Weighted Blankets & Calming Blankets
Weighted blankets provide soothing deep pressure for a uniquely calming experience. Kids and adults can settle down and relax with a weighted blanket after a long day. The proprioception can be especially beneficial for those with sensory processing disorders, anxiety, autism or sleep disorders. Weighted blankets can help improve sleep, reduce anxiety, improve sensory processing, boost attention and improve body awareness. A primary consideration when choosing a weighted blanket is its weight. Our safety guidelines describe how to safely choose and use a weighted blanket. Weighted blankets come in different sizes and styles so that you can select one that meets your needs and preferences. Some have a more playful design and others have a more sophisticated look. Slipcovers can be added to a weighted blanket for extra tactile appeal. Sensory blankets can also be used when kids or adults are seated. They can be taken along on long car rides for use as a lap pad, or draped around the shoulders while reading in school. Most blankets are machine washable for easy maintenance.
