Caring for Your Vegetable-Dyed Weighted Blanket

Baloo's Weighted Blankets are dyed with 100% natural plant-based materials, using elements sourced directly from nature. One of the qualities of natural dyes is that they change over time.

  • Some color change and fading with use & washing is normal and to be expected, as a natural characteristic of the vegetable dyes used.
  • For the first few washes, please wash on its own, using a gentle detergent and cold water, to help preserve the natural color. After the first few washes, launder with similar colors.
  • Dry with low heat. Our blankets dry surprising quickly, so check on them after 15-20 minutes so as to not overheat.
  • The use of spot stain treatments may alter the dye color. For stains, try soaking the blanket in cool water with some gentle detergent added, before washing.
