My son loves his Spider-Man weighted blanket! This blanket is so much better than any other weighted blanket we’ve purchased due to quality, machine washable, choice in fabrics including minky on the back! My son has resisted weighted blankets in the past but immediately wanted to be snuggled into this one! Slept soundly! Thank you!
May 18, 2016
Huge shout out and thank you to sensa calm for having incredible customer service and helping me with our great blanket! They rock and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a custom weighted blanket.

Just got my first good night’s sleep without sweating under layers of blankets. Fantastic product! I love the fabric too. It’s so pretty. My next order is going to be a duvet cover since my dog is also smitten by my new blanket
April 1, 2016
Your customer service is excellent! My son and I love the blanket and lap pad sooo much! He takes the blanket EVERYWHERE in our apt! It’s his new favorite and I don’t think anyone can top it! Also when our order was a little delayed your customer service rep was very courteous and kind in notifying us ahead of time about the delay. We didn’t even mind the extra wait because your products are amazing! Thank you again!

I purchased a blanket from you recently – a 20# 38″X72″, sage green with latte beige minky fleece backing blanket. The first two nights – geez, this is HEAVY!!! It has been perhaps two weeks. I love it!! I really look forward to going to bed and crawling under my blanket. And I noticed something – I noticed because I got a Garmin activity tracker. It tracks sleep… What I noticed was that my sleep consists of approximately 60% deep sleep. That’s a lot. At least I think it is. Apparently the average for adults is 20%. I am also sleeping longer and waking up later – which is a good thing. Four – five hours of sleep per night has lengthened to seven – eight. And I must add – You did a beautiful job on the blanket. It looks very, very nice. I love the colors. And the minky fleece fabric. When I ordered the blanket I thought, what the heck is that??? So I figured that I would just find out. The color is actually lighter than the picture on your site, which I like. So overall – and in every way – I love the blanket. Thanks. (I am, by the way, a retirement-age adult with an autism spectrum disorder.)

The blanket and the wrap arrived and they’re both perfect! I love them and my son was so excited that he actually went to bed early! We have been using the wrap like crazy. My son loves anything That provides “heavy” (as he calls it) so the wrap has quickly become one of his favorite things.
Thank you again for your help with everything. I really do appreciate it!
I hope your new year is off to a great start!

I have fibromyalgia, arthritis and a very bad back injury….add menopause and forget sleep! I got myself a custom blanket for mother’s day (without the polyfill) and am THRILLED!!!! The quality of my sleep is improved by leaps and jumps. The blanket actually helps with the pain…don’t ask me how. Besides that, the quality of the blanket and it’s workmanship are unbeatable!! I also just ordered a blanket, fidgets, fidget mitt, and chewy tube for my son who is a toddler and has sensory processing issues. We haven’t used the blanket yet, however the toys are all a BIG HIT w/him already…we just opened the box. Re: the toddler blanket…I can report that it is WAY more BEAUTIFUL than I expected and again the quality and workmanship is top notch!! It’s in the washer now and we will be looking forward to trying it for nap and tonight in the hopes that it will help him sleep through the night. either way it is a BEAUTIFUL blanket!! HIGHLY recommend all products from this company.

Thank you! Thank you! Years of restless leg syndrome and insomnia. I purchased the small 7lb as a lap blanket to test it out, and use it at night. Two weeks of deep, solid sleep. Will be ordering a larger one shortly!

Sarah was great to work with. Found the special fabric in asked for, and my daughter loves her blanket!! Thank you!

I just received my own weighted blanket (literally 5 minutes ago UPS dropped it off) and I’m so excited! I’ve been borrowing my sister in law’s weighted blanket for the past 2 days and have used it on and off over the past year or so and I wish I could stay under it forever. I have cerebral palsy and sometimes I’m overstimulated. The weight is significantly helpful in calming down my muscle spasms and also calming me down overall. Thank you sensacalm

“I ordered a weighted blanket from SensaCalm after wanting one for years. As a person with schizophrenia and PTSD, sleep was fitful at best for years. With my weighted blanket I’m sleeping longer, and I’ve seen a significant reduction in my nightmares, down to one or two per week instead of one or two per night! I highly recommend SensaCalm products to anyone in a similar position and cannot say enough good things about this company and their customer service.”

I received my weighted blanket about 2 weeks ago and it is absolutely fantastic! The fabric and stitching are very high quality. I also really like having the stuffing in addition to the plastic pellets as it makes it a bit more cozy and comfortable. Customer service was excellent when I thought I had made an error after ordering. If you are considering buying a weighted blanket, I would definitely recommend making the purchase through SensaCalm.
I use mine both at night and occasionally during the day when I’m feeling stressed. Within just a few minutes I start to feel more relaxed and am less agitated and better able to calm myself. I have some physical health issues as well and the added weight is very comforting and soothing.
These blankets are expensive but they’re very high quality and would be beneficial for many people with or without a wide range of health issues. I love mine and have seen significant benefits after only two weeks. If you think a weighted blanket could help you but you are still undecided, I would definitely recommend giving it a try. They’re absolutely worth it!

I just received our first order! I orderEd a weighted blanket and a Miracle Belt for my son. The quality and comfort of the blanket is amazing!!! The Miracle Belt is just that. The belt helped enormously during the Christmas Eve church service tonight. The best thing is, my son loves both!! My next purchase will be a weighted vest. Thank you for making such great quality products!!!

Excellent! I love my weighted blanket! It was recommended to me by an Occupational Therapist after a car accident that has resulted in a mild TBI . The first night was a little hard to get to sleep – felt wonderful, but I guess I just needed to get used to it. Ever since, I am sleeping soundly – through the night without waking up! (Definite improvement for this peri-menopausal woman! My husband says I’m not tossing and turning all night – I’m now dreaming – which tells me I’m sleeping soundly! I’d recommend SensaCalm to anyone needing a purchase like this. The quality is very high, and they respond to questions within 24 hours.

We received the blankets today! Jack is already in love and I am not lying when I say that he was instantly calmed and felt a huge sense of relief once I put it on him. He told me that he felt that this weighted sensation was something he had been looking for and felt like he was missing forever. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for all the time and effort you put into making my Jack the perfect blankets and wrap. He LOVES the fabric too, he could not believe you found the blue dog. The orange silky soft back is so perfect for him.
Thank you! thank you!

Huge thank you to sensacalm for making my sons new turtle blanket. He was so happy and excited it came today. We had requested the back to be purple since it’s his favorite color and we weren’t sure it would come since we added it in the comment bar. Clearly you all went above and beyond to make this little guy happy. He said “they did my favorite color too!!!” So thank you very much for this awesome blanket!
July 30, 2015
My daughter loves her blanket and will request it over others! She sleeps with it every night. It is beautiful, well made and holds up great in the washing machine and dryer. I’m so glad I found this company! We just ordered two wraps, one for school and one for her to use in the family room or car.

I bought my first weighted blanked from SensaCalm 3.5-4 years ago. I bought the adult size. I just recently had a little rip so sewed it up. I see others with weighted blankets and I still love hers. Also I had to buy an additional one since I was traveling and the CS rep helped me get a new one. So I have 2. My 10 year old (now) was 6.5/7 when I purchased and she still sleeps with it every night. These are excellent quality!!!!

My son is 13, has spastic quad CP. He has rarely had a good nights sleep. I have been debating getting a weighted blanket for many years, even thought about making one, but the task seemed overwhelmingly time consuming. Last week we received his 8 lb weighed blanket and I am AMAZED! He has slept soundly every night since we began using it! Thank you SensiCalm for the beautiful blanket, the excellent workmanship and for what you are doing to help those in need. Truly a great product.
PS Extra thanks to the employee who so meticulously sewed our blanket!

I have a son with Autism. He has a very hard time settling down for bed. His weighted blanket has been a godsend for calming his body down, not just at bedtime but at times he is very angry or over-stimulated. His blanket has held up really well. We’ve had his twin size one for a few years now and for the abuse it takes being drug & thrown around it is still in great shape. He has outgrown his current blanket and I just ordered him a full size one. I didn’t even look anywhere else since we are so happy with the first one we ordered from SensaCalm.
July 20, 2014
We bought a blanket from this amazing family business for our son. He was immediately able to settle in and sleep for the night. The blanket is very soft and the fabric custom to my son’s choosing. I love that we can upgrade to a larger blanket as he grows if we need! Love this family’s story and their interest to make an excellent quality product affordable.

We Just received are blanket that was ordered for are son with sensory issues. The color pattern he requested was a little strange so Elaine Essary sent us a email to confirm are choice. We told her yes if they could do it that way it would be perfect. We had borrowed a weighted blanket from his occupational therapist so we know it really works. Any time we had a question or concern about the blanket Elaine was quick to respond with are answers. With GREAT customer service like this SensaCalm has a new customer for life. Thank you again for all you did Elaine.

Thank you so much for this wonderful blanket! My 3-year-old son absolutely adores his blanket, and even brought it in to school for show and tell. Although he complained all the kids wanted to touch it, he was very proud of it!
We are working with a therapist and are very excited to try more of your products.The blanket is beautiful and very well-made. One teacher said, “I think this is the nicest blanket I’ve ever seen.”
Thank you very much,

I ordered a blanket from you for my daughter with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sleep has been a serious and debilitating problem for her. Using the blanket, she sleeps much better and wakes with significantly less pain. While on vacation, she kept the blanket in the car and we took it into the motel every night. Thank you for making a beneficial product. Also, your customer service was very professional and timely. I hope to do business as we need more and have recommended you to our friends.

We have had our weighted blanket for about four years now. I can without a doubt attest to the quality of these blankets. Our blanket has survived three little boys, and EVERYTHING a little boy can possibly do to a blanket. We wash it frequently, and it honestly still looks new.
If you love someone that needs the calming effects of a weighted blanket, you can be sure you are getting a great, durable product from Affordable Weighted Blankets!!

Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product. I have a 16 month old little boy who has had a difficult time sleeping at night and during the day. I thought that I have tried everything. I purchased one of your weighted blankets and my son has slept throughout the night since I bought the blanket. I can never thank you enough!
God bless you!

For 2-1/2 years I have been praying, along with family and friends, for peaceful sleep for my precious grandson, Matthew. I have also been praying for my daughter – a working mother trying to cope with a 4 year old as well as a 2-1/2 year old who was up many times during the night. I was truly worried that she would have a nervous breakdown.
God has heard my prayer and answered through you, Donna, and your weighted blanket. Matthew is sleeping through the night and is even more manageable during the day since sleeping under your blanket. You have a ministry! I was so touched to learn that you prayed for Matthew while making the blanket. I am a Christian and believe in the power of prayer, believe that prayer changes things, but was becoming very discouraged. I know God led my daughter to your website. May God bless you for the gift you are giving children and their families.
Your sister in Christ,

Thank you so much for all your help with the blanket!! It and the lap pad are so cute and comfy, he actually hauled it all the way downstairs the other morning to watch cartoons. He has really taken to it, and bedtime is less restless and he seems to be really resting while in the past he would seem to wake up tired… I think I researched every blanket out there and couldn’t be happier with the choice we made. Function is the priority, but the personalization, comfort, value, and care made this blanket priceless.
Thanks so much,

I work with children and adolescents on an acute mental health unit. Many kids have found success using these weighted blankets to assist with anxiety, to assist with settling to sleep and to assist with staying asleep. Affordable Weighted Blankets has become our vendor of choice for weighted modalities.
May 1, 2009
Thank you so much. The blanket is so pretty and so well made. We opened the box and she said PRETTY MINE!!! The first time it was used, it was nap time and she slept for a unheard of 3 hours.
Thank you so much!!!

Wonderful heartfelt staff. GREAT BUSINESS! I couldn’t make weighted items as well as they do, great affordable prices, and the friendliest people ever. ♥ exactly what a business should be.

After looking at multiple vendors for a weighted blanket, I found that SensaCalm offered the best fabric, weight and size options, as well as having very competitive pricing for a product that is 100% custom! I received my blanket today, and the craftsmanship is excellent, superb quality. Very excited to experience the impact this will have on my quality of sleep. It’s also definitely worth mentioning their exemplary customer service. It’s rare to find a company with an owner and employees who treat customers with compassion and humanity. Thank you Donna Chambers and Elaine Moore-Essary! I will be recommending SensaCalm to anyone who could benefit from a weighted blanket.

Really awesome blanket!!! It is made really well, and I love the colors that we were able to chose. My daughter loves her weighted blanket!!!

We just received our blanket in the mail for my soon to be 4 year old daughter. She loves it! She quickly covered up with it on the couch.

This is our 2nd weighted blanket, and I am so pleased. They not only are fantastic blankets , but the customer service is beyond superb. Elaine thank you for helping make my son’s wish of having a dinosaur blanket come true.

I was impressed on the timely fashion it got to us and the quality of the blanket is so much better than the other one he out grew that made made by a different company. Won’t be going anywhere else now!!

We love our weighted blanket. It was well worth the money. It is quality craftsmanship. My son loves the pattern. It washes well and the size is perfect with extra room for growth.

My sons’ blanket arrived yesterday and it is AWESOME!!! We used it right away, I couldn’t wait till Christmas. He slept so soundly and peacefully, which was heaven sent since he has been dealing with a cruddy cold for a few days. Thank you so much for the blanket. Now I can’t wait for his new bed to be made to show off his new blanket.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I received my weighed blanket yesterday. I ordered it for my son who is about to turn 2 and was recently diagnosed with autism. He slept the best he has ever slept last night. He normally is up4 or 5 times a night last night it was once and as soon as i put his blanky back over him he fell right back to sleep. I am very impressed with the quality and I love that it doesn’t look like a “medically needed” blanket like so many of the other weighted blankets out there. Thank you so much for your amazing product.

There are absolutely no words imaginable to describe the help you give.
Since my son received his blanket a week and a half ago, he gets up for about 1 min during the night and goes right back to sleep.
This has happened maybe 5 times in his 3 years of life. He is not autistic, and has no sensory problems that I know of. Just DOES NOT SLEEP.
He has done it (slept for more than 6 hours in a row) 6 nights in a row.
I am happier, have more energy, more patience, and am in awe of how a measly 114.00 can change someone’s life for the better…
If I could hug you I would.

I was cleaning out our den with my husband a couple weeks ago and I found the note you sent with the blanket we ordered for our son Gabe last thanksgiving. It said that you pray over each blanket that you send out and I wanted to thank you so much for both the blanket and your prayers.
Gabe has PDD NOS, he is 3, and does not sleep through the night. He is awake for long periods in the early AM hours. Since we gave him your weighted blanket, though, he has stayed in his room nearly every night, and not come out to try to play with us. I can honestly say my life has improved tremendously with the extra sleep…
Thank you again, sincerely, for your prayers and your service.
In Christ’s Love,

My family and I want to thank you for the beautiful blanket! Our wonderful son has agenesis of the corpus callosum. We were told by his OT that he had to stop being swaddled because it was affecting his ability to grab since his hands were always down at his sides. This was tricky, however, since he would not sleep without the swaddle. Aiden also tried to get out of the swaddle and would wake up constantly. We were desperate for help when our OT suggested a weighted blanket. We could not believe how long it would take. Then we found your site. I was not sure at first if it would help. We got the blanket in just two weeks and it was great. It was such wonderful material that Aiden can use it in the warm weather and light enough that he can still kick it off and put it in his mouth. Best of all, aiden is sleeping for six hours at a time now. He wakes up only once for a bottle. Even with the swaddle he never slept this well. He used to be up at least three times a night and be such a cranky baby and I was a cranky mommy.
Your blanket was a life saver and helped us help our five month old reach his full potential. Not only is he grabbing everything but he has begun to roll from back to front which I was worried he would never do! I can not thank you enough. I am a teacher and never thought to use a weighted blanket before the OT mentioned it. Any baby would benefit from them, not just children with special needs. Thank you again. You helped us get control of what could have turned into a severe problem. You have no idea how you have changed our lives!

I just wanted to let you know that you make a wonderful product!
My daughter loves her blanket and I love the craftsmanship as well. I passed along your cards to my daughter’s therapist and took the blanket with us so she could see how well it was made. She asked that we give her your information because she has had other clients order from websites and they were disappointed.
Good luck in business and thank you,
Cathy in IL
