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.
- 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
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.
