Frequently Asked Questions
ARE WEIGHTED BLANKETS HOT?
Heavy does not mean hot, when you choose a weighted blanket with breathable fabrics. Baloo uses soft, premium cotton, designed to be cool and breathable for year-round use in all climates. The weight comes from glass micro-beads which are not heat trapping.
We've heard from many customers, including those experiencing hot flashes and hot sleepers, that the blanket was not too hot and helped with better sleep.

WHICH BLANKET IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The general guide is to choose a blanket that's 8 to 12 percent of your body weight. If you fall in the middle of the range, there are a few factors to consider. Choose the 15 lb if you usually sleep on your side, or have joint pain, especially in your knees, hips, or back. Choose the 20 lb weight if you are a healthy adult who usually sleeps on their front or back.
The 12 lb Throw size/Twin blanket feels very similar in weight to the 15 lb blanket - due to its smaller size the weight is more concentrated on the body.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN MY WEIGHTED BLANKET OR DUVET?
Our weighted blankets are safe for the washing machine and dryer. We recommend using cold water on the gentle cycle with whites only, and drying on low heat. Please wash one blanket at a time. The blankets will dry surprisingly quickly, so they don't need a long dryer cycle (check on them after 20 minutes). For best results do not dry clean or iron.
King size blankets weighing 25 lbs are machine washable, but we recommend taking them to a commercial laundromat due to their heavier weight.
Linen duvet covers are machine washable on cold and dryer safe. These premium 100% French linen duvets will become softer and softer with every wash.
