What size are the Hush Blankets and which weight should I choose?
The Hush is available in many different sizes. We generally follow mattress sizes to make it easier for you. The weights range from 5 lbs from kids to 35 lbs for sharing adults! You will see the size and weight beside each item on our site. The Hush is different because our blanket actually looks good on your bed, since it will drape nicely over the sides instead of just reaching the edge of your mattress top. You should choose a weight that is 7-12% of your body weight or the combined weight of you and your partner if you are sharing. For example, if you’re 160 lbs, then the 15 lbs Hush will be perfect for you. If you think you’d like a heavier weight, then you’re probably right.
How do weighted blankets help with anxiety?
The Hush helps with anxiety by applying pressure over your whole body, which acts as a sort of hug or cocoon for you. Studies show that this effect can reduce anxiety by reducing your cortisol levels while simultaneously increasing your serotonin (happiness hormone) and melatonin (sleep hormone) levels.
Can I share a blanket with someone?
Of course! The Hush Queen and King sizes are made for sharing in both their size and weights. In order to share a blanket, choose a blanket that is roughly 10% of both you and your sleep partner’s weight. Ex. You are 140 lbs and your partner is 160. Get the 30 lbs Queen or King blanket as your half of the blanket will be roughly 15 lbs. If your weights vary drastically, consider purchasing two Twin sized blankets for a more personalized and optimal sleep experience.
Will a weighted blanket help my toddler sleep?
