Quietly announces the launch of handmade weighted blankets that will give you the best sleep of your life and make you feel your best. 

Coquitlam, BC, August 17, 2020 - Quietly is excited to announce the launch of our handmade weighted blankets, which create a calm feeling to help you unwind, relax, and fall asleep faster. The official launch for our handmade weighted blankets will be in the early fall 2020 on Kickstarter and will be available in both Canada and the US.  We will offer two types of products, the Cozy and the Traveler.  The Cozy is our regular size blanket and is built to fit the size of your body and comes in three weights, 15lbs, 20lbs, and 25lbs, and will retails as follows: 15 lbs blanket $259 CAD ($196 USD) 20 lbs blanket $269 CAD ($204 USD) 25 lbs blanket $289 CAD ($219 USD) The Traveler is our lighter blanket and is light enough to take with you on the road, weighing only 10lbs, fitting just like a shawl on your shoulders. Retails for $159 CAD ($120 USD). For the best fit, choose the blanket that is about 10% of your body weight.  Right now, stress is at an all-time high with 1 in 3 Canadians feeling anxious and stressed. It’s taking a toll on our mental health and we're exhausted, as we worry about the potential impacts of the pandemic and try to adapt to the changes in our day-to-day lives. People just aren’t able to rest and relax like we once did. This is where Quietly can help. Our handmade weighted blankets are just one more tool you can use to help you unwind and get a better night’s rest.  Michelle Beauregard, Founder, Quietly, “Weighted blankets provide numerous benefits to someone’s health, including people experiencing symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. It’s become one of the top health trends in the last few years, but they’re not just a trend, they're an important medical device that’s been around since the 1990s, originally designed as a therapeutic tool for people living with autism, post-traumatic stress, sensory disorders, and anxiety.”  To celebrate the launch of our product, we’ll be offering a one-time discount of 25 percent off, saving you up to $70 off your blanket. You can get your blanket on Kickstarter when we launch, after Kickstarter you can purchase it through our online store. To get our launch-day deal, sign up on our website at myquietly.com, and reserve your blanket. Limited supply available.  - 30 - For more information, please contact: Michelle BeauregardFounder, Quietly778-766-3347press@myquietly.commyquietly.com
