The Mela Weighted Blanket is designed to improve sleep, anxiety, and stress, all at a reasonable price.
The founder's Matt and Sam developed this weighted blanket to end sleepless nights that they had experienced first hand from friends and family.
Since the Mela Weighted Blanket was released in the UK, they have rolled out a wide range of additional products from sleeping eye masks all the way to introducing a complete eucalyptus sleeping range.
It is is important to note that Mela is part of an ever-growing business community where they feel socially responsible to help give back to the community. So when Mela first started they incorporated a giving back scheme that donates a portion of every sale to their charity partners.
Mela Weighted Blanket Construction
This weighted blanket from Mela is made from glass pellets and an outer cotton shell.
The glass pellets which give the blanket its weight and help mould the entire blanket around your body are anti-rustle and SGS certified. You may be wondering what that exactly means. Well, this just means Mela can demonstrate that their products, processes, systems or services are compliant with national regulations and standards.
The shell keeping the glass pellets is made from 100% cotton. The benefits of cotton is that it is naturally temperature regulating, soft on the skin and durable. This otter shell is also stitched in a somewhat diamond pattern to keep the pellets equally spread apart, ensuring the weighted blanket moulds to your body shape in an even fashion.
Additionally, the Mela blanket and cover (which we will get into shortly) are Oeko-Tex certified which mean it is free from harmful chemicals, keeping their products in line with their goal.
At Mela, our goal is to help the world feel better and sleep better. We create high quality, natural products that improve sleep.
As well as keeping in line with their natural strategy, Mela has also made its weighted blanket practical. It can be machine washed on a gentle cold cycle at a maximum of 30°C.

Weighted Blanket Design & Fit
There are numerous studies showing that participants found it easier to settle down when given a weighted blanket to sleep.
The Mela is designed to create a sense of calmness which help your brain and body switch off. This is commonly known in the weighted blanket community (did i just say that) as deep touch pressure.
The Mela Weighted blanket, like all weighted blankets are designed to be used individually (for optimal weight distribution reasons). That means we recommend each person to get his or her own.
Trial & Guarantee
A great trend which we first noticed from the bed in a box concept with their 30, 100 or 365-night mattress trials seemed to have spilt over into other industries.
The Mela Blanket also includes a 30-night trial. This means if you are not in love with it in that time frame, you can return it for a full refund (just remember to read all the fine print to be extra sure how it all works). By the way the returns are sent to their partner homeless centre.
Additionally, there is a 1-year manufacturers warranty which is pretty standard in this industry.
Delivery time frames are currently around 2-4 working days and they are shipped using Royal Mail or DPD.
The Mela Comfort Weighted Blanket also comes neatly boxed with a thank you message attached to the inside and a instruction/ care manual.
