WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A WEIGHTED BLANKET?
Anyone who wants to feel calm and relax can use a weighted blanket. Weighted blankets are commonly used for anxiety, autism, PTSD, restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, stress, and insomnia.
We do not recommend weighted blankets for children under three years old or people with circulatory disorders.
Please check with your physician to make sure that a weighted blanket is right for you.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE AND WEIGHT TO GET?
We offer four sizes:
Small 42x48 — recommended for children
Medium 42x60 - recommended as a throw or for older children
Large 42x72 (approximately twin size) - recommended for adults over 5’2”
Extra Large 54x72 - recommended for adults
The weight of the blanket should be 10% of the users body weight plus 1-2 lbs.

ARE WEIGHTED BLANKETS HOT?
Depending on the fabric, a weighted blanket can be hot. We custom design every blanket so to fit the needs of the user. We can use more breathable fabrics for those who tend to get hot.
WHY ARE GLASS BEADS BETTER THAN POLY PELLETS?
We started out using poly pellets, like most weighted blanket companies. However, my daughter could not stand the feel of the poly pellets in the blanket. They made the blanket bulky and they made a shuffling noise every time she moved.
After years of research and development, we found the perfect size glass bead to make our weighted blankets less bulky and less noisy. We also distribute the glass beads evenly in a liner between the fabric. This makes our blankets more luxurious since they do not have stitching and squares on the outside.
The glass beads are much more dense than poly pellets, giving you the weight you need without the bulk and rough feel. They are small enough to give a smooth feel, but large enough to stay in the blanket.
HOW DO I WASH MY BLANKET?
Our weighted blankets are machine washable on gentle/cold. Hang to dry until damp, then toss in the dryer on low or no heat to fluff!
