Please see the weight guide to determine the correct weight. It is recommended that the weighted blanket should not exceed 10% of the users bodyweight.

Weighted blankets can help:

Weighted products should be used under the supervision of a suitably qualified person at all times. We recommend that you consult with your Occupational Therapist or other healthcare professional prior to using a weighted blanket or other weighted product.
WARNING - some weighted blankets advertised as "fire retardant" are treated with a fireproofing spray. This spray can be noxious and leaves an unpleasant sticky film on the blanket. Not only that, as soon as you wash or wipe the blanket, the spray is washed off and becomes ineffective. The Sensory Direct blankets are made from a material which is inherently fire retardant and have been independently tested.
