Frequently Asked Questions
A weighted blanket is a therapeutic blanket filled with layers of breathable fabric and evenly distributed glass microbeads. The blanket moulds itself around your body which simulates deep-pressure therapy similar to the feeling of being hugged, swaddled or held. This has a calming effect and reduces anxiety, improves relaxation and helps you to fall asleep quicker and have a better sleep.
Our weighted blankets are suitable for those who are experiencing stress and anxiety and/or find it hard to get to sleep or stay asleep. Studies have shown that people with insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, hyperactivity and sensory issues such as Autism all benefit from using a weighted blanket. It can also be effective for those experiencing pain and sensitivity due to conditions like back & leg pain, arthritis and fibromyalgia.
We do not recommend that children under 8 use this blanket. Due to the weight of the blanket it should not be used by anyone with breathing issues, claustrophobia, sleep apnoea or epilepsy. If you are pregnant, have a heart condition or are unsure if this product is suitable for you please seek advice from your GP before purchasing.
