What should I look for when buying a weighted blanket?

The first step in buying a weighted blanket is determining the right weight for you. The general wisdom is to pick one that's 10 percent of your bodyweight. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you'd get a 15-pound blanket. If you are closer to 200 pounds, a 20-pound blanket is a good fit, and so on.
