If that doesn't work, just search for "weighted therapy blanket" in Etsy and you will find her.

Good luck! I'd love to see it when it's done!!

We have a blanket much like the ones you linked to. We are trying to think off a way to have the weight with out the filler beads, they add a lot of bulk. We have a quit that my great grandmother made that is really heavy but we don't want to wear it out and it wouldn't with stand repeated washing.
