  • Handmade

We are starting to make all of our weighted blanket products with glass beads. As supply chain issues work themselves out and we stock plastic polly pellets again this listing can be used to ensure you receive glass bead fill.

**Please note, glass beads CANNOT be added to a READY TO SHIP blanket**

Glass beads are a great alternative to people who are extra sensitive to textures and sounds. These beads inside the blanket are not as bulky as the traditional poly pellets used in weighted blankets and no not make any noise when shifting inside the blanket.

Please note: There are some compatibility issues with using glass beads with certain fabrics. Most minky fabrics are compatible but some are not. Please contact us prior to ordering if you have concerns about your upgrade. ALL "dot" minky is compatible; however some of the specialty minky (i.e. "Sherpa" minky, "Llama" minky, and shaggy minkys) have a weave that is too loose to hold glass beads. Thank you for understanding.

Blankets made with glass beads remain machine washable and dryer safe.

You MUST purchase a blanket in addition to this listing. This is strictly an upgrade of material used to make your new weighted blanket.

*Please Note* Due to the size and consistency of the glass beads some materials cannot be used to create a weighted blanket with glass beads. Weave of fabric will determine eligibility. If glass beads cannot be used you will be notified and your upgrade will be canceled.

THIS IS NOT A LISTING TO BE USED AS A "SUPPLY." This is NOT a craft supply listing.
All Sales Final, with the exception of special order fabrics that are found upon receipt of fabric that glass beads are not compatible. In that case, a full refund for the glass upgrade will be issued and traditional pellets will be used to fill your new blanket.

As with any handmade item, there will be some variation on inch measurement and weight. Tape measures, quilting rules, yard sticks, and other measuring tools can and will measure an "inch" a bit different. We do our best to produce your finished product as close to the advertised dimension and weight as possible. Also, to ensure that your item remains in NEW condition, and to avoid any ALLERGY interactions, we DO NOT PREWASH FABRIC. After you receive your item, should you choose to wash-please note, the majority of our products are made with cotton or other natural fibers that can shrink during the laundering process.


The estimated delivery date is based on your purchase date, the recipient's location (actual or inferred), the seller's processing time and location, and the shipping carrier.

Other factors—such as shipping carrier delays or placing an order on weekend/holiday—may push the arrival of your item beyond this date.

I'm so glad that I chose the glass beads. They feel like course sand and my blanket is very flat without the bulk of the poly beads.

Absolutely LOVED the unicorn, butterfly, rainbow weighted blanket with glass beads that I bought for my granddaughter! It arrived very quickly and is just perfect! Thank you so much! I need to order one for me... it felt so good!

I purchased the glass bead upgrade because I wanted my blanket to be smoother/flatter, and I am also sensitive to bumpy textures. I couldn't be happier with my blanket, and I love that the glass beads are smooth and small. It does make a little bit of sound when moving around as the beads shift, but it's not loud or disruptive, even though I am sensitive to sounds. I highly recommend the glass beads!
