The Hush weighted blanket is a Canadian-made product that uses Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) to help calm and comfort. It is particularly effective for sleep anxiety, ADHD, OCD, Sensory Processing Disorder, anxiety, stress and general trouble falling asleep. The blanket is up to five times heavier than a traditional comforter and it’s this weight that creates the DPTS.

The blanket works by increasing the brain’s serotonin and decreasing the body’s cortisol. When DPTS is applied to the body it increases the release of serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain. It’s sometimes known as the “happy chemical” because when released, it creates a sense of happiness and wellbeing. Weighted blankets also work to decrease the body’s levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone. Cortisol affects a number of processes in your body, including your metabolism and immune system. A high cortisol level increases the feelings of stress and anxiety.

A study from SciMedCentral found that when participants used a weighted blanket their sleep time increased and movement during sleep decreased. The study participants were also better able to fall asleep and woke up feeling more refreshed. Another study found that anxiety was reduced by 63% in participants who used a weighted blanket.

The Hush weighted blanket is made with nontoxic glass beads that are sewn into pockets to keep the beads evenly distributed over the body. It is these beads that give the blanket its weight. A removable cover made of a washable, mink-like, microfiber fabric protects the duvet.

The Hush comes in a variety of sizes and weights. The company recommends that you select a weight that is 7-10% of your body weight. For example, if you’re 160 lbs then you should choose a 15 lbs blanket.

Technical details
Material/Construction

The Hush weighted blanket is made of two parts: the inner cotton shell and the outer duvet cover. The inner cotton shell contains the nontoxic glass beads. The beads are sewn into small pockets in order to best distribute the weight across the body. It’s the beads that give the blanket its weighted and embracing feel.

The outer duvet cover features a minky microfiber fabric with a unique stitching pattern that is meant to be soothing. The outer duvet is secured to the interior shell with inner zippers, this ensures that the blanket doesn’t move around inside the cover. The duvet also has an exterior zipper which allows it to be removed for washing.

Cleaning/Care

Cleaning and caring for the Hush blanket is relatively easy. First, remove the duvet cover by unzipping the exterior and interior zippers. Next, wash the duvet cover in a conventional washing mashing using a gentle detergent.

For the interior weighted blanket, it’s suggested you spot clean it as much as possible or handwash and air-dry. Using a washing machine is not recommended as it could rip the pockets and cause the beads to spill out.
