How do I wash my weighted blanket?

Tumble dry on a low-heat setting. You may need to run your dryer for more than one cycle to complete the drying.

What is the return policy?

Once you receive your blanket, you have 14 Nights to try it out. 


The Gravid Weighted Blanket uses deep touch pressure stimulation to help you relax and drift to sleep. However, it can take some time for your body to completely adjust to your new weighted blanket. 


We recommend that you ease into it by using it a few hours at a time (while watching TV, reading a book, etc...) before using it for a full nights rest. 


We highly recommend you sleep with it for at least 7 nights to give your body a chance to adjust. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the item, ship it back to us and we'll refund you 100% of your purchase price.

What are the key benefits of using a weighted blanket? 

Improves Sleep Quality: The pressure from the weighted blanket helps those who have trouble falling asleep. It enhances the feeling of being hugged or held, which increases serotonin and melatonin levels while decreasing cortisol levels, thereby improving overall sleep quality.


Anxiety and Stress Relief: The deep touch pressure provided by weighted blankets offers a calming effect similar to a warm hug, which can reduce anxiety and stress at bedtime or any time relaxation is needed.


Enhances Mood: Poor sleep impairs health, memory, mood, and more. By increasing serotonin levels, weighted blankets can improve mood and promote a sense of well-being and better sleep.


Supports Deep REM Sleep: The comforting pressure encourages deeper REM sleep cycles, ensuring more restorative sleep. 


Eases Restlessness: For individuals who experience restless leg syndrome or general restlessness at night, the blanket’s weight can provide a soothing, grounding effect.

Everything You Need to Know About Weighted Blankets


What is a Weighted Blanket?

A weighted blanket is a type of heavy blanket designed to provide gentle, even pressure across the body. This pressure, known as deep pressure stimulation (DPS), is similar to the sensation of being hugged or held and can have calming effects on the nervous system.


Benefits of Weighted Blankets
Improved Sleep

Using a weighted blanket can significantly improve sleep quality. The gentle pressure can help increase serotonin and melatonin levels while reducing cortisol levels, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Anxiety Reduction

Weighted blankets are effective in reducing anxiety. The deep pressure stimulation provided by these blankets can help calm the nervous system, leading to reduced feelings of anxiety and stress.

Sensory Disorder Relief

For individuals with sensory processing disorders, such as autism or ADHD, a weighted blanket can provide a calming effect. The pressure from the blanket helps to regulate sensory input and promote relaxation.


Choosing the Right Weighted Blanket

Weight and Size

Selecting the right weight for a weighted blanket is crucial. It should be about 10% of your body weight. For example, a person weighing 150 pounds should use a 15-pound blanket. Weighted blankets come in various sizes, including twin, queen, and king, to match different bed sizes.

Material

Weighted blankets are made from various materials, including cotton, fleece, and bamboo. Cotton is breathable and suitable for all seasons, fleece provides warmth, and bamboo offers cooling properties.

Fillings

The weight in weighted blankets comes from fillings like glass beads, plastic pellets, or natural materials. Glass beads are small and dense, providing even weight distribution, while plastic pellets are larger and more affordable.


Caring for Your Weighted Blanket

Washing

Most weighted blankets are machine washable. Use a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent. For larger blankets, consider using a commercial washer.

Drying

Air drying is recommended for weighted blankets to maintain their structure. If using a dryer, use a low heat setting.


Uses of Weighted Blankets

Sleep Improvement

Many people use weighted blankets to improve their sleep quality. The deep pressure stimulation helps to relax the body and mind, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Stress Relief

Weighted blankets are also used for stress relief. The pressure from the blanket can help to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation.

Sensory Therapy

In therapeutic settings, weighted blankets are used to help individuals with sensory processing disorders. The blankets provide a calming effect and help to manage sensory overload.


Frequently Asked Questions

What weight should I choose for a weighted blanket?

The weight of a weighted blanket should be about 10% of your body weight. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, a 15-pound blanket is recommended.


Are weighted blankets safe for children?

Yes, but it's important to choose the right weight. Typically, a blanket that is 10% of the child's body weight plus one or two pounds is ideal.


Can weighted blankets cause overheating?

While weighted blankets can be warm, there are options made from breathable materials like cotton and bamboo, which are suitable for hot sleepers.


How do I wash a weighted blanket?

Most weighted blankets can be machine washed. Use a gentle cycle with cold water and avoid bleach. Air drying is recommended, but you can also use a dryer on a low heat setting.
