How do weighted blankets work?
A blanket which gives you support and comfort, weighted blankets provide evenly distributed deep pressure therapy which give you a lasting feeling of being hugged. By using this blanket when sleeping, resting or relaxing it promotes the release of the hormones oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin that totally relax and calm the mind and body.
How our weighted blanket is made
Each weighted blanket has been handcrafted from the finest fabrics and materials, resulting in a durable blanket that can be used every night. Homescapes weighted blanket consists of 7 layers with each layer performing a vital function which results in a top quality heavy blanket for daily use.
At the core is a layer of non-toxic glass beads, these evenly distributed beads add the weight to the blanket, uniform in shape they are BPA free and hypoallergenic.
Encasing the glass beads is 2 layers of polyester lining, these keeps the beads in place and evenly distributed so that the weight remains equal across the blanket.
A breathable, hypoallergenic, microfibre lining is then added to both sides for extra padding, softness and warmth.
The outer covers complete the blanket. A soft minky velvet top cover that is perfect for snuggling up with and a 200 thread count 100% cotton reverse, this breathable cotton underside helps to keep your temperature regulated as you sleep.
Homescapes weighted blankets are both functional and stylish and are finished in a soft grey colour with a complimentary dark grey piping. Each blanket features a series of loop ties around the edge of the blanket (8 in total), this allows the user to attach the blanket to a weighted blanket cover (sold separately). Weighted blanket covers allow you to mix and match colours to suit your bedroom décor. Due to the composition of a weighted blanket, they cannot be machine washed, so using a cover helps to keep your blanket looking clean and feeling fresh.
How to use a weighted blanket
Weighted blankets are designed for individual use. To find the best weighted blanket for you it is recommended you opt for one which is between 10-12% of your body weight. For maximum comfort, it is recommended that the blanket covers you from the neck down, covering your feet is optional

It can take some time for your mind and body to become accustomed to using and sleeping under a weighted blanket so we do recommend using the blanket regularly and over time you will notice a change.
