Our weighted blankets are easy to wash (just pop in the machine) these blankets slip into a slip cover. Our blankets are made from superior quality material for durability, comfort and safety. The medium blankets measure approx 47” x 55” (120cm x 140cm). The medium size blanket is suitable for children and small adults up to around 5 ft (150cm).
How do I decide what the correct weight to use is?
Your best option is to ask your occupational therapist for a recommendation. If that is not an option, we recommend using this formula: For a medium size weighted blanket, 10% of the body weight plus 2 pounds. These recommended weights are shown as you make your weight selection.
What type of material do you use?
We use 100% cotton fabrics on the front of the blanket and anti-pilling fleece fabric on the underneath of the blanket to make it nice and cosy. Our inner weighted blanket is made from polycotton and wadding for comfort. For weight, we use High Density plastic pellets that are used to make toys. They are hypo-allergenic and non-toxic.
You can also purchase additional slipcovers to allow you to wash one so your child never has to be without their blanket.
How do you wash your weighted blankets and wraps?
Machine wash separately in warm or cold water. Tumble dry low. If your blanket has bright colours that might run, wash the first time in cold water. Do not Iron. Do not Microwave. Do not Dry Clean.
We will endeavor to have your weighted blanket out to you as quick as possible but please allow a 2-3 week lead time.
