Custom Weighted Blanket
Custom Weighted Blanket
Custom Weighted Blankets can be made to your specifications. To order a custom weighted blanket, please fill out the weighted blanket questionnaire. Price will be determined by size, weight, and fabric choices.
Why Use a Weighted Blanket?
Our bodies are designed to respond to deep pressure input and associate this sensation with relaxation. Like a firm hug, weighted blankets help us feel secure, grounded, and safe.
Who Benefits from Using a Weighted Blanket?
Adults, teens, and children can benefit from weighted blanket therapy. Weighted blankets are a safe and effective non-drug therapy for anyone seeking a solution for loss of sleep and relaxation. Weighted therapy tools are commonly used with children and adults who have been diagnosed with: ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer's, Anxiety Disorders, Bi-Polar Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson's, Sleep Disorders, and many more.
Choosing the Right Size:
The formula commonly used and recommended for children and young teens by Licensed Therapists is 10% of the body weight plus 1 or 2 pounds. In older teens and adults this formula can be quite heavy so please consult your healthcare professional if you are not sure which weight and size is right for you.
Be sure to consider how you plan to use your weighted blanket as this can influence what size you need to order. A weighted blanket can be used to calm and relax in various ways by laying it across the lap or torso, wrapping around the shoulders, covering just the legs or covering the whole body for sleeping.

Other Important Information
Fabric will be selected based on input provided at the time the order is placed. I do not pre-purchase fabric. Once you place your order I will go shopping for something that fits the profile you provide (type of fabric, interests, color preferences...).
I am willing to work with you to determine the best size/fit for you or your child. Heavier and larger is not always better! Much is dependent upon the needs of the person who will be using the blanket.
Blankets will be completed within 4 weeks from the order date. There is no shipping and handling fee for local orders provided you are willing to come to my home for pick-up.
