Quick Summary

Designed by a team of sleep specialists and product designers in Toronto, the Hush weighted blanket is the product of more than 1,000 hours of collaboration and development. Between three and five times heavier than your standard comforter, the Hush Blanket relies on Deep Pressure Touch (DPT) to reduce anxiety while promoting more restful sleep.

Like other weighted blankets, the Hush helps relax the nervous system, boosting the mood-enhancing and sleep-regulating hormones serotonin and melatonin. At the same time, the blankets work to decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Weighted blankets have been used by medical health professionals to help patients with issues like insomnia and ADHD for decades, but have only recently been introduced into the mainstream as a natural, drug-free tool for improving sleep quality.

The company’s flagship product, the Hush blanket, is filled with nontoxic glass beads to give the blanket its weight. The Hush blanket’s shell is made from pure cotton and sewn into sturdy pockets to keep the glass pellets distributed evenly over the body. The blanket is protected by a removable duvet cover made of ultrasoft minky microfiber fabric.

Ideal for a single user, the original Hush is available in twin (48 x 78 inches) and queen (60 x 80 inches) sizes. The twin size comes in a choice of 10, 15, 20, or 25 pounds, while the queen is offered in a choice of  15, 20, or 25 pounds. The blanket features a light grey cover threaded with a unique stitching pattern designed to be comforting to the touch.

Materials and Construction

Next, let’s take a closer look at the construction of the Hush weighted blanket. The blanket is filled with nontoxic glass beads, which give the product its heavy, hug-like weight. The pellets are sewn into small compartments within the interior cotton shell to ensure even weight distribution across the body.

The outer duvet cover is made with a minky microfiber that features a special stitching pattern designed to be comforting to the touch. The outer cover features an exterior zipper on the top of the blanket that allows you to remove it for easy washing. The blanket also includes interior zippers that run along the sides to securely attach the inner cotton shell to the duvet cover, ensuring that the inner blanket remains evenly positioned inside the cover.

Product Name Inner Fill Material Outer Shell Material Weight Options Available Colors/Patterns Available

Cleaning and Care

To clean the Hush blanket’s minky duvet cover, unzip the exterior and interior zippers and remove the inner weighted blanket. The duvet cover can be washed in a conventional machine with gentle detergent. The manufacturers recommend hanging the cover to dry rather than using a dryer.

To clean the inner weighted blanket, the company suggests hand-washing and air-drying to prevent rips around the pockets which would cause the glass beads to spill.

Availability

Hush weighted blankets are available for purchase through the Hush website, as well as through online and third-party retailers, such as amazon.com.
