The Baloo Weighted Blanket is an eco-friendly, luxury blanket made with soft premium cotton and lead-free glass microbeads. The Baloo Blanket utilizes deep pressure stimulation to soothe the nervous system, increase serotonin production and alleviate stress and anxiety. The Baloo Blanket is particularly effective for anxiety, stress, trouble falling asleep, autism and ADHD. Furthermore, deep pressure stimulation has also been known to relieve pain.

In comparison to other weighted blankets, Baloo uses geometrically shaped grids to keep the beads from pooling rather than a square grid pattern. In further contrast to most weighted blankets, the Baloo Blanket is machine-washable and dryable. Due to the glass beads, most weighted blankets need to be hand-washed, but the Baloo is made of sturdy cotton and has a cotton lining and polyester batting, which is why it can go in a machine.

Baloo recommends that users choose a blanket that is 8 to 12 percent of their body weight. However, if someone falls in the middle of the range, Baloo suggests considering several factors before making a decision. They recommend choosing the 15 lb blanket if the user is a side sleeper or if they have joint pain, especially in their knees, hips, or back. If however, they are a healthy adult who sleeps on their front or back, then the 20 lb blanket is recommended.

Baloo is committed to sustainable, healthy, and conscious living. They are in the process of phasing out all the plastic in their packaging and replacing it with reusable dust bags.  All of Baloo’s products are vegan certified by the Vegan Awareness Foundation.

Options

The Baloo Blanket comes in several different variants:

Throw Size/Twin, 42” x 72”, 12 lbs

Queen/Full Fit, 60” x 80”, 15 or 20 lbs

King Fit, 80” x 87 “, 25 lbs

The weighted blanket is only available in white and does not include duvet covers. Duvet covers can be purchased separately. Duvet covers are available in several colors: Blush Pink, Oatmeal, Navy, Dove Grey, White, and Charcoal.

Baloo also offers standard French linen pillowcase sets and king French linen pillowcase sets in matching colors to the duvet covers. Additionally, customers can purchase a Sleep Stone Mask.
