For those with trouble sleeping, help is at hand. An Australian-start-up called Calming Blankets is now taking orders in the UK for its innovative, ‘heavy weighted’ blankets – something that has been proven to help with sleep disorders and those with trouble sleeping.
With over 50,000 units sold across Australia, Calming Blankets has recently set up its operations in Northampton, just north of London, with the ability to ship its products across the whole of the UK.
How Does Calming Blankets Work?
Every soft blanket weighs between 4.5kg to 9kg and the extra weight is designed to provide extra comfort and has been proven to improve quality of sleep.
The added weighted can activate the nervous system, helping you to identify where your body parts are in relation to your environment. Calming Blankets explain that this allows you to ‘calm down faster, relax more easily, and sleep more soundly.’
The products come in a range of colours and weights and have been popular amongst those with insomnia, anxiety, sleep apnea and children with autism.
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.
Other items included in their top selling products are the weighted koala toy and the “Oodie’ – a large onsie meets weighted blanket.
Children’s blankets start from £119.00 and adult blankets start from £149.00 with bamboo covers available and free delivery within 2 to 4 days.
