What weight should my Weighted Blanket be?
Occupational Therapists suggest that an effective formula to calculate an ideal weight for a Weighted Blanket, is approximately 10% of the body weight. (Example: 150lb Individual needs a 15lb Weighted Blanket) Of course, we recommend that you should always consult your medical provider in selecting the appropriate weight for your specific situation.

What dimensional size Weighted Blanket should I order?
The size of Sensory Goods’ Weighted Blankets varies depending on the weight required for the individual and the body size of the intended user. Ideally, select a size the comfortably covers the individual who will be using the blanket - but not too much larger to achieve optimal deep tissue pressure. Our Small Weighted Blankets measure 30” x 48” and are available in total weights of 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 pound weights. Our Medium Weighted Blankets measure 42” x 58” and are available in one pound increments from 9 to13 lbs. Our Large Weighted Blanket measure 42” x 72” and are available in weights ranging from 14 to 20 pounds. Lastly, our Extra Large Weighted Blanket measures 58” x 80” and is available in weights in one pound increments of 21 to 25lbs.

What is used to fill Weighted Blankets?
We give all of our customers the option between 2 different filling options; glass beads and plastic beads. The glass beads are highly recommended because it is a fine, sand-like material, that lays softly on the body. The plastic beads are the original filling material used for Weighted Blankets and they are less dense, hard plastic material that make for a slightly bulkier finished product.

How do I wash and/or dry my Weighted Blanket?
All of Sensory Goods’ Weighted Blankets may be machine washed on cold in your washing machine at home, and may also be machine dried on air fluff (no heat). Please refer to our very specific Washing Instructions, which are included in every order.

What kind of fabrics are Weighted Blankets made of?
The standard Weighted Blanket is made with a fleece material on one side and flannel material on the opposing side. However, if the material you choose indicates that it is cotton, then the Weighted Blanket will be made with cotton on one side and flannel on the opposing side. You may also choose to have a cooler blanket made of cotton on both sides, as well as organic cotton options. You always have the option of customizing your fabric types and colors to meet your specific needs. Give us a call!
