I promised an update and here it is... I am hooked! My blanket weighs 17 pounds, so its a little unweilding to get situated, but once in place, it's like a full body hug! The micro-glass beads, pulled down by gravity, fill in all the nooks and crannies between me and the blanket. I at once feel warm, cozy, comfy and strangly very secure! I have slept more soundly for much longer time periods of time. I don't move around as much, so I don't wake myself as often as I did. I feel refreshed, less tired and again secure... almost Zen like! If your curious, give it a shot!
