“I I should have got one years ago! Such a deep truly restful sleep, everyone should have one of these! The anxiety of the day is no longer troubling me through my sleep, such a life saver!”
-- VW F, a Sleep Heavy customer.

    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."

      Oh My Goodness!! Amazing! Everything they said it would be. It’s so soothing. It honestly feels like you’re being held in a warm embrace. We’re looking forward to when the bigger size arrives

      Weighted blanket for the win

      Blanket is wonderful and cosy. I have had great sleeps with it, and love it! Service was also great with a prompt delivery. The grey mink cover has a warmish, green/blue tinge to it rather than being a cool tone grey, just as an FYI.

      Hasn’t turned uo

      Product shipped over a month ago and has not arrived. Contacted the courier company and am still waiting for a response. Although I understand this is a courier issue and not a product issue I contacted Sleep Heavy a week ago and have not received a response. I have however received many emails asking for feedback and reviews. Poor form guys.

      Sleep Heavy Weighted Blanket

      Why did I wait so long ????? Best sleep ever no more pills Great NZ Company to deal with Thanks Cory

      It’s great

      Great product, good delivery. The cover was just too challenging to put on, maybe cos I have the heavy blanket, a sheet stays in place easily with the blanket on top. It feels like someone made your bed with super tight blankets the old fashioned way. Super snug. My friend said it’s like being hugged. Definitely like the natural materials.

      Grey Mink Weighted Blanket

      Love this blanket. Have had the best & relaxing sleeps, would highly recommend.


      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. 

      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 cotton and bamboo blankets. Cotton and bamboo helps 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.
