Care & FAQ

How do I choose the correct weight for my blanket?

The suggested therapeutic weight for a child/teen blanket is 10% of body weight plus 1–2 pounds.  For an adult sized blanket, we recommend staying right around 10% of body weight.  Please note that 20+ pounds is an extremely heavy blanket and while we will make blankets up to 25 pounds on request, we recommend not going over 20 pounds regardless of body weight.  If in doubt, go 1–2 pounds lighter and/or contact us at Victoria@weightedbydesign.com and we will help you choose an appropriate weight.

How do I care for my blanket?

Our blankets are sewn with heavy thread, however frequent laundering will weaken the seam strength creating a potential for leakage.  Because your blanket is an investment, we recommend spot cleaning as needed or hand washing with cold water and mild detergent. Dry flat.  Weighted heating pads and neck wraps may be washed in a garment bag on gentle/delicate cycle, with cold water and mild detergent.  Dry in the dryer on low heat.
