What is the Right Sized Weighted Blanket for You?

How to Choose the Right-Sized Weighted Blanket

weighted blanket sizesChoosing a weighted blanket is based on each individual's need.

The formula commonly used for a weighted blanket 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.

We'd like to remind anyone who is looking for a weighted blanket to please consult your Healthcare Professional or Licensed Therapist for the correct size, weight and duration of use before ordering a weighted blanket as a supplement for treatment of a specific disorder.

Mosaic Weighted Blankets® - Custom Made, Non-Toxic, 100% Cotton Weighted Blankets

Our weighted lap pads, weighted wraps and weighted blankets are all made in the USA and sized for use in the home, at school and during travel.

Our fabrics are 100% Cotton and our weighted blankets are machine washable

Each weighted blanket is filled with non-toxic commercial grade, BPA free, homo natural grade polypellets. These are a safe plastic filling for a weighted blanket.

Please note that although we do offer traditional types of blankets, ie king, queen, etc, these weighted blankets are still meant to fit the body and not necessarily the bed. This is important because of the weight they hold. A twin size weighted blanket for instance is made to cover the dimensions of the top of the mattress only. 

Full size weighted blankets, queen size weighted blankets and king size weighted blankets are available for special order and have limited fabric choices.

Custom weighted blankets ship within two weeks.

If you need your order quickly, we also offer ready made, in-stock weighted blankets that ship within 3-5 business days. 

Mosaic Weighted Blankets tries to get everyone the fabric selected. During Christmas or other rush seasons we reserve the right to substitute the fabric with a like or similar fabric.

Call or email if you're interested in creating a custom special size weighted blanket. We'd be happy to see if we can help.




If interested in a custom larger size order, please send an email to or call us at 512-514-5529 (custom weighted blankets are made to size and are a non returnable item; we don't keep larger sizes of double, queen or king size weighted blankets in stock).

The industry standard is that most Occupational and Physical Therapists recommend 10% of body weight plus a couple of pounds. What we've found is that some people prefer more weight; some 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 (sometimes also referred to as a gravity blanket), that there is no magic formula.

Weighted blankets help (just read our many positive reviews). Please refer to our chart above, which shows a range of weight, from the lighter side of how much weight you should order to the heavier side of what you should order, depending on your ideal body weight. More often, we see people order blankets that are too heavy, so we feel that that it's better to choose lighter side if you're unsure; you'll still be provided with great benefits for sleep and relaxation.
