Big Box Store or Custom?
Yep..weighted blankets are everywhere these days. Big box stores sell them for less than $100, but when examined, it’s obvious they are mass produced and possibly dry clean ONLY. Pretty soon, everyone will have one just like their neighbors. And they only have 2 or 3 different weights. What does that mean? One size fits all? Is that okay? What about color? Yes, gray or white or blue are colors. But are those colors unique to you?
Let’s build a weighted blanket that is unique to you. Any color you wish and a weight that is suited to you. We involve you fully in the design of your blanket. Your satisfaction is our goal and we know you will have many years of use.
- High quality cotton fabric for top and back
- High quality Shannon cuddle minky for back also available
- Pockets are 4.5″ to 5″ for best overall weight distribution
- Filler – Poly Pellets or Glass Beads
- Colors you love
- Size perfect for you.
These blankets are intended for personal use. That’s why you will see sizes that are common for a single person.
Each pocket is filled with non toxic polypropylene pellets or glass beads evenly distributed over the blanket to achieve overall sensory pressure and provide comfort to the person. Each row and column has 2-3 rows of stitching for durability. DO NOT use a blanket that is too heavy for the user.
Weighted blankets provide a sense of security and gentle pressure for a variety of issues.
They are known to help with:
- Sensory processing
- Restless leg syndrome
- Dementia or Alzheimers
Blankets are made to order – Each sale is final.
