Weighted Blankets

Sleep well, dream well, be well….

The benefits of a weighted blanket are for everyone. These weighted blankets have been used by a variety of individuals including but not limited to those with ADD, ADHD, developmental disabilities, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, cerebral palsy, anxiety disorder, Alzheimer’s and other disorders.

The general rule for the most therapeutic weight is 10% of a person’s body weight, though everyone’s needs are different. We’ve found that our 5′ x 3′ 11 lb. blanket works well for most adults.

The Scoop on Weighted Blankets

A few things you should know about your weighted blanket!  

It’s not really a blanket; it’s intended to be used for weight only, not warmth (though of course you can use it with your regular sheets and blankets).  The general rule for the most therapeutic weight is 10% of a person’s body weight, though everyone’s needs are different. We’ve found that our 5′ x 3′ 11 lb. blanket works well for most adults.

While we’ve had requests to make heavier and larger blankets in order to fit a specific bed size, we’ve found that due to the design of the blanket this is not possible; it makes the blanket too cumbersome (not to mention the shipping costs involved!). If you are an adult and feel you need more weight, we suggest buying two blankets and using them together.

We offer blankets in these sizes:

  • Crib-2×3  5 lbs
  • Lap 3×3   7 lbs
  • Square bed 4×3.5   9 lbs
  • Rectangular Bed 5×3   11 lb

When customizing your blanket please let us know what kind of fabric your prefer:

  • 100% cotton
  • 100% organic cotton

You can also tell us what color(s) or color scheme, flowers, stripes,trucks, polka dots, etc. that you’d like to have… just use the comment box during checkout to let us know.  We will match your choice as closely as possible.

When you receive your blanket it may feel a bit stiff!  The blanket will soften as you work it in, much like a new pair of shoes, and soon it will be more flexible.
