The benefits of weighted blankets have been known for several years. Studies show how weighted blankets can decrease stress and improve sleep and relaxation. Aurora is a weighted blanket that provides relief from stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Where other blankets fall short, Aurora goes further with technology that offers antimicrobial features.

By infusing each thread with real copper, users can enjoy the benefits of copper in a natural and safe way. There are so many features to love about the Aurora. The blanket is weighted to stimulate pressure points for improved sleep, mood, and relaxation. When I started using a weighted blanket at night I started waking up more rested than ever before. Science has shown that 63% of users reported lower anxiety after use and weighted blankets induce deep sleep and REM cycles, reducing insomnia and improving quality of sleep.

Aurora takes its weighted blanket to the next level with their luxury materials and copper fiber threading. Instead of weighted beads, Aurora uses a combination of glass beads, copper-infused material and velvet. I didn’t realize copper has been shown to protect against harmful bacteria, which means this blanket can help eliminate bacteria spread. I am the first to admit I don’t wash my blankets as often as I should, so I appreciate knowing Aurora will be constantly cleaning itself. Copper is resistant to bacteria, mold, viruses, mites, fungus, allergens and other things your dog brings in from the backyard.

The blanket is incredibly soft and knowing it will never fade is a huge plus for me. The cover is also machine washable and easy to remove. Aurora comes in three different sizes and four different weight options. The Standard is 48 X 78 in. Queen is 60 X 80 In. King is 76 X 80 in. Customers can choose between a 12lb, 15lb, 20lb, or 25lb blanket. Studies show using a blanket approximately 10% of your body weight is idea, so I appreciate the different options Aurora offers.
