Weighted blankets come in various forms, but their main purpose is to produce the sensation of Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS). Other forms of DPTS include swaddling, hugging, holding, or a massage, and reduces feelings of anxiety, which leads to a sense of calm and relaxation.
Users of weighted blankets often find it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.
Traditional weighted blankets are filled heat-conducting glass micro-beads that shift and may even spill out if the outer shell is torn. Combined with the woven outer shell, these blankets can trap body heat and get too warm to sleep under in tropical weather. A powerful air conditioner set to a low temperature could help with this problem, but at the expense of a higher electricity bill and harm to the environment.
The knit construction of our weighted blanket allows for plenty of airflow so that it is suitable for hot weather – even with just a fan running to keep you cool while you sleep. The PP filling that gives our blankets their weight and volume also ensures that the weight is evenly distributed across the blanket. As an added bonus, squeezing the chunky loops of the blanket between your fingers may also help to reduce stress.
Those suffering from certain conditions, including obstructive sleep apnea, asthma and claustrophobia should exercise caution when considering using a weighted blanket. If you suffer from any of these conditions, you may wish to consult a medical professional before purchasing a weighted blanket.
Our blankets are meant for young adult/adult use only. Toddlers under the age of 2 are at risk of suffocation and should be kept away from weighted blankets.
For those without these pre-existing conditions, there are very few risks involved when using a weighted blanket.
We recommend completely unfolding your blanket and leaving it in a well-ventilated area for 24 hours to air out, which will allow it to come to shape and any odours from the manufacturing process to dissipate. Just like with brand new clothes, you may wish to wash your blanket before use.

Sleeping under a heavy blanket may not be a sensation that you will immediately be comfortable with. We recommend slowly introducing your body to sleeping under a weighted blanket by putting it over just your legs to start for the first few nights, then gradually pulling it up to cover you. The time it takes to get used to sleeping under a weighted blanket varies from person to person, but it may take anywhere from a week to three weeks or more. Take your time and don’t rush into it.
Piling is an expected occurrence due to the nature of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres and will eventually appear on your weighted blanket as you use it. The shorter fibres of TENCEL™ are what make it so incredibly soft, but this is also why it will pill more quickly than other materials. The rate of piling may be accelerated depending on how the blanket is washed and the fabrication of your bedsheets.
To reduce the rate of piling, follow our care instructions.
