Raised with quilts and quiltmaking, we have a strong belief in comfort and quality. We owned and operated a retail quilt shop for 10 years. It was a lot of fun and we miss it dearly, but because of health issues, a change had to be made. Now, we can work from home. We discovered a need for WEIGHTED BLANKETS and love making them and helping people with their health issues at the same time. We have many happy customers and we have shared some testimonials on this website.
A weighted blanket can help soothe a person like a big hug. Several studies show many, many health benefits and the ones that interested us were Mary-Ann’s improved sleep, and Mark’s relief from his restless legs.
Our weighted blankets are made of 100% cotton. They are filled with 100% polypropylene stuffing beads. The stuffing beads are non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and machine-washable. Weighted blankets are made to fit the body and not the bed, like a quilt or bedspread. A general guideline for the weight used in a blanket is 10% of a person’s body weight.
