Materials and Construction
The Modernist X Gravity blanket is made with cotton. The blanket is weighted using fine-grade glass beads that are non-toxic and noiseless.
Grid-style stitching spreads the beads across the blanket, ensuring the blanket hugs you evenly. The grids also keep the beads from shifting.
The other cover is also made with cotton, specifically a 300-thread count cotton fabric. It's not the softest materials, but the cover is breathable and does a great job absorbing sweat from your skin.
To keep the cover from coming off, it's attached to the inner blanket using ties and buttons.
For washing, just remove the outer cover and throw it in a washing machine. Tumble dry on low.
As for the inner blanket, you must hand-wash and air-dry it. But it only needs to be done every few months.
Comfort and Weight
The cotton blanket and duvet cover feel soft to the touch, but under pressure it can feel a bit rough.
Thanks to the grid stitching, there is no issue with the blanket bunching up at the corners or weight shifting to one side.
As for cooling, the Modernist X Gravity blanket sleeps cooler than most other weighted blankets and comforters. Some hot sleepers may still find it a tad too warm on some nights, but most sleepers will appreciate it.
The Modernist X Gravity blanket is also great for folks with night sweats. The cotton duvet cover absorbs sweat, keeping your skin cool and dry.
We tested the single 15 lb single blanket. Get this size if you sleep alone or if your partner doesn't want to use a weighted blanket.
The queen/king option is perfect for couples.
Both blankets are ideal for sleepers that weight between 100 and 200 lbs.
If you struggle to fall asleep because of anxiety, insomnia, or high-stress levels, the Modernist X Gravity blanket will help.
I suffer from anxiety and it definitely helped me sleep better.
It lowered my stress levels, helped me relax and controlled my nervous-nelly restless legs.
