How do I wash it?
All our covers are easily removable and machine-washable. Simply unzip, put 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.
As 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.
We use cotton for these covers because a kid’s skin is usually more sensitive than adults, and cotton is naturally soft, hypoallergenic, and breathable. The tight weave also helps to keep out things like dust mites, germs, sweat, all sorts of stuff that might otherwise cause reactions.
How does a weighted blanket work?
The gentle, even pressure of a weighted blanket mimics a therapeutic technique called Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS). This technique relaxes the nervous system, slowing down breathing, heart rate, and lowering blood pressure. This relaxation alleviates anything keeping your child up — whether that’s distraction, anxiety, or anything else — and helps them fall asleep faster, and stay asleep. It works for everyone, but is particularly useful for children with:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Restless Leg Syndrome
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
How does a weighted blanket help my kid’s health?
Sleep is important for anyone, but especially for kids. It’s an important building block for physical and mental health, and a key part in their growth. It:
Helps kids grow. While kids sleep their pituitary gland releases the growth hormone that helps them grow big and strong, which chronic sleep issues can interfere with.
Keeps kids fit. Poor sleep has also been linked to obesity, either because the hormones that control appetite don’t get properly released in a body without enough sleep, or because a tired child simply doesn’t want to be active.
Boosts immunity. Sleep strengthens the immune system, meaning poor sleep can result in greater vulnerability to illnesses and infection.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, as many as 25 - 50% of kids experience sleep problems. Tackling these sleep issues can be hard, and we want to do our part to make it easier.
How are Hush's weighted 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 use glass beads; fully non-toxic, so tiny its basically fine, smooth sand, and very quiet.
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.
