Coming soon to #makershaven, inside the @havenhomeclimatecare showroom, a little just for fun line we are calling #keepitclean. Just in time for the holidays, novelty aprons and tea towels [email protected] and her! These are the tamer of the collection. Others are a bit more risqué and we will refrain from posting as to not offend anyone. All will be on display at Haven as of Thursday November 12. Aprons are $20, tea towels are $5 and will not be a regular product line, just a bit of fun and levity to round out what has been one crazy year! #ygkmakers #supportlocal #justforfun #noveltygifts

Over the past 2 months I’ve kept busy by making face masks to donate to essential workers, along with dedicated friends and family. Together we have fabricated and distributed 500+ masks. With the essential workers we had committed to having received the masks they require, I am refocusing my mask making efforts! These two patterns will soon be available by donation in small, medium and large with 100%of donations going to @k4pawssd, a Canadian registered charity very near and dear to my heart. My mask design is two layers with a pocket to accommodate an extra layer of filtration, comfortable thin braided elastic for around the ears (or to attach to ear savers) and a channel across the bridge of the nose where you can insert a pipe cleaner for a form fit. #facemask #caringforyourcommunity #canadiancharity #smallbusinessowner #servicedogs

I am mortified to realize that I completely forgot to acknowledge and thank Geek eh for all of the help with cutting out these masks! These guys have been cutting out yards and yards of fabric into the pattern size and shape needed! Many hands (at a distance) sure do make light work!!

Well, just as my health was turning a corner and blanket production was set to ramp up, the world was turned on its ear! I have shifted focus and, at the request of essential workers in many capacities, started making masks. These are being made and donated to healthcare workers and officers in some of the area correctional institutions, patients at long term/assisted living facilities and anyone else who may need them. There is a place and a need for these in our community. If you have the means to make and donate a few, there are so many places happily collecting them (same with headbands and scrub caps with buttons to protect the ears of front line workers) please do! In a time when we are all feeling a lack of control over our collective situation, this is a small way of helping work toward the days when this is behind us.

Cautiously optimistic...after going 10 rounds with an autoimmune disease over the past 18 months- I’m taking baby steps😊. Not sure how far I will get or how long it will be sustainable, but I’ll keep trying!! While these are not yet filled (and the first one to be filled will be going to the ever so patient Melanie Serson) once they are finished they will be available at Haven Home ClimateCare

We are temporarily out of stock! Haven Home ClimateCare has only one blanket let and a resupply won’t be available until early June. The reasons for the delay is a shipping hiccup that has held up our receipt of the poly pellets we use to give our blankets their weight. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.

WEIGHTED BLANKETS - FAQ'S AND ORDERING DETAILS

Weighted therapies have long been a tool used by health care professionals to assist clients with Autism, however as they become more mainstream, there is a growing list of conditions that these therapies are proving very helpful in treating:

ADD/ADHD, Alzheimers, Anxiety Disorders, Arthritis, Aspergers, Autism, Chronic Pain, Fybromyalgia, Insomnia/Sleep Disorders, Parkinsons, PDD/NOS, Restless Leg, Sensory Disorders, Stress and Tension.

Recently, Irene Hogan - The Menopause Expert reached out to tell us that many of her patients have provided feedback to her that weighted blankets were proving to be helpful in mitigating their symptoms.

Available in stock items are on display at Maker's Haven located inside the Haven Home Climate Care Showroom
2495 Princess Street
Kingston, ON

These blankets, made of highest quality fleece, are beneficial for every age and demographic.

As these blankets are designed for therapeutic, and not aesthetic purposes, they are made to fit the user (and not the bed size) so that maximum benefit of the deep pressure therapy of the weight is attained. Our blankets are a standard 42" W X 60" L in size and are wighted up to 15 lbs max per blanket (we restrict the amount of weight we will put in a blanket because our products can be laundered in your home machines and we would not want to risk damage to your machine). Blankets are priced according to weight:

Up to 5 lbs - $100 per blanket
6 lbs - $105 per blanket
7 lbs - $110 per blanket
8 lbs - $115 per blanket
9 lbs - $120 per blanket
10 lbs - $125 per blanket
11 lbs - $130 per blanket
12 lbs - $135 per blanket
13 lbs - $140 per blanket
14 lbs - $145 per blanket
15 lbs - $150 per blanket

Choosing the right weight for you:

The general rule of thumb when choosing the appropriate weight for your blanket is:

For children - 10% of body weight plus 1 - 2 lbs
For adults - 5 - 10% of body weight

***We CANNOT accommodate requests for "licensed" patterns - such as Disney, John Deere etc, as we do not have the appropriate rights for resale purposes.

Our blankets are fully washable and are dryer safe. We strongly recommend that you are mindful not to overload your machines when washing these blankets, however. We certainly would not want anyone to harm their home appliances as a result!

Picking up a finished blanket ~

All blankets will be available for pick up at:
Haven Home ClimateCare
2495 Princess Street
Kingston, ON

During their regular business hours.

If an order is being shipped - full payment plus the cost of shipping is due before the purchase can be shipped.

***Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for custom orders***

We accept cash, electronic money transfers, Visa and MasterCard as forms of payment.

Our Story

We are a small business located in Bath, Ontario specializing in weighted therapy products and fidget toys. Our high quality handmade products include weighted blankets, weighted lap pad, and silent fidget mazes made of soft fleece fabric - soon to join the party will be weighted vests.

Willow Acres is truly a labour of love, this home based business was born out of necessity. As a mom of a special needs child, I discovered that getting weighted therapies for my daughter was a challenge - ordering from a large manufacturers focused more on profit than on people, the items were cost prohibitive and usually being shipped from quite a distance resulting in outrageous shipping costs. Additionally, when the items arrived, they were often manufactured from an industrial type of fabric, likened to that of a gym mat, which did not meet her soft, comforting tactile needs.

Willow Acres vision is simple - helping link families, health care professional, schools, community organization and anyone else who may benefit in Eastern Ontario to these beneficial tools at a reasonable cost.

As studies have proven, weighted products have shown to be an excellent treatment tool for Autism, Anxiety, Insomnia and a whole host of other conditions to plentiful to list.
