DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
The science behind weighted blankets is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.
DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted blankets and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

I purchased the 5lbs weighted blanket for my friend’s son. He has had some issues with sleeping/napping and she, a teacher, at times has been exhausted. I work with children on the spectrum and know that sometimes my little ones are very calmed by applying pressure to certain areas of their bodies. I immediately thought of my friend’s son, wondering if the pressure or weight of the blanket would work for him. After his first night with his Harkla blanket...he slept the ENTIRE night!! We are both impressed with the quality and attention to detail. I have worked with children for over 25 years now. I have even been recommending it to the families I work with:) I am Uber impressed with your company and your mission. I will continue to sing praises of your company. Let me know if you’re hiring🤓
Our son loves pressure when he gets frustrated. The weighted blanket has been a great addition to help calming down. The blanket has also become a routine part of nighttime bedding. The minky outer shell is a great textured addition. Product is well made, with internal ties to hold the weighted portion in place. Shipping to Canada, it also arrived exceptionally quickly - just a couple days from order to arrival.

Excellent customer service . I bought this for my great grandaughter. Her mom says yes she loves it.
This blanket has helped so much with my ability to sleep through the night, as well as help me go to sleep faster. The blanket is extremely soft, and the weight is perfect. The pressure of the blanket also relieves stress and anxiety within minutes of use. I highly recommend!
