One of the questions we get most often from customers is,”Can you make my weighted blanket cover my double/queen/king size bed?”
We understand that people want blankets to cover the entire bed, but a weighted blanket is an unique item designed specifically with your sleep needs in mind.
Weighted Blankets, unlike regular bedding, work best when it covers your body with little overhang. That ensures the maximum amount of weight is on you and that you aren’t paying for weight you don’t use.
The size of a weighted blanket plays a factor too. Currently blankets in our 45X70 range top out at 34 lbs. We work daily with 30+lb blankets and it can be challenging, so imagine doubling the size to fit a queen or king sized bed. A blanket in the 60-70lb range would be physically difficult to move around while sleeping and potentially dangerous.
And, unlike duvets, quilts and coverlets, where a drape over the edge of the bed adds to the decor, weighted blankets that hang off the edge will inevitably slide to the floor under their own weight. You don’t want to be fighting to keep the blanket on you when you are trying to sleep.
In addition, if you share your bed, your partner may not need or want a weighted blanket, some even find it claustrophobic. Even if they do want a weighted blanket, because they are custom made for your height and weight your partner may need a different size entirely.
If maintaining the look of your room is important our low profile disk system means that your blanket can be used under your blankets over a sheet. Or you can bring in a twin duvet cover to match or compliment your decor and we will make a cover for your blanket.
With our experience we know that our customers need a weighted blanket that not only can be used in bed but if they travel, visit friends, or even if they are watching TV on the couch. Now you know why size matters, let us help you pick the perfect weighted blanket for your needs.
