Choosing your weight

As a general guide, we recommend choosing a blanket that's around 8-12% of your body weight, but it's ultimately down to personal preference.

If you've not tried a weighted blanket before, you might want to start on the lighter end. Ranging from 2-4kg, our Kids Weighted Blanket works great for all ages.

If you love the feeling of a chunky duvet (or find comfort in being laid on by large dogs, cats or other 4 legged pets), then you might want to try something a bit heavier.

Care

• Wash at a maximum of 30°C
• Wash on a cold gentle cycle
• Do not iron
• Do not tumble dry
• Lay flat to dry

FLAT DRY:
To dry your blanket, place it flat on top of a few large towels to soak up any excess water. This will prevent the blanket from losing its shape.

HANG DRY:
You can hang-dry your blanket, but doing so may decrease the lifespan of your blanket.

DO NOT TUMBLE DRY.
This product is not suitable for dry cleaning or for being used in a clothes dryer as it damages the blanket and reduces its lifespan

FAQs

What exactly is a weighted blanket anyway?
A weighted blanket is heavier than your typical duvet or quilt. Ours range from 5.5KG - 11KG, and are avaialble for adults in single, double, or king sizes, and 2 - 4kg for kids in single sizes. The right size depends on the size and weight of the person using it. Our blankets are weighed down with tiny quartz glass pellets that moulds to the shape of your body. The pellets are blended with a plush filler and encased in ultra-soft, 100% cotton or Eucalyptus.

What weight should I choose?
Ideally, your weighted blanket should be 8-12% of your body weight. If your weight is suitable for a number of sizes, then really, your ideal weight comes down to preference. If you're a newbie, don't go too heavy to start: the last thing you need is to be that person who got stuck underneath a blanket. Or, worse still, that person who couldn’t even get underneath their blanket in the first place.

Tell me more about Deep Touch Pressure.
We’re glad you asked! Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) is the term for when pressure is applied equally across the body, which is known to have a calming and organising effect on the nervous system. This kind of technique, applied through a hug, or say, a heavy blanket, has been shown to increase the release of dopamine and serotonin (the ‘happy hormones’) by around 30%, and decrease the stress hormone cortisol by the same amount. This enables the production of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep.

DTP has been shown to have incredible benefits for all kinds of people, including those with autism, anxiety, depression, tourettes, restless leg syndrome, ADHD, PTSD, or insomnia. It’s also great for people who just like to be really damn comfortable.

Why should I buy a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets are used to provide warmth and gentle pressure all over your body, which feels like you’re being held, or hugged. For many, the sensation induces a relaxed state which helps you fall asleep more easily.

How to use

Using your Mela Blanket
It's easy. Once you’re in bed or in your chill space, arrange the weighted blanket so that it evenly covers your body. To increase the weight in any area, fold the blanket in half. You can place the weighted blanket on top or beneath your duvet if you like or just use it on its own.

Individual Use
Weighted blankets are designed to be used by individuals for even weight distribution. If you share a bed with someone, we'd recommend using separate blankets.

Pets
Does a beloved pet share your bed? At Mela, we love a good cuddle too, but please be aware that our fabrics, while high-quality, are not claw or bite-proof.

Protect your blanket
Protect your blanket from direct sources of heat, as heat could damage the glass pellets inside. This product is heavy and for adult use only. Do not leave a child or pet unattended!

Our original weighted blanket

Fall asleep easier

If your mind races at night, or if your legs feel restless, a weighted blanket could be the answer. It helps to foster a sense of stillness and calm, helping your body and brain to switch off for the night.

Stress less. Wake up happy.

Weighted blankets feel a little like a comforting hug, all night long – so it’s no wonder that they’ve been shown to ease muscle tension, can help reduce stress hormones, and can help increase the release of happy hormones.

Adaptable to you.

Our blankets are made using anti-rustle glass quartz pellets, which move around silently and mould to your body shape. Those pellets are padded with polyester and encased in a breathable, 100% cotton outer shell, to help you maintain that just-right temperature.

Trusted quality, guaranteed

Our blankets ship free, and if you’re not sleeping better within 30 nights, we’ll give you a full refund & free return. No questions asked. What’s not to love?
