DORMU: Weighted Blankets, Pillows, and Bedding

5. How long does it take to adjust to a weighted blanket?

Sleeping under a heavy weight may feel unnatural at first. Like any change to your sleep environment, it can take some time for both your mind and body to adjust. For most people, it takes between 1 and 2 weeks for their new blanket to work its wonders.

Pro-tip: If you’re using a blanket from our cooling series, then use it only with the bamboo cover it came with. Layering an additional duvet or cover will impede the breathability of the blanket, making it difficult to stay cool.

"We recommend sleeping under your weighted blanket for 10 nights in a row to condition your body and increase your quality of sleep."

And if you’re using our Snuggler blanket, try it with either just a single sheet below the blanket or by itself.

Your body will quickly adjust to the benefits of a weighted blanket. For some people this can take around 2 weeks, so we recommend using your chosen weighted blanket daily to maximise the benefits. Layering anything on top will trap the heat, not allowing air to flow between the weaves.
