We started this dream of ours a year ago after our son was diagnosed with a sensory processing disorder. Using a weighted blanket with him was like night and day. So we strive to create fun and unique weighted blankets that are made from the heart. If you don't know about weight blankets they are beneficial for those with autism, Rett syndrome, ADHD, ADD, PTSD, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, sleep disorders, Asperger's syndrome, Parkinson's disease, and many more conditions. They are often used as a calming and/or concentration tool. But while great success is often seen, please note these blankets are not guaranteed for every individual. Most therapists recommend the weight of the blanket be 10% of the user’s weight, plus one pound. For example, if the user weighs 55 lbs, the blanket should be about 6.5-7lbs. ****Obviously, they should NOT be used for infants or any other individual who may struggle to move out from under one.**** If you have any questions don't hesitate to message us at any time!

Hi everyone!

I apologize, but I might have to close the ordering down for the holidays. Things such as the pellets or fabric, are taking a bit longer to be delievered to me than what they normally do, and the hours I work, sometimes I don't make it to the office in time to pick them up when they are delievered to me.

***The orders that I'm currently working on now will still be scheduled to ship by early next week, but for the ones that want to place new ones--unless they're blankets from my shop, I probably won't be able to finish and ship them out and have them to you before Christmas.***

I am still taking orders, just know that I can't guarantee timeframes for you. :)

I've been so busy I almost forgot to post the deadline to get orders in. So far customs are going to be the 18th for the deadline (unless it's fabric I can find easily around the stores here.) If it's a local order, it will be around the 20th(tentatively) Again if it's from fabric I can find locally because I don't know how quick things can be shipped to my place in order for the blanket to be made and shipped out in time for Christmas.

For those who have ordered from me recently, I'm starting to get the fabric shipments in so I will be able to start on them tonight, *fingers crossed * which hopefully, by this weekend I can start shipping them out. If not, then early next week(monday/tuesday) by the latest they will be shipped out. So dont worry, I haven't forgotten about anyone! :)

Thank you again for being patient with me! ❤

Hi everyone!

I'm still here. Kay's Weighted Comforts is still around and we arr still making blankets. I know I havent been too active on this page for some months now. There were some big family changes, big moves, and back in october I returned to work. But, yes Ive been making blankets still here and there. I havent made a trip to the fabric store in some time to pick up new materials for blankets to put up on the etsy page.

Holiday season is upon us again so if you are looking into getting a blanket made for yourself or for a love one, I am available to do them. The turn around is still going to be about the same as it usually is when I'm not working. (2 days to maybe a week tops) So don't hesitate to message me and I'll try to answer back as soon as I can. Thank you all!

General information

*What are weighted blankets and what are they used for? If you don't know about weight blankets they are beneficial for those with autism, Rett syndrome, ADHD, ADD, PTSD, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, sleep disorders, Asperger's syndrome, Parkinson's disease, and many more conditions. They are often used as a calming and/or concentration tool. (But while great success is often seen, please note these blankets are not guaranteed for every individual :) ) *How much weight should I order? Most therapist recommend the weight of the blanket should be 10% of the user's weight. For example, if the user weighs 55lbs, the blanket should be around 6.5lbs-7lbs. *What is the age range that can use these blankets? They're great for people of all ages-BUT obviously, they should NOT be used for children under 2 yrs of age-or anyone other individual that may struggle to move out from underneath one! *What is used for the inside of the blankets? I use plastic poly pellets(for the weight) and also add poly-fil to add some "cushion". You can always ask that the poly-fil be left out. *What blanket is the right size for me? That is also up to you! I make lap blankets(approx 12"x18"), toddler/child size blankets, and adult blankets(or anywhere in between!) Small blankets are about the size of a standard toddler blanket(34"x50"). Small blankets are good for children until they're about 4-5 years old. Anyone over 5'5 should go with an adult sized blanket! Adult blankets can range from 38"x62" to maybe 72". *How big of a blanket should I order? Weighted blankets are made to fit the BODY, not the BED, the blanket should lay on the user without it hanging off the sides of the bed--because if it did, you would be fighting the blanket all night from falling off your bed! *How do I wash my blanket? Machine wash separately in warm or cold water. Tumble dry low. Do NOT iron, and do NOT microwave! If your blanket has bright colors that may run--wash the first time in cold water with 1 cup salt to set the colors. For flannel fabrics-you can add a fabric softener, or 1 cup of white vinegar during rinsing to help soften the flannel and to help remove piling. *What types of payments do you take? I currently take paypal, cash, and debit. Sorry, no personal checks at this time! *How long does it take you to make a blanket? I can usually get them out pretty quick. Usually in around 2-3 days, maybe 1 week tops depending on fabric and material availability. Please keep in mind that I do work full time, and have 3 little ones at home, but I do keep in touch with my customers when there is any possible delay! *Where do you get your materials, and what type of material do you use? I buy what I can, when I can from Joann's and other local fabric businesses. So I'm usually getting regular shipments. As I've stated above, I do keep the customers in the loop through facebook/texting/email about the status of their orders. I use flannel, minky fabric, and fleece as those fabrics hold up better with washing and use. As always, if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!
