|BLANKET WEIGHT RECOMMENDATIONS
|IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ASK YOUR O.T. FOR FINAL WEIGHT ADVICE
IN MOST CASES, THE GENERAL ADVISE IS THAT WEIGHT SHOULD BE NO MORE THAN 10 % OF THE WEIGHT
OF THE USER. YOU CAN ADD A POUND FOR BLANKET FOOTAGE THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE OVER THE
CHILD. FOLLOWING ARE SOME EXAMPLES:
A 50 POUND CHILD MAY NEED 5 POUNDS PLUS ONE POUND FOR BLANKET FOOTAGE
75 POUND CHILD MAY NEED 7 AND 1/2 POUNDS PLUS ONE POUND FOR BLANKET FOOTAGE.
A YOUNG ADULT OF 140 POUNDS MAY NEED 14 POUNDS PLUS 1 POUND FOR BLANKET FOOTAGE. ANY
MORE WEIGHT THAN THAT IS TOO UNCOMFORTABLE FOR ANY SIZE ADULT.
IN LAP PADS & VESTS THE WEIGHT IS MORE CONCENTRATED AND ONLY 8% OR LESS OF THE USERS
WEIGHT IS USUALLY RECOMMENDED.
NEVER PLACE WEIGHTED GEAR OVER THE FACE OR USE DOUBLED. NEVER USE WEIGHTED GEAR TO
CONFINE OR RESTRICT MOVEMENT. NEVER USE WEIGHTED GEAR WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISION. SALT OF
THE EARTH WEIGHTED GEAR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY HARM ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF THEIR

Is my credit and personal information secure on this site?
Yes. Salt of the Earth Weighted Gear does not share your information with anyone or even store it.

How do I select the print I want?
When you purchase from the buy a blanket page (or the buy a vest ...etc...) there will be a place to type in
the print number and print description.
What kind of fabrics do you use?
Our products are made with quality 100% cotton print top and two 100% cotton inner layers. The blanket backs are quality
poly/cotton blend in a corresponding solid color. We use this fabric for it's smooth hand. (Some of the fabrics on the
SPECIALTY FABRICS PAGE are not 100% cotton.)
Is the fine grade river stone safe?
Yes. You may have read on another site that it is porous, that it won't dry, that it is sharp and will wear out the blanket, that
it will mold and other things. With all due respect to the author of that site, none of this is true. Fine grade river stone is
just that. It is natural, clean, smooth and certainly not porous. But if you prefer polybead, it is a good product too and we
will use it at your request.
How do I decide how much weight to have put into an item?
We at Salt Of The Earth Weighted Gear are not Professional Occupational Therapists. The advice we offer is based on
recommendations offered by most O.T.s but not all.
It is important that you get the recommendation of your own OT.
There are general guides for blanket weight can be found on the Buy a Blanket page here.
There are general guides for vest weight is on the Buy a Vest page here.
How do I decide on the size for a blanket?
A weighted blanket should at least reach from the chin to a few inches past the toes.
Because the weight is embedded in the body area of the blanket, a small child can use a size A, B, C, CXL, or D.
If the blanket will be carried to different places, like in the car and in the family room,
the smallest size that fits the user is recommended.
If the blanket will always stay on the bed, larger sizes are recommended.
See blanket size chart here
How do I decide on the size for a weighted vest?
Please use the size charts on the vest page and measure carefully.
The vest will be adjustable by about 2 inches on each side.
What is your return policy?
If your order is defective or is not the size,weight, print or fill that you ordered, return it in unused condition within 30 days
