What are the benefits
of weighted blankets?

Alleviate Anxiety

According to Harvard Medical School research, "sleep problems affect more than 50% of adult patients with generalised anxiety disorder". Having anxiety can cause sleeping problems and make it difficult to sleep, but sleep deprivation can also trigger anxiety. Weighted blankets can help break this poor sleep cycle by providing physiological and psychological benefits that help alleviate anxiety.

Weighted blankets provide these benefits through Deep Touch Pressure (DTP), DTP is a therapeutic method to relax the nervous system and achieve an overall sense of calm and peace.

Ease Insomnia

Comforts & Calms Children with Autism

The first known use of weighted blankets was to lessen negative symptoms for those with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). The blankets were used to mimic touch therapy by administering a squeezing/hugging feeling which Temple Gradin found was effective in calming patients with ADS. Further research from Harvard show that touch therapy can relieve ailments like muscle spasms and social anxiety. A weighted blanket may provide similar effects.

On sleep in children with ASD, the study Weighted Blankets and Sleep in Autistic Children—A Randomized Controlled Trial did not find objective results of improved sleep with use of a weighted blanket, however, subjective measures found that parents and children both preferred the weighted blanket, possibly picking up on benefits that were not measured by the researchers.

Weighted blanket FAQs

Does a weighted blanket replace my duvet?

Yes, you can use your weighted blanket as your main/only blanket just like a duvet.

During especially cold nights/months, you may wish to have more warmth, in this case, we recommend putting another warm layer on top of the weighted blanket, having your weighted blanket as the layer closest to your body will give you the most benefits of Deep Touch Pressure Therapy.

See all FAQs here

How do I wash it?

Both the weighted blanket and cover are machine washable.

The cover can be easily removed and is very light so it easy to wash. The blanket should be washed on its own. Check with you washing machine capacity before washing the 7kg or 9kg blanket.

Both are made of natural fabrics so should be washed on a gentle cycle and hung to dry.
