Frequently Asked Questions

Weighted Blankets: How do they work?


Weighted blankets provide Deep Touch Pressure, or DTP, triggering the release of calming hormones serotonin and dopamine. With evenly distributed weight, weighted blankets provide comfort to those with anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, PTSD and Restless Leg Syndrome. It's like a warm hug for your senses!




Weighted Blankets: What size should I get?


When choosing a weighted blanket, it important to remember they are intended to fit the user, not necessarily a bed. The general guideline for a weighted blanket is 10% + 1lb of the users body weight. Studies have shown this calculation is best for optimal benefit. Use the following guide to help you select the best weighted blanket size for you!




Weighted Blankets: What's inside?


Batting Available for Small and Medium sizes only. Batting is a soft polyester that adds warmth and softness to weighted blankets. If you are a hot sleeper, you may want to bypass this option. ($5 add on for Batting) Plastic Poly Pellets or Glass Micro Beads While both are non-toxic, glass is much denser (heavier) therefore less is needed to produce the same blanket weight as its plastic counterpart. Glass is also quieter- no “sloshing” sounds when the blanket is moved compared to plastic. ($10 add on for Micro Glass Beads)




Weighted Blankets: Are they washable?


Yes! Machine wash cool or warm, tumble dry low or lay flat. For blankets heavier than 12lbs, it is best to use a large machine at your local laundromat, as the weight may effect the balance of your home machine. Do not iron, bleach or microwave.
