Creature Commforts Weighted Blankets with ultra-plush removable duvet cover
Discover the sheltering, soothing sensation of a weighted blanket!
A weighted blanket provides gentle, even pressure, to calm and relax the body. It can be a powerful tool for people who experience anxiety, restlessness, meltdowns, panic attacks, or who have trouble sleeping.
Creature Commforts weighted blankets are expertly designed for maximum benefit. They come in various weights and are sized to cover the users’ body (rather than the whole bed) – delivering powerfully soothing, optimal weight per square inch. The size of a large throw blanket, Creature Commforts blankets are perfect for lounging on the couch, watching TV, reading a good book, taking a nap or sleeping.
Each blanket supports a community – one stitch at a time. They are created by a team of talented makers, some of whom are on the autism spectrum. Many have family members with autism or sensory processing disorder. Each blanket is signed by the person who made it, with love and care.

How does a weighted blanket work?
Calming deep pressure, like a hug
A weighted blanket is a heavy blanket that provides gentle, even pressure, like a whole-body hug to help calm and ground the body.
Who can use a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets can be a powerful tool for people who experience anxiety, restlessness, meltdowns, or who have trouble sleeping. Think of the soothing effects of swaddling a baby. Weighted blankets are not recommended for children under 3, and we recommend consulting a physician for anyone with a special healthcare need.
How do you choose the right weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets are recommended to be 5 – 10% of body weight plus a pound. Individual preferences for weight vary. Creature Commforts blankets are “Right Sized,” so the recommended amount of weight is on the user, not laying beside him or her on the bed.

Removable cover, evenly-distributed weight
The cover is machine washable and dry-able. The liner can also be machine washed on gentle cycle, and dried in the dryer. It must be dried thoroughly. For blankets over 6 pounds, we recommend using a commercial laundry should the liner need to be washed.
Most weighted blankets contain poly pellets, glass or even metal! Ours are filled with organic millet, a 100% renewable, hypo-allergenic grain grown in the U.S.A. Millet grains are remarkably stable and can even be heated in the microwave. The fine grain of the millet provides an incomparable tactile sensory experience and conforms to every curve of the body, distributing the weight in a way no other weighted filler does.
The liner is made of 100% premium unbleached muslin. We sew the millet into individual pockets in the liner and the liner attaches to the cover with ties.
