About

Weight For It

Hi there! I'm Christine Hamre. I live in Moorhead, Minnesota with my husband, 4 kids and 3 dogs.

My youngest daughter, Samantha, is the inspiration behind my product line. Sam has multiple disabilities including brain malformations and autism. She's nonverbal and although she's adorable, some days can be challenging. I've been sewing for a long time, making a variety of things, but mostly dolls. I've wanted to create items to help individuals with special needs for quite some time, and then the idea of weighted blankets came along. I made one for Sam to help with calming, and knew I wanted to make them for others who could benefit. I'm making it a priority to keep them affordable and to sew them to order so that they're perfectly suited for the recipient!

I also have another shop on Etsy: www.gonetopiecesecowear.com

When I'm not sewing or running I enjoy coffee and pinterest. :) http://pinterest.com/sugrnspicelife/

*"Weight For It" weighted blankets, scarves and lap pads are made with super soft minky on one side and cotton on the other side. They're filled with glass pellets with the weight distributed evenly throughout in 4 x 4" squares. Since they are meant to be a comfort, I'm happy to find a fabric for your blanket that will be perfectly suited to you....any color, pattern, theme, character, or interest. If you want it, I'll do my best to find it! :)

*Benefits of weighted blankets, scarves and lap pads:
Weighted products are a beneficial therapy tool for children and adults with sensory processing disorders, autism, ADHD, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, stress, PTSD, chronic pain, sleep disorders, dementia, and many more conditions.
Weighted blankets mimic deep pressure touch stimulation, causing serotonin to be released, thus have a calming and soothing effect.
Lap pads and Scarves are smaller and more portable and can be beneficial in helping with calming and concentration in situations like school, appointments, restaurants, church, and in the car.

*Weight Recommendations:
The recommended weight for a blanket is 10% of your child's body weight + 1-2 lbs. Adult recommendations are 5-10% of ideal body weight. For lap pads and scarves the recommendation is 5% of body weight. They are not intended for children under 3 years of age or individuals who are not in good physical health. If you have any questions or concerns please consult your physician or occupational therapist.

*Care of your weighted product:
Wash in cold water on a gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low heat or lay flat to dry.
