Choosing a the Size 

How do I decide on the size for a Weighted Blanket?

A weighted blanket should at least reach from the chin to a few inches past the toes.  A small child will like the Toddler size because he can handle it better. It should not be heavier that he/she can carry. A size Youth works well for a grade school age child. The size Average fits most women and your adults. Size Tall works well for people around six foot or taller. The size Large is popular because it stays in place on a bed nicely. If the blanket will be carried to different places, like in the car or to the family room, the smallest size that fits the user is recommended. A small child using a large size blanket would need for the weight that is appropriate for their size to be sewn into in the upper center of the blanket.
