Handmade Weighted Blankets

These practical and fun weighted blankets have been a popular new addition to my range of handmade items.  Since we know that proprioceptive, deep touch pressure helps to release serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate some brain functions, weighted blankets are used to help with sensory modulation and regulation. The deep pressure touch stimulation, or swaddling that happens when you cuddle up with a weighted blanket helps you calm down, relax to feel better, and eases your mind, allowing for complete relaxation. These blankets are used as an aid to relieve symptoms of stress, anxiety, RSL, insomnia, ADHD and autism. 

 

 

The example below measures approximately 107cm x 125cm with lots of individually sewn pockets which are filled with washable weighting pellets and wadding. The blankets I make are 100% cotton and can be made in a fabric design of your choice.

Here is a 'Superhero' themed blanket. 

A testamonial from a very pleased mummy:

"This blanket is amazing, thank you so much - it has brought him comfort.  He literally can't ever root himself or calm he has to move always. He has just sat and eaten his lunch and now is looking for a film - totally unheard of Thank You so much x"
