Weighted blankets have been proven to help you relax, feel calmer, and fall asleep much easier. In a recent study, 63% reported lower anxiety after use. Studies have shown that nervous systems calm down when under the weight of a heavy blanket. If anxiety is preventing you from getting quality sleep, this can go a long way toward fixing the problem - and often fix it entirely.

While pursuing a masters degree in marriage and family therapy, Donna, our founder, first noticed the effectiveness of a weighted blanket when she sewed them for clients who suffered from anxiety and reported a sense of relief. Word quickly spread about the blankets and soon Donna had partnered with her son Josh to sell blankets out of their garage.
Donna wanted to create a highest quality blanket possible for others who struggle with anxiety. Each weighted blanket is made from premium fabrics with Polypropylene weighted pellets in individual pockets for even weight distribution.
We partner with Sew For Hope, empowering international refugeesto sew your blanket.
Sew For Hope is a non-profit organization that provides sewing machines and sewing classes for International Refugees that have been resettled in Middle Tennessee.
