I was given one last Christmas. 10 pound weight IIRC. I like it because it usually stays on me. I live with one of those ladies who locks the thermostat for our bedroom climate zone at 60 from the first sign of spring until we hit freezing temperatures at night. The weighted blanket has replaced one of the two comforters I used to use along with a heavy wool blanket that would scratch me if it got up around my neck or face. I have an irrational fear of electric blankets that makes those not an option.
