Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's the Gently Used Sale?

       A: Please read all about our special gently used blankets HERE.

Q: Can the blankets be washed and dried? 

A: Yes, the blankets are machine washable on cold or warm, tumble dry low. We recommend adding a few towels to even out the weight.


Q: What are the blankets filled with?

A: The  pellets used in our blankets are made from a PVC compound produced using FDA-approved, non-hazardous materials.  The product, if in contact with skin, is non-irritating and no effect is expected if ingested by humans and animals. This product burns when exposed to temperatures greater than 600°F. 

 

Q: What are the colored lines on my blanket?

 A: The card enclosed with your blanket explains that these chalk or water-soluble marker lines are used during the production of each blanket and will wash out after one or two washings. If you have further trouble, please let us know.

 

Q: Which weight is right for me?

A: The ideal blanket weight is generally 10% of your body weight. Choose the closest weight available in that range. If you are in between sizes, we recommend going down a size. Check our SIZE CHART for more info.

Q: How do they work?

A: Weighted blankets work like deep tissue massage. The pressure releases serotonin in the body and some of that serotonin becomes melatonin. Melatonin helps us relax and sleep. See our video here.

            Our blankets are designed with adults in mind. 

 

Q: Would the blankets help children with sensory processing issues?

Q: How warm are the blankets?

A: Our flannel blankets add warmth.

The quilting cotton blankets add little warmth.

The Cool Max blankets actively wick away body heat, adding no warmth.

 

Q: Are the blankets covered by insurance?
