A Deeply Therapeutic Blanket for Stress, Anxiety and General Relief

The Irusu organic cotton weighted blanket is a great option for those who suffer from or live with anxiety, insomnia and autism, or who have an interest in improving their sleep quality in general. It is made from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) organic cotton and food grade, BPA-free polypropylene pellets, varying in weight depending on the individual's body weight.

When purchasing your blanket, the rule of thumb is to choose one which is equal to10% of your body weight, plus one or two pounds if you'd like it a little heavier. For example, if you weigh 170 lbs, you should select a 17-19 lbs blanket.

This blanket harnesses the scientifically proven capacities of Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) to cuddle and calm the body, creating deeper relaxation and in turn making way for a better sleep.


Details

  • Promotes better sleep and a feeling of calm
  • Provides deep touch pressure stimulation which allows you to feel lightly hugged or held, decreasing cortisol and increasing serotonin and melatonin levels
  • May help you to settle down to sleep more easily and to feel more refreshed upon waking
  • Nighttime movement reduction
  • Mini weighted blanket serves 3 purposes: 1) at full length, it can be placed on the leg of a person suffering with RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome), 2) When folded in half lengthwise, it can be placed around the neck and shoulders, 3) When folded in half width-wise, it can be placed on the lap. 
  • Well-made using 4 layers of undyed, quilted organic cotton fabric on each side
  • Contains food grade, BPA-free plastic pellets measuring 1/8" within for consistent coverage from head to toe
  • Machine washable
  • Made in Canada 

    Care Instructions

    Irusu blankets are machine washable. Weighted blankets up to 15 lbs can be laundered in your home washer and dryer. For heavier blankets (20-25 lbs), we recommended you utilize an extra capacity commercial machine (such as those found in laundromats) for best results. Use warm water for washing and medium heat for drying. Spot clean by running cool water through the area of focus and draping or hanging your blanket to dry. Please do not use bleach as it will compromise the fabric. Do not dry clean as dry cleaning involves the use of chemicals and intense heat, which may compromise the organic cotton fabric.

    To choose the proper weight for your weighted blanket, calculate 10% of your body weight and round up or down by up to two pounds. If you do not see your blanket weight, contact us, and we will be happy to custom make one for you at no extra charge. If you have any questions, please contact us.

    Helps with anxiety and sleeping issues

    I bought this for my daughter who has anxiety and sleep issues. We noticed a difference after the first night. She loves the weighted blanket and looks forward to going to bed. We also bought her a body pillow to help her have more comfort. And no off gassing or nasty chemicals. A great investment!

    My Body has never been so CALM for bedtime

    I stumbled into the Resthouse store a week and a half ago after a wool blanket in the window caught my eye. After spending time with Charlene and discussing my sleeping woes I left with multiple purchases over the course of two weeks. Charlene spent many minutes (about 30-45) explaining the benefits and history of the weighted blanket. I had inquired about it as I’ve heard DPS (deep pressure stimulation) can assist people with anxiety and depression by helping calm the body (which in turn calms the mind) for bedtime. I was skeptical, as it’s currently not considered “medical equipment” although most OT’s and PT’s think it is an item that could be abused if not prescribed appropriately. However, if it works for me, it’s a small price to pay and a non-pharmacological intervention to help me along through restless nights and endless thoughts. I went with the standard 10% of my body weight plus 2 for an 18 pound blanket and it’s perfect for me (I’m 5’4” and on a good day 162 lbs) The first night I used it I thought maybe it would be too hot and heavy through the night but I closed my eyes for a minute and woke up 10 hours later, which I haven’t done in almost 5 years. Then I thought, this is a fluke, and the next night I found it more comfortable to slide under for sleep, closed my eyes and slept for 8.5 hours (likely would have been longer had my alarm not gone off for work) I removed the blanket for the next two nights, tossed, turned, woke up several times and just couldn’t shake the restlessness that I had been battling prior to night one with the blanket. Thank you Charlene and the rest of the staff at Resthouse for changing my sleep for the better! I appreciate it more then you’ll ever know.

    Best sleeps of my life

    I have been struggling with sleep for months now, and I was beginning to face the consequences hard. This weighted blanket has been a game changer. The gentle pressure helps me to relax, fall asleep quickly and stay asleep all night. Not only that, but I am sleeping deeper and waking up energized. These things are magic!
