Sleep is so important. Babies need it when they’re little so they can grow, growing children continue to need it so they can also grow, and adults need it mostly to preserve their sanity. All joking aside, the bottom line is that sleep is vital and necessary for all of us. And there’s one thing you can add to your bed to enhance your sleep: a super comfortable, soft blanket. Now, we’re not talking about just any blanket–a minky blanket. Imagine having a king-size blanket to go with your king-size bed. How luxurious and soft and wonderful! Don’t have a king-size bed?
