Weighted blankets provide sensory input for people with autism and other disorders.

Hello, my name is Heather Linn. I made my first weighted blanket in 2002 when my daughter’s therapist suggested it might help her sleep. I never considered myself as capable of sewing anything, but I couldn’t afford to buy one, so I learned. At the request of that same wonderful therapist, I made some for other people and I’ve been making them on and off for almost 15 years. Weighted blankets to me was never a business, but a way to help people.

Fabric

  • You may provide your own fabric and thread or let me know your preferences and I can choose it for you.
  • Please choose from fleece, cotton, or flannel. NO minky.
  • Purchase all purpose thread, NOT surger thread.

Poly Beads

These beads are perfect for stuffing blankets

The suggested weight is generally 10% a person’s weight. For children 10% plus a pound or two. Some people will prefer more, some people will prefer less. Blanket size should also be considered as well. 5 lbs in a toddler bed size blanket has a lot more pressure than 5 lbs distributed in a twin size blanket. Talk to your therapist or feel free to ask me any questions.

  • # of pounds desired x $3.50 = cost of beads
