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.

Your satisfaction is very important to us. With every purchase, we’re offering a 30-day risk free return period. All we ask in return is that the product is kept in good condition (normal use is OK), the customer pays return shipping, we get all of the pieces back and you tell us why it wasn’t for you.
