It works for me!
Stayed at my sisters; with a weighted blanket on bed. She lives on a busy road in Melbourne and I never sleep well there. With the blanket I had a very restful night! I bought the 6.8 Kg model as soon as I got home. Use it every night and take it away with me.

Great blanket + Excellent Customer Service
I use my blanket every single night and love it. When I had some issues with it the team at Calming Blankets were so friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend them more.
So cosy weighted blanket
Informative website, easy to order and arrived promptly. Lovely weighted blanket, such a cosy cover, it’s lovely to snuggle up under and the weight felt surprisingly comfortable when I first started using it. I’m still using the summer duvet over the blanket as I’m so warm, just love the cover. I also ordered the bamboo cover but the temperatures went down so I will try that again next year when it’s warmer at night. I’m completely satisfied with the blanket and covers and recommend them.

They finally arrived! My daughters and I are loving our blankets!! The minky cover is lovely to touch and we are looking forward to using the cotton covers over the summer period. When you wrap the blanket around you, it feels like you're getting a big hug!! Such great value getting the family pack. Three very happy ladies here! :)

The kids love their calming blanket
Very good for kids who are sleep walkers or find it difficult to settle at night. My kids love theirs.
The 3 pack is good value, excellent customer service and fast postage.

Hell to the yes
My life literally changed when I got this blanket, it’s been over a year now and I can’t sleep without it! It feels like a big warm hug and quite honestly makes you never want to get out of bed. Treat yourself and get it, trust me.

Amazing. Best nights sleep. Feel amazing
For years I have suffered anxiety and every few days I would end up tossing and turning, overthinking things I know I have no control over and unable to get back to sleep, unable to basically fall back into a proper sleep pattern. I tried everything, from ASMR, listening to rain sounds, calming myself before I slept, sleeping herb aids, only to wake up in the early hours of the morning tossing back and forth trying to get comfortable and then my overthinking brain would kick in and I was back to square one. I’d wake up the next day feeling vagu...e, tired and lethargic but I just put it down to everyday life, work and so forth. I got so used to it, I felt it was normal to feel this way & that’s not healthy when I think about it now. Who knew a simple blanket would change your mindset I heard about these blankets many years ago but never really decided to buy one. They were basically too expensive or there were cheaper ones and I wasn’t going to pay hundreds of dollars for “just a blanket” as I originally called it. Fast forward to today and I’m so pleased I took that plunge and bought one. It’s only been two nights sleeping with my weighted blanket but it’s been the best sleep I have had in years. The feeling of comfort and weight and I woke early hours of the morning only to fall straight back to sleep and I mean you do fall into a deep sleep. I woke up refreshed and felt amazing. Don’t hesitate like I did, one of best purchases and I’m feeling the benefits of a restful nights sleep already after a short period

Customer service is shocking. Item quality is okay.
They don’t reply to your emails. I’m stuck withIf I made my purchase again I’d go with another seller who cared to reply to my emails. Quality of item is fine.

Some cons to consider for potential buyers
I really wanted to love this blanket, especially considering the cost, but I am a bit disappointed. I do like being under it, I like the heavy feel but...
1. A couple of times I've noticed my back is a bit sore in the morning after sleeping under it.
2. It's harder to roll over while lying under it and I disturb my husband a lot more while doing so.
3. My husband really doesn't like being under it! So it's not for everyone.
4. It pulls our normal doona off the bed on my side, so my husband ends up with less doona and therefore cold. Plus it's h...

Absolute Life Changer
I would not be able to live without my handwoven blanket, the weight is just perfect, I have had it for years and never had an issue, it still looks brand new! The handwoven blanket with my Pillow Mist is the best combo!!! Can't recommend this company and their products enough!!

Customer support is Terrible
I ordered a Queen/King Weighted Blanket but it wasn't big enough for two people so returned under there 30 days money back guarantee and wanted to order 3 x adult size blankets instead. The item has been returned to them and the only way to contact them is via e-mail (no phone number) and no one is responding to my e-mails. So I have no blanket and they still have my money and I have no option but to just hope they will decide to respond to my e-mails.

Not for me
Tardy response to emails after I returned the product and did not receive a refund in a timely manner. Calming blankets eventually provided full refunded after numerous emails and exposure online.
I did not find the calming blanket a useful tool in aiding sleep / relaxation hence the return.

The best comfort & sleep I’ve had in years!
For years I’ve been struggling to find my comfort & sleep zone..tossing and turning throughout the night until now. I was adamant about getting this blanket cause of the price but I’m glad I did..last nite was the best sleep I’ve ever had
Would highly recommend this product

Questions & Answers
Do people find that the weight of the blanket hinders breathing in any way? I don't think I have sleep apnoea or anything like that, but just am curious to see what people experiences are with a weighted blanket and breathing.
I had wondered that but didn’t find it a problem, it was surprisingly comfortable
Order #CB188237 Hi, I'm more than a little concerned after reading these reviews. I really hope this blanket works for me. Due to my sleeping disorder. I should have done my research prior to ordering, but I am at my witts end with sleeping. Could you please explain the return/refund process to me, if I am delivered an inferior or misleading product?
Sorry im not sure about the refund/return process. However before you open it I suggest to check the websites T&C’s. Its been about 2 months now with the weighted blanket and im back to where i starte...d again. Insomnia. Not sleeping well, feeling fatigue in the morning again. So not quiet sure its worth the price for a good few weeks of sleep.
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 cove...rs. Our suppliers have now fixed this issue, unfortunately, it is just a case of phasing out all of the affected items.

Improve your sleep, reduce your anxiety and wrap yourself in the velvety embrace of the original weighted blanket.
- Ultra-soft faux minky plush fabric
- Durable & washable
- Weight options: 4.5kg, 6.8kg & 9kg
- 30-day risk-free guarantee with free returns
- Non-toxic, noise-free glass beads
- Warmth: Both the inner and outer blanket are made from polyester which is scientifically proved to retain heat. The tight weave of the polyester fabric traps the heat inside, keeping you warm for long periods of time. The luxurious faux-fur coats the outside for an extra layer of warmth and softness.
- Minky fabric: The ultra-soft feel comes from the knit fabric which is very durable. As minky fabric is one-sided, this means a plusher, fur-like and ultra snug texture on the outside.
