About Weighted Blankets
It is recommended that weighted blanket is between 10% and 12% of your body weight. However, some of our customers prefer slightly heavier or weighted blankets.
The weighted of weighted blankets come from its filling. Micro-glass beads, plastic pellets and dried grains and beans are some of the most common fillers for weighted blankets. At Wrapped, our weighted blankets are filled with micro-glass beads – while the glass beads are usually more expensive, they are heavier and more durable than other fillings. Meaning the blanket with glass-beads last longer and are less bulky.
Weighted blankets work using a physical therapy technique called Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS). The constant, gentle pressure from the weighted blanket scan increase the release of hormones such as serotonin in the brain. In turn, this neurotransmitter creates a sense of calm and well-being helping people to improve sleep quality and reduce stress.
Weighted blankets can help provide users with a sense of calm and well-being. This in turn can them improve sleep quality and mood, while reducing stress and signs of anxiety. Benefits of weighted blanket have been seen by those living with autism, ADHD, anxiety, insomnia, and even chronic pain.
Weighted blankets are usually no warmer than a normal blanket. However, choosing the right blanket cover can help too. We recommend our soft minky cover for cold sleepers and 100% cotton cover for those who usually feel warmer at night.
Weighted blankets can be quite difficult to wash. Due to their weight they should not be put in a washing machine – instead washed by hand. Since weighted blankets can be so difficult to wash, we recommend always using a machine washable blanket cover.
Technically yes – however it’s not recommended. Weighted blankets are designed to be used by one person and by sharing the blanket you may not get the same results if any at all.
Yes, weighted blankets are safe – as long as you follow the usage instructions. For example, making sure the blanket is not too heavy and the blanket cover is properly fixed to the blanket.
