How do I decide what the correct weight to use is?
We have many Weighted Blankets in stock that are a fairly standard weight. By standard weight we put aproximatley 40 grams or more pollypellets in each pocket. Depending on the size of the blanket to the ultimate weight. But this is shown on the pricing page. Occupational Therapists ususally recomend 10% plus 500 grams of the body weight.
What if I want my blanket heavier?
No problem, we can make your blanket to your requested weight, it would be wise to check with your Occupational Therapist for the right weight. We do charge $5.00 per half kilo over the standard weighted blankets.
What size blanket is the right size?
Single blankets are usually 40” x 70” and will fit a child 4-6 yrs old up to an average size adult. Large lap blankets are 40” x 40” and work both as a small blanket for bed or for the lap, great for travelling. Small lap blankets are 22” x 22” ideal for children to help with sitting and concentrating.
What is used inside of the blankets?
For weight, we use poly pellets . They are hypo-allergenic and non-toxic. Frequently used in children's toys, they are a safe product, which is sewn into four layers of fabric to avoid any leakage and keep the blanket evenly weighted.
What type of material do you use?
We prefer to use 100% cotton fabrics, but we are happy to make cotton or all flannel on request. Each Blanket has 4 layers of material, so we choose light materials as we do not want the blanket to be hot, the point of the blanket is weight, not warmth.
What shipping service do you use?
Currently we use Australia post, and Fastways couriers, we choose which option is cheapest for you.
How do you wash your blankets and wraps?
Machine wash separately on gentle cycle in warm or cold water. Although the blankets can be tumble dried on low, we feel the wear and tear on your dryer may suffer due to the weight and recommend line dry. If your blanket has bright colours that might run, wash the first time in cold water with 1 cup of salt to set the colours. For flannel, use fabric softener or 1 cup white vinegar in the rinse water to soften flannel and help remove pilling.
We currently accept Credit Cards, (VISA and Mastercard), Pay Pal, bank deposit, cash, business checks and money order our bank details will be supplied to you via invoice when your blanket is completed.
