INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERING:
1. Once you have decided that this is exactly the gift that you have been searching for, we need your help in making this gift possible. YOU WILL HAVE TO VISIT THIS LINK: https://www.shutterfly.com/s/photo-blanket/ and design the photo blanket that you will want us to use. You will ALSO need to CHECKOUT/PAY and SHIP this blanket to PO Box 182, Walland TN 37886.
-You MUST select the 50x60 size on Shutterfly
-You MUST select either the FLEECE -OR- PLUSH FLEECE option. Sherpa cannot be run through our industrial machines and you won't feel it anyway due to the construction of the weighted blanket.
**IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH THIS ORDER FROM THE LINK PROVIDED THEN WE WILL BE UNABLE TO FILL YOUR ORDER AND WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE HERE ON ETSY.**
2. Once we receive the order from the link we will begin the process of making it into a weighted blanket. Please note, even if you receive delivery confirmation from shutterfly that the fabric was delivered to our PO Box that does not indicate that we have received it at that time. We travel to our PO Box 2 times per week. Also note that even if you get delivery confirmation, that does not mean that your weighted blanket will be shipped to you that day, or the even within the next few days. Our timeline for completing your order will be 1 to 2 weeks after we receive your order from shutterfly.
3. Your photo blanket from shutterfly will be deconstructed and made in to a weighted blanket, we ask that you purchase the 50x60 size because we need to cut it down and account for seam allowances in the sewing process. End size many vary due to shutterfly's printing process. In our experience sometimes their end result isn't the 50x60 size so we need to adjust accordingly. Most times your end resulting product will be close to the 60 inch length, but we simply cannot make a guarantee since the printing process is out of our control, which is also why we only charge for the manufacturing of a 40x50 end size blanket.
4. When placing your order here, please place the ORDER NUMBER from shutterfly in your order here with us, it helps us keep track of blankets and ensures that you receive the correct one. ALSO MESSAGE US A SCREEN SHOT OF WHAT YOU DESIGNED AND ORDERED so we may double check for accuracy upon our shipment of the final product.
5. Select your backing fabric color. We use 100% WOVEN COTTON fabric for the back of the blanket.
By purchasing this item from us you are being charged for materials for the back of the weighted blanket, weighted fill, and labor. Shipping is free.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of this item it is IMPERATIVE that we have communication from you. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours ordering and we contact you about your photos, your processing times may be extended as they are based on ordering your fabric within 2 days (max) of receiving your order.
**IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH THIS ORDER FROM THE LINK PROVIDED THEN WE WILL BE UNABLE TO FILL YOUR ORDER AND WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE HERE ON ETSY.**
This is a sensory weighted blanket. The blanket comes in 5 to 15 pounds and measurements are in inches.
The blanket is reinforced around all the sides. Individual sections for this listing are particularly large due to the nature of the photographs and how the photos are printed onto the fabric. We are unable to guarantee that a stitch line will not go through a face or other object on the photos. We line and sew by the solid color backing, not the photo side. Up-close pictures are provided in the listing to show that we DO have to sew through the photos to create an evenly weighted blanket. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask PRIOR to ordering. Once your blanket is ordered we begin processing and NO REFUNDS or CANCELLATIONS will be given for ANY reason.
This is filled with non toxic Mil 1 spec glass beads 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.

I ordered this blanket as a surprise for a dear former coach who is going through chemo, and she just loves it. It meant so much to us to be able to share our cross country memories on the blanket. Communication was excellent and the seller went all out to make sure the layout and the blanket were perfect. Def worth it! Couldn’t be happier with the end result ❤️
