This is so lovely! I love the fact that the little beads are sewn into individual pockets, stopping them from gathering all in one place.Louise's ReadingUK
This blanket has been a game changer for me. This blanket has a quilted feel to it, and a nice fleecy cover to go over it. It is very heavy and does not move at all off me.BanjonicUK
If i get cozy underneath it, i drop off in minutes and my body really relaxes, it's quite amazing. I've had a few migraines recently and found it really helped me get into a depp restorative sleep.Mr & Mrs CUK
Whether you're familiar with weighted blankets or not, it's not entirely clear exactly what they do and how they can be beneficial. It's essentially a heavy blanket with a whole bunch of benefits, no matter who you are. They consist of several pockets filled with tiny, weighted objects such as glass beads or pellets. They're sewn together and stitched, allowing the weight to be evenly distributed across the blanket.
The weight can stimulate pressure points throughout your body, signaling it to calm the nervous system. Using a weighted blanket has been compared to receiving a hug from a loved one!
A weighted blanket can bring a sense of calm and relaxation, mimicking the feeling of being hugged. Deep touch pressure from a calming blanket can produce a soothing effect that reduces anxiety and can also help with symptoms of ADHD.
According to a 2020 study,evidence suggests that weighted blankets can help reduce anxiety in people undergoing chemotherapy.
Our weighted blankets come with a washable cover which features internal ties so that the weighted internal part of the blanket stays in place.
You'll simply have to untie the cover and wash for longer lasting use and freshness.
Yes! It's all about the therapeutic pressure the extra weight provides.
A weighted blanket for adults uses deep pressure stimulation, which stimulates serotonin (the happy hormone), reduces cortisol (the stress hormone), and increases levels of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep.
We recommend choosing the weight that's closest to 10% of your body weight. For example, if you weigh 70kg, choose 6.8kg.
The sole purpose of a weighted blanket is to ease anxiety, promote sleep and provide comfort, not to feel restricted. If you feel too restricted or squashed by your weighted blanket, you may not be in the best positioin to relax.

As we know, sleep is a compromised state in which you don't have complete control over things and there are safety precautions to take when using weighted blankets. These are especially important for young children and anyone with underlying health conditions.
Children below the age of four should not use a weighted blanket as this could cause suffocation. Any children over this age should be able to safely remove the blanket without assistance for it to be considered safe. For adults with underlying health conditions, make sure the blanket isn't too heavy and that you or the individual using it can move around without restriction.
As long as you keep these things in mind when purchasing your weighted blanket, they are completely safe to use!
Our blanket can help provide gentle pressures that mimic the effects of cuddling, and other forms of therapeutic tactile sensory inputs that help the body relax.
With that said, it's great to relax before bed time, whether in bed or whilst chilling on the sofa before hand.
Some people love sleeping with them all night or when napping, whilst others stick to using them only when relaxing/lounging.
There's no right or wrong way!
Cosmo "LOVED" it.
"This had a good weight to it; I was a fan. I also loved the cosy cover – it’s perfect now the weather is cooling down, so I felt very snug when curled up on the sofa. The cover was also easy to get on and off, which is not always the case with these blankets, so that was appreciated."
