Glass Bead Upgrade, Glass Weight for Weighted Blanket, Alternative to Poly Pellets for Weighted Blanket

$6.00



This listing is used in ADDITION to purchasing a weighted blanket that is NOT Ready to Ship.

To upgrade please select the weight of the blanket that you are purchasing and add this listing AND a CUSTOM Blanket listing or a Solid Color Weighted Blanket listing to your cart.

**Please note, glass beads CANNOT be added to a READYY TO SHIP blanket**

Glass beads are a great alternative to people who are extra sensitive to textures and sounds. These beads inside the blanket are not as bulky as the traditional poly pellets used in weighted blankets and no not make any noise when shifting inside the blanket.

Please note: There are some compatibility issues with using glass beads with certain fabrics. Most minky fabrics are compatible but some are not. Please contact us prior to ordering if you have concerns about your upgrade. ALL "dot" minky is compatible; however some of the specialty minky (i.e. "Sherpa" minky, "Llama" minky, and shaggy minkys) have a weave that is too loose to hold glass beads. Thank you for understanding.

Blankets made with glass beads remain machine washable and dryer safe.

You MUST purchase a blanket in addition to this listing. This is strictly an upgrade of material used to make your new weighted blanket.

*Please Note* Due to the size and consistency of the glass beads some materials cannot be used to create a weighted blanket with glass beads. Weave of fabric will determine eligibility. If glass beads cannot be used you will be notified and your upgrade will be canceled.

THIS IS NOT A LISTING TO BE USED AS A "SUPPLY." This is NOT a craft supply listing. If you wish to purchase our glass beads as a supply please check out using this listing:

All Sales Final, with the exception of special order fabrics that are found upon receipt of fabric that glass beads are not compatible. In that case, a full refund for the glass upgrade will be issued and traditional pellets will be used to fill your new blanket.

I'm so glad that I chose the glass beads. They feel like course sand and my blanket is very flat without the bulk of the poly beads.


Happy repeat customer here! Excellent product and prompt delivery!


If you worry about the bulk of a blanket, you will love the glass beads upgrade. The blanket is thin just like a throw so if I am willing to lug the weight around, I can actually fold it up nice and small in a suitcase. I can't stand being hot in bed and this blanket in flannel is the perfect choice over a summer weight quilt, stays in place all night and I am not hot.


I am so glad I did did he upgraded glass beads. Not bulky and much more comfortable than traditional plastic.


I always enjoy every interaction I have with Namaste. I would HIGHLY recommend her and her products!
