We spoke to an expert on the matter and here's what we found out:

Occupational Therapist (OT), Ana do Valle's recommendation:

"For the average person, a weighted blanket should be 5-7% of their bodyweight. In cases of trauma, high stress or other conditions, 10% of their bodyweight is recommended because there is a need for more proprioception."

If 10% of your body weight is in between the weight sizes we offer, we recommend getting the lighter blanket.

Some people prefer a blanket that is heavier or lighter as each person's needs are unique. Those who struggle with sensory overload may crave a much heavier weight, for example. As Ana do Valle (OT) further explains:

"Some individuals (adults or children) feel comfortable and benefit from using heavier weighted blankets. They utilize the blanket for 10-15 min to down-regulate the nervous system. This can be at bed time or when taking "me time" during the day. In this case the blanket functions more so as a cocoon. It’s always helpful to consult with an occupational therapist when you have questions regarding the use of a weighted blanket as weight can vary from case to case. Most importantly, the individual needs to be able to choose the weight they feel comfortable with. The weight should not be an imposition but a choice based on comfort level."

Tips to figuring out the best weight for you:

Case 1. If you're already sleeping with many blankets...

Try weighing all your blankets together to see what weight you like:

  1. Weigh yourself on a scale and note the number.
  2. Pick up your blankets, stand on the scale, and note the number.
  3. Calculate the difference between those numbers, and you’ll know the weight of the blankets.
  4. Once you've found the weight, decide if you’d like your weighted blanket to be heavier or if you're content with the weight you’re already using. 
  5. Choose a weighted blanket that best matches your height and preferred weight.

    Case 2. If you're not sure what amount of weight feels good on your body...

    1. If you have not yet tried sleeping under a pile of blankets, gather together as many as you can find, hop on a bed, and spread the blankets out over your body.
    2. Keep adding blankets (or towels, clothes, whatever you can find!) until you reach a weight you are happy with.
    3. Using the instructions in case 1, weigh out your blankets.
    4. Once you've found the weight, choose a weighted blanket that best matches your height and the weight you've settled on. 

    KEEP IN MIND: holding 20 pounds of weights in your hands feels a lot different than having a 20-pound blanket spread out over your body.

    Best ever!

    I bought the first blanket for me..... i loved it ... so I bought the second for my best friend and she loved it as well.. I bought 2 covers for my blanket and 2 more for my friend. They are great! The way they are designed to be fixed to the blanket is great! Tried a 'normal' cover until the covers were back on stock and they 'moved' around the blanket... The covers from Earth Blanket are great, quality is great, design is great! Love them!!!

    Appreciating your love of Earth Blankets, Freya! A truly loyal customer ☺️

    Yes, our duvet covers are designed with loops all along the edges to make sure they stay in place & don't move around like a regular cover would. Glad you all received your covers well in Germany & beyond ❤️

    Wonderful earthing and PPN healing support .

    I highly recommend these wonderful weighted blankets. They are very soothing and calming to the nervous system. It feels like being safe and protected, and allows for a profound sense of rest, relaxation and even meditation. I love using the blanket after a long day, especially after stressful or upsetting events, Mostly I use it in my practice as trauma therapist as it can help with many different symptoms especially of birth trauma.

    Thank you Shantika for your therapeutic recommendation! Appreciate your expertise in this field as well for those undergoing any trauma, PTSD or other challenges that can greatly impact sleep. I'm happy to know you get to receive nervous system support as well from Earth Blankets!
