Weighted blankets are used often to help people with sensory processing disorders, autism, dementia, restless legs syndrome, etc. They're also just plain cozy for those of us without any diagnosed conditions, but who appreciate nice heavy blankets.
Our weighted blankets are filled with poly beads. We use relatively small pockets (typically between 4-6 inches) to ensure even distribution of weight. Our blankets feature two full layers of flannel or cotton inside to create a nice pocket for the beads to keep them contained inside the blanket.
This listing is for a blanket made with flannel on one side and coordinating Minkee fleece on the other side. However, we can make them from any combination of washable fabrics that you wish. (We've made cotton/minkee, cotton/cotton, flannel/flannel, flannel/cotton, and cotton/regular fleece in the past.) Please contact us if you'd like one of these variations and we will make you a custom listing - cost may vary.
Please let us know when you check out what you'd like for fabric. You can see our current instock fabric here: wallypop.net/fabric - please choose a secondary option, as well, in the event we don't have enough of your first choice. Also please note that fabrics marked as Premium or Deluxe will have an increased cost and will require a custom listing. Just let us know if that's what you want! If nothing there trips your fancy, you can also browse at fabric.com (please be aware that there may be an upcharge depending on what you pick for fabric - we can provide some guidance if you wish to avoid this).
Our blankets are available in four stock sizes. THIS listing is for a size SMALL blanket, approx 41 in x 35 in.
Other available sizes are available.
How do you decide what weight? If you or your child works with an OT, it's best to ask them for a recommendation. If you don't have an OT available, a general recommendation is 10% of bodyweight plus 1 lb.
