Casey, I’ve NEVER liked weighted blankets on me at any time of season! Until I saw this pin on Pinterest. When I saw that you have flannel (but I’m drawn to “minky”?!; what kind of fabric is this?! Breathable like cotton and flannel?), AND that you fill with glass beads…I instantly felt that I would be listening to rain as I hugged the blanket around me! Like a rain stick, and real rain, it’s so comforting! When I was little, my mom would sit at a window in our second storey apartment and listen to the rain/storm and watch people below scurry past. I’m now 64 and just now dealing with childhood sexual abuse by my father, and emotional abandonment by my mom. The rain sound and smell is so needed right now! PTSD is becoming my strength, and getting your blanket will help greatly. I can’t get one right now but soon I hope. Thank you is not enough…blessings to you and staff and all who put the blankets together and ship them out. I’ll use my imagination till I can order one!!! Namaste~~~
