Sleeplessness and anxiety are growing issues in the life of the average person. Weighting Comforts seeks to be a solution in the lives of these people. As a therapist, Donna noticed that her clients were calmer and felt more grounded when using a Weighting Comforts weighted blanket. Not only are weighted blankets commonly used in the autism community, they also provide comfort to the average person in a time of stress, depression or anxiety.
We partner with Sew For Hope, empowering international refugees to sew your blanket.
Sew For Hope is a non-profit organization that provides sewing machines and sewing classes for international refugees that have been resettled in Middle Tennessee. Weighting Comforts is thrilled that their product is providing the opportunity for these refugees to make a living with artistry and skill.
Remember going to the dentist and having a lead apron placed on you during X-Rays? Remember the relaxing feeling you experienced? This is the same experience our weighted blankets provide. Weighted blankets benefit users just like a deep tissue massage. This pressure aids in releasing serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a hormone in our bodies that gives us a sense of well being. Some of that serotonin becomes melatonin which helps us relax and go to sleep. Simply put, weighted blankets are calming, cozy and comforting. At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than snuggling under the weight of a Weighting Comforts weighted blanket.
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||140 - 170 lbs||180 - 200 lbs||220 + lbs|
|10 lb||15 lb||20 lb||N / A|
|Flannel||10 lb||15 lb||20 lb||N / A|
|CoolMax®||15 lb||15 lb||20 lb||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.
