Innovative Materials

Our Bamboo Covers are made from 100% Bamboo Lyocell

It is a dream to lay in this luxe super-fabric that is softer, cooler and more sustainable than any other fabric.

Bamboo Lyocell is a patented closed-loop process, meaning 99.5% of the inputs are captured and reused in continuous processing resulting in almost zero waste and making it the world's most sustainable fabric available- and is even 100% biodegradable.

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

Weighted blankets are well known for their positive effects on insomnia as many people find them to be helpful in inducing sleep and improving sleep quality.

A 2015 study from the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, University of Gothenburg, Sweden says "Objectively, we found that sleep bout time increased, as well as a decrease in movements of the participants, during weighted blanket use. Subjectively, the participants liked sleeping with the blanket, found it easier to settle down to sleep and had an improved sleep, where they felt more refreshed in the morning. Overall, we found that when the participants used the weighted blanket, they had a calmer night's sleep."

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.
