i have been using my calming blanket for a few weeks now and it’s honestly been life changing. i was able to sleep with it from the first day i received it. i have ptsd and can feel easily overwhelmed. sleep sometimes is a bit of a struggle (sometimes i take some time to fall asleep because of worry/anxiety) and i usually move around a lot in my sleep. since using the calming blanket for sleep, i have found i do not wake up during the night much anymore. i also tend to stay in the same position. the blanket is my hug blanket and i love it. i wi...sh i had one of these years ago. even to just use it in a moment of feeling overwhelmed to help me ground, it is my new best friend!!! the lavender mist is also great, love the smell. i’ll be interested to see if i am able to sleep with this blanket in summer as i live in sydney and it’s very hot here!
Edit: Blanket Received with New Order
EDIT 21st August: Calming Blankets shipped out a new order on 18th August and I received the replacement blanket yesterday. My son used it last night and for his day nap today and it was a game changer. Slept through and is currently still sleeping 2 1/2 hours into his day sleep! Although it is a long time coming from my original order the blanket is definitely worth it! Thanks to Paris from Support for her actions on getting a new blanket shipped out.
Order placed on 14th July, shipping information received on 17th July ...
beautiful and relaxing sleep
This blanket have had a big difference to my life and sleep, the extra weight is comfortable and I am able to fall asleep faster. It took me a few weeks to get used to the weight because I have never slept with weight before therefore it is necessary to chose what they recommend for your body weight. However my body and mind got used to it quickly and now I can not sleep or function without this absolutely fantastic invention. Calming Blankets is the right place to by your blanket from as the blanket is beautifully made and I am sure it will l...ast me a life time. It is the greatest investment I have ever invested in. I absolutely love it and I can not wait to try my new cotton covers as the blanket is so warm and great for winter. The blanket works well with layering other blankets on top and I am always the perfect temperature and comfortable for a nice sleep. I train a lot and use my body therefore I have also found that it is great for muscles, anxiety and stress and I feel well rested in the morning.
Amazing! It actually works! I'm over the moon!
I have never slept this well since I was a kid..i have anxiety and depression and am medicated but I still wake up every hour...with the blanket I now only wake once or twice in a night and get a good slab of sleep..I even find it easier to get up cos now I'm more rested..It took me a while to decide about purchasing but I'm SO glad I did..tytyty
I have started dreaming agaib
This blanket is the most calming relaxing item. I have never felt better rested. I can’t believe it. IM DREAMING AGAIN, I’ve missed dreaming so much 100% :D happiness. I’m finding my dreams are so vivid. My partner was originally not interested and is shocked at how much better sleep he’s getting. Couldn’t recommend this enough. We have a king size bed and got a king/queen blanket......it works amazing because we don’t move around as much as we used to :) sleeping through the whole night :) I love it!! Thank you calming blankets <3
Not what I expected
My blanket keeps sliding off because of the weight distribution is uneven. Every night I need to check that my blanket is on evenly or it will uncomfortable sleeping. Sometimes the corners bunch up and I have a big clump of weight in the middle of my bed
But then I got the woven weighted blanket and that solved my problem! Now I’m happy to use my blanket every night and I fall asleep so quickly.
Absolutely fantastic blanket!
Just when I thought I would not be able to get some purposeful rest, I came across Calming Blanket's 4.5kg weighted blanket. This has made my sleep a lot better - so much so, I end up waking up much more refreshed that I would if I had my regular blankets on! I chose the 4.5kg one as I had no experience with these amazing blankets - Calming Blanket recommend going with weights up to 15% of your body weight but the 4.5kg one helps as much as one at 12-15kg. I would not go back to my previous blankets as this one also manages to keep me warm and cosy. I will definitely recommend Calming Blanket to all my friends looking for weighted blankets
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
