One of the greatest things about being friends with people different than ourselves is gaining valued perspective. For seven years I was in a Bible study in Orange City, Iowa. We did not all agree on gender roles, parenting, or a host of political topics. Besides providing great friendships for me, this group actually helped me feel safer in the world and helped me develop the ability to see other views. I credit this group with opening my eyes to the plight of the immigrant and enhancing my worldview. I credit those changes with molding me to become the person that has grown Weighting Comforts by employing refugees.
A wonderful experience I have had since starting Weighting Comforts is getting to know people from different cultures. Anwar is our lead sewer and trainer. She is Muslim and I am Christian. Before I knew Anwar I could not have imagined having a spiritual connection with someone who is not a Christian. But several times in this journey Anwar has had a “knowing” about something I have been thinking about.
If you're new to weighted blankets, we recommend that you choose the lightest weight available of the style you prefer. If after looking at this size chart you find yourself between two weights, we recommend you choose the lighter of the two.
