Sounds like a great product. But your website is awful:
1. Your site focuses more on Elizabeth Shannon then the actual product. Put your ego aside – focus on the blanket instead.
2. There doesn’t seem to be any way to actually purchase the blanket… do you sell through retail partners? if so, list them. Do you sell online? If so, provide a link. I eventually gave up trying to find a way to purchase your blanket, then discovered that Brookstone offers something similar (dual-zone comforter) AND has a link to let you easily buy it online.
I don’t know how many opportuities you’re losing by having such an awful website – perhaps you’re wealthy enough not to care?

Hi, and thanks for your comment.

Totally agree the website is not good! It needs a complete makeover – I get that. Thanks for reminding me anyway. My life is far from perfection!

Here is the page to find out more about the blanket and to buy it if you wish.
http://compatibilityblanket.com/buy-blanket

No I don’t sell through retail partners, this is the only place to get one. Recently I had inquiries from a major outlet in the US, but the freight costs from Australia did not suit their system of distribution at the moment.

The product at Brookstone differs to the Compatibility Blanket in that it is a comforter/doona/duvet – which might be OK in winter and very cold weather, but I see significant limitations on its use for most of the year in many warmer climates of the world – especially for the partner that feels the heat.

Our research indicates that with similar products (I’m not sure exactly about that one) many couples don’t feel a significant difference between the two sides of the comforter/doona/duvet option and that it is not suitable on warmer and hotter nights.

Temperatures over 32 degrees C are starting to reduce the amount of REM sleep you get during your sleep. 32 degrees C is actually quite cool, and significantly less than body temperature of 37 degrees C. This emphasizes the importance of your bed-coverings.

The Compatibility Blanket has natural pure cotton sheeting on one half – for the hot person, and natural pure merino/woollen blanketing on the other half – for the partner that feels the cold.

As it gets colder in winter you can layer whatever you use on top of the Compatibility Blanket. This way, one half is always cooler than the other.

Thanks again for your feedback
Hope this helps
Elizabeth
