Announcement    It still feels like its too early to be mentioning it...but Christmas is just around the corner!

If you would like a Blonde Bear Blanket under your tree this year please be sure to order in plenty of time - especially if you are outside of the UK as delivery will take a little longer.

Blankets take up to 2 weeks to be made and I would hate to disappoint anyone. Remember, I am also more than happy to find other fabrics if none in my shop catch your eye - just send me a wee message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Video summary: A little video showing me making a blanket from start to finish (its a very shortened version, dont worry :) )

All about me....

My name is Claire and I am the founder of Blonde Bear Blankets. I am a mother of two beautiful boys - the eldest has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the youngest is just starting the assessment process. Being a bit of an obsessive mum, I have googled, read and researched everything possible to try and make his life a bit easier (including an ill-advised puppy to try and help – it didn’t!), when I came across weighted blankets.

I thought they sounded like they would be an excellent help, especially with sleep and sensory issues that cause restlessness, however the price and patterns were very off putting. For the smallest blankets the cost was over £100 and the patterns very limited – I don’t think my 12 year old son would enjoy a jigsaw puzzle blanket – as lovely as they are.

I was at this point I decided to create my own blanket for him, using a Pokemon pattern that he’s absolutely obsessed with. As I made my blanket, I realised that other parents with children and young people with ASD and other conditions were in the same position as me; either it was too expensive to buy or their child wouldn’t like the blanket because of the pattern.

It was then I decided to start Blonde Bear Blankets, to provide people with a variety of blankets and patterns while keeping the costs as low as possible. I have found them to be a huge help (so much so, I have started using one myself) and I hope that you also find them to be an affordable, worthwhile investment for you and your child.

Custom and personalised orders

If nothing in the store catches your eye, please send me a wee message - I am more than happy to find the perfect fabric for you.

Sizing details

Each of the listings have the sizing listed on them, however if you would like a different size to the ones that are listed please let me know. The majority can be adjusted to your individual needs.

Care instructions

All blankets, lap pads and snakes can be machined washed at 30degrees and tumble dried on the lowest setting.

I always advise individuals who are buying heavier blankets to check the weight their machine can hold.

Gift wrapping and packaging

The blankets are wrapped and securely packaged - the packaging has a Blonde Bear Blanket logo on it. If you are buying as a gift and need plain packaging just let me know.

Weight of blanket

For a childs blanket it is advised that it should be 10% (+1/2lbs) of the childs overall body weight.

For an adult it should be 10% of their IDEAL body weight. This is the suggested way to calculate an adults, but if you feel like you would prefer it to be heavier or lighter, its personal preference.
