Choose the weight of the blanket at least 10% of the body weight. Usually 10% of your body weight plus 1 is the weight you should choose. (Note: 1 lb less or more does not make that much difference). Recommend 48\'\'x72\'\' for twin bed, 60\'\'x80\'\' for queen bed, 80\'\'x87\'\' for king bed. Due to its weight, it\'s not necessary to choose oversized blanket. The weighted inner layer is made of 100% premium breathable cotton and its small compartments are filled with hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, odorless, glass beads which are evenly distributed in each compartment. The glass beads are quiet when you turn over and it\'s not bumpy like plastic pellets weighted blanket. The weighted inner layer is machine-washable on a low, gentle setting. Recommend dry-clean. A better option is to purchase a removable duvet cover for easier cleaning. The weighted inner layer and the duvet cover are sold separately. A good gift for you and your loved ones. The heavy blanket helps relax the nerve system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged and make you fall asleep fast and sleep better.

Please don\'t use it on your little ones or people who can\'t move the heavy blanket themselves.
