Spot-clean only. To remove spills, stains, or dirt, apply baking soda or a mild fabric cleaner and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Is 15 lb the right weight for me?
For optimal comfort, a weighted blanket should be somewhere around 10% of your body weight (more details).
Consult a physician before using a weighted blanket during pregnancy, or if you experience sleep-related disorders, respiratory problems, or other chronic medical conditions. This weighted blanket should not be used by children, or individuals who weigh less than 100 lb.
How does a weighted blanket work?
Weighted blankets are designed to create a calming effect when placed on the body. The high-density weighted granules are spread evenly across the blanket to simulate the therapeutic benefits of deep pressure therapy (DPT) — which is similar to the pleasant feeling of being hugged or held.
Scientific studies show that deep pressure therapy can help alleviate symptoms associated with autism, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.
