Jessyka's Minky Dreams Weighted Blankets, are filled with sand-like glass beads. To provide deep pressure stimulation without discomfort. The deep pressure from the weight, causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins naturally, to give the feeling of being calm and relaxed.
At the young age of 26, I became extremely ill and it took a year for the doctors to diagnose me with Fibromyalgia. So, I spent years trying to find a way to cope with my symptoms, without causing me more pain. Nothing but tons of medications, helped, and even they didn't. Then at age 33, I had my fourth and last child. She was different than my other three, and at the age of 4, was diagnosed as Autistic with Sensory Processing Disorder. She also has sleep issues, just like me.
I started researching things that can help her and kept coming across weighted blankets and products. Being a single disabled mom, I didn't have the money to buy any and no one would let me make payments. So, I decided I would try to make my own, and found out that I really loved sewing. That is when I created, Jessyka's Minky Dreams, naming it after my ASD daughter. I also had several ideas for other products. I needed the extra income and wanted to help other families like mine. I was also determined to try and make it affordable, so I made payment plans available.
It's my passion to help people, and I would love to help you and your loved ones with my beautiful creations. I feel God led me to this path and I put my heart and soul into each creation.
Polyester is made artificially and it is widely used in a variety of fabrics, including minky. Minky has a natural texture like animal fur, very soft and fluffy. Therefore, it is more comfortable than the cotton.
Weighted Blankets aren't for everyone, and aren't advised for anyone under age 3. Due to the fact that their bones are rapidly growing, fragile and they may not be able to freely move under the weight.
Weight for kids age 3 up to teens are to be no more than 10% of body weight, plus 1 to 2 pounds max.
Weight for adults are to be 10% of ideal body weight for your height and bone structure. Feel free to add a couple of pounds if you like a little more pressure. Or less if you prefer it a bit lighter.
