WHY WEIGHTED BLANKETS?

- Weighted blankets are a wonderful drug free tool for people with Autism, ADHD, Asperger’s, Anxiety, Depression, Stress, PTSD, restless leg syndrome or any other sensory disorder. The weight of the blanket creates a soothing effect and can quickly calm the nerves of the child or adult.

- The weight of the blankets causes your brain to release endorphin and serotonin which aid in promoting restfulness and relaxation.

- Get a good nights sleep again! Weighted blankets provide a sense of comfort and security so people who struggle with sleeplessness can finally sleep soundly.


HANDMADE IN TEXAS!

- The weighted material is sewn into side-by-side 5x5 inch pockets with each pocket holding the same amount of weight so that the weight is evenly distributed throughout the blanket.

- We use 2mm non toxic Glass Beads to fill our blanket. Many other companies will use larger poly pellets which are the size of lentils, bumpy and uncomfortable. Our glass beads are smooth, silica free and tiny (about the size of a grain of couscous) which means that your blanket will be smooth and less bulky. Glass also acts as a natural heat regulator and will keep you at a comfortable temperature while you sleep.


SIZING:

3 sizes available:

- SMALL (Child Size) this size is appropriate for a young CHILD or could be used for focused pressure on the lap or leg area in adults. Many people get this size for RLS. Pre-filled blanket is approximately 30x50 inches and would cover a child up to about 4'5.

- MEDIUM (Throw Size) this size is the most popular as it offers a nice portable option to go from bed to couch with ease. Pre-filled blanket is approximately 40x63 inches. This blanket covers from neck to toes on someone up to around 5'8.

- We DO NOT use any fluffy filling or extra fabric layers in making our blankets. Adding extra fillings/layers can cause allergens or mold to accumulate if the blanket is not laundered properly.

- All Blankets are sewn with 5x5 inch pockets which hold the evenly distributed weighted glass beads. Please be aware that the weighted beads are not glued into one place on the fabric and can shift around inside the small pocket during use.

- It is HIGHLY recommended that you consult with your doctor or therapist before using any weighted product. This is for your safety and weighted products should only be used at the guidance of your doctor of therapist.

- Weighted blankets should NEVER be used to restrain any individual. Do not use a weighted blanket on a child or adult that cannot remove the blanket independently.
