What size and weight should I choose?
Choose the blanket size that best fits the child/adult using the blanket:
Choose the weight based on your Occupational Therapist’s recommendation. If you do not have an Occupational Therapist, most recommend a blanket weight 10% of the person’s body weight plus 1 pound (ex. 50 pound child would use a 6 pound blanket). However, this is a guideline, not a rule. For safety reasons, the person using the blanket must be able to remove the blanket without assistance. Weighted products are not recommended for children under 3 years old.
Free shipping in the USA on all orders. We use USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. Express Mail is available for an extra charge.
International orders are welcome. International shipping is not free. We use USPS International Priority Mail exclusively for international purchases. International buyers are responsible for all import taxes/fees.
All orders ship within 2 weeks.
All products are 100% washer/dryer safe (as long as your machines can handle the weight) with the exception of the weighted stuffed animals.
Wash cold water. Dry warm heat with a load of dry towels or sheets to cushion the blanket from banging around in the machine. Commercial machines should be used for heavier blankets.
Stuffed animals are recommended surface cleaning only. However, if one must be washed, knotting it in a pillowcase is best.

What does Peace Weighted Products use to weight the blankets?
Peace Weighted Products uses non-toxic poly pellets for weighting the blankets. We do not use recycled plastic pellets as recycled pellets can have an odor and unknown chemical compounds. We only use 100% new pellets.
Peace Weighted Products uses new aquarium gravel for weighting the lap pads, neck wraps and stuffed animals. This is because aquarium gravel is more dense than poly pellets allowing for more weight in the smaller products. Also, aquarium gravel is washer/dryer safe.
