Which Weight Should I Choose?

The most important aspect of ordering your blanket is selecting the appropriate weight. The chart below is based on my research and should be used as a reference when ordering. When ordering for a child, it may be best to round-up so that the blanket can be used for a longer period of time.

Child Weight/Blanket Weight (29x35 (Receiving) Blanket Size)

  • 20 lbs/ 3 lbs

  • 40 lbs/ 5 lbs

  • 50 lbs/ 6 lbs

Backing Fabric Options

There are two types of backing fabric available for your custom blanket, ComfortDot and Cotton. 

ComfortDot fabric is made of a mink-like dotted fabric. It is super soft to the touch.

ComfortDot is great for Sensory seeking and perfect for warmer hugs. 

Cotton backing is made from 100% cotton, and it is a cooler option overall. 


What About Duvet Covers?

Duvet covers are a great option for those who may want to change their fabric options, they preserve your blankets and are more washing-machine friendly than the weighted blankets themselves. Duvet covers are recommended for any blankets over 10lbs. 

  • Duvet covers are secured to the blanket with handcrafted knots and can easily be untied when needed for washing and changing out duvet covers.

  • Duvet Covers are available in both Comfort and 100% Cotton Backing.

  • For our Duvet Covers, the weighted blanket is available in 100% unbleached cotton. This must also be added to your cart, and is included on the same page as duvet covers.


Washing Your Blanket

Blankets over 10lbs should be washed using a commercial washing machine. Duvet covers are a great way to avoid damaging your washing machine and can be untied to wash easily.  

  • Comfort ME is not responsible for any potential damage to washing machines caused by washing our weighted blankets.

  • It is common that when fabric is washed, the colors can tend to fade. Comfort ME cannot guarantee colors and is not responsible for replacing blankets in the event of fading.
