Each Weighted By Design® custom weighted blanket is handcrafted with love and designed to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Our luxury blankets can alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, and assist with regulating the body when experiencing sensory overload. Weighted By Design® blankets are designed with both luxury and functionality in mind.
COLOR/PATTERN: Elephants Flannel and Amethyst Embossed Minky
GLASS BEAD FILL: Cooling glass micro beads are lead-free and do not retain body heat for a better night’s rest. We do not make blankets with traditional bulky plastic poly-pellets for health and environmental reasons. The fine glass micro beads evenly conform to the body and are completely silent.
Weighted By Design® custom weighted blankets will help soothe, calm, and regulate the central nervous system and can be a great benefit to people with Autism, Anxiety, ADD/ADHD, Insomnia, PTSD, Restless Leg Syndrome, and many other health conditions.* Lower your cortisol level (stress hormones) and increase your serotonin level with the deep tissue proprioceptive input of a custom weighted blanket made just for you!
CHOOSING THE BEST WEIGHT FOR YOUR CUSTOM WEIGHTED BLANKET: To choose the best therapeutic weight, your blanket should be approximately 10% of your body weight plus 1–2 pounds. For example, a 55 pound child should use a 5–7 pound weighted blanket. Please contact us if you need assistance choosing the appropriate weight or take a look at the guide by National Autism Resources here.
CARING FOR YOUR CUSTOM WEIGHTED BLANKET: Frequent laundering will shorten the lifespan of your weighted blanket. Because your custom weighted blanket is an investment, we recommend hand washing or spot cleaning your blanket with a mild detergent and lightly drying on low heat.
