Why It’s Not Absurd to Buy a Blanket in the Summer


Summers are hot. We get it. Here in Fort Wayne, we have had a sweltering July. With temperatures like these, you don’t typically think about getting blankets, especially weighted blankets, but what if we told you that now is the best time to try one?

That’s right- smack in the middle of the dog days of summer, purchasing a weighted blanket is a great idea. Here’s why:

Weighted blankets are not any warmer than a regular blanket.

It’s easy to conclude that more weight equals more heat, but that’s just not true. What makes other bulky blankets warmer than thin blankets is the capacity to retain heat. In other words, your grandma’s quilt isn’t warm because it’s heavier; it’s warm because she stuffed it with fabric that traps your body heat. For the same reason, you would never buy a winter coat without an inner lining, because that extremely thin, slick fabric is the difference between a warm coat and an impractical garment.

CapeAble Weighted Blankets do not trap body heat. Our tiny glass bead filling allows air circulation. With air circulation, natural physics will takes its course, replacing the warm air near your body with the cooler air above and around your blanket.

Don’t believe us? Now is the time to put it to the test! Anxiety and insomnia don’t stop just because the weather is warmer, and if you want to invest in a weighted blanket, you’ll want one that you can use all year. Don’t wait to try it this winter if you aren’t sure that you will like it in the summer. We offer a 100-day satisfaction guarantee- that’s 14 weeks! You can spend the rest of the summer and most of the fall deciding whether or not you like it. If you don’t like your blanket, send it back for a full refund.
