Best blankets and wraps for wrapping around the shoulders and body

Some children and adults love to be wrapped in a weighted blanket. The weight in the blanket applies calming deep pressure to the shoulders, neck and upper body and the wrapping itself imparts a feeling of security and wellbeing. This can help to ease relieve stress and anxiety, aid concentration and reduce meltdowns.

We recommend our classic, snuggly, fleece or galaxy ranges of weighted blankets for wrapping around the shoulders and body. Our homemade weighted blankets are made up of small individual cells which contain weighted beads. These small cells enable the blanket to hug the body, imparting the weight evenly where it is needed.

When using a weighted blanket to wrap around the body, the weight should not exceed 10% of the user’s bodyweight, and a lighter blanket would suffice as the weight will be concentrated on the shoulders.

Never roll a child or adult in a weighted blanket and always ensure they blanket can be self-removed by the user if they feel uncomfortable or too hot.

Our range of shoulder wraps are smaller than our blankets and are ideal for those that like the weight directed on the shoulder and neck. They are ideal for sitting at the table, on the sofa or at the school desk. Just as the weighted blankets, the wrap is made up of small individual cells, filled with weighted beads that evenly distribute the weight across the shoulders and neck.
