Bamboo Weighted Blanket for Adult
Bamboo Weighted Blanket for Adult
Our weighted blankets have been designed specifically for the Australian weather where it is suitable for both hot or cold weather, unlike other types of weighted blankets which are designed for conditions in America or Europe.
Our Weighted Blankets are made from a breathable outer shell that is 100% organic bamboo (300 thread count), so it won't get too hot. As bamboo is thermo-regulating, it can be used all year round and is also suitable for hot sleepers.
The Milky Sheets™ Bamboo Weighted Blanket helps you sleep better by reducing stress and anxiety related insomnia. It is proven to be beneficial for those suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD and sensory processing disorders.
The blanket works by using “deep touch pressure” stimulation - applying gentle pressure to the body during the night to enable you to relax which has a similar effect of being hugged.
Please note this item is for the weighted blanket only. It can be used alone. However, we also recommend purchasing an outer cover for the blanket. We have cooling bamboo covers and dual sided cooling bamboo / ultra plush sensory minky dot covers.
Designed in Australia using standard Australian Sizing. Features inner loops to secure it with an outer cover (the outer cover can also be purchased separately).

Inside the Blanket
The Milky Sheets™ Bamboo Weighted Blanket features a 100% bamboo outer cover, which has a cool feeling that is perfect for hot sleepers and can be used all year round including Summer.
The filling consists of hypoallergenic, lead-free and non-toxic tiny glass pellets.
A thin layer of breathable microfiber is added over this for extra protection, followed by a lightweight and thin layer of polyester padding for extra comfort.
The outer bamboo shell is divided into 18 x 15 cm squares to ensure the beads are evenly distributed.
How Do Weighted Blankets Work?
The blanket works by using “deep touch pressure” stimulation - applying gentle pressure to the body during the night to enable you to relax which has a similar effect of being hugged. This type of stimulation helps you sleep by:
1. Relaxing the nervous system and encouraging the production of serotonin, which naturally turns into melatonin – the hormone that is responsible for regulating our sleep cycles.
2. Reducing cortisol, the ‘stress hormone’ that stimulates the nervous system which makes it difficult to fall asleep.
3. Releasing the ‘feel good’ hormone, which helps reduce anxiety, blood pressure and provides a calming effect to help you sleep.
