What is the Right Sized Weighted Blanket for You?
How to Choose the Right-Sized Weighted Blanket®
Choosing a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® is based on each individual's need.
The formula commonly used and recommended for children and young teens by Licensed Therapists is 10% of the body weight plus 1 or 2 pounds. In older teens and adults this formula can be quite heavy so please consult your healthcare professional if you are not sure which weight and size is right for you.
Be sure to consider how you plan to use your Mosaic Weighted Blanket®. Our products can be to used to calm and relax in various ways by laying it across the lap or torso, wrapping around the shoulders, covering just the legs or covering the whole body for sleeping.
Consult your Healthcare Professional or Licensed Therapist for the correct size, weight and duration for use before ordering a weighted blanket as a supplement for treatment of a specific disorder.

The industry standard is that most OT’s and PTs recommend 10% of body weight plus a couple of pounds. Some people prefer more weight, some people prefer less weight.
If you or your loved one is a sensory person, with sensory processing disorder, or issues where you or your loved one are seeking cuddling or weight on you, any amount of weight will make you feel better, so you can rest assured when you order a weighted blanket, that there is no magic formula. Weighted blankets help, so we have created a chart with the lighter side of how much weight you should order to the heavier side of what you should order, depending on your weight. MWB has seen people order blankets that are too heavy, so we feel that if you choose the lighter side of the chart, it will still provide great benefits for sleep and relaxation.
Mosaic Weighted Blankets has taken orders for and sold thousands of blankets to customers so we are sharing our experiences with you and our philosophy on what has worked with our customers.
