Take your sleep to the next level with the Hodge & Hodge weighted blanket. Exclusively designed to help promote deep sleep and melt away anxiety, this premium blanket is filled with non-toxic glass beads; a weighted filling that is distributed evenly over your body's pressure points to release feel good endorphins for a deep and restful night sleep. 

It features a soft cotton outer for comfort, and the filling is created with padded polyester pockets to hold each bead in place. The weighted blanket is finished with several loops allowing you to attach a removable cover for easy care. (Sold separately)

Available to shop in two sizes; 6kg - 130 x 150cm or 9kg - 150 x 200cm. We suggest one blanket per person for optimal weight distribution and as a guide, you should aim for around 7-12% of your body weight. 

Details and Care Instructions
Hand Wash Only. Outer: 100% Cotton. Padding: 100gm² Polyester. Non-Toxic Glass Beads.

What is a Weighted Blanket?

The trendiest way to help poor sleepers get a great night's rest, the weighted blanket was originally created for medical use, mostly used by occupational therapists to help comfort restless individuals. It's now become more mainstream though, and a popular way for insomniacs, anxiety-sufferers and bad sleepers to get a good night's rest and improve mental health overall.

 

Self-explanatory - a weighted blanket is just the same as a regular blanket or duvet, except they have non-toxic tiny glass beads stitched inside to give them added weight; the more beads there are inside, the heavier the blanket will be. Ours are made from a soft cotton material in a grey finish and features grid like stitching, which is important for keeping the beads in place.

 

There's also the option to purchase a separate duvet cover that's made from a soft velvet material. These are great because you can pop them in the wash, change colours as you update your decor and, they make an extra cosy layer during winter too.

 

What are the benefits?

The idea behind weighted blankets is to create deep pressure stimulation; so this would be similar to the pressure or stimulation that you feel when you receive a hug from a loved one. That feeling of comfort and warmth releases feel-good endorphins such as serotonin (the key hormone that stabilises your mood, feelings of well-being and happiness) which in turn, then decreases the nervous system activity and gives us a warm feeling of mindfulness and relaxation; exactly what is needed to improve sleep quality. 

 

This means that the weighted blanket has the potential too:

 

Lessen Anxiety

It's been suggested by that studies that a potential way to reduce anxiety is to lay down; so pair this with the deep pressure stimulation, and you're onto a winner.

 

Improve Insomnia and Sleep Disorder

The serotonin endorphin is key here, it's essentially the relaxation hormone, and when released, or activated - it helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep for longer and helps you to enjoy a deeper sleep.

 

Relieve Pain

The weight of the blanket helps to 'ground' the body, by pushing it downwards during sleep. This grounding sensation is shown to help improve the cortisol level, a hormone which helps your body respond to stress, anxiety and to fight infections. 

 

There have also been some studies that suggest using a weighted blanket was beneficial for reducing restlessness in both children and adults with Autism or ADHD.

 

What size should I choose?

This anxiety blanket is available to shop in different weights. For optimal weight distribution we suggest one blanket per person, and as a guide, you should aim for around 7-12% of your body weight, with 10% being the ideal goal. So for example, if you weigh between 80-90kg, we would suggest a weighted blanket of 9kg.

 

The Bottom Line.

Ultimately, the weighted blanket has too many benefits to ignore; it provides a calming, soothing effect and replicates deep touch pressure to help you fall asleep quicker at night, and leave you feeling more rested in the morning. It's essentially what we've all been looking for the entire time! Tried and tested ourselves, we couldn't imagine going back to the regular duvet cover & mattress set up now, it helped us stay asleep for longer at night, and even still, the novelty of bed time with our new blanket, hasn't worn off.
