Loose threads and poor stitching
Didn't think the first thing I'd do with my $200+ blanket would be fixing loose threads and poor stitching.. on both the cover and blanket itself! The zip is of poor quality and also has stitching coming loose. I've only just opened the package and have yet to try sleeping with it but this first impression is hardly great considering the price.

King too heavy. Try a cheaper alternative first.
We purchased a super king to fit out bed and met the combined weight suggestion. It came with what looks like an oil stain right in the middle but at the time I wasn't worried because it came with the bamboo case to cover it up (however considering how much we paid, it's really not acceptable). It would have been nice to receive 2 bamboo pillow cases with the king cover, so strange that it doesn't considering it's for 2 people and you can't even buy separately if you wanted to.
I do love the intention of these blankets and would love to say we...

Poorly made and doesn't last
While initially delighted with the blanket, after 12 months it has become apparent that there is a design flaw. After a time, the glass beads redistribute between the squares so some are bulging and others empty. Especially at the edges and in the middle (I had a Queen size shared between 2 people). Also the beads began to leak out of the blanket between the stitches.
Response from customer service although prompt was unhelpful. Apparently 2 months out of warranty is too long to do anything. Will try another brand for my next purchase.

Very heavy. Returned it.
Received as a gift (bamboo blanket). The 7kg weight was too heavy, even though it was 10% of my body weight. I found I had aches in my legs after using. It didn't improve my sleep. It is nice and warm and it didn't move. We returned it and received full refund.

Amazing nights sleep but size an issue
Once I got used to sleeping under the weight I get an amazing nights sleep. However was a bit disappointed with the size. It’s supposed to be a queen blanket but you would struggle to have two people sleeping under it on a queen sized bed.

These seem great at first but the stitching used to seal the beads in pockets isn't adequate at containing them after prolonged use. Both myself and my partner bought one. Both blankets got extremely lumpy within 6 months with the beads migrating away from the centre of the blanket toward the edges. One blanket even had the tiny beads leaking into the outer cover so that even removing the cover became a messy experience.
After contacting support they shipped us two replacement blankets. We were hoping they were just from a bad batch, but the new blankets are suffering the same fate after just another 6 months.
They were great at first but just don't seem to be built to last.

Poorly designed and not worth the price tag.
The weighted beads inside the blanket always pool together making the blanket extremely lumpy. While the beads are stitched into small pockets, appears to be poorly stitched and beads move from pocket to pocket.
As for the sleeping better factor, have not noticed any improvement in my sleep.
Site either has issues or its intentionally blocks lower star reviews, left a 4 or 5 star for the blanket cover and and 2 star for the blanket itself, only the higher star review is posted. Which makes me wonder if that is the reason why the site is near...ly only 4 or 5 star reviews. Also from the last few months of viewing the site, seems the blankets are always 50% off, guessing it's a dodgy marketing tactic to make people hurry up with buying. Would say from my experience this is not worth the money and I would have been much better off buying one from ebay or another site like it for 25% of the "normal" price.

Decent but expensive
Bought during the Autumn ($125 discount) sale and took a punt on getting the blanket due to good reviews, also got the Summer cover. The blanket is good, you will miss it if you don't use it for a night. However for me the price it just a bit too much - even with the discount
Update (2020): Downgraded to 3 stars as I find that I no longer have much of a use for this blanket, effectively making it useless to me despite the high cost.

Making a difference
I think I might have got a blanket that was a little too heavy. It is making a difference - but not as much as I was hoping. Will give it time.

Feels nice but sleep hasn't improved
The weight of the blanket is comfortable and I like the cosiness of it especially in winter but my sleep habits have not changed. I still go to sleep easily but don't stay asleep for more than an hour or two and then have difficulty getting back to sleep; therefore feel tired during the day. I had been hopeful that the Therapy blanket would be helpful but not so.
Questions & Answers
Therapy blanket is all round season? I’m in Victoria thanks Silvia
Hi Silvia, thank you for your inquiry! Yes, correct and we have two different kinds of materials to choose from to better suit your preference for the blankets namely Adaptive Series and Bamboo Series.
Adaptive Series - also known as our all-year blanket for its cover that is made up of buttery-soft, micro plush side that helps keep one warm and the other side made of Bamboo that is cool to the feeling. The fabric of its inner blanket is also pure cotton. (https://therapyblanket.com.au/products/therapy-blanket)
Bamboo Series - this option is more breathable and perfect for areas that have warmer weather or for users who sleep hot and tend to sweat more in their sleep. The fabric is pure Bamboo from its cover down to its inner blanket, making it more breathable. Have I also mentioned that this comes with a free pillowcase? Definitely cool! (https://therapyblanket.com.au/products/therapy-bamboo-weighted-blanket)
You may also buy an extra cover as desired so you may enjoy both worlds! Let us know should you need at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
Have emailed and put in an online question regarding where my blanket is that I ordered with express postage and have not received any responses. Getting very worried about being scammed.
I don't think you have anything to worry about. They are super busy and a small company. I found them very professional.
Could anyone advise do we need to wash the cover before we first use?

This product is rated highly by reviewers who enjoy the heavy tucked in feeling. Some reviewers complained that the beads redistributed with use and eventually began to leak out between the stitches.
