Frequently Asked Questions
We actually have an entire page dedicated to using and washing your weighted blanket here.
When you choose a blanket on our site, you will be shown the suggested weight for you.

Small weighted blankets are appropriate for babies and toddlers up to 6yrs of age and are sized approx. 34″ x 50″. Medium weighted blankets are approx. 38″ x 62″ and will fit a child 6-12 yrs old up to an average size adult. Large weighted blankets are perfect for taller teens and adults and are approx. 38″ x 72″.
Remember that weighted blankets are made to fit the BODY and not the BED.
You should only consider a full, queen or king if you are very large, toss and turn a LOT, or are a couple that want to share the blanket.
There is also the consideration that lots of kids and adults like to carry their blanket around and use it on the couch, in the car, etc for calming and this is much easier if it is easy to carry.
Please look at the sizing page for more important information.
SensaCalm is pleased to announce that we’ve switched from virgin poly pellets to more environmentally-friendly glass beads in our weighted blankets and other weighted products. For years we worked with the same polypropylene pellets used to stuff small bean bags and many types of plush toys to create the weight in our blankets. While these pellets are high quality and actually recyclable, we wanted to switch to something even more eco-friendly and efficient yet that would still enable our customers to wash and dry their blankets at home.
“We’ve been wanting to switch from plastic to glass for a while,” explains SensaCalm’s founder Donna Chambers. “But we were adamant about finding a supplier who made the beads in the US in alignment with our commitment to safety, quality control and encouraging domestic job growth.” Chambers continues, “Our new glass beads also have the added benefit of being quieter, which is helpful to those that have noise sensitivity”
Why do we feel glass is a greener option when it comes to adding weight? In a recent report from Britsh Glass, environment minister, Thérèse Coffey said that unlike plastic microbeads, glass powder “can be created from recycled glass – avoiding use of precious virgin raw materials, and the energy consumption of extracting and processing them.” Coffey added, “And as glass itself is around 75% silica sand, if it ends up in wastewater system and eventually the sea it acts just as sand would.”
How else is our new material superior to polypropylene? The glass is heavier per square inch than poly pellets, so less raw material is required to attain the same weight.
Our weights are not removable, the glass beads and poly fill are sewn into each individual square making the weight evenly distributed.
When you choose to order with snaps it is because you are ordering a duvet cover and it will need to snap on.
The Snaps are placed on the Border/Trim of the blanket, and are not uncomfortable if you choose to use your blanket without the Duvet Cover.
