Kmart is now selling a $49 weighted blanket that rivals some brands that cost up to six times the price.

The budget therapeutic polyester blankets measuring 1.5m x 2m, are available in seven kilos for adult body weights between 65 to 85 kilos.

The charcoal-coloured product uses ‘deep touch pressure’ to create a feeling of ‘being hugged’ so sleepers get a better night’s sleep.

But you will want to get in quick. Shoppers report many stores are sold out already.
