"Sleep Heavy's weighted blanket has been a great help for some of my clients who hove experienced difficulty sleeping and staying calm, and for those who suffer from anxiety.

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."

    Best blanket ever

    Definitely recommend this blanket! It is a bit lighter than your standard filled weighted blanket due to its composition but it's perfect for me. I took it away with me on a trip recently and my friend commented on how cozy it looked and immediately wanted to share it! The forest green colour is gorgeous and complements my bedding so well. I am falling asleep faster now which is a game changer for me as someone who has always struggled with getting enough sleep. The only downside is the price - it's a pricey luxury but one I am so glad I treated myself to.

    Fantastic version of the calming blanket

    Highly highly recommend this. Not only for the awesome way it calms and how cosy and snuggly it is, but also because of how cool and funky and stylish it is. Not something you always get with these types of blankets. It looks and feels amazing. Big too heavy, easy to lie and sleep under. Chunky. Definitely buy.

    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 021 423 989. We’re always here to chat. Our knit blankets currently come in one size and weight - single, 6.8kg (not suitable for young unsupervised children).

    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. You can find out more about how our blankets work here.
