FAQs


Buying a weighted blanket is an investment, so we want to make sure you get the one that is right for you the first time.  We've compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions.  We hopes this helps with making a selection.

 

What size blanket should I choose?

Weighted blankets should be sized to cover your body, not your bed!  A blanket that is too large may hang over the side of your bed, and its weight may cause it to slide off.  Ideally, your blanket will cover your feet and extend to the top of your shoulders.  The small blanket (50" long) is good for young children and the elderly as it is lighter in weight and is more manageable.  Our medium blanket (5ft long) is great for older children and comes in weight up to 15lbs.  Teenagers and adults usually choose the large blanket (6ft long); however some customers have purchased the large blanket for children to have something to grow into.

 

How do I choose a weight for my blanket?

The general guidelines for selecting the blanket weight for is to calculate 10% of body weight plus a pound or two. Adults should use ideal body weight instead of actual body weight if those two are very different. Please refer to our weight chart.  Keep in mind everyone is different.  Some people like a lot of pressure and weight so they would choose a heavier blanket, while others want only a little bit of extra weight.  If buying for a child, consider their current weight and how much they will grow in the next few years.

Can I wash my blanket?

Yes, you can!  Wash your blanket on a delicate cycle in a machine without an agitator.  Tumble dry on low or hang to dry.  Do not use bleach as that could weaken the fabric and thread. 

Do you make blankets for young children?

Do not purchase a blanket for a child under 2 years of age.  The blanket should never go past the shoulders or cover the head.  Weighted blankets should never be used to restrain a child or restrict their movement.  The blanket should not be too heavy for the child to remove. 

 

I would like to get a blanket for my grandmother.  What size and weight should I choose?

If you are ordering a blanket for an elderly person to use in bed, it is best to reduce the weight by a few pounds.  They need a blanket that is easy to remove, so not too heavy.  A small blanket is best for use in a chair or to just lay over the legs.  The blanket should never go past the shoulders or cover the head.  Weighted blankets should never be used to restrain a person or restrict their movement.
