 Our silky soft fabric is like a luxurious embrace.

Sleep doesn't always come easy.

What are Weighted Blankets?

Weighted blankets relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.


Reduce Anxiety and Stress

The sensory input of Deep Touch Pressure increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases cortisol levels in the brain - producing a feeling of calm and promoting restful sleep.


Foster Restful Sleep

Weighted blankets help you sleep better.  They have been shown to reduce feelings of anxiety.  Ballast Blankets mimic the sensation of being hugged or embraced to help you sleep better and sleep longer.


Increase Happy Hormones

Ballast Blankets can increase endorphin levels (happy hormones) which decreases heart rate and blood pressure.


Deep Touch Pressure

Deep Touch Pressure is a form of tactile sensory input (i.e.  holding,  stroking, cuddling and hugging) that increases endorphin levels.


Lovingly Crafted to Last

Ballast Blankets are machine washable.

What Weight Should I Choose?

8-12% of your body weight should be perfect. For example, if you're 160 lbs, then the 15 lbs Ballast blanket will be perfect for you. 

If you think you'd like a heavier weight, then you're probably right


Luxurious Comfort (that's easy to care for)

Both the cover and inside weighted duvet are machine washable.  Tumble dry cold.

The outer cover is removable for quick washes.

The weighted duvet is tied to the cover with multiple ties and loops to make sure it stays connected.

The weighted duvet is 100% cotton with the weight evenly distributed in pockets so it doesn't shift.

The weight filling is odourless, non-toxic glass micro-beads.  They are durable, washer / dryer safe, and pet and kid friendly.
