Weighted blankets are unique as instead of being filled with cotton or down, it contains materials like glass beads to make them heavier. This weight is evenly distributed across the body for a deep touch pressure, akin to a gentle hug to make you feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable. We’ve designed it with smaller compartments for a more even weight distribution while providing a balance of warmth and breathability.
If you prefer something lighter or airy, check out our 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell duvet instead.
For individual use
As a general rule of thumb, our recommendation is to select a blanket weight that’s roughly 10% of the intended user’s body weight for individual use.
Sharing with a partner
For couples who would like to share the use of a single weighted blanket, the general guideline is to choose a blanket weight that’s roughly 7% of the combined weight. Do keep in mind these considerations if you are thinking of sharing a blanket:
Firstly, the weight of each individual should not differ too much. Too much of a difference may lead to unequal weight distribution which results in limited effectiveness. We recommend getting separate blankets for optimal effect.
Secondly, if there is a difference in sleeping styles. Do one of you prefer to be warm and snuggled up at night where the other prefers the cooling breeze from the air conditioner? If the sleeping styles between both of you do not match, sharing might not be suitable and an individual one would suffice.
Some helpful tips
Tip 1: If you're using this for general use, without specific conditions, we recommend going with a lower weight option. If you experience sleep-related conditions like insomnia or anxiety, selecting the weight based on the 10% guideline could help you experience a greater benefit from a heavier weight.
Tip 2: If you’re in between sizes, we recommend selecting the lower of the weight options.
Tip 3: The weighted blanket is designed to provide pressure across your body, hence it is okay if it does not fit your mattress size! The blanket should lay on top of the bed without hanging over at the sides. Like any change to a sleeping environment, it can take a while for both your body and mind to adjust to the blanket. While it may feel unnatural at first, give yourself sufficient time and you will soon be able to experience its wonders!
To ensure you are getting the best results from your Weighted Blanket, you will need to choose the correct size (& weight) and use it correctly. It’s important to ease into the use of your Weighted Blanket.

Once again, sleeping under a weight may feel unnatural for you at first so do give yourself sufficient time to get used to it! Typically it would take around 1-2 weeks for one to get fully accustomed to it, though it varies for every individual.
