Full single bed quilt size (140 cm x 210 cm) weighted blankets - suitable for year round use - soft glass bead filling - available for immediate shipping. Each All Seasons Weighted Blanket comes in it’s very own carry bag!
Weighted blankets are like warm hugs; filled with soft micro glass beads they provide opportunity for deep pressure calming input. The weight of the blanket serves as a deep touch therapy, stimulating deep touch receptors all over your body that promote a more grounded and safe feeling to the individual.
Weighted blankets have traditionally been recommended by occupational therapists and used by parents as a means to help children with sensory disorders, anxiety, stress, or issues related to autism, and research continues to support this practice.
When used correctly a weighted blanket can be a powerful addition to anyone’s sensory tool box.
All Seasons Weighted Blankets are so versatile, not only for sleeping, the 3kg blanket can be rolled up and placed on shoulders (shoulder collar), folded up and placed on their lap during play using it as a Lap Blanket or using it like a shawl to use the weight across the back of the body.
For sleeping, lay the All Seasons Weighted Blanket over the bed to achieve a good night, for both going to sleep and staying asleep. The blanket conforms to the body shape smoothly for a gentle weighted feeling. During the seasons of the year you can easily adapt the weighted blanket to suit the needs of the user.

• Restless moving, kicking, pushing up against you or the walls during sleeping

Frequently Asked Questions
What size blanket should I purchase?
All blankets are the same size 140cm x 210cm designed to fit inside a single bed quilt cover
What weight of blanket should I purchase?
Sensory Tools All Seasons Weighted Blanket comes in 3 weights, 3kg, 5kg and 7kg. The weight is evenly spread over the whole of the blanket so only part of the blankets weight is actually on the user when sleeping.
e.g. A 5kg blanket is suitable for the average 7-year-old who is 127cm tall and weighs 25kg. As the weight is evenly spread over the blanket (which is 210cm long) only half of the blanket weight is on the child which would be 2.5kg (10% of the child’s weight). The advantage or these blankets is as the child grows there is extra weight and the blanket maintains the 10% ratio up to teenage years.
3kg – is suitable for a small child up to 6 years. This blanket may also be folded and used as a shoulder weight, lap blanket and shawl wrap.
5kg – 6-12 years old.
7kg – Suitable for teenager up to and including adults.
Can the blanket be washed?
The blanket can be machine washed, (check machine weight limit for heavier blankets). We suggest using a gentle cycle and line drying.
What is it made of?
The blanket is 100% cotton with soft micro glass bead filling.
Will it be too hot in summer?
The All Seasons blanket is suitable for use all year around, in the hot weather use the blanket without any cover. As the weather cools slip the blanket into a single bed quilt cover for extra warmth and when the nights get cold the weighted blanket will fit inside the quilt cover, with the quilt, for the warmth needed.
Does the blanket come with a warranty?
All Seasons Weighted Blanket has a 3-month warranty against manufacturing defects.
What if my blanket isn’t suitable?
Sensory Tools offers a 1-month (from date of purchase) money back guarantee, if you find the blanket to be unsuitable within this period, contact us ([email protected]) to arrange for the return and refund. The money back guarantee only applies to the blanket and does not include shipping costs.
Note: These warranties do not exclude your rights under ACCC Consumer Guarantees.
Note: Due to the blankets being hand made, slight variations of the stated weight may occur - this has negligible effect on the user as the slight variation is spread over the whole blanket.
