FAQ’S

Frequently Asked Questions

Weighted blankets are throw-sized blankets filled with weighted materials, such as plastic pellets, or glass beads to increase the overall weight of the product. That spreads the weight evenly over the user.

A weighted blanket has been shown to stimulate deep touch pressure (DTP) just in the same way as when we receive a comforting hug.

DTP helps to break this vicious cycle by rousing our “rest and digest” nervous system and producing a feeling of relaxation and calm in both our mind and our body.

The blanket weight should be 10% of the users body weight

Rest Easy Sleep Better blankets are designed to fit the user not the bed size that they sleep in.

Our blankets are suitable for Children over the age of three

In particular, weighted products should not be used for children with:
• Respiratory (breathing) problems
• Cardiac (heart) problems
• Epilepsy
• Serious hypotonia (low tone)
• Skin problems, including certain allergies;
• Circulatory Problems
• Physical, learning or other difficulties which mean the child is unable to remove the blanket independently

This is a unique and long term investment for yourself therefore blankets should not be shared. 

If 2 people in a household would benefit from a blanket, 2 individual blankets should be purchased to ensure correct weight for each user.

We recommend sponge clean with a soft damp cloth or dry clean.
