The Eco Weighted Blanket
- Organic cotton, natural dyes & glass beads
Calm & self-regulation
- Reduces sensory overload, ADHD & anxiety
What are weighted blankets?
Weighted blankets apply Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) through their gentle yet firm weight across your whole body. This signals your nervous system to relax, bringing you into a calm parasympathetic state. It’s like getting a giant hug, anytime you want!
Why are Earth Blankets unique?
Our blankets are each handmade with breathable organic cotton, natural plant dyes and certified lead-free glass beads. We choose materials that are the safest and cleanest for the health and wellbeing of our customers and our planet.

Our 6 year-old son has greatly benefitted from his Earth Blanket. It really helps him settle down to sleep at night and he uses it every night! We also appreciate that it is made from all natural materials.

My Earth Blanket is so calming. One of the best things I have ever spent money on!
Cody Jackson, Clinical Mental Health Counselor & Play therapist
I've been using my blanket regularly and I love it. It feels well-made and is aesthetically pleasing. I use it when feeling anxious or restless, or just to relax in the evenings while reading. It's lovely and I associate it with calm, happy feelings.
Robin Athey, Somatic Coach
What first drew me to this blanket was its conscious sourcing. I love the prints. And I love the way my nervous system sinks layers deeper into rest when I use it. I like to use the blanket at the end of a long day, when my energy is swirling. It grounds me and helps me to sleep more easily. For that, alone, it’s worth the investment.
Lorraine Fairmont, Certified Nurse Practitioner
My Earth Blanket gives me feedback from the outer perimeter of my being and hence brings me back to myself quite quickly. It ushers in a deeper calm and sense of peace.

"I highly recommend to all my loved ones to use Earth Blankets. They are very soothing and calming to my nervous system. It feels like I'm being protected and allows for deeper rest and meditation. I love using it after a long, tiring day because it helps me relax."
Occupational Therapist Accredited
Earth Blankets are designed under the guidance of a certified Occupational Therapist, Ana do Valle (OTR, SEP), to promote maximum healing benefits. Ana says:
"I have used and prescribed weighted blankets for the past 30 years and I highly recommend Earth Blankets. The glass beads drape around your body, allowing for soothing contact with the skin. The nerve endings respond well to the cool feeling of the beads, as oftentimes children feel too hot using other blankets, but they like Earth Blankets! The patterns and fabrics chosen are soft and invite the body to regulate and be calm."
How it works
The deep pressure provided by Earth Blankets triggers the release of neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin and dopamine, which are responsible for regulating your mood, sleep, and metabolism. Weighted blankets have been shown in several studies to reduce anxiety and stress, improve the quality and quantity of sleep, increase focus and embodiment and support sensory and other disorders.
Our company is committed to making products that are good for you and the planet, which is why our blankets are made with only natural elements. Earth Blankets seek out the most sustainable materials out there from organic fibers, to plant dyes, to glass beads and plastic-free packaging. Our blankets come with a washable duvet cover to protect your weighted blanket and make it easier to clean.
Finding your match
We offer different sized blankets to match the needs of each unique individual. Choosing a blanket that is closest to your body size will ensure that you are getting the full benefits of your blanket's weight. We recommend using a blanket that is 5-7% of your bodyweight, unless there is a case of trauma or extreme sensory overload. In this case 10% is recommended, as well as for those who prefer their blanket to be on the heavier side. Read more
