Specialising in heavy blankets, the bedroom accessories are weighted between 4.5kg and 9kg and have been proven to increase body circulation and maximise comfort for those with anxiety, stress and sleeping disorders.

The products are made of 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.

Calming Blanket is made with unique non-toxic glass beads that are evenly distributed for mental and physical well-being. Any products are delivered in a reusable, environmentally friendly bag.
