What is a weighted blanket?

A weighted blanket is a blanket filled with small objects providing extra weight that gently feels like being hugged or swaddled.

It mimics the pressure of being hugged or held, which is why weighted blankets have been used for years in occupational therapy, particularly in conditions such as depression, anxiety and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
