Remy’s amazing new weighted blanket has been released to help reduce stress and anxiety.

Named ‘The Lounger’, the blanket comes from Remy who aim to help give people a better nights sleep with its products.

This particular throw has been launched to help people relax through lockdown, which has impacted many people’s mental health over the past 12 months.

The chunky hand-knit throw is available in two weight categories of 6kg or 8kg, with the lighter blanket sized at 100cmx150cm and the heavier blanket at 120cmx180cm in size.

It’s priced at £189 on the Remy website, but you can get 15 per cent off the product by using the exclusive code, PinkNews15.

You can also choose from four colours to match your interior décor including forest green, mustard yellow, cloudy grey and deep blue.

The unique weight of the blanket is created from 100 per cent cotton chunky weaves rather than traditional glass beads that typically makes up a standard throw.

Studies have shown sleeping under weight can provide a beneficial calming and relaxing effect, helping to reduce stress and anxiety as well as helping you fall asleep faster, for longer and more deeply.

This is because the weight stimulates the production of serotonin (happiness hormone), reduces cortisol (stress hormone) and increases melatonin (sleep hormone).

While many weighted blankets are designed and used for medical aid, Remy have created this one as a stylish home accessory for lounging, napping or sleeping at night.


Other products available from Remy include The Sleeper, the original and most popular weighted blanket, The Junior, designed especially for kids, and Sleeper Covers.
