A weighted blanket should be filled with non-toxic pellets, at a calculation of 10% of your body weight. You will add 1lb if you are shopping for someone who is still growing.
Weighted blankets are not appropriate for children 2 and under or who cannot safely lift the blanket off of them. Maximum fill limits are between 25 to 30 lbs.
A weighted blanket should be large enough to comfortably cover you as you turn in bed during the night.
Bigger is not better! Since the weight is evenly distributed in the blanket, if 25% of the blanket is on the bed and not you, you are only feeling 75% of the required weight. Weighted Therapy
A weighted blanket should be able to be cleaned.
As with all bed linens, weighted blankets should be able to be washed or include a duvet cover that is washable to maintain proper hygiene. Weighted Therapy
A weighted blanket should appeal to your senses.
Consider both the look and feel of fabric before making selections. Consider whether you or a loved one would benefit from added aromatherapy. If you are buying for a child, you will want for them to love and use the blanket, so make sure it appeals to all of their senses! Weighted Therapy
Do Weighted Products Work?
Therapists have encouraged the use of weighted blankets for many years now for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorders, Stress, and many more. But why? The answer is simple. They work
Remember how your body relaxed after your last message or maybe a great hug? The short description of what was happening then and when someone uses a weighted blanket is a follows:
By adding therapeutic, distributed weight, we gain the benefits of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP), causing our bodies to release neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, that help to regulate mood and produce a calming effect. Further, in a darkened environment our bodies are able to convert that serotonin into melatonin for a deeper and more restful sleep.
The Source of the Weight
The “weight” in our products is derived from 100% U.S. made Polypropylene pellets.
Polypropylene is widely used commercially in applications like milk and yogurt containers, personal care products and toys.
In order to remain chemically stable, should contact be made with the pellets, it is not recommended that they be heated (washed on warm cycle or microwaved) or chilled.
Ingestion of pellets may represent a very low choking hazard, but no toxicity hazard.

Raising Money For Krause Children’s Center
Krause Children’s Center in Katy, TX becomes a temporary home to nearly 300 girls who have been subject to terrible acts of abuse and neglect each year.
Wyatt’s Weighted Wonderland has partnered with this great organization to help raise funds to provide new weighted blankets to each young lady who becomes a Krause Children’s Center resident this year. These blankets will be used as part of their intensive rehabilitation therapy and become a special parting gift when they say goodbye in 6 to 8 months.
