What makes Gravid different from other weighted blanket companies?
Simple answer: premium materials and innovative design.
Gravid weighted blankets are made using 100% Tencel Lyocell; an eco-friendly, renewable, high-tenacity fibre which gives it high strength properties. It is softer than cotton, has a luxurious sheen and is extremely breathable. It is also naturally anti-bacterial and gentle on the skin.
For weight, Gravid weighted blankets use non-toxic, micro-rounded glass beads that have a diameter of 1mm. This is the optimal size of bead to keep the weight evenly distributed across the surface of your body. Glass beads are the best material for people with any type of auditory, sensory or physical sensitivities. They are quiet, making them ideal in a bedroom setting.
We invented ZipperTech: A zipper mechanism that goes around the full perimeter of your blanket to keep your Gravid weighted blanket perfectly attached to its cover. No sagging, no bunching.
Gravid weighted blankets also feature a double-stitched grid design along with 7-layer construction to ensure the weight stays evenly distributed for a lifetime. No leaking beads, no shifting weight...ever.
What is the return policy?
Once you receive your blanket, you have 101 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 a week 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.
