Agnesasked

Just have a concern about the uneven weight distribution that people have complained about in their reviews.

Can you provide more information on how the beads are distributed in the blanket

I don’t find it a problem. The internal ties keep it in place inside the cover. It does bunch up a little at the bottom but the weight is still evenly distributed. I just shake it out in the morning. It’s not enough that it affects the intention of the blanket.

Didn’t you like your calming blanket? You should be able to return if your not satisfied. I bought two and I think they are really good. The service was excellent so you should have any problems sending it back.

Did you get the right weight? And it takes a few days to get used to the weight.

OK. So how does it work? What makes it calm anxiety, please?

For me I honestly don't know how it does this but maybe it has something to do with the weight pressing on you giving you the sense of security . I know it has worked for me and this is all I can go by. So I hope this has helped out a little.

I hate weight in my blankets so don't think I'd like it. Thanks for the reply anyway!

Wiser Nowasked

Hi I have some questions and have rung- message said you are too busy yo talk to people, and emailed-no answer. Seems there are 4 models: ocean, quartz, granite, and bamboo- how do I select the correct one? Also what weight blanket for a 63 kg adult? Is the adult big enough for one, or would I need the queen? Hoping you (the company) see this and give me the information or, someone who has bought one might kindly do it for them.

The models are just the colours of the blanket, except the bamboo one I think that’s different fabric from the rest. The blanket best suited you is 10% of your body weight. So the one closest to 6.3kgs. The adult is like a single bed size. So definitely big enough for you.

Hi. I am living in London ( UK ) and would like to order two blankets. One for my husband who is 83kg and one for myself. I am 63kg. We are both quite warm and I have menopausal symptoms so I over heat easily, so I think the Bamboo would be best. What weight do you recommend for the two blankets required? Are we able to get a single size blanket each as two big blankets on one bed might be a bit much. Definitely very interested and would like to order as soon as possible. Any suggestions will be helpful? Janine.

the weight recommended on their website for both your weights is
68kg = 6.8kg blanket
83kg = 9kg blanket
I would also suggest you both get the bamboo covers as theyre much cooler than all the other covers!

The bamboo will be lighter in weight but only marginally, it will “breathe” a bit better but I purchased the blanket that I think would suit my purpose best

Hi Tori, I haven’t found it to make me hot. I still have a sheet and my other doona on top of the blanket as I have the weighted blanket but my husband does not. I do live in a cold climate so even with the heating on at a constant 17 over night I don’t get hot. Hope this helps:)

Hi I have had my blanket less then a week and it has wearing holes where the beads have fallen out and gone all through my bed, as much as I enjoyed the weight this was a massive disappointment. I also noticed clumping in areas.

G.gardner - this is definitely not a regular occurrence and is not normal. Please email us some photos and we will get you a new blanket sent out straight away :)

We got the lowest weight in the adult sizes..not sure if that was 4.5 or 6.5 kgs. I highly reccomend asking the calming blanket site. Their support IT is great. Our son is 8 and we find it calming ourselves.

I bought the adult one which was 4.5kg. My 9 year old is the youngest in our family so I felt that the adult size would be fine and it is. You could always try one and see how you go

Can you claim for the blanket on health insurance extras cover?

Hey Sue!

Probably best you ask your health insurance provider. An invoice/receipt will be sent to you upon completing your purchase. Whether this can be used to claim back, I am unsure.

Hi
I would like to purchase one of your blankets, however I have read a few reviews about your cover not being great. Has this been changed?

Calming B.Calming Blanket

Hi Michelle,

Unsure what problem you are referring to here :)

Our cover now has 12 ties which stops shifting which was a slight problem last year. However we don't have any negative reviews so I am unsure what your specific question is about.

Let me know so I can help you!

Hey all,

If your ties of your outer blanket are properly secured to your inner blanket this should not be a problem! :)

Will it cover a queen bed and replace my quilt.

1 answer
Calming Blanket
Calming B.Calming Blanket

Hey TX1

Our adult blankets are single size however we have also just released a queen mattress sized blanket.

This can replace your quilt & cover your queen bed. It won't drape over the edges which can cause the blanket to fall off.

We recommend 1 blanket per person when using a weighted blanket to aid with sleep.

Thanks heaps,
