Can I share my blanket with someone ?
The use of a weighted blanket is often a personal therapeutic experience. Therefore, sharing it with someone else who has a different body size and unique sleep pattern may interfere with your therapeutic experience.We strongly recommend that you purchase two blankets in case you plan to share it with your partner. This will allow both of you to enjoy the benefits of the product. However, we do offer sizes to accommodate two people.
Indeed, Queen and King sizes are made to be shared both for height and weight. To share a blanket, choose a blanket that is about 10% of your weight and your sleeping partner's weight.
Ex. You weigh 130 pounds and your partner weighs 170 pounds. Choose the 30-pound "Queen" or "King" blanket because your half of the blanket will weigh about 15 pounds.
If your weight varies considerably, consider buying two Twin size blankets for a more personalized and optimal sleeping experience.
Will the Better Sleep blanket be warm enough in the winter? Will it be too warm in the summer ?
The fabric of our weighted blankets breathes very easily, so the temperature under the blanket is always pleasant.
Better Sleep covers have several features that prevent your body from overheating. They are made from premium quality bamboo, which is soft and cool on your skin, and they have a remarkable insulating feature that regulates your body temperature. The bamboo fabric is more breathable to allow for better air circulation and is incredibly cool on your skin.
Weighted blankets and Better Sleep covers are designed for all seasons.
The blanket effectively relaxes the body, but many people worry about hot flashes or other common ailments. The summer season is another major concern because of its high temperatures.
One of the main advantages of weighted blankets is that they don't overheat despite being heavier than normal blankets. Even if it's hot outside or if you are one of those who tend to overheat, a weighted blanket offers unparalleled comfort. Our blankets are made of a soft, durable and washable fabric.
How do I wash my new blanket ?
Usually, our Better Sleep weighted blankets have two parts:
The cover of the blanket and the weighted blanket itself.
Both can be washed in the machine, in cold water and in gentle mode with a small amount of liquid detergent. First, check that the weight of the weighted blanket does not exceed the weight capacity of your washing machine. In general, washing the blanket cover is enough. Please do not use a tumble dryer as this may damage the fabric. Please put it to dry flat.
Here are a few tips to take care of your Better Sleep blanket:
CLEAN STAINS FIRST
Use a warm soapy cloth to remove stains on the weighted blanket.
WASH YOUR BLANKET IN THE COLD RINSE CYCLE
Machine wash your blanket, alone, so that nothing can get caught in the blanket and damage it. Use the cold rinse cycle instead of a spin cycle.
The best option is to air dry your blanket in the sun or in front of a window.
