Welcome to Sheltered Co.
We're so glad you're here! We make weighted blankets with intention and sincerity in the heart of Los Angeles. We believe that weighted blankets should deliver a sense of safety and comfort like a giant hug.
Sheltered Co. blankets are created in-house by our lovely blanket artists. They are hand-crocheted and use 40-70 yards of fabric, depending on the size and desired weight. Each blanket is made purely with deadstock fabric—no beads or fillers here, thank you very much! We like to say that each blanket is a work of art, unique and perfect in it's own way.
How it Works
We’re dedicated to shattering the stigma that weighted blankets are sterile, clinical, and only for those in hardship. Whether you're feeling anxious, in need of a peaceful time-out from the world, or just looking for a better night's sleep—we can help.
Weighted blankets provide soothing pressure to the body, which stimulates receptors in the skin to calm and regulate the nervous system. This triggers a release of serotonin and dopamine which aid in the regulation of emotional responses and reduces the stress hormone, cortisol. Designed to provide deep pressure when draped over the body, it gives comfort and security. Perfect for calming the "fight or flight" response of the body.
