Our new weighted blankets are filled with silicone beads. Silicone beads are very dense (1.5 g/cm3), so our blankets are 40% thinner than those filled with plastic polypellets. In fact, the beads are so small (0.6 mm) that they do not feel or sound granular (reducing tactile and auditory stimulation) leading to faster relaxation and a better night's sleep. There are 8 edge loops for connecting to a cover. Weighted blankets are a form of deep pressure therapy and can be very beneficial to children with sensory challenges! Did you know that they are also good for: 1. Managing Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, and ADHD 2. Reducing stress and anxiety 3. Improving concentration 4. Boosting serotonin (the happy hormone) 5. Helping to relieve insomnia and improving quality of sleep Choose from 3 weights - the consensus is that the blanket should weigh about 10% of the user's weight.
