Frequently asked questions
We (and a lot of other experts) recommend aiming for approximately 10% of your body weight. That way, you can be sure that you are getting the effect you want. Still, anywhere from 5 to 15 % is acceptable - you just have to find what works best for you. If the person using the blanket is 25kg - 45kg we suggest the 4.5kg blanket. If the person is 45kg - 85kg we suggest the 6.8kg blanket. If you are 85kg and above we suggest the 9kg blanket. If you struggle to lift heavy objects, pick the lighter option. If you are buying for a child under 25kg we suggest the 2.2kg blanket. Weighted blankets must not be given to children under 2 years old and parent supervision is recommended.
Yes, our weighted blanket for adults is machine-washable. We recommend washing the cover and the inner blanket separately. Read more about weighted blanket care here.

Yes, we have a 30-day refund policy. You will be expected to post your blanket back to 80 Grove Ave, Marleston, 5033. The package has to be unopened and undamaged for us to approve your refund.
Within Australia, you can expect your weighted blanket within 2-8 business days. We now use Australia Post. Shipping to New Zealand costs $39 (express shipping) and takes 2-5 business days. If you purchase 2 or more products, you may be required to pay duties. We use DHL Express.
Our blankets are known for their soothing, evenly distributed weight. If you find your blanket is bunching, it’s probably due to 1 of the inner ties coming untied. To fix this, open the outer blanket zipper and secure the inner blanket to the outer using the tie. Then lay they entire blanket flat again to ensure it’s functioning correctly.
We don't suggest using a weighted blanket if your child is under 2 years of age. They have to be able to lift the blanket so they can easily uncover themselves if needed. That's why we created a 2.2kg weighted blanket for children under 30kg. If your kid is over 30kg they might be okay to use the 6.8kg product for adults, provided they can lift it.
Right now, our minky blankets can be bought in grey (Granite), blush (Quartz) and Blue (Ocean). Our bamboo blankets come in green/blue (Maldives) and grey (Midnight). We drew our inspiration from the serene colours that surround us in nature. They are both identical (use glass beads) and the only difference is in the colour.
