I've waited a few months since receiving the blanket to review it because I wanted to really get an impression of it and be sure no beads would leak (had a bad experience with a cheaper blanket that really ticked me off) and so far I am satisfied. I thought I would be cheap and get the 15lb blanket even though I'm 190lbs, but in hindsight I would have done well to follow the advice of manufacturers and get the 20lb blanket. The blanket just barely covers the top of my queen sized mattress, so it doesn't completely cover my 6'3" tall frame, but I sleep with a light sheet between the blanket and me which keeps my feet covered while my shoulders are snug under the blanket.
Blanket is cool to sleep under even in the Florida summer, the pockets sewn in keep the whole blanket weighted, and the loops for a duvet cover are a nice touch.
A bigger, heaver blanket would have suited me better than the 15lb queen I got, but I can't complain at all about the quality, feel, and sleep I get with this blanket, especially at this price point.
I love this blanket! The fabric is smooth and cool to the touch. It feels like a high quality cotton. I have been sleeping great since I started using it.
Workmanship is outstanding! I had been looking at weighted blankets at BB&B and didnt think much of them but after reading reviews on this one and seeing their return policy I decided to give it a try. I love it, I love the tiny glass beads instead of oversized plastic ones. Its a delight to sleep with! 2nd review- It's very hard to keep on the bed!
Now THAT was a good nights sleep! Lookin' forward to many more.
I received my Baloo Weighted blanket on Tuesday. It arrived in great condition with a beautiful, thoughtful note from the founder, Elizabeth Grojean. I was worried when ordering that I would not find the quality of the fabric used to equal my fine, Italian bedding by Pratesi, but I was not disappointed. The Shell fabric and border were lovely. I could not wait to fall asleep that night as I have had problems sleeping for quite sometime. I have sleep apnea and my cpap machine wakes me up. I have had three wonderful nights of sleep, and see no reason why I won't continue to appreciate the care that has gone into creating the Baloo Weighted Blanket. Thank you Elizabeth Grojean and thank you for the free download of the Tibetan and crystal singing bowls restorative sound. I also appreciated your contribution to The Pajama Program benefiting children living in homeless shelters. Sincerely, Linda Gintel
