Quick Summary

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.

Inner Fill Material

The DreamHug is filled with tiny plastic pellets made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a durable, non-toxic substance that is safe for both kids and pets. However, plastic pellets are less breathable and contour less the body. Additionally, some customers have reported that the blanket tend to pool towards the middle of the duvet cover even when fastened.

Outer Fill Material

Without the duvet cover, the outer shell of the DreamHug is crafted from cotton. Every comforter comes with a grey, polycotton “Cool Gray” fleece duvet cover that is attached to the inner weighted comforter with ties.

Warmth

Our testers found that the included polycotton fleece duvet added an extra layer of warmth to the weighted blanket, a feature not found included in many competitor blankets.

Breathability

With the fleece duvet cover, the blanket sleeps very hot. Luckily the fleece cover of the DreamHug can be removed, leaving only a breathable cotton shell. The plastic pellet inner fill, however, makes this blanket less breathable than blankets with glass beads.

Durability

As a new product, it is difficult to predict the exact durability of the DreamHug Weighted Blanket. However, it is well-made and has an expected lifespan that is comparable to the average weighted blanket – about 3 to 4 years.

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.
