    Frequently Asked Questions about Weighted Blankets

    How Heavy Should My Weighted Blanket Be?

    The rule of thumb for a weighted blanket is to be 10% of your body weight, plus a pound or two. So for a 60-pound child, our 7-pound blanket would work best. Click here to see our heavier blanket options.

    What is the Science Behind Weighted Blankets?

    The science behind weighted blankets is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here

    DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted blankets and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here

    Who Do Weighted Blankets Work for?

    Life Saver !!

    I purchased the blanket for my 2 year old daughter. She has sensory problems and trouble falling asleep and staying asleep at night. Since getting the blanket she is falling asleep faster and staying asleep all night. I have a newborn baby and between him and my 2 year old i wasn’t getting any sleep at night. But now that she is able to sleep all night because of this blanket. It was the best decision ever !!!!

    10lb weighted blanket

    We love our weighted blanket! The fabric is amazing and we love how it is machine washable and easy to assemble. We also love how great Harkla is as a company. They are very prompt with their responses and extremely supportive to the special needs community in general.

    My daughter loves it!

    We purchased the weighted blanket in purple for our daughter, who has Autism. The cover is beautiful and soft. The process of putting the blanket together was a bit tedious, as you have to tie knots around the weighted areas of the inside blanket. As someone inexperienced with single lace knots, I'm glad that I had a partner to explain it. Once that part was complete, the blanket was ready to be used. Our daughter immediately wanted to cover up and snuggle with this beautiful blanket. She was smiling from ear to ear. We actually enjoyed hers so much that we purchased an adult size weighted blanket from Harkla as well!

    Glad I purchased this!

    My son has ADHD and was hav difficulty sleeping in his bed for about 3 or 4 years off and on. I read about the weight blanket and thought I’d give it a try and SO glad I did! He has slept so calmly . And some times comes home from school and lays down to take a break after school. Great purchase!


    I'm very pleased with delivery in packaging all of that was very good. The weight is a little too...? I would rather that the baffles were smaller.
