About Me

My name is Sam and as a qualified Social Worker with over ten years experience in healthcare settings, I have gained good insight into poor mental health and the effects of this upon the community.

 

As research indicates, there are many therapeutic benefits that weighted blankets provide for both adults and children (see About section for further information) and this is what motivated me to draw upon my personal and professional skills, in particular my love of sewing and crafts in order to bring you weighted blankets.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are the blankets made?

The fabric is cut to size in four layers; these layers are then sewn together using enforced stitching.  The pockets are measured and marked evenly (5” or 6” squares depending on the size of the blanket), which are then filled with evenly weighted poly pellets.  The double lined blanket is triple stitched to finish in order to prevent stretching, reinforce the finished edges and overall promote longevity.

What materials are used?

  • Four layers of 100% top quality quilting cotton (more sturdy than other cotton fabrics)

  • 100% non toxic/flamable natural glass beads.  Glass beads are about the same size (about 2.5mm thick) as plastic poly pellets however they’re much denser than the plastic poly pellets which allows for a lot less glass to achieve the same weight (blankets are lower profile). Glass beads have a much smoother and finer texture than plastic poly pellets and are far more resistant to “clumping” of the blanket compared to plastic poly pellets.

I am happy to accommodate requests for alternative fabric types, just contact me to discuss!

Can I wash my weighted blanket?

Yes you are able to wash your weighted blanket.  The blankets are machine washable on a gentle cold water cycle; The blanket can be dried in a dryer or line dried with the blanket laid flat as possible  as they can become significantly heavy when wet.  I recommend that you wash larger blankets (6kg plus) in a commercial washer/dryer due to the size and weight of the blanket. 

How long will my order take?

I endeavour to reply to messages within the hour to organise and finalise your order.  Once your order has been placed and payment made, I may be able to have your item ready to collect/dispatch within two days however depending on current orders in progress please allow one working week for completion/dispatch of your item.
