Frequently Asked Questions

The Rested Blanket

At the heart of all that we do, is our belief in providing a quality product, while caring for our planet. We are the only premium ethically and sustainably sourced and made weighted blanket supplier in Australia. We’ve consciously considered the entire supply chain process to ensure our blankets are planet-friendly. This extends all the way down to the eco-friendly box you received and the tape holding it together. We truly care about the quality of our products, which is why we ensure that our weighted blankets have evenly distributed weight to give you life-changing results.

Weighted blankets should be 10% of your body weight and evenly distributed over your body. Unlike other weighted blankets, our blankets all hit that mark, and thanks to the material and woven design they won’t leak beads or end up with an uneven distribution of weight. Plus, our blankets have a cosy feel to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing night’s rest.

Our blankets come in 3 sizes per colour, being 5kg, 7kgs for optimum weight dispersal. All of our blankets are handwoven and are as unique as you are, meaning that both size and weight can vary slightly from product to product. Please see the sizing guide to work out which size is right for you.

It’s important to note that all of our blankets are lovingly handmade, so not every blanket will be exactly the same size. To allow for the contraction of lycra in the blanket, there will be a level of leeway in terms of the exact sizing, this is not a design fault instead it is to be expected.

You bet they are. Wash your blanket separately in cool or warm water (max 30 C), on a delicate cycle. Ensure you lay it flat to dry and avoid hanging as this may cause the weave to stretch out.

Not at all. They are just the perfect level of cosiness. Due to the material and the woven design, the blanket is breathable so you don't overheat. In the cooler months, you can put it on top of a doona and in the warmer months, you can put it directly on you or on top of a sheet.

Our blankets are different to all of the others on the market! Ours are made from a luxe soft organic cotton and withstand piling very well as it is a natural fibers fabric.

For the same woven style as ours, the others on the market use a polyester blend fabric or an acrylic fabric which are much lower quality fabrics and are more likely to pile due to the high synthetic (polyester and acrylic) content. Synthetic fabrics are prone to piling, whereas natural fibres are not. Natural fibres are also much safer for you and the environment than synthetic fibres. 

The Hyber Nation Rested Blanket uses 100% fabric for the weight whereas our competitors use glass beads inside that rub against the fabric, and escape the fabric overtime so they rub against the outside of the fabric whilst escaping, adding to the piling, not to mention you feel like you are sleeping in a sandpit!
