Your Adventures in Sleep Need This Product – A Performance Blanket!

It’s a cross trainer for the sleeper…perfect for any activity! From blanket forts to bedtime comfort, advancements in technical textiles allow us to reimagine comfort and versatility in a familiar product that can do it all. Add a performance blanket to your bedroom now!

When creating your perfect sleep environment, a blanket may not be the first bedding product to come to mind on your list of priorities. Many people, unfamiliar with the benefits of a blanket, might view this type of bedding as a way to dress their bed, but not much more. It’s a nice layer of comfort to add warmth on a chilly night, or a way to add a little fashion to the décor on occasion, but that’s really it, right? While this is pretty common thinking, today, with advancements in technical fibers and yarns, there’s a new generation of performance blankets with smart features including temperature balancing qualities ready to help keep you dry and comfortable during any activity - watching TV, reading, and of course while sleeping!

It’s not a secret I happen to have a love affair with blankets. A good quality blanket has many amazing uses, and will bring years of happy feelings to anyone who owns them. Here are my top three favorite uses for blankets:

1. Comfort in all seasons – A blanket is designed for lightweight breathable comfort, with a very low loft that makes it the perfect layer to add a touch of extra warmth to your comforter in the fall or winter, and be your main source of cuddling in the spring and summer.

2. Fashion for the bed – As someone who enjoys changing up looks with clothes and make-up, investing in a blanket gives you the opportunity to create new looks for your bed without having to invest in new decorative pieces. A few ideas are to layer your blanket under or over your comforter, or creatively fold it at the foot or head of the bed.

3. Favorite in the family room – The snuggle is real! We are all spending more time at home, and a blanket is the perfect companion for a night in. A queen blanket will be significantly larger than a throw, but not as heavy and bulky as a comforter – the perfect cuddling size to fit across two people for a movie date night. Extra tall? A blanket has got you covered on the couch! Of course, any size blanket is perfect for those sleepover forts or to create a plush sleep environment for backyard camping! When not in use, blankets will fold up neatly and compactly for easy storage.

Now here’s where it gets really exciting for blanket lovers! Introducing the latest performance driven blanket on the market that combines comfort with quality. The Sleep Number® True Temp™ Down Alternative blanket incorporates my top three favorite uses with 37.5® technology designed to help you stay at your ideal temperature longer. Hiding in plain sight is a host of powerful temperature balancing features to help you hit your sleep goals – and so much more!

37.5® Technology is a revolutionary material originally used in outdoor apparel brands including Rab®, Under Armour®, Adidas®, and Thermarest® for its odor and temperature control. Essentially, the technology incorporates naturally derived, active particles to keep your body at the ideal temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius and keeps the microclimate of your skin at the ideal humidity of 37.5 percent. Active particles embedded in 37.5 Technology remove sweat while it is still in vapor stage, therefore cooling you down before you get overheated. Feeling cold? The same particles trap your energy to warm you up.

The construction of the True Temp™ blanket incorporates 37.5® Technology in the fabric and the fill, uniquely optimizing your comfort from the inside out. Best yet, since the active particles work independently to keep your personal body temperature cool and dry, that means a hot sleeper and a cold sleeper can find perfect harmony with one blanket. When it comes down to it, the True Temp Down Alternative blanket is really such an amazing value and investment! The quality in its fabric and the resourcefulness of its many uses cannot be compared to – it has created its own category.

While the functional components of the blanket are what really make it great, this product has a fashionable aspect to it as well. This blanket is great for layering with other fashion bedding products. It is available in five gorgeous colors, with coordinating piping and a narrow rectangle quilt pattern that gives the blanket a very modern and clean look. Add a little functionality and fashion to your bedroom today!

The True Temp® blanket from Sleep Number is too valuable not to have, and has too many uses to not be useful. This could be the last blanket you ever need to buy…but you can never have too many blankets, right? Check it out now before they are all gone!
