Weight

BENEFITS

Weighted blankets work like a deep tissue massage. The pressure releases serotonin in the body and some of that serotonin becomes melatonin. Melatonin helps us relax and sleep. 💤
 
○ Reduces anxiety
○ Feels like you’re being hugged or held gently
○ Helps you relax
○ Improves your quality of sleep

DETAILS

○ 100% cotton
○ Filled with PVC compound beads
○ Machine washable
 
SIZE:
Our weighted blankets are about the size of a twin blanket. With larger blankets, like a Queen or King size, the weight is wasted on the bed instead of the person receiving the benefit. Our personal-sized blankets are also easier to handle.
○ 42” x 74”
○ Made for individual use

USAGE

FOR SLEEP:
It may take a few nights to get used to the weight and change old patterns. We recommend you try sleeping with your blanket for at least a week and in a few different ways to see how your body is best comforted.
 
○ Place the weighted blanket on top of your comforter, covering your whole body from chest to toes.
○ Use the weighted blanket on top of your sheet, with no comforter.
○ Place the weighted blanket on only the LOWER half of your body.
○ Place the weighted blanket on only the UPPER half of your body.
 
FOR ANXIETY:
Cover yourself with your weighted blanket. Then, intentionally notice each part of your body.
 
○ Start with your feet - notice the pressure of the blanket on your feet.
○ Notice your knees - sometimes squeezing your knees together can help you “get in” your body more.
○ Notice the pressure of the blanket on your torso.
○ Notice the feeling of the weight on your chest and shoulders.

HOW IT'S MADE


Each Weighting Comforts blanket is handmade by a refugee woman in Nashville, Tennessee, creating income for her family. We sew each 5-inch bead pocket with 100% polyester thread for added strength and durability. The weighted beads inside each pocket are made from a FDA-approved, non-irritating PVC compound.

HOW IT WORKS


This weighted blanket is designed to improve your sleep and reduce your anxiety for year-round comfort. Many people experience a deeper and more restful sleep on the first night. Others find the blanket’s weight restrictive at first, but over several nights grow to love the effect of the weight.

It works like a deep tissue massage, similar to the effect of a dentist’s lead blanket, naturally releasing serotonin throughout your body to help you calm down and relax.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS


Our weighted blankets are machine washable on cold or warm, and can be hang dried our dried on tumble dry low. We recommend adding a few towels to even out the weight.
