Hush Blankets Launches Cooling Weighted Blanket on Kickstarter

Following the success of its first product, the Hush Blanket—a weighted blanket designed to ease anxiety and assist sleep—Hush Blankets, Inc. launched Hush Iced, a lighter, cooler weighted blanket, on Kickstarter.

Hush Iced uses the same weight-distribution technology as the Hush Blanket but incorporates a lighter-weight cover that is cool to the touch. “We heard from customers that they would like to see a lighter, cooler blanket for the summer,” says company co-founder Lior Ohayon. Hush Iced uses a unique bamboo-and-cotton blend that wicks away sweat.

The company claims that the weighted blankets relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged. They help increase serotonin and melatonin levels and decrease cortisol levels, and so help improve people’s mood and restful sleep, the blankets’ makers report. For best results, they say, the weighted blanket should weigh about 10 percent of a person’s body weight.

The Hush Iced blanket is available on Kickstarter in standard (48” x 78”) and queen (60” x 80”) sizes and comes with a 100-night, money-back guarantee. For more information, visit
