The Black Turtles Weighted Blanket is the perfect mix of beauty and functionality. Weighted Blankets work under the premise of deep touch pressure therapy; and help move the body from the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) to the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and reset). Wolf Creek Creations makes our blankets with a proprietary weight system, making weights easy to remove. This makes all of our blankets laundry machine friendly. In addition to the functionality of these blankets, each one is a work of art in of itself. The Black Turtles Weighted Blanket is made with a one of a kind featured panel paired with beautiful border fabrics. We make a point of using each panel only ONCE, so there are no duplicates. Your blanket is yours alone, and there are no others like it in the world.
