The Kirkton House blanket, which is priced at £29.99, is said to “aid sleep” and “have a calming effect”. The 7kg blanket is recommended for adult body weight of approximately 70kg.

The blanket has racked up many five star reviews on the Aldi website, with several shoppers praising it as “brilliant”.

Among the reviews, one shopper said: “Brilliant - just what I wanted. Very heavy, super relaxing. Fantastic product. Just what I wanted. Seems a bit too heavy the first couple of nights I had it on my bed, but you get used to it quick. Makes you feel safe and secure.”

A second wrote: “Fantastic. Great blanket, nice and heavy with the weight evenly distributed. Would recommend!”

A third added: “Best Buy ever. Greatest sleep since getting this, definitely recommend”.

A fourth shopper said: “Weighted blanket. Well made and reasonable price. Comfortable to use and I do feel that I get a better nights sleep.”

Another added: “An absolute winner. I bought this for my middle daughter (26) who suffers terribly with anxiety amongst other issues. As she is so slight I opted for the lighter weighted blanket & it has literally been the best thing I’ve purchased for her.

“The weight is heavy enough to ease her worries but not too weighty she can’t move. Highly recommend if anyone is considering trying one of these out & at this price, they’re an absolute steal! In my/my daughters opinion, it was worth every penny.”

Aldi’s Dark Grey 7kg Weighted Blanket is priced at £29.99 and is available online now.
