Weighted Blankets

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do you have a hard time falling asleep?  Do you toss a lot at night?  Do you have restless leg syndrome?  Do you deal with anxiety or stress?  Do you or do you have a child who is ADD or ADHD?  Do you know someone who is autistic?    These are some of the things that some people struggle with and they have discovered that a weighted blanket helps to calm them down and sleep better.   A weighted blanket gives the person just enough pressure on their body that it feels comfy, cozy, and they feel calm.

I started making weighted blankets for people.  I have customers telling me that they are so thankful that I made them one.  One customer said, “It’s worth the money I spent.”

Another customer told me that her son who is autistic now sleeps through the night.  Before she ordered him a blanket, he would get up at night multiple times.

I make the blankets filled with Poly Pellets that are machine washable and dryable, hypo-allernic, non-toxic and BPA free, no oder.

I use 100% cotton material unless customer requests different.

They are machine washable.  Use gentle detergent, no fabric softner or dryer sheets.  Check to make sure your dryer can handle the weight too.   Cool dry or hang dry.

The washer’s weight capacity varies depending on your washing machine.   Check to see if your machine can handle the weight.   If not, please be kind to your home washer and dryer by washing  your blanket in a commercial washer instead.

  1. This is truly one of the best purchases I have ever made! I’m ADD and have always had trouble getting a restful night of sleep, I bought one from Regina and it has truly helped me get a more restful night of sleep! The weight of it helps give my body a feeling of calmness. It’s hard to explain, but it is so amazing! It even helps quiet my mind faster at night, because my body is calmer! It was been worth every penny plus more! I know it was made with caring, loving hands, and the print Regina chose was beautiful!

    1. Michelle,
