What is a Weighted Blanket?
Weighted blankets provide a gentle pressure on the body which helps people with insomnia, anxiety, autism, sleeping or sensory processing disorders, restless leg syndrome or stress feel a sense of calmness and relaxation.
Weighted blankets mimic deep pressure touch stimulation (DPTS) which releases serotonin, a neurotransmitter that creates the feeling of calm and converts to melatonin, a hormone that provides calm and sleep.
Weighted blankets are not for everyone on the spectrum, but we are pleased to know from some parents that our weighted blankets have brought calm and comfort to their children.
Each weighted blanket is hand crafted and will cover and comfort you year-round.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE YOU ASK?
It's all about the fabric. When you combine a soft, durable, cotton and poly blend which is very light and airy with a medium weight plush chenille that is super soft, the result is a perfect fit that gives you the best of both worlds.
Then, there's the virgin polypropylene pellets that we use. They are odorless, nontoxic, hypoallergenic and BPA free. They are not noisy. They are well sewn into each pocket by a professional.
All of our weighted blankets can be machine washed and dried. SO, YOU DON'T NEED A COVER FOR OUR BLANKETS.
