Alpha Body Fitted Weighted Blanket

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-12-13

Achieve the most beneficial sleep and rest with the Alpha Body Fitted Weighted Blanket. This blanket stands out in the weighted blanket industry thanks to the body fit design and its innovative filler inside. The company actually engineered their glass beads to deliver all the benefits without the bulk. The Alpha Blanket provides a weight that conforms to your body to help relieve stress and anxiety, help you sleep, and to deliver overall relaxation. In addition, this innovative bead design is 60% thinner than other weighted blankets on the market. Furthermore, the Alpha Blanket comes in four different sizes to customize the experience. You can choose between 10, 15, 20, or 25 lbs. Pairing with the comforting weight of the glass beads is an exceptionally soft cotton exterior. Incredibly, the combined technology delivers a cooling sensation in the summer and a breathable warmth in the winter.

I am backer 483 and have not received my blankets yet, nor any notice of shipping. Would you please confirm that you have my pledge and when it will ship? I pledged for two blankets using a Backerclub discount.

Review from Kickstarter
I still haven’t received my blankets, haven’t gotten a shipment notification & have not received notification about an incorrect address.
Any idea when I will receive my order?
Kyle Hart
Review from Kickstarter
Just like Liz de Masi, my label was created on 6/12. It still says it hasn't been picked up. When will it ship? The original email with the tracking number said delivery would be 6/19, obviously that didn't happen.

Review from Kickstarter
I've had my blanket for over a week now. I'm liking it so far! The scent was not to my liking, but it aired out quickly so that's ok. It wasn't overwhelming for me. I suppose some were stronger than others? Anyway I'm really happy with it! Now I just need care instructions. How do you wash it? Is it really ok to put a heavy blanket in a washer?

Review from Kickstarter
You said blankets with shipping labels were picked up yesterday and today. My label was created 6/12 and it still waiting for pick up. When will my package actually ship?
Ivana Designs
Review from Kickstarter
Hi everyone, thank you of your amazing support and patience. Most of the printed labels have been picked up by UPS yesterday and some of them will be picked up today. We will also be contacting the backers who did not receive a shipping label and clarify the shipping addresses or needed information. ❤️ We are super excited for all of you to receive your Alpha. @SJizzle - We are glad you love our fragrance. ❤️We are looking into making Alpha's fragrance available on our store. We will contact you immediately once available. You might find fragrances with similar/same flower combinations. Please have a sniff before purchasing since the combination of amount of flowers might be different which will create a different fragrance.

@Alpha I think I may have found it. Is it called "Bombshells in Bloom" by Victoria's Secret?
SJizzle
Review from Kickstarter
@Alpha Is it possible to buy the scent? If so, from where? I still try to catch a whiff of it from the box! (it's mainly dissipated from the blanket now).

Review from Kickstarter
Been using mine for about a week! Best sleep ever! Baffles me with some of the negative comments, like the scent stinks. Some people you can’t please no matter what. They’ve posted a way to air it out if you don’t like the way it smells, by the way it adds to the relaxed state you’ll be in. Love this blanket. So fortunate that it also keeps you cool in the Florida summers, with a/c on of course at same degree normally kept. Thanks Alpha!

Review from Kickstarter
I am with Liz, why does it take a week to get it to UPS if you have already created the label?
Liz de Masi
Review from Kickstarter
My shipping label was created on 6/12 and I got a UPS notification saying "Ready for UPS pickup" and it was estimated to arrive today. And it hasn't even been picked up today. Can I please get an updated?
Melissa Ann Pistorius
Review from Kickstarter
Has anyone else, who had received their blanket, felt that one side of the blanket weighs significantly more than the other? Like I'm laying with it on and my left side is more weighted down than the right. @Alpha is that the way it's supposed to be?
Ty Broady
Review from Kickstarter
Just curious on the shipping? Label created on 12th with claim of arrival by 14th. As of late on the 15th, no change in shipping status.
And now I read about an unwanted smell. I hope it does not set off my migraines. I can not go within 50 feet of a bath n body works or a lush bath salt scrub place without getting a lightheaded feeling and eventual migraine. Seems like Lavender would have been a much better choice over the ultra sweet smells being described.

Review from Kickstarter
The perfume stinks.

Review from Kickstarter
I too am wondering why I haven't received any shipping info yet after the latest update stated that all orders with a good address have shipped.
Hubert Wong
Review from Kickstarter
Saw the news that 80% of the orders have been completed and I'm wondering that as backer #219 why mine hasn't shipped yet. Checked my shipping info and all seems to be in order.

Got mine yesterday and used it right away, it kept me cool throughout the night. I am grateful to the creators as this has given me the best sleep I've had in such a long time. May you continue to have success.

Review from Kickstarter
As much as I love this blanket, and sleeping much better with it. I do have one major issue. My cats love it too. And trying to get out of bed with a 25lb blanket, and then another 30lbs of cats on my chest, is proving to be incredibly difficult. I may just stay in bed. This is fine.
Emily
Review from Kickstarter
You guys scented the blanked without telling your customers?! What on earth were you thinking? Apart from the obvious health-adverse effects (headaches, respiratory problems, etc.), who says a given person will like the scent you picked? Tastes vary a lot regarding scents! Now, please, what is the best way to get rid of the scent?
I’m hoping I won’t actually have to pay for professional services.

When will I receive my weighted blankets?

Thank you for your valuable feedback. We will defiantly consider it for our future shipments. We are glad you have received your Alpha. We hope you will enjoy the blanket and have many happy mornings! ❤️
Cheryl Petrochko
Review from Kickstarter
Like others, I was not happy that the blanket was scented. I usually avoid most perfume because it tends to give me headaches and makes me sneeze. I feel like I should get the blanket laundered right away. Not good! :(
Peter Kumbalek
Review from Kickstarter
Received the blanket. The scent is unexpected and overwhelming. It is stinking up the house. Why would you do this without notification. Sadly it will be quite some time before it is well aired out and I will be able to use. And it appears that the gift and care instructions are only for persons that are a part of the Apple environment.

Problem solved. I also like the fragrance.

Review from Kickstarter
Has anyone actually weighed the blanket they received? My order was for a 15lb blanket and mine is 19.8lbs. I was having a conversation with the company and when I informed them of this they have stopped talking to me. I don't have money to waste.
Ralph Bigio
Review from Kickstarter
Nice blanket. What the hell is wrong with you people? DO NOT USE FRAGRANCE UNLESS YOU WARN PEOPLE FIRST! You have a product that is supposed to be helpful to people and you douse it in a smell? My house now stinks. I am extremely sensitive to chemicals. Which is something you said you gave careful consideration in constructing this product. I recommend you stop with the perfume! You might actually kill someone! Sorry to be so angry. It is a wonderful product. You should have known better than to cover it in chemicals!
Andrew Liebmann
Review from Kickstarter
Got mine yesterday, it's wonderful. Not super existed about the fragrance. As the first successful project I've backed I have to say this was a great experience. Thank you for all the wonderful updates and good luck with the future of the Alpha blanket.

Review from Kickstarter
No conformation number yet..... 13 days please update. I am trying to be patient but, it is running out. Please update.
SJizzle
Review from Kickstarter
Seriously, though. What was the fragrance used? I really like it!
K Humphrey
Review from Kickstarter
Received! Really enjoying it EXCEPT for the...perfume? Huh? Making my asthma flare. Not a great touch, y'all. It's like being weighted down in the fragrance department at Macy's.
SJizzle
Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine today! Feel heavy and nice. The box was a nice touch, as was the fragrance. Might be bad for some people with allergies, though (I enjoyed it). What was the scent? No idea how it will hold up over time, or after a washing, but so far, it feels pretty good! I have a friend that got a weighted blanket from ebay, for a few bucks less, and it weighs 20 lbs, but seems just as thin as the Alpha. Nonetheless, mine was the 25lb version, and it's just as thin.
Brandie Greenwood
Review from Kickstarter
Woo Hoo!!! Got mine today. I'm so excited I'm gonna take a nap.

Review from Kickstarter
As a backer of another *popular* weighted blanket on Kickstarter, the Alpha team has managed this project quite well in comparison - leaps and bounds better, with just the right amount of comms with professional tone and valuable updates. This goes a long way in creating a positive customer/backer experience. Plus, a strong likelihood of referral business. Received a tracking number yesterday. ETA on west coast is end of day tomorrow, Friday, June 8.

I just got a shipping notification yesterday from UPS for a package from PLX Devices Inc (20 pounds) San Jose California. I wonder if this is it? Scheduled for delivery by the end of the day on the 13th.

I just got my shipping notice!! I’m so excited!! Delivery is scheduled for 6/13!

Has anyone received a shipping notification? I have not! I know it says two weeks, I'm just being super impatient!

Review from Kickstarter
Great! What were cleaning instructions? How do we wash the blanket safely?
Ivana Designs
Review from Kickstarter
Hi everyone, thank you for communicating and sharing the comments. Yes, that is correct the blanket have arrived at our warehouse. We are super excited for you to receive your Alphas. Detailed update will follow shortly. Thank you all for your amazing support and patience. Lots of love! ❤️
Angel Ruppert-Stratton
Review from Kickstarter
I received an email on May 14th that after a shipping delay, blankets were expected to be received between 2-14 days and that an email would be sent once the blanket was shipped. I have not received an email nor have I received the blanket. When can I expect to receive it? Thanks in advance for your speedy reply!

Review from Kickstarter
(Sorry - Christina basically said the same thing yesterday. My apologies.)
Bobby Alcott
Review from Kickstarter
I’ve been involved with almost 100 campaigns now, and I can tell you that 99% of comments relate to only two things: lack of communication and delays in delivering rewards.
I’ve seen better than Alpha in these regards, but mostly I’ve seen much worse.
Let’s give these folks a break, and I have a feeling they will come through soon.
Sarah Chattin
Review from Kickstarter
I apologize and retract my comment - I didn’t see there was an update in the comments on the update.
Christina Knop
Review from Kickstarter
For everyone that is conserved with communication. I've been part of a Kickstarter, where there has been a lot less communication. Ivana Designs will at least post and give us an update vs. complete silence.
Michel Kristen Coffey
Review from Kickstarter
For those of you that might have missed this, I just noticed the following was posted yesterday in the comment section of the last update May 14th by Ivana Designs. "Dear backers, the blanket have arrived at our warehouse. We are crafting a new update with more details. Thank you all for your amazing support and patience. Lots of love! ❤️" Hopefully more info coming very soon. Communication is key in Kickstarter.
Sarah Chattin
Review from Kickstarter
I agree with the others. We all spent a lot of money to support this project, and I think everyone understands that things come up, but this extreme lack of communication doesn’t say anything good about your customer service.
Cassandra Johnson
Review from Kickstarter
I realize I am joining a chorus here, but it's the end of May and no notice about anything actually shipping. I understand you are busy, but it seems like a quick comment with information wouldn't be that difficult.

Hi Ivana Team. Any updated on where and when backer can receive our item and detail about it as well?
