Excellent customer service - great quality
Whilst ultimately I didn’t find the blanket was right for me, I still rate the product and service as 5 stars.
The blanket weight was distributed very evenly; and the mink cover was very soft and nice.
I did end up returning mine, and the process was amazingly simple, and I received the refund once proof of return postage was sent (not when they actually received it). I do think that this would benefit the majority of people.
Like sleeping inside a cloud
Have been feeling very anxious of late and climbing into bed tonight, I immediately felt happy, relaxed and calm and oh so cosy. I bought the 9kg woven weighted blanket and I feel I could just float away...
I have tried the other weighted blankets (the ones with the ties from another company) and have worn one out and found the shifting weight annoying. So happy I chose the woven style this time. I actually bought two as I have a guest room and no longer use blankets. The woven style suits the Qld climate so much better as it can be used all year round.
Thankyou Calming Blanket

The bunching! Always with the bunching!
When I first got this blanket I absolutely loved it, though 2 weeks in, that all changed. The blanket constantly bunches! Even after shaking it loose and trying to flatten it out it just keeps bunching! The internal ties are useless and keep breaking. Definitely would not buy another.

Now my alarm wakes me, not my anxiety.
I really wasn't expecting such miracles from a weighted blanket - there are many reviews and studies online that vouch for the efficacy of weighted blankets for children or people on the spectrum, but I myself do not identify with any such diagnoses, so I wasn't sure if it would do much for me. Anxiety however, at times is my unwelcome constant companion, C-PTSD being the differential diagnosis I most identify with.
Pretty much every morning prior to trying a weighted blanket, I would wake up to a pit of dread in my stomach. Once I'd noticed t...he feeling in my body, my thoughts would then start their usual dance of worry and dismay until I'd either meditate myself back to sleep or crawl out of bed and start my morning routine which mainly revolves around inviting a calmer balance to my mind. While the blanket itself took a bit longer than expected to come (the company quoted 5-8 business days, however it took 10 business days to arrive with 7 business days elapsing before the item was even dispatched), the wait was all forgiven when I woke up the first morning after trying it. I wasn't sure at first if it was the blanket or just a coincidence, but I woke up feeling.. nice? The knot in my stomach I was so used to being greeted with upon waking was nowhere to be found. At first I thought it could have just been a one-off, but after a week of using the blanket every night and waking up feeling calm and anxiety-free every morning, (even on days where I was expecting rebound anxiety due to medication dose reductions) I'm pretty sure this blanket is everything it's hyped up to be, maybe more. The negatives: I find I have to re-adjust the ties every second day or so, and it is annoying when the weight starts falling around and I have to investigate every tie. If the woven blankets they sell came in nicer colours, I would definitely have chosen that over this one; however I do like the fact that the cover can be removed to be washed because I expect that this will get a lot of use. All things considered, there doesn't seem to be much need for improvement in the actual product itself. It would be nice to see it offered at a price point a little more accessible to those on lower incomes as it is a relatively pricey investment, albeit a good one. I am 5'9" and weigh between 75-80kg and chose the 9.0kg blanket which I think was the perfect choice considering how effective it has been. I would recommend this to anybody who suffers from anxiety or imbalances of the lower chakras.
I like the weight but HATE how much it moves around in the cover.
I like the weight but hate how much it moves around in the cover, it is so difficult to straighten and adjust on my daughters bed and when sleeping under it.
I will not buy another one.

Calming Weighted Blanket
I've heard about these blankets for a while and wanted to try it out. The blanket is great quality and looks great. It took a few nights to get used to, especially the first night, but now I'm enjoying the weight of the blanket and it it is a really comforting way to sleep.

delivery and service
Big shout out to all the team members working in the warehouse during this pandemic. I ordered two blankets from them and was quite confused with the emails i was getting about delivery and they cleared everything up and sent the items asap and I have received them within only a few days of all this happening and I am beyond grateful to the team for their efforts and I cannot wait to try out the blankets.

I have had trouble sleeping since I was very young, I'm a light sleeper, find it hard to get to sleep, and also find it hard to stay asleep, so pretty much a trifecta of bad sleep. I'm also a very anxious person, so I used to lie awake for hours, getting steadily more frustrated at being unable to drop off.
I recently received the hand woven weighted blanket (in the beauty sleep bundle) for my birthday and it has helped me immensely; I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it, it MAY just be the best present I've ever gotten in my 27 years of ...
Jumped straight in and started sleeping with my blanket. I’m falling asleep faster, no tossing and turning and weirdly I’m no longer having leg cramps. It helps me to relax and feel calm, Amazing!! Highly recommend this weighted blanket.

I love my blanket!
Very helpful and comforting. Helps me relax at night and during the day. I wanted one for a while but wasn't sure it would be worth it..... it was! I ended up buying myself one as a self-present during isolation and it was the best decision!!
Sometimes the blanket is difficult to shift around (obviously given its so heavy), I've found that you just need to grab the blanket by the corners, ensuring you are holding both layers before moving. :)

GOOD product and GREAT customer service
I have had problems sleeping all my life - so bad that I would sometimes get no sleep or just a couple of hours broken sleep. I was skeptical about weighted blankets but was so desperate for a decent sleep that I decided to give it a try.
I originally ordered a 9kg weighted blanket. It was much heavier than I anticipated and also found it too hot for me - I run hot enough when sleeping to need the window open even during these cold Melbourne winter months. I had no problems returning/exchanging it, although it did take a few days for my email t...

Perfect for Traveling, Kids weighted Blacket.
Very helpful , with an exchange in weighted blanket .
due to my shoulder operation. I've gone for a lighter kids blanket which is easier for me to lift plus great for travelling since I have restless legs.

Decent sleep at long last.
This reminds me of a handmade quilt my late mother made when I was growing up...it was very heavy however I do recall sleeping like a baby. When I read about the calming blanket, I brought one & it has the same effect as my late Mums quilt. No readjustment needed on my end. Of course I'm happy with it. Will be buying more for the family very soon.

I ordered a blanket from this company a while ago, they sent me the wrong order. I consistently tried to contact them, the phone number goes straight to voice mail, they do not reply to emails or messages or across any other platform, after MORE THAN 2 WEEEKS they finally got back to me with a resolution, and promised to send me the correct order and that I would receive it in 2-8 days, 12 days later and still no order. Save yourself the hassle and order from another company.
I bought the grey woven weughted blanket and it is perfect. It looks great and I just love sleeping under it every night, even my husband cant believe how great it is - I couldn't be happier with my purchase, my 25 year old daughter wants on for Chrismas.

Questions & Answers
I purchased the Bamboo Weighted Blanket as I live in sunny Queensland and wanted a natural fabric that would breathe. I received a blanket and the label says Polyester Inner and Outer with glass beads filling. There is zero reference to bamboo. I've done a bit of reading online and am pretty confident that Bamboo should not be labelled as polyester in any circumstance. Can anyone offer any explanation? It seems a bit misleading to me.

Hi Ange, Steph here :)
I'm very sorry to hear that you have possibly received an incorrect blanket.
I can assure you that our blankets are made from 100% bamboo, however unfortunately, we have recently found that some of the bamboo blankets had the incorrect label put on them when they were manufactured.
Rest assured as soon as we found out, we got on top of this with our suppliers.
I have just sent you an email, if you could please get back to me with a photo of that one, I would love to get this sorted for you right away!
Hope to hear back soon :)
Hi, I have just had the same experience. They are telling me the polyster one is infact bamboo.... it doesnt feel anything like bamboo. It feels silky, just like polyster. Did you ever get sent a bamboo one?
Really hate feeling misled.

Hi Krystina, Steph here :)
I am very sorry that you feel misled in regards to your Bamboo Weighted Blanket, unfortunately, as we mentioned, there was a batch of incorrectly labelled blankets and covers. Our suppliers have now fixed this issue, unfortunately, it is just a case of phasing out all of the affected items.
If you would like to return that one to us for a full refund, we are more than happy to help you with this.
I have just closed your tickets with our support agent Lucy and have contacted you via my personal email to hopefully get this sorted out for you!
Looking forward to hearing back.
I ordered 2 blankets, a kevin koala and a face mask on july 27th 2020.
I have had many email exchanges with you, the last from paris on sept 2nd, who was going to arrange for a priority shipment. Today I tried to ring and got a voice message asking me to email, and when I emailed to support@calmingblankets.Com.Au. The email ‘bounced’. Have you gone out of business?
I now wish to request a full reund of $696.99aud
I also request a phone call on 0404074262 within 2 working days. I save copies of all correspondence, and will take this up with consumer affairs, if no reply.

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
