Why we don't use glass beads?
Glass Beads – While glass beads, which are typically used in the abrasives industry to restore automobiles and to remove burrs from metals (1) have become more common in weighted blankets, they have several drawbacks. They can chip or break when inside the blanket developing sharp edges which can cut through the stitching. More seriously there is some concern that glass beads may contain toxic materials such as lead or arsenic which is a serious health hazard (2) and in some finely ground glass beads you may find small pieces of metal which makes them unsuitable to be used when having an MRI in a hospital setting.

    Hello! My name is Irlanda and I'm a graduate of Universidad Nacional de Colombia. I have been involved helping those on the autism spectrum for many years. So creating a store where I could provide high quality weighted blankets was a dream come true

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

WASHING: - Machine wash separately in warm or cold water in a front loading machine. (Top loading machines typically have agitators which can damage the fabric)

DRYING: - Tumble dry on low/delicate cycle. If you have a goose down filled blanket this might require several hours of drying.

- Do NOT iron.
- Do NOT dry in a microwave oven
- Do NOT use bleach or fabric softener

Safety Guidelines

1. ALWAYS check the weight of the blanket that you purchase with a medical professional to be certain it is the correct weight for the person using it. While we will try to help by making recommendations when asked, these are only suggestions. You should ALWAYS confirm the weight/pressure with a medical professional before making your purchase.

2. NEVER use a weighted blanket as a restraint or punishment

3. NEVER use your weighted blanket as a "tent" or allow children to crawl underneath it, as this creates a suffocation risk.

4. NEVER use a weighted blanket in a crib or with an infant!

5. If you have any other safety concerns please contact us at info@redbarnblankets.com and we will try our best to help.

Fabric Colors and Chalk Lines:

1. While every effort is made to represent color accurately, every monitor is different and we cannot guarantee the colors you see match the colors of actual fabric.

2. You may notice some colored lines along the seams when you receive your blanket. This is simply chalk (non-toxic) used to mark the fabric for cutting and sewing it can be removed with a damp cloth or in the wash.
