Inspired by the heavy blankets used to ease anxiety in health facilities, DreamHug designed a weighted blanket to decrease stress while promoting healthy sleep. Today, DreamHug Weighted Blankets are used for sleepers with a wide variety of issues, including ADD and ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), PTSD, stress, and anxiety. The DreamHug weighted blanket works by simulating a hug, thereby working to boost levels of serotonin and melatonin in the body while reducing cortisol. For many users, the blanket effectively helps reduce anxiety and enhance their overall sleep experience.
The DreamHug Weighted Comforter is filled with dense plastic poly pellets made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a durable, non-toxic substance. The comforter features a pure, white-cotton shell and comes with a Cool Gray duvet cover made from a soft, polycotton micro plush fleece. The duvet is secured to the inner comforter with ties to prevent the blanket from pooling in the middle.
The original DreamHug is 48”x 72”, slightly smaller than a standard full-size comforter. The original blanket is available in three different weights, including 10, 15, and 20 lbs. Recently, the company added a 25 lb, 88″ x 100″ blanket for a queen-sized and 30 lb, 88″ x 102″ blanket for a king-sized bed. The company recommends choosing a blanket that is 7-14% of your total body weight.

We’ve included detailed ratings for the DreamHug Blanket below, compiled from the results of our in-house testing.
With its multiple size/weight options and durable construction, the DreamHug Weighted Blanket holds up to its competitors. Our editors also appreciate the included duvet cover, which adds an extra layer of warmth and protection while making it even easier to wash.
Two criticisms that stood out were the plastic pellets and the blanket’s tendency to pool toward the middle of the duvet cover, suggesting poor fastening. There’s also a lack of other duvet cover designs and colors available. However, DreamHug does suggest more designs will be made available in the future.
