THE FACTS:

WHAT IS A WEIGHTED BLANKET?

Studies have shown the positive impact provided by weighted blankets for those with ADD, Autism, PTSD, insomnia, and anxiety. The Deep Touch Stimulation provided by a blanket 8-12% of your body weight produces a  swaddling effect that helps regulate moods and promotes sleep by increasing serotonin and melatonin.

THE CHALLENGE

While we loved the "hug" effect of weighted blankets, we weren't crazy about the idea of plastic draped on our bodies and we couldn't understand why they were all so boring.  With our deep backgrounds in design and manufacturing, we rethought and created a redefined weighted blanket.  A sustainable and stylish solution to help you de-stress and get more sleep.

INTRODUCING

WEIGHTY ISSUE: PLASTIC BEADS vs. RECYCLED SHREDDED DENIM

Rather than ocean-clogging plastic pellets, each Holden & Hay blanket is hand-filled with 15 or 20lbs of QUIET, SOFT, WASHABLE, RECYCLED DENIM and cotton blends that won't toss with your every turn. Your old acid washed and mom jeans have been shredded and converted into a sustainable fill.  Not only does it offer you a more natural hug but the earth one as well, saving tons of textile waste from landfills.  

Our fill includes both post-industrial (new) and post-consumer (used) denim cotton/synthetic blends.

By using recycled denim we reduce our nation’s landfills  and through a closed loop recycling process, new products are created, further conserving our natural resources.

BETTER SLEEP IN MERINO WOOL

We sandwiched the shredded denim between shearling fleece and premium Italian Merino wool blend. Wool is naturally antibacterial, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, thermo-regulating, flame retardant AND PROVEN TO INCREASE SLEEP.

We discovered a unique, printable Merino wool blend and created Boulder-inspired designs to complement your well-curated home. This blanket is intended for more than just sleep – we want it to look good draped on you and your couch!

PROUDLY MADE IN OUR OWN FACTORY IN COLORADO.

We are supremely fortunate to own our own factory which means we are HANDS-ON, NIMBLE and control the entire process. It's a huge advantage to schedule our own production.

Risks and challenges

Being in the trade for a couple decades has thickened our skin. Because we know that material and manufacturing delays are par for the course, we have de-risked this like crazy.

By owning the production facility and pre-ordering materials for all Holiday Rewards, we were able to eliminate a ton of variables and common problems. Barring a zombie apocalypse or gravity changing direction, we fully expect to meet our production and shipping deadlines.

Heartfelt thanks for your support!
