Custom Minky Weighted Blanket. Choose your fabrics for your new luxurious minky weighted blanket.
Lap Pad (14x22)
***If you are specifically looking for a TWIN SIZE please select our 40x70 or 40x80 option. Anything smaller than 40x70 is not considered TWIN SIZE.***
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERING:
1. Select your front fabric, we have hundreds of options available for one side of your blanket, so much in fact that we cannot fit them all into this listing. Any patterned or solid color fabric that we have listed in our shop as a MADE TO ORDER option is available. If you do not see something you like please feel free to visit fabric.com and select any quilting cotton, or 100% cotton fabric option. Please ensure there is a stock level on fabric.com of at LEAST 10 yards available for the fabric that you want.
Please select from CUDDLE DIMPLE MINKY, CUDDLE SOLID MINKY, or EMBOSSED MINKY. Our experience has proven that NOT ALL MINKY fabric makes the best weighted blankets. While soft and extra fluffy, some of the "shaggy" and extra thick minky fabric has a very loose weave and cannot hold the weight for long term use and longevity. If you have any questions, please message us prior to ordering and let us know your thoughts on minky and we can tell you if it would be suitable for a weighted blanket.
In the COMMENT BOX at checkout write the DESCRIPTION of the fabric you selected. Also select a backing fabric, it may be a print or a solid but you NEED to specify what you would like. *Please note that while great care is given to ensure ALL fabric listed has ample yardage left for ALL sizes of blankets offered, some fabrics might not have enough yardage to create the largest of blankets available. If for some reason enough fabric is not available you will be notified right away for alternatives and/or upgrades for your purchase. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
To choose your fabrics, please look at the following sites or send us a conversation via etsy messenger.

Find exactly what you love at fabric.com YOUR FABRIC WILL BE ORDERED FOR YOU AFTER YOU COMPLETE YOUR PURCHASE HERE. *************PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE YOUR FABRIC SELECTIONS WRITTEN INTO THE NOTES AT CHECKOUT. A FRONT and BACK SELECTION NEEDS TO BE MADE.**************************
*IF THERE IS NO FABRIC SELECTION MADE AT TIME OF CHECKOUT YOU WILL BE CONTACTED* Upon contact, if no correspondence if received within ONE WEEK of purchase your order will be filled with a SOLID color weighted blanket at the discretion of the seller in either black, gray, or navy. Please remember that ALL SALES ARE FINAL and once you purchase, there are NO REFUNDS for any reason.
Our blankets are required to be made from 2 pieces of uncut, solid pieces of fabric. We cannot quilt or piece multiple fabrics together to create special designs, increase length or width, etc. Due to the restrictions of our liability policy we cannot have seams on the front or back surface of the fabrics, only on the 4 sides where we attach and triple seam the front and the back fabrics together. There is too much stress on seams with weighted pellets between the 2 layers of fabric to have quilted seams therefore reducing the integrity and longevity of the blanket.
We also offer GLASS BEADS as an upgrade. To order your new custom blanket with GLASS BEADS please also include this listing in your cart at checkout with the same pounds selected as your blanket:
The glass bead filling is an UPGRADE. If you do not purchase the glass bead upgrade listing your blanket will not be filled with glass beads even if you write it in the comment box at checkout. There is an extra fee for the glass beads.
Price of this listing includes fabrics that retail on fabric websites of $14.99 or LESS per yard. If the fabric you desire is more than $14.99 per yard, please contact shop for additional fee to use the fabric you desire. Please do not select fabric that is "knit" or "canvas," these fabrics do not make for a comfortable weighted blanket. Knit is very very stretchy and canvas is very thick and tends to feel very "scratchy."
***This listing covers ONE SIDE of the blanket to be a minky fabric. We do not make double sided minky weighted blankets due to the polyester content of the minky. Air circulation is important to the blanket user and double sided minky blankets tend to trap heat.***
This is a sensory weighted blanket. The blanket comes in 3 to 20 pounds and measurements are in inches.
The blanket is reinforced around all the sides and the weight inside the blanket is evenly spread and unable to gather in just one area. Individual sections are typically approx 6x6 inches.
This is filled with non toxic poly pellets and can be washed in a washing machine and dried in a clothes dryer. This is a very durable blanket.
Blankets are shipped by USPS PRIORITY MAIL. Please note that there may be delays beyond this shops control due to the nature of having to depend on having the fabric shipped to the shop to be made for you. All effort will be placed to ensure accurate shipping times to you and you will be contacted if there is any foreseen delay due to the shipment of fabric to the shop.
By competing the checkout process you agree to the following terms and conditions. Thank you for understanding. Please know that our #1 goal is to keep everyone, especially your children SAFE and HAPPY.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
Weighted Blankets should be used as part of therapy. No one should EVER be forced to use a weight product, or wrapped/swaddled in one, nor should a weighted blanket be used over someones head and/or face area. Weighted Blankets should be made available to the individual and used as a tool for comfort as they feel the need. Do not use on infants under 3 months of age ever, or on infants under one year without consulting with your physician, persons with serious lung conditions or difficulty breathing, without consent and direction of a physician. Please consult your physician, clinician, or therapist with any questions about specific individual use. If poly-pellets should release from a Blanket due to damage, or long-term wear, they are not harmful, but can be a choking hazard, and care should be taken to make sure they are not ingested, as is the case with any non-edible item. NamasteHandMade manufactures products only and cannot give advice on Therapy. We will make each product to order based on your order & specifications. The formula we recommend is 10% of body weight + 1 lb, is the industry standard, and has been suggested by many therapists. We are not your licensed therapists. To ensure you have the correct weight for your needs, please contact your doctor, clinician or therapist. NamasteHandMade takes every precaution to ensure a quality product. Please inspect for defect or damage before use. If noted please discontinue use immediately. Products are completely encased and all exterior seams are double stitched for your safety. If you notice a tear, especially one exposing pellets, discontinue use until repair or replacement can be made. Do not ever place our products in the Microwave Oven as they could cause serious burns or a fire. Also heat such as the oven or direct heat from sources such as an iron will cause damage. If you would like to warm your blanket, we recommend placing it in the clothes dryer for 10-20 minutes as the ONLY way to warm it.

Return Policy: All sales are final
This blanket is hand made and to ensure straight lines and even weight distribution we use a non toxic chalk to mark our sewing lines. Please be aware that your blanket will have visible lines that will disappear either with use, or after washing blanket in a washing machine. This is a cosmetic feature that does not alter the effectiveness of the blanket. Color of lines may be any of the following: white, cream, yellow, blue, red, orange, or purple. We select the color of chalk used based on the color of your fabric selection. We cannot accept requests on color of chalk used. Thank you for understanding.
We do not use any "poly fil," liners, extra layers of fabric, or "fluff" in our blankets. Allergens, potential for mold growth if not laundered and dried properly, potential for a host of complications for your new weighted blanket would be present if we altered our blanket design. Please note that your weighted blanket from Namaste Hand Made LLC will be constructed of 2 layers of fabric (one layer for the "front" and one layer for the "back."), and weight filling. If you desire a "thicker" blanket or one with "stuffing" or "fluff" we could recommend purchasing elsewhere. Our main goal is the safety of our blanket users. While we strive to make a beautiful blanket for you, we are making and providing a sensory tool/blanket with a purpose. All the extra components are not necessary for the primary function of a weighted blanket.
Also, at this time...unless specifically discussed prior to blanket purchase we do not accept custom thread color choices. We will use a matching/complimenting/ or neutral thread color for your new blanket. If the color of thread is important to you we will be happy to discuss your color preferences PRIOR to your blanket purchase otherwise thread color is left at our discretion.
As with any handmade item, there will be some variation on inch measurement and weight. Tape measures, quilting rules, yard sticks, and other measuring tools can and will measure an "inch" a bit different. We do our best to produce your finished product as close to the advertised dimension and weight as possible. Also, to ensure that your item remains in NEW condition, and to avoid any ALLERGY interactions, we DO NOT PREWASH FABRIC. After you receive your item, should you choose to wash-please note, the majority of our products are made with cotton or other natural fibers that can shrink during the laundering process.
CLARIFICATION TO "POCKET/PARTITION/SECTIONS" THAT HOLD THE WEIGHTED PELLETS OR GLASS BEADS:
As described earlier in this listing, our blankets have sewn "pockets, partitions, sections" that hold the weighted medium used to weigh the blanket. These are approximately 6x6 inches. PLEASE NOTE: EACH POCKET WILL HOLD A SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF WEIGHT IN OUNCES BASED ON THE OVERALL WEIGHT OF THE BLANKET. -Hence “evenly distributed.” The pocket sizes will not change based on overall weight of the blanket. For example, a 5 pound blanket would have a lesser amount of filling than a 20 pound blanket. ALSO PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE FILLING IN EACH POCKET WILL MOVE AROUND IN THAT PARTICULAR POCKET. To reiterate, while the OVERALL weighted filling of the blanket will not shift and gather or bunch into a mass of filling on the bottom or sides of the blanket when in use, the filling inside each pocket will be able to freely move around it's assigned pocket. We are working with plastic pellets or small glass beads....they will not be individually sewn into the weave of the fabric to hold it to one assigned part of the fabric like a button is sewn onto clothing. We cannot control the gravitational force of the earth and make all pellets/beads not move around at all. We apologize that we cannot fulfill everyone's expectations based off of blankets that are not our own. We encourage that if you have used/purchased a weighted blanket in the past and love it and the way it is made, please repurchase blankets from that company and do not expect our blankets to mimic their design. We have worked hard to perfect our design and what works for our customers. We will not fulfill ANY requests to alter our design for ANY reason.
Filling medium is based on WEIGHT and not the physical amount of pellets/beads included in each pocket. Please do not disassemble blanket and count each pellet then complain that one pocket has 2,532 pellets and another pocket only has 2,439.
ALL LISTINGS DEFAULT TO THE SMALLEST AND LIGHTEST OPTION WE HAVE AVAILABLE. If you do not click on the drop down menu and select a specific size and weight you WILL be ordering our SMALLEST AND LIGHTEST SIZE. We do not accept returns or exchanges for any reason, including but not limited to: "I expected a twin size and got a small, light blanket." "Why did you send me a tiny blanket when I wanted to cover my full size bed with this." And so on...
ALSO: The aesthetics of our finished products are important to us, and so is our stability and durability. To ensure our triple stitch design all the way around our blankets we FOLD OVER THE BACKING FABRIC on top of the front fabric to create a band of color/design from the back to the front. If this fold over will be an issue for yourself or the blanket user PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE from us.
Having the experience of making weighted blankets for years now, we have to insist that if you have ANY questions please message the shop PRIOR TO ORDERING. We promise that unless you message us overnight we will respond quickly.
PROCESSING TIMES are listed for you to view prior to ordering. PLEASE NOTE: Writing in the “Notes to seller” section of your cart at checkout that you need your order before our processing times indicate do not make our processing times null and void for you. If you need a blanket before our processing times will allow please message us to discuss your needs and when appropriate we will advise on our “Rush” option if applicable.
Also, writing in the notes to seller section when you checkout with demands does not nullify our shop terms and policies. If processing is 2 to 3 weeks and you need delivery in 7 days DO NOT PURCHASE and then write in the notes section in your cart at checkout that if we cannot accommodate such a request then to cancel your order. WE DO NOT CANCEL FOR ANY REASON.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK FIRST THEN PURCHASE.
Deliver/Shipping concerns. We do not hand deliver packages, our items are shipped though a third party-typically the USPS. We do not have access to their tracking system and differently than you do. We cannot be responsible for their actions/delivery methods.
Here is a run down/cliff notes for those who prefer less reading material:
Our blankets will:
1. Have chalk lines, don't worry...they come off with use or washing. If your blanket didn't have straight lines you would be sad. This gives us a guide to sew on. We are working on patenting contact lenses with grid lines so we can see lines while we sew and not have to use chalk. Patent Pending.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.
2. Have pockets the size of approx 6x6 inches.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.
3. The filling used for the weight of your blanket will be evenly distributed into those pockets, but that filling will be able to move around that assigned pocket. (Think of your toddler's snack bag filled with cheerios, if you fill it too full you can't close the top, but if they grab the bag and shake it, the cheerios will shake around inside. Same thing with our blankets.) We can't fill the pockets too full, because if we did we couldn't close them. Our blankets are not air tight.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
4. Thread color, our discretion unless discussed prior to purchase.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
5. Our blankets are literally 2 pieces of fabric with the weighted fill in between. No fluff, no fill, no batting. If you want a fluffy blanket we will be happy to recommend another shop that uses such a design. We will not add fluff, fill, or batting to our blankets.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
6. We incorporate the backing fabric onto the front. Please see pictures in listings or message us for examples.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.
7. Your blanket size in an order for a custom blanket will default in your order to our 28x32 size in 3 pounds if you do not select the size and weight you want. If you want a twin size 20 pound blanket for $50, please go to your nearest Walmart or to Amazon for a Chinese import.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE PURCHASE
8. All dimensions and weights are approximate. We strive to be exact, but scales and measuring implements can vary. We offer weighted filling as a supply if you want to make an exact version for yourself. We will be happy to provide you with a link if you are interested.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE PURCHASE
9. We cannot sell an item as NEW if we WASH the fabric; therefore, you may experience shrinkage once you launder the blanket. Please purchase a size up if this will be an issue for you.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE PURCHASE
10. We do not manufacture fabric. We do not design patterns. Comments/requests for fabric that does not exist cannot be fulfilled. We regret this deeply.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK BEFORE PURCHASE
11. If you do not provide us with your specific fabric requests when purchasing a CUSTOM blanket we will fulfill our order with fabric selections at our discretion. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE MESSAGES FROM US IF YOU PURCHASED A CUSTOM BLANKET.

I absolutely love my blanket! It's the perfect size, and so comfy. Stacey was incredibly helpful making sure I chose a good fabric and weight, and she helped me coordinate the colors as well. I was very surprised at how quickly I received it! Especially with it being the holidays. I can't thank them enough for what they do
