My wife immediately loved her new blanket and has been sleeping really well for the past few days (thank god!). It's well made and very comfortable (In fact, I wish I had one for myself). I've researched others and couldn't find anything else as nice- and affordable. I also received my order on time and the packaging was excellent.- Eric, Kirkland

So, why choose a weighted blanket? Our blankets are created using evenly spaced weighted beads, which are covered in a soft luxurious fabric. This combination produces the sensation of a warm hug, stimulating the natural production of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a naturally produced chemical that regulates your moods and decreases levels of anxiety. Imagine returning home after a long strenuous day at the office and wrapping yourself in a cozy hug. Or better yet, comforting your child after a bad dream, with a blanket that resembles your warm hug.
The science behind our blankets is sound; research has shown positive results by those who have used weighted blankets to improve sleep, reduce stress, and calm anxious children. Here are a few of the reasons our customers tried weighted blankets.
Anxiety: Everybody deals with stress at some point in their lives, but chronic anxiety issues have a way of making everything in life seem a little more stressful. Weighted blankets aren’t a cure-all, and if you’re having trouble with anxiety, you should speak to your doctor. However, you can use weighted blankets to ease symptoms and find a happy place when things get hectic. Many doctors will prescribe weighted blankets to patients who are experiencing anxiety induced issues, such as panic attacks. The blanket helps create a safe space, wrapping you in a cocoon of protection, until sensations pass.
Insomnia: Sleep disorders such as insomnia can be brought on for many reasons. Sometimes insomnia is related to stress, other times it could be due to biological imbalances or irregular sleep routines. A weighted blanket can help increase the amount and quality of sleep you get each night, by promoting comfort and relaxation. Focusing on the weight of the blanket, rather than the weight of the world and all the stressors in your life can help you fall asleep and stay asleep. Weighted blankets are particularly useful for children who suffer from bad dreams, or have problems falling asleep in their own bed.
Changes at Home: Many people have trouble with change, especially children with special needs. A weighted blanket can help make transitional periods easier. Whether there has been a change in the family unit following a divorce, or you’re simply moving from one house to another, having a weighted blanket will help retain some semblance of normalcy and comfort for your child, no matter what other life changes may be occurring around them.
Special Needs: Children with ADHD and Autism have been especially receptive to weighted blankets and other weighted items as a method of coping with sensory issues. Many children with these disorders don’t like being touched. A weighted blanket delivers all the warming sensations of a hug without a child needing to be touched. It also provides a feeling of safety and security in any setting.
Rather than reading about all the ways a weighted blanket can change your life, we invite you to try one for yourself. Our blankets come in a variety of sizes and colors, with an easy to understand chart that can help you determine what weight and length is best for you and your loved ones. Weighted blankets are typically 10% of your ideal body weight, plus a pound or two. Your ideal body weight means the weight that you should reside at based on your height and bone structure. If you’re unsure what your ideal weight is, ask your doctor.
