The best starting point is 10% of your body weight. Some people will need more, but with our exclusive stackable feature, you can add more whenever you want.
The pods are 100% cotton. We use food grade plastic for the beads. The covers are polyester.
The biggest difference is how much more pressure stimulation we can create. Because we use smaller pockets and large plastic beads, the beads form to the body better. Other blankets have a lot of wasted space which means the weight is distributed unevenly and you end up not receiving the benefits weighted pressure provides. You’ll also notice a difference in how well swadl blankets breathe. We don’t fill ours with heat-retaining fiber batting so you’ll sleep at a much more comfortable temperature.
If you are using the cover as well, remove the weighted pod from inside and wash everything in the washer. You’ll probably need to wash the pod by itself to allow as much room as possible and not overload the washer. We recommend using cold water, a gentle cycle and then air drying to avoid any shrinkage.
Yes. swadl blankets are not large enough to cover an entire bed. They are designed for you to receive the weight, not your mattress. So they can be used either under or on top of your existing sheets and blankets.

Our top priority is helping swadl’ers to experience greater relaxation and a better night’s sleep. If you determine your blanket isn’t the right fit within 30 days, we welcome you to email us a return authorization request.
We ask that you try the blanket for 10-14 days before submitting a request. This will allow your body and sleep patterns to adapt to the swadl blanket. You will then experience the maximum benefits that a weighted blanket can provide.
And if it doesn’t feel quite right, let us know! We’ll give you some tips that have helped many others with similar experiences. Even if you need an adjustment period, you’ll be sleeping like a baby under swadl in short order.
