Our blankets use a method of relaxation called deep pressure stimulation. As firm but breathable pressure is applied to the body, the nervous system calms, muscles relax and feel good hormones are released. This deep sense of calm and and comfort can be highly beneficial for those who have trouble sleeping and those with higher stress levels. Learn more about how our blankets work here

We have a quick and easy weight guide that can help you determine which blanket is perfect for you. If you pick a weight and it’s not quite right, you can exchange it for a different weight. You’ll be refunded or have to pay the difference, depending on the weight you exchange for.  If you have further questions about which blanket to go for, feel free to email us at support@sleepheavy.co.nz or text 021 423 989. We’re always here to chat. 

Both our cotton and mink covers are removable and machine washable, holding their quality and softness with each wash. We recommend using a gentle cycle and air drying. If you’d like to wash your weighed inner, hand wash with cold water and air dry. 

Not at all. Although our blankets are heavy, they’re designed to be ultra-breathable, especially our cotton blankets. Cotton helps regulate your body temperature by absorbing and retaining heat from your body, keeping you the perfect temperature all night long.
