One of the perks of this job is that I sometimes receive products to review on my site.
I’m careful in what I review, however, and I’m especially careful when it comes to an endorsement. That is because my primary mission is not to endorse or represents products, but to help women who are having issues with perimenopause.
But, every now and then a product comes along that I absolutely love and well, that’s when I do the happy dance and want to tell you about it. Which is exactly how I feel about a blanket by a new company, Mullberry West, makers of the silk-filled, luxury cotton bedding. Yeah, I know, I can hear ya’ll now: “Um, a blanket, Mags? Seriously?” Yes, ladies. Seriously. Now hear me out.
Lana Abrams, Founder of Mullberry West and also the designer and developer of the Mullberry West blankets contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I wouldn’t mind endorsing her products on my site. After explaining my policy on product endorsements, Lana asked if she could send me a sample. She was confident that once I saw and experienced her blanket, I would love it. And let me tell you, she was right.
Look, I don’t want come across all QVC or anything, gushing over this blanket. But, I LOVE this product! First of all, when Lana said she would send a sample, what I expected was, you know, a sample. I didn’t expect a queen size, luxurious blanket that I could put on my bed and wallow in. But, that’s exactly what she sent. And wallow I have. But, enough about me, check out this blanket and a special offer from Mulberry West for the readers of The Perimenopause Blog !
According to Mulberry West’s website the silk-filled, cotton blanket is:
Naturally hypoallergenic & anti-bacterial
Extremely light weight
Comfortable to sleep with during menopause
Easy to clean
Wicks away moisture
Adjusts to your body temperature
Does not bunch or shift
What does this translate into? How about a richly, luxurious blanket filled with mulberry silk fibers trimmed with an elegant satin?
The Mulberry silk comes from the cocoons of silk worms, according to Mulberry West, which have fed on mulberry leaves.
The cocoon’s silk filaments are stretched into a flat web of silk floss which are stacked, then sealed inside cotton fabric.
The recommended cleaning for the Mulberry West blankets is spot-cleaning and airing it outside. You can also dry clean if you wish.
And listen, ladies, with travel season right around the corner and lots of hotel stays, you will also be delighted to know that the Mulberry West blankets are bed bug repellent.
“It’s the natural protein called sericin,” says Lana, “only found in the silk that bed bugs don’t like.”
In addition, Mulberry West products come with a 10 year warranty from the date of purchase to protect against defects and to guarantee workmanship along with free shipping.
If you’re interested in the blanket ladies, I’m here to stand behind it. It’s not only comfortable and easy to sleep under in both warm and cold weather, it’s just gorgeous and makes you feel like a million bucks when you crawl under it. I can’t recommend it enough.
