    Meet Andy...

    Andy purchased a Sleep Heavy blanket for her son, who is on the Autism spectrum.

    Before using a Sleep Heavy blanket, Andy’s son would find it hard to settle in the evenings and get to sleep. Nights of restlessness, discomfort and stress lead to days of fatigue, sensitivity and difficulty.

    Our Sleep Heavy weighted blanket helped Andy’s son get the deep, calm, interrupted sleep he deserves so that he could be his best self at school and throughout the day. 

    Andy purchased her blanket for her son, but she admits she’s used it herself to help her unwind after a long day...

    "“The blanket is super soft and I think that’s why I’ve found it so relaxing, that along with the weight… It just has a super calming feel to it."

      Loving the 9kg of extra weight!

      Words I didn’t think would ever come out of my mouth - but I love having that extra weight over me at night. It’s so pleasant to sleep with. The silky smooth cover feels great on the skin and it keeps you both warm enough - yet cool enough - to have a restful sleep. Loving it.

      Need more time or to take it away

      I am un decided atm. I purchased for myself. I have used for 7 days in a row I think i should now take it away. My partner however loves it so I am glad I at least got the larger size so he can enjoy. Maybe send another survey in a week or so.

      Bamboo King Sensory Blanket

      I received my Bamboo Blanket 9kg a couple of weeks back. It has soon become my go to, and best inanimate object friend. I’ve been able to use the blanket with my mental awareness exercises. The benefits have been instant with stress and anxiety greatly reduced. No major panic attack’s. AS for my sleep. I live with Chronic restless leg syndrome. The blanket has been remarkable in reducing muscle tension. The Fabric is wonderful for sensory input. I really can’t recommend these high enough for mental and physical well being

      experience with purchasing blanket was excellent - easy website, great communication, arrived within short time frame. First experience with weighted blanket - it is alot heavier than I expected. Bought for my son who's gifted but he hated it, felt claustrophobic. But I'm using it and like it. Not sure how it'll feel as nights get warmer, time will tell

      Kicking myself that I didn't buy one sooner

      I have always been a bad sleeper, for most of my adult life. I finally bit the bullet after another spell of bad sleep and lots of anxiety in bed, and bought this weighted blanket. It is fantastic, I sleep so much better already, and it's only been a week. I still don't sleep perfectly, that's not really my aim, but I am getting far more sleep, and the feelings of anxiety I was having before have basically gone with this blanket. I got the largest size for our bed, and even my partner, who rarely has a bad sleep, said he feels like he is sleeping deeper.

      Does what it says!!

      Gone from an average of 2-3hrs sleep a night to an average of 6-7 in the space of 2wks. The rare nights I don't get much sleep I still get up feeling rested. A worthy investment.


      What weight should I get?

      We have a quick and easy weight guide that can help you determine which blanket is perfect for you. If you have further questions about which weight to go for, feel free to email us on support@sleepheavy.co.nz or phone 0800 120 729. We’re always here to chat. 

      I’m a hot sleeper, will Sleep Heavy blankets make me overheat?

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

      Can I return/exchange my blanket if I get the wrong weight?

      Yes, of course, so long that it’s within 30 days. Simply request an exchange and our courier will collect your blanket from your door, return it for you and deliver the right size.

      How long does shipping take?

      Your blanket will be dispatched from our Christchurch warehouse, and will be with you within 2-3 business days. Rural areas may take a day or two longer.

      How will a Sleep Heavy weighted blanket help with my anxiety?

      Our weighted blankets use a method called Deep Pressure Stimulation. The weight from your blanket encourages your body to make the switch from fight or flight to rest and digest, bringing a sense of calm and peace to your mind and body.
