How much weight should be in a weighted blanket?

The weighted blanket should be purchased for the individual who will be using it, as it needs to be approximately 10%-15% of their body weight to work effectively.

This amount of weight provides the body with the effects of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP), which gently applies surface pressure all over the body and releases serotonin and dopamine, biological chemicals that promote relaxation.

In the case of the Interweave weighted blanket, select the appropriate weight from the list below.

In metric measurements:

Body weight: 32kg to 44kg = 3.2kg blanket

Body weight: 45kg to 59kg = 4.5kg blanket

Body weight: 60kg to 69kg = 6kg blanket

Body weight: 70kg to 79kg = 7kg blanket

Body weight: 80kg to 94kg = 8kg blanket

Body weight: 95kg upwards = 9.5kg blanket

 

In Imperial measurements:

Body weight: 5st to 6st 13lbs = 3.2kg blanket

Body weight: 7st to 9st 4lbs = 4.5kg blanket

Body weight: 9st 5lbs to 10st 13lbs = 6kg blanket

Body weight: 11st to 12st 6lbs = 7kg blanket

Body weight: 12st 7lbs to 14st 11lbs = 8kg blanket
