Acting much like a tight hug, the Slumber Weighted Blanket will help you calm down and relax, guaranteeing a good night's sleep.
The Slumber Weighted Blanket is packed with tiny, hypo-allergenic, environmentally friendly glass beads measuring 0.9-1.1mm in diameter.
The resulting delicate yet firm pressure reaches the deep-seated receptors and helps with the release of serotonin and endorphins, chemicals that our body naturally produces to make us feel calm and relaxed.
This all makes the Slumber Weighted Blanket the perfect sleeping companion for people suffering with insomnia or for people with sensory integration and psychomotor disorders such as autism and ADHD.
We recommend that our blanket be approximately 10% of your body weight. Please note these blankets are not suitable for babies.

The science behind the benefits.
The science behind why you should use a heavy blanket is actually very simple - it is a term called deep touch pressure (DTP).
This is where you gently apply pressure to the body which aids the natural release of serotonin.
Serotonin is sometimes called the happy chemical, because its release is linked with and contributes to happiness, well-being and relaxation.
Using a weighted blanket has been proven to not only make you get to sleep faster, but also ensures a more restful and deep sleep, making you feel rejuventated in the morning.
How heavy should my weighted blanket be?
It's a common question that we get, and the answer is actually fairly simple, however it does vary depending on who will be using the blanket.
We would recommend that our blanket be approximately 10% of the user's body weight. This is where the blanket will be most effective and produce the best results.
It is important to note that our weighted blankets are not suitable for newborn babies or toddlers for health and safety reasons. This is because the blanket will be too heavy for them to move.
As well as this, with a 2.5 tog rating, our Slumber Weighted Blanket is perfect for use all year round, so you don't have to worry about getting too hot in the warm Summer months.
Who will benefit the most from a sensory blanket?
A weighted blanket can benefit everyone, but there are certain people who may get more out of using one.
If you have a sleeping disorder or insomnia, the gentle pressure applied by a weighted blanket can help you to relax far quicker, allowing you to drift off to sleep easier.
Another common use of a weighted blanket is to help treat anxiety. Deep touch pressure helps reduce autonomic arousal, which is responsible for many of the physical symptoms of anxiety.
People with autism and ADHD also tend to struggle sleeping; a weighted blanket can provide the feeling of a tight hug (deep pressure therapy), helping with relaxation and improving the chances of a good nights' sleep.
