What is the Better Sleep weighted blanket?
There are several ways to fight the sleep disorder without using medication. Indeed, a person who has difficulty sleeping wakes up more tired and less efficient. It will have difficulty concentrating and will be less vigilant than usual.
Our Better Sleep weighted blanket presents itself as a solution to insomnia and anxiety. These blankets are characterized by their heavier weight than standard blankets. This weight is created by the addition of recycled glass beads, which do not retain moisture or allergens. The use of one of our weighted blankets activates the production of serotonin (the happiness hormone). This keeps the stress away and promotes relaxation.
Our weighted blanket is particularly suitable for individuals who suffer from insomnia and/or anxiety. However, nothing prevents a normal person from using it to improve the quality of sleep. This revolutionary product has already proven itself and numerous scientific tests prove it.

How do you choose the perfect Better Sleep weighted blanket for you?
Our weighted blankets are between 5 and 30 pounds. A wide range of different weights is available, but how do you know which one is right for you?
Your own weight will help you determine the right cover weight. Indeed, when choosing a weighted blanket, the most important criteria to consider is the weight. You need to choose the weight that is right for you in order to get the desired effect. According to many studies, it is recommended to take a coverage of about 10% to 12% of your body weight, as shown in the table below:
For children or older adults, the formula is 10% of body weight plus one to two pounds. Lower weight will not give the full effect desired, while too much weight can be dangerous for the individual, especially for children.
We offer 3 different models of soothing blankets with varying sizes and weights to meet different needs. However, it is important to understand which size is best for you so that you can get the most out of the therapeutic effects offered by our Better Sleep blankets. The size you choose will therefore depend on your body size and the size of your bed.
However, it is strongly recommended that you choose the weight of your soothing blanket before focusing on the waist. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds but have a Queen size bed, we recommend a 10 pound or 15-pound blanket instead of a 20-pound blanket for safety reasons.
Weighted blankets are different from each other, especially when it comes to the choice of materials used in the design. For our Better Sleep blankets, we use a manufacturing process that combines 7 layers to prevent glass beads from escaping or piling up in a corner of the blanket. Here is a diagram that illustrates the design of our blankets:
As we can see in the previous picture, we use non-toxic recycled glass beads in our blankets to repel humidity.
How to wash your blanket?
Our weighted Better Sleep blankets are very easy to clean. Simply remove the cover from the weighted blanket and put it in the washing machine. You can wash any Better Sleep blanket in cold water, with a small amount of liquid detergent, and in gentle mode. We recommend that you clean the weighted blanket if it is always used with a cover, but it can also be washed alone if your washing machine is powerful enough. Both should be air-dried for maximum quality and durability of the cover.
Here is a summary of the instructions:
- Cold water
- Delicate cycle
- Wash with similar colors
- Do not dry clean
- Hang to dry
- Do not iron
- Do not use bleach
Which cover to choose?
We offer several different covers to meet the different needs of consumers and the different temperatures of the year. Here are the four covers we offer:
A few safety tips
- Do not use a weighted blanket on very young children (children 5 years of age and under should not be left unattended with the soothing blanket).
- If you suffer from severe claustrophobia this product is not recommended for you.
- Do not completely surround or wrap young children in the blanket, simply cover them with it.
