How do I choose the right weight and size?
You can take our quiz here to get an answer fast, or determine the ideal weight by calculating roughly 10% of your body weight! Or, if you share a bed, calculate the combined body weight of you and your partner. Here’s some general breakdowns of size recommendations:
The teen size is good for personal use, or even as a couch throw
The twin size is good for personal use, as it’s big enough to wrap fully around most people
The Queen and King sizes are meant for sharing
How does the 100-night trial work?
If you don’t love your Classic Weighted Blanket within 100 nights, simply use our return portal to ship it back to us and get a full refund. For more info, check out our Order Policies page.
Is there a warranty?
Yes! Our blankets come with a 1 year warranty; if you discover a defect within that time, we will replace it. For more info, check out our Order Policies page.
What if I get it and it’s the wrong size or weight?
If you get your blanket and realize the size or weight is off, no worries: within the first 30 days, you can exchange it for the correct size/weight, for free. To limit our carbon footprint, this is a one-time offer, so we do recommend doublechecking you’ve got the right size and weight the first time ‘round! You can visit our sizing page for thorough guidelines, or we’re always happy to help through our live chat.
Is it hot?
Our Classic Weighted Blanket is warming, but if it gets too warm you can always take off the outer cover and sleep directly under the inner weighted insert. It’s made from microfiber, so it’s also soft and comfy.
If you’re someone who typically runs hot during the night, or suffers from night sweats or hot flashes, you’ll probably do better with our Iced 2.0 Cooling Blanket. It’s also weighted, but the cover is made from a material that actively cools you, maintaining a temperature constantly lower than the room’s.
If you’re thinking you want a little of column A and a little of column B: no problem. Try our 2-in-1 Blanket! It comes with both our cooling cover and the classic cover, bundled to save costs. This gives you the ability to swap them out seasonally, or just whenever you feel like it!
How do I wash it?
All our covers are easily removable and machine-washable. Simply unzip, put it in a cold wash, and hang dry for best results! And if hang dry isn't an option, no worries: try tumble dry on low heat. Even better, the naturally antibacterial fabric our Iced 2.0 is made of naturally keeps away smells and bacteria, so it doesn’t even need washing as frequently as most duvets do.
And for the inner weighted insert: it won’t need cleaning as often as the cover, but is still cleanable! We recommend hand-washing, and then hang to dry.
What if I’m sharing a bed?
No problem: our Queen or King size blankets are more than enough for two! Or, if you and your partner have significantly different weights, you can also try getting individual Teen or Twin size blankets with different weights, to ensure max comfort for you both.
What is Minky fabric?
Minky fabric is a high quality polyester microfiber that’s fully hypoallergenic, and incredibly soft. It’s made from the best polyester fibers, creating something softer than fleece and silkier than other synthetics. It’s also long-lasting and low maintenance; it’ll stay soft and plush instead of growing threadbare, and can be put through the wash for a clean. Just make sure to hang dry or dry on low. Helpfully, it also dries quickly and resists stains.
It’s often used with children’s stuffed animals, for the hypoallergenic properties but also the softness and longevity. You may already have felt it as a child with a favourite toy; which is why it’s perfect for a stress-relieving blanket cover. When combined with the gentle weight of our blankets, these covers feel like a teddy bear hug.
How are Hush's blankets different?
There are a few ways our blankets are different from other weighted blankets. First, we've got the highest range of size, weights, and cover options in all of Canada. We're conscientious with our materials and make, so you get quality as well as options. We do our best to use environmentally friendly and sustainable materials whenever we can, which benefits you as well as the environment, as we make sure to make our products non-toxic.
Many weighted blankets use plastic pellets for their weighted inserts. These are usually overlarge, making for a clunky and uncomfortable blanket, noisy, and made with toxic materials. Ours uses glass sand; fully non-toxic, heat-dissipating, and very quiet.
We make sure it gets distributed evenly over your body no matter how you toss and turn by putting it into small 4-inch pockets, so the weight can't get shoved all to one side if you're a particularly restless sleeper. We also sewed a soft inner layer into these pockets, to further dampen any sound and make our blankets perfectly silent.
With more than 100,000 reviews, our blankets are some of the best weighted blankets out there. Our attention to detail and priority on making a quality product carries over to everything we make, and we think you can feel the difference.
How does a weighted blanket help?
The gentle, even pressure of a weighted blanket mimics a therapeutic technique called Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS). This technique relaxes your nervous system, slowing your breathing, heart rate, and lowering your blood pressure. This relaxation alleviates anything keeping you up — whether that’s stress, anxiety, or anything else — and helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and feel rested when you wake up. It works for everyone, but is particularly useful for individuals with:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Restless Leg Syndrome
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
