FAQ


Who makes Gravity?

Gravity is a group of ex-insomniacs who passionately believe the world needs help falling and staying asleep. Before we launched our first product, the Gravity Blanket, we pored over medical research on the effects of deep touch pressure stimulation. The results left us stunned: weighted blankets had a measurable impact on sleep quality, and as a result, better emotional, physical and cognitive health.

After raising $4.7M on Kickstarter in the spring of 2017, we quit our day jobs and started working full time to bring the Gravity Blanket to the world. We also began exploring other low-tech solutions that could help people get the rest they desperately need. Along the way, we often - and ironically - worked late into the night, and helped more that 50,000 people get a better night’s sleep. Today we’re researching and prototyping new products, all natural and backed by science, to further this mission. 

How long will it take my order to arrive?

It will take 7 - 10 days for your order to make its way from our warehouse to your door.

Do you ship internationally? 

Right now we’re only shipping to the United States and Canada. But stay tuned!

What are the dimensions of the Gravity Blanket?

The Gravity Blanket is 48”x 72” and is available in 15, 20 and 25 pounds.

Is your blanket machine washable?

Yes, both the inner layer and duvet are machine washable. For ongoing care, remove the cover before washing, and machine wash in cold water with similar colors, using chlorine bleach. Tumble dry on low and cool iron if needed. 

The Gravity Blanket can also be dry cleaned. 


Do you have plans to make the Gravity Blanket for queen and king sized beds?

Yes, more on this coming soon!

I tend to “sleep hot.” Can I still use the Gravity Blanket?

Yes! The Gravity Blanket is designed with a stitched grid to keep micro beads evenly distributed (no hot bunching!) and is made of breathable fabrics that improve airflow.

Can the Gravity Blanket be shared between couples at night?

Because the Gravity Blanket is meant to be a grounding experience, we don’t recommend trying to share with a partner who might want or need to adjust it throughout the night. It’s also currently only available in a size that accommodates one person.

Can anyone use the Gravity Blanket?

The Gravity Blanket should not be used by children under three years old or by any individual that weighs less than 50 pounds due to the following potential hazards:

Potential Suffocation Hazard: 
The Gravity Blanket should be used with care. To minimize safety risks, please ensure that the user can remove the blanket on their own, without any assistance. For children, individuals with disabilities, and the elderly, the guardian or caregiver will need to use discretion as to whether-or-not the Gravity Blanket can be used without risk. The Gravity Blanket should never be used as a form of punishment or restraint. Failure to follow these instructions could result in suffocation.

Potential Choking Hazard: 
The plastic poly-pellets used to weight the Gravity Blanket may be a choking hazard for young children. To protect against this, please ensure young children do not use blankets that are damaged, as the likelihood of poly-pellets becoming accessible is greater. We recommend checking for damages before and after putting  your blanket in the washing machine.
