Affordable, Custom Made Weighted Blankets

About the Blankets:
The base price is $90 for a 15lb adult sized blanket. Each extra pound is $2, and if you want lighter than 15 lbs, subtract $2. For example, a 17lb blanket is $94. A 13 lb blanket is $86. Shipping is an additional cost and is determined by the zip code of where the blanket is being sent. Shipping usually falls between $10 and $25.
The base price of a Child-Sized blanket (36"x54") is $50 for 5 lbs. Scroll down for a detailed pricing list.

These are handmade weighted blankets. The standard size is 40" x 72", but if you want a different size, just ask!

They are made from a very soft flannel (brushed cotton) fabric. It is 100% cotton and washed and dried before the blanket is made. I use unscented, hypoallergenic washing detergent. I can also use cotton quilting fabric, which is smooth but not soft, and is lighter weight than flannel, so it is cooler. Minky (plain or dot) is a possibility too, but only for one side of the blanket (so I would use cotton or flannel on the other side). The filling is plastic poly pellets (the same type of material that's in beanie babies).

These blankets are great for anyone with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, or anyone who likes Pressure Therapy!

Children should use smaller and lighter blankets than adults. Find the weight for a child's blanket by taking 10% of their body weight + 1 lb. A 70 lb child, for example, would use an 8 lb blanket. A blanket 30-36" wide might be better suited. For the length, I suggest about 8-12" longer than the child is tall, to allow room for growth. I can make any size or weight.

Adults sometimes prefer blankets heavier than the formula gives. (A 130 lb person might prefer a 17 lb blanket, for example.) If in doubt, go on the lighter side.

CAUTION: A person should never use a weighted blanket unless they are capable of removing it.

These blankets are machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle in cold water, and dry on low heat. I advise washing it only when absolutely necessary, since washing weakens the fabric and can shorten the life of your blanket. Wash only in a washing machine that does not have an agitator.

To protect your blanket, I recommend putting a fitted sheet over it, which will help keep it clean and provide a barrier against snagging or tearing from pet claws or bed frames. I can also make blanket covers specifically for your blanket, out of any fabric and with snaps along the bottom edge to secure the cover.

If you have any special requests, please let me know and I'll be happy to work with you. I have made weighted scarves and weighted lap pads as well.

If you are in need of a blanket but can't afford it, please don't hesitate to contact me, as I still may be able to help you. I occasionally get donations I can use to put toward the making of blankets, and also work with a company that does giveaways for autistic people in need of blankets. I have also made a very detailed guide of how to make a weighted blanket if you already know how to sew.

I'm an autistic 20-something who loves making blankets. My goal is to make them as affordable as possible while still maintaining quality and durability. I was inspired when I wanted a weighted blanket for myself but couldn't afford the $200 most places asked for a twin sized blanket. So I figured out how to make them for myself, and now I've been making them for others.

Blankets can be machine washed, but I recommend hand washing when possible to reduce wear and tear. If need be, wash in a machine without an agitator on gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat.
