A company which has sold over 50,000 unique weighted blankets across Australia is now accepting orders in the UK. The company, Calming Blankets, was founded in 2017 and offers a range of weighted blankets in different colours and weighted from 4.5kg to 9kg.
The purpose of weighted blankets is that the added weighted can activate the nervous system, helping you to identify where your body parts are in relation to your environment. Their website explains that this allows you to ‘calm down faster, relax more easily, and sleep more soundly.’
Weighted blankets, otherwise known as sensory blankets or gravity blankets, have been proven to help people with sleeping disorders such as insomnia, children with autism or those that struggle to sleep due to anxiety or stress. The comfort of the weight can help reduce tossing and turning through the night and many cannot sleep without it.
Calming Blanket’s cover is made from ultra-soft minky fabric, which is a soft gentle material commonly used for baby blankets. It consists of long fibres which are soft, durable and machine-washable.
Calming Blanket is made with unique non-toxic glass beads that are evenly distributed for mental and physical well-being. Any products are delivered in a reusable, environmentally friendly bag.
The start-up has a 4.9 out of 5 rating on Facebook based on over 500 reviews and has more 5-star ratings on Product Review than any other blanket.
