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 helps regulate your body temperature by absorbing and retaining heat from your body, keeping you the perfect temperature all night long.

How long does shipping take?

Your blanket will be dispatched from our Christchurch warehouse, and will be with you within 2-5 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.

Amazing results for Alzheimer patient

I purchased the kids size weighted blanket for my Mum who is in a nursing home with Alzheimers. It is a perfect size to use on her in her special chair during the day or on her bed at night. The nursing staff were amazed how much it calms her if she is agitated & I could not recommend it highly enough.

Amazing for adult travel!!

I bought a King size version for my bed at home and freaked out when I was going away for 3 weeks that I wasn't going to be able to sleep! But I purchased the kids blanket and even though the 4.5kg one takes up most of my carry-on luggage, I have traveled to Aus, through 3 different states, and around NZ with it. My friends think I am crazy but it's honestly my favourite travel accessory!! I won't go anywhere without it now! So happy with this purchase!

A great purchase for our sensory room!

The school purchased the mink blanket with sensory dots for our sensory room. It is always out being used and kids like to cuddle up with it on a bean bag. It is great that the cover can be removed and is machine washable. A brilliant buy - very happy with this purchase.

Falling asleep

Since he moved to the big bed he could not fall asleep on his own. We are slowly transitioning him back to the routine and definitely can see the difference after using this weighted blanket, he feels more secure and he fall asleep faster with no assistance. This moose blanket has become his cuddly. Love love and can’t recommend enough. We have the 3.2kg.
