Got A Question About Weighted Blankets?
We've Got The Answer
Your weighted blanket should be approximately 10% of your body weight. For example if your child weighs 20kg we would recommend the 2kg weighted blanket. You can also refer to our weight chart here.
If 10% of your child’s body weight doesn’t fit squarely into one of those categories, most experts recommend the lighter weight as too much pressure may be uncomfortable.
The 1.5 & 2kg blankets measure 90 x 120cm which is not quite the full length of a single bed. However, the blanket can be used on its own or over a duvet depending on your child’s preference. The next size up is a single bed size at 100 x 150cm but is heavier at 3kg.
The blankets can be used on top of the duvet, underneath the duvet or by themselves without a duvet at all.

However, every child has unique sensory needs and weighted blankets will not work for every child. If your child is very sensitive to being touched or reacts to different textures and dislikes sleeping under blankets, a weighted blanket may not be for them.
We have used non slip telescopic ties to secure the cover to the inner weighted blanket so the weight is always evenly distributed. All of our blankets and covers are made using 100% organic soft cotton to ensure it feels lovely against your child’s skin. All our blankets also come with a reusable cotton storage bag. Each weighted blanket is made using 7-layers of pure cotton with non-toxic glass micro beads sewn into each pocket to evenly distribute your chosen weight. Our manufacturers have used SGS certified, anti-noise weighted glass micro beads which mould to your shape whilst you are resting. Each bead allows air in and out to maintain a perfect temperature. All our products are Oeko-Tex certified so you can rest assure that no toxic materials or chemicals have been used to create any of The Little Blanket Shop range. We offer our children’s blankets in small weight increments of 1.5kg, 2kg and 3kg
You can use a weighted blanket at night or when you are relaxing during the day. It helps to introduce the blanket slowly into your child’s routine. For example, start by using the blanket for short periods during story time, whilst doing homework, watching a film or when relaxing. When you do introduce the blanket into your bedtime routine pull the blanket up slowly from their feet. This really can feel like a hug.
All blankets come a cover which can be easily removed for washing. Machine wash with cold water and avoid soaking or bleaching the cover. We do not recommend tumble drying, dry cleaning or ironing our blankets. If you decide the weighted inner blanket does need washing this can be done by using a cold setting on your washing machine. Please check the weight of the blanket does not exceed the recommended weight of your machine. Once washed shake and hang your blanket to dry.
