What is a weighted blanket? A weighted blanket is sometimes also called a gravity blanket. It is a heavy blanket, often from 5 – 15 pounds or more of weight. The blanket contains a special material inside, often something like plastic pellets, that are evenly distributed to create extra weight. Children need a much lighter weighted blanket than adults.

Who should use a weighted blanket? Anyone can technically use a weighted blanket, but they are designed for people with sensory issues. Weighted blankets can help calm people with sensory issues, like sensory processing disorder, autism, ADHD and more. They can relieve stress and help provide relaxation.
