Our Weighted "Dream" Blankets are just that: a dream come true!
100% cotton fleece fabric, sourced from the USA, is used to make the blankets. They are designed with individual channels with removable weighted sleeves, offering a uniquely adjustable blanket. All sleeves secure into the blanket with snaps.
Weighted "Dream" blankets are 42" wide so that the weight is over your body (where it is needed) and not covering your bed.
Both the blanket and sleeves are machine washable.
This blanket has six channels with 9 one-pound sleeves for a total weight of 12.25 pounds.
It is possible to purchase additional sleeves with two pounds to increase the weight.
Check out our antimicrobial/waterproof option: weighted sleeves are made with wipeable, waterproof, machine washable nylon.
If used in X-rays and MRIs, plastic snaps can replace metal snaps.
WHY WE USE POLY BEADS?
The Poly Beads are virgin and Made in America. The beads can be washed.
I am a full believer in taking care of the environment with 5 grandchildren who need to have a safe world to grow in! Using glass beads would be my preference.
Why I chose poly beads is due to hearing that the beads can sift through the fabric resulting in feeling what is described as beach sand. I am always searching for a more environmentally friendly weight that can be washed. Keep posted!
