Experience the benefits of sleeping with weight.
- Groundd Blankets are filled with thousands of tiny glass beads that apply a comforting, heavy pressure over the body.
- The weight stimulates the body's parasympathetic nervous system, switching from "fight or flight" mode to "rest and digest".
- This relaxing sensation is called Deep Touch Pressure Therapy and has extensive research behind its medically proven effects for sleep, anxiety, stress and more. Learn more about peer-reviewed reserch here.
- Groundd's breathable materials & thermo-regulating design work to maintain an optimal body temperature throughout the night, essential for longer, uninterrupted sleep cycles.
- The innovative design of using glass beads to provide a heavy weight without excessive warmth that traps body heat, allowing for year round use.
- Sustainability is at the core of our design, materials, and processes
- OEKO-TEX® 100 Certified for harmful checmical free
- Groundd blanket cover is made of 100% Bamboo Lyocell, one of the lowest impact fibres on the planet, the result is a purely organic, non-toxic fabric that is not only environmentally kind but also ideal for sleeping against
- Plastic-free and reusable packaging
What is the best weight & size for me?
Selecting the weight
Choose a weight that is roughly 10% of your body weight- (for example, body weights from 50kg - 80kg can choose a 7kg blanket, body weights over 80kg can choose 9kg+). However it comes down to personal preference and we are happy to swap weights for you if you wish to exchange for a heavier/lighter blanket. Check out our reviews to see feedback from Groundd customers.
About our sizing
To get the most benefits from sleeping with weight, weighted blankets are designed to be concentrated over your body, rather than your bed. So, we recommend using 1 blanket per person and to select the best size for your sleeping needs rather than for your bed size.
Rest assured, all Groundd Sleep products come with a 30 night trial + easy returns and exchanges
How warm is it?
Weight ≠ Warmth
Typical duvet inners, such as feathers, are designed to insulate the body. This is all good in winter, or if you are a cold sleeper, however, most of us need to let some excess heat escape throughout the night in order to maintain a comfortable, consistent temperature.
Groundd blankets are weighted with tiny glass beads that are specifically designed not to trap body heat. Glass does not retain body heat, making it an ideal choice for a heavy, yet cool, blanket that is comfortable for year-round use.
So how warm is a Groundd weighted blanket? The amount of warmth provided from Groundd blankets is simply the breathable 100% cotton blanket shellplus the ultra-light Bamboo cover- similiar to 2 layers of breathable, quality sheeting.
Groundd Weighted Blankets are made for year-round use and comfort. We use breathable, natural materials that regulate body temperature, this means that most people find it cosy and suitable year-round.
Do I use a duvet as well?
Weighted blankets are used exactly like a duvet and most of the time, just replace your duvet. If you want more warmth than the blanket offers, you can use a regular duvet on top of your weighted blanket. We reccomend putting the weighted blanket as the closest layer to your body, like a cocoon, and other layers on top.
