I will work with you to take the guess work out of getting a weighted blanket. Each one is custom made.
There was an article published recently saying that 15lb blankets were a good all round weight for people. This is absolutely wrong. See more about this on my Articles Page and please, feel free to call me if you have questions. I would love to talk to you about this and hopefully be of help.
Weighted blankets are therapeutic. These blankets can help with PTSD, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, Restless Leg Syndrome, Parkinson's, and other sleep disorder problems. I want to make the best weighted blanket for you.
Even though most of the big stores are carrying weighted blankets, getting the right one is important. I will work with you face to face to make sure your blanket is the right weight, just for you. Also, You Get To Choose The Fabric for your cover and the cover is included in the price! Take a look at the fabric selection page.
Both of my boys are on the Autism Spectrum. I have 19 years of experience working with special needs and is the reason I started making weighted blankets. I have been making them for over seven years and have learned that custom weighted blankets are the best. I also make weighted lap pads and collars, and I can take special orders.
My blankets are super soft and I custom make each one. They are all approximately 50"x70". I have found that that is an excellent size because you won't be tucking it in like you do a regular blanket and you can easily take it with you to your favorite easy chair to help you relax. I do make custom sizes for larger people, but for the most part, this has been a good size.
I use three materials to make my blankets: Cuddly soft fleece, polished aquarium gravel, and Velcro. For blankets under 10lbs, they are made with the fleece and aquarium gravel sewn into pockets. At this weight, they can be machine washed and dried. Blankets over 10lb are made in two halves. The weighted is evenly distributed between the top and bottom piece and the two pieces Velcro together. That way each separate piece can be machine washed and dried separately. Most washing machines and driers cannot handle loads over 10lbs. The cover is included in the price. You do not pay extra for it.
I started using aquarium gravel from the start: 7 years ago. It is inexpensive and machine wash and dry. Over the years, I have looked into other fillers, but they were either extremely expensive, which would force me to almost double my prices or not machine washable, at all. I have had no complaints, over the years, about the gravel and it continues to work well and helps me keep my prices down.
Blankets under 10lbs are $100.00. Blankets over 10lbs are $130.00.
I guarantee each blanket. If it does not work for you, I will refund your money. However, if it looks like it has been abused and has started leaking gravel, I will do what I can to fix the problem, but I will not refund any money.
Come on in and lets talk. I would love to make the best blanket for you or your loved one. Good sleep is important.
