Poor quality stitching
The good stuff:
Fast delivery so I was really happy with how quickly they processed the order.
The bamboo cover feels nice.
The not so good stuff:
Poor quality stitching all over, and one of the loops to secure with a tie is broken straight out of the box.
If I machine washed this it would be falling apart at the seams.
Doesn't feel heavy in a comforting way like I've come to expected with a weighted blanket.
I have a 7kg weighted throw bought from a competitor that feels like a solid 7kg and this doesn't give me the same level of comfort. (This is 152 x 203 and my weighted throw is 122cm x 198cm so I guess the extra 30cm distributes the weight in a way that doesn't work for me)...

Love it! Just treat with care.
I did experience an issue with my blanket. The customer service team was extremely helpful in helping me rectify the quality issue.
--> The glass beads can come out, but if you treat the blanket with care it shouldn't be an issue.
Bottom line is I love my therapy blanket, it has really helped me consistently get a good nights sleep, plus it really is very calming :)

Fine if you only use it for a year
Similar to other users, found that the glass beads leave their pockets after a while and bunch up in the corners of the blanket. Tiny glass beads have also started coming out through the stitching. Contacted customer service to see if it was repairable (it is now 4 months outside the 12 month warranty). No interest in helping once it is outside warranty period. Won't be purchasing from them again and will try another brand. Really disappointing.

The glass moves around and doesn’t stay in their pockets. The zipper connecting the cover to the blanket is of terrible quality and didn’t work at all. I emailed them and they asked me to send a video. I did this and they wrote an email back asking for further videos of the faulty zipper... I’m too scared to try returning it from all the other commmens of people having lots of trouble getting a refund.
Find another supplier
Did a lot of research, Therapy Blanket offer a 30 day trial period and had the king size that we wanted. Purchased the weighted blanket based on the websites calculation of two people’s body weight if buying a king size, had it 2 nights but it was far too heavy and returned it to the 3PL depot the day after they accepted our request to return it for a refund. There were no defects found when it arrived to us, nor when we packaged it to return. We met all conditions of their returns policy but 2.5 weeks later we finally received a refund minus 3...0% for a loose thread. Will not recommend this company to others, no integrity. How can you charge $70 for a loose thread that was either there to begin with, or occurred during the few days it was in our possession suggesting poor quality stitching, or during the 2.5 weeks that it sat in Star Tracks 3PL that this supplier use for storage.

Poor customer service
I used the weight guide on their website and the blanket was so heavy I woke up with muscle pain each morning. I contacted the company who said offered no assistance and said I had to pay all return shipping to exchange. I also explained that I couldn’t carry such a heavy blanket to the post office and don’t have a car, to which the reply was ‘get a friend to help.’ That is currently not possible under the restrictions in Victoria. This all seems unreasonable when I used the guide on their website. I now have a $250 blanket I cannot use. Avoid this company.

If you only use it for a year!
Just after a year of purchase, the cells that keep the glass bits apart already disrupted. If you take the cover sheet off, be ready to see small glass parts all over. Besides, since the weight re-distributes once this happens, what you have at the end is a meaningless blanket with no weights at all in the middle where your body lyes under, and kilos of weight where it already sits on the bed! Waste of money at the end. Customer service gives a 50% discount for your NEXT purchase as if they do not do this to everyone who visits their website!

Good product and great after sales service
Product really does help you sleep better. And having a ‘warm’ and a ‘cool’ side to the cover really makes a positive difference.
My blanket started losing some of its fill recently, towards the end of the warranty period. Customer service team asked for some pictures as evidence, then immediately offered a replacement. Very good service.

my most favorite "Security blanket"
I love this blanket, the quality is therapeutic and it gives me the security I need. It feels food to sleep in it and melt myself away while I sleep.
Purchased in January 2020.
Didn’t like it
Found it too heavy and uncomfortable, was expecting some softness but was very stiff and no flexibility, felt very restricted. Didn’t even try sleeping under it, put the blanket minus cover on bed to try and that was enough for me packed it straight up and sent it back.
Initially I gave them a good review because of their response to emails etc about returning product but then things changed once they had product back.
After them having it back a couple of weeks they informed me they had to withhold some money as there was a stain on the co...
The blanket has taken a bit of getting used to but it is very good quality and customer service was great. It is very warm though, even with the adaptive cover so it’s not getting much use yet as Queensland is still very warm at the moment. I’m looking forward to using it more when the weather cools down further. Very happy with the purchase. Look for promo codes to help with cost of purchase. I used code ‘autumn’ to receive a 50% discount.

Buyer beware. Read all the fine print.
Blanket was too heavy for me - because I didn’t have the original zip lock bags & outer cardboard box that was delivered I was not eligible for a refund. Terrible customer service.

One huge pro, several niggles
I have had chronic insomnia for 33 years and have tried everything to help and so I was amazingly surprised and pleased that the first night I slept with my new Therapy Blanket, I went from having on average 3 - 4 hours of broken sleep a night, to sleeping for 5 1/2 hour without waking!! Since using this blanket, I am sleeping for longer than when using a duvet and when I do wake in the night, it feels like Im being hugged, so I have noticed I am not clenching my jaw and teeth and fall back to sleep quicker than I used to!
There is no sounds o...f beads when I move, its much quieter than most duvets! The weight distribution is perfectly even because the square compartments are small. The amazing plus point of better sleep, outweighs the slight negatives, which I hope to get used to. Below are my niggles! I ordered the 7 kg blanket, even though for my weight, I should have gone for the 9 kg one, but I'm so glad I did, because there are several downsides about even having this much weight! At first, it felt uncomfortable and almost smothering to lay on my back, as the weight of the blanket pushed down on my chest and lungs, but every night I get more used to that! The weight of the blanket on my toes, makes them curl under or back towards the top of my feet, so not as comfortable for your feet as a duvet. Three things about it make me more achy - the effort to turn over, makes me lay in one position for longer. Because I am more relaxed and hence less fidgety, I am moving less at night than with a duvet, so hence I get more stiff. Because it pushes me down slightly into the mattress, the mattress is feeling more firm and again, makes me more achy in the mornings! It is slightly more narrow than a duvet so at first, I got a few drafts, but quickly got used to that as it seems to snuggle around me pretty effortlessly. It's pretty heavy to lift and re arrange in the mornings, but I've got used to it. It's winter, so I'm sleeping with the warmer side towards me, but the colder top side is colder than a duvet when I rest my arms on it; but its still a good idea to have a cold and warm side! The grey colour is pretty drab, a lighter fresher colour would be nicer! I miss sleeping in my cotton or cotton/polyester duvet covers! But all of these slight cons are outweighed by the real purpose if it - to sleep well and feel relaxed!! So, in conclusion, with getting more sleep, life is much better in so many ways and I am not over eating so much by day, which already has made me lose some weight and so with that, I'm hoping I will therefore get less achy in the mornings, which so far seems to be the main downside of this blanket for me as a women in my 50s!!

Well designed comfort
I received my 7kg bamboo therapy blanket (custom order-with both grey and pink covers, no pillow cases)
Firstly I was really impressed with the amazing customer service. I sent the company so many questions and each was answered with detail within the stated 24-48 hr time frame. I am also grateful for the way in which they happily tailored my order to fit my needs.
I was so impressed with the zip and tie securing system to ensure that the inner blanket does not slide around inside the cover. The 10 x 10 stitched squares ensure that the bea...ds remain evenly distributed. The 7kg blanket gives a comfortable firm feel without the heaviness that you might expect from that weight. The bamboo cover can be machine washed however the inner blanket can only be washed by hand or spot cleaned. I really felt the benefit over my legs that often suffer from restless leg symptoms. The soft bamboo feel adds to the comfort making it a slice of luxury after a hard day. I bought my blanket on sale and I would be happy to recommend it.

Review collected in partnership with Therapy Blanket
I got this blanket in the hope it would help my PTSD related nightmares. Since using the blanket I have not had a single nightmare, I was having 3-4 per night before I bought it. Only drawback is that even with the zips and ties to hold it in place, the blanket still bunches up inside the cover.

Questions & Answers
Therapy blanket is all round season? I’m in Victoria thanks Silvia
Hi Silvia, thank you for your inquiry! Yes, correct and we have two different kinds of materials to choose from to better suit your preference for the blankets namely Adaptive Series and Bamboo Series.
Adaptive Series - also known as our all-year blanket for its cover that is made up of buttery-soft, micro plush side that helps keep one warm and the other side made of Bamboo that is cool to the feeling. The fabric of its inner blanket is also pure cotton. (https://therapyblanket.com.au/products/therapy-blanket)
Bamboo Series - this option is more breathable and perfect for areas that have warmer weather or for users who sleep hot and tend to sweat more in their sleep. The fabric is pure Bamboo from its cover down to its inner blanket, making it more breathable. Have I also mentioned that this comes with a free pillowcase? Definitely cool! (https://therapyblanket.com.au/products/therapy-bamboo-weighted-blanket)
You may also buy an extra cover as desired so you may enjoy both worlds! Let us know should you need at any time by emailing us at email@example.com. Cheers!
Have emailed and put in an online question regarding where my blanket is that I ordered with express postage and have not received any responses. Getting very worried about being scammed.
I don't think you have anything to worry about. They are super busy and a small company. I found them very professional.
Could anyone advise do we need to wash the cover before we first use?

What reviewers thought
This product is rated highly by reviewers who enjoy the heavy tucked in feeling. Some reviewers complained that the beads redistributed with use and eventually began to leak out between the stitches. The returns process tends to be tricky for those without a car - and you may not get a full refund if there are some threads missing.
Overall, reviewers were happy with the product which provided people some of the most comfortable sleeps yet.
