you runs hot while the other runs cold, you might have to find a happy medium or use separate blankets to ensure that you're both comfortable.
4. Keep Hygiene Top of Mind
Just as with your regular sheets and covers, it's important to wash them regularly to keep them fresh and clean. If two people plan to use the same blanket, we recommend adding a weighted blanket duvet cover to it to protect the blanket itself from stains, damage, or extra need for washing.
Ultimately, whether or not you share a weighted blanket with your partner is a personal decision. As long as you both enjoy the sensation and can comfortably share the blanket, it can be a great way to bond and relax together. Just make sure to choose the right size and weight, keep hygiene in mind, and respect each other's preferences and boundaries.
