Two weeks ago Weighting Comforts' Co-founder/CEO, Josh Durham, was among the many who ventured into the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Vidor, Texas to volunteer with hurricane relief.
"You wouldn't believe the things we saw," said Durham. "I shoveled wet clothes from a 16-year-old boy's bedroom. I carried soaking wet carpet, old wedding photos, and saw strangers helping strangers."
 
Durham worked alongside volunteers from a local church, Turning Point, which has continued to help feed people, renovate homes, organize and distribute supplies to the areas that were hit hard.
 
Turning Point Church will be bringing in a team of counselors to help people work through the trauma of losing their homes. Weighting Comforts is shipping weighted blankets to aide the counselors as they comfort people who have lost everything.
 
"Pastor George and his team are doing a really good job of taking care of the people down there and they still need lots of help," said Durham.

What Blanket Weight Should I Buy?

A general rule when purchasing a weighted blanket is taking your weight and multiplying it by .10, or taking 10% of your body weight. Using that number, follow the chart below to guide you in finding the perfect blanket!

100 - 130 lbs
Quilted Cotton 10 lb
Flannel 10 lb
CoolMax® 15 lb
140 - 170 lbs
Quilted Cotton 15 lb
Flannel 15 lb
CoolMax® 15 lb
180 - 200 lbs
Quilted Cotton 20 lb
Flannel 20 lb
CoolMax® 20 lb
220 + lbs
Quilted Cotton N / A
Flannel N / A
CoolMax® 25 lb

 

Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.

Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
