My sleep number is 7.
At my age, soft and cushy gets the job done.
Truth be told I don’t really have a sleep number, just a hand me down bed I let my parents share with me. There’s no telling the amount of dead skin cells, human hair and microscopic critters I’m forced to lay on every night.
So imagine how excited I was when I was contacted by a representative of Sleep Number® to see if I’d be interested in reviewing their True Silver Blanket.
For those not in the know, this is a blanket that is said to provide natural allergy defense due to its silver fibers, offering superior protection against dust mites and pet dander.
I don’t know why anyone would complain about pet fur but since I’m all about comfort I thought I’d give it a try. Besides, our household, with a slew of dogs and one cat is the perfect laboratory to see if this blanket can really stand up to its claims.
First, let me tell you a bit about the Sleep Number True Silver Blanket:
Pure silver fibers are woven into the blanket, which offer anti-microbial, anti-odor and anti-static benefits (that’s three check marks against the fur and allergies.)
The True Silver fiber is also part of the fill and has a natural allergy protection which will never wash or wear out which means the blanket can take the abuse and still stand the test of time.
It also has a 300-thread-count cotton sateen cover (can you saysoftness!), and quilted stitching so the fill inside stays where it’s meant to be.
The blanket comes in three colors, we chose eggshell, a nice creamy off white.It also comes in beige and light blue and is neutral enough to fit in with any décor. No word on the release date of a blanket in my favorite color, diahhrea delight, but I digress.
The blanket is very soft against my fur and also extremely lightweight which is great since I’m not fond of heavy covers. Although lightweight it does a good job keeping you warm when it’s cool and cool when it’s warm. It’s magic, I tell you.
My bro and sis, two adopted Bernese Mountain dogs, are in shedding season so there is a lot of fur on our blanket. The great thing is that the fur comes off easily. So easy, in fact, the old man said he’s probably going to do his next furminator session on it.
Anyway, my mother being a neat freak, has already washed the blanket and because it’s so lightweight, took no time to dry and came out looking just like new.
Since we’ve only had the blanket a week I haven’t really had time to assess the natural allergy defense but I can confidently state this blanket is very comfortable against these old bones. Very comfortable! I know all my siblings like snuggling on it too. Just look at the picture to see. If you’re wondering, I’m the one behind the camera taking the picture.
Based on my experience with this blanket, I have to give it four paws up. I’d give it five but I’m not a freaky dog with five legs.
The best part is that one lucky winner has the chance to win their very own True Silver Blanket, a value worth up to $199!
