Weighted blankets are making a real difference in the way people sleep and providing real comfort during times of stress. People often ask how to choose the right blanket. It’s important to realize weighted blankets are personal-use blankets, which means choosing the right blanket is all about YOUR personal preferences. We have put together some steps to help you choose your just-right blanket!
The first guideline for choosing a blanket is to start with about 10% of your weight. If you fall between one of our weights we encourage people to start with the lighter of the weights.
Additionally, what kind of pressure do you like? You may not know right off the bat. So ask yourself, do you like a deep massage? Or do you prefer light touch? If you like deep touch massage you are more likely to enjoy a heavier blanket. See the size chart here.
One of the most frequently asked questions is “Will this blanket make me hot?” Weighting Comforts offers three types of fabric to provide our customers with the optimal level of comfort, whether cool, warm, or neutral. We do not add any poly-fill inside the blankets, only weighted beads.
If you tend to get hot at night or suffer from night sweats due to menopause, then the COOLMaxⓇ blanket is definitely for you. CoolMax fabric is engineered to wick away moisture (and therefore body heat), which keeps the sleeper from getting too hot at night. The CoolMax is a little wider than our other blankets, at 76” long and 55” in wide. We sell this blanket in 15, 20 and 25-pound weights, and in white and light grey.
Some people are just always cold. We offer the charcoal flannel blanket for anyone wanting some extra warmth along with the weight. Our flannel fabric is very cozy and will help keep you warm throughout the year.
Our quilting fabric blankets are 100% quality cotton. They are neither too hot nor too cold, adding only the comforting weight that allows the body to rest. Quilting fabric is offered in 3 soothing colors: pewter, aqua spray, and blue chambray.
In the time we’ve been making weighting blankets, several other weighted blanket companies have entered the market. How are we different? Great Question!
