Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is a weighted blanket and how does it work?

A: A weighted blanket is a type of blanket filled with materials such as plastic pellets or glass beads that make it heavier than a regular blanket. The added weight of the blanket is believed to provide deep touch pressure stimulation, which can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. This is because the pressure from the weight is thought to stimulate the production of serotonin and melatonin levels.

Q: Who can benefit from using a weighted blanket? 

A:  Weighted blankets are often used to alleviate symptoms of PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia and stress. They may also be beneficial for individuals with conditions such as ADHD, autism, and sensory processing disorders. However, it's important to note that not everyone may benefit from using a weighted blanket, and it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional before using one.

Q: How do I choose the right weight for my Yorkville weighted blanket?

A: The recommended weight for a weighted blanket is 10% of your body weight, plus or minus 1-2 pounds. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, a 15-pound blanket would be appropriate. However, some people may prefer a lighter or heavier blanket, depending on their personal preference.


Q: How do I care for my Yorkville weighted blanket?

A: All Yorkville weighted blankets are machine washable but to keep your blanket in its best condition, we always recommend our Yorkville Duvet Cover.
