Baloo Weighted Comforter
The Baloo weighted comforter molds to your body like a gentle hug, helping the mind and body to calm for a deeper sleep. Because it doesn’t trap heat, it’s cool enough to use year-round in all climates. Draping over the sides of the bed like traditional bedding, the beauty of our comforter is that it’s weighted with glass microbeads only where it counts: in the center, where it covers the top of the bed, rather than all the way to the edge. This not only feels more comfortable, but it also makes it lighter and easier to care for.
Natural materials only: 100% premium cotton outer fabric and inner batting, chosen for its softness, breathability, and durability. Glass microbead fill. Cool enough for all climates.
Full/Queen Comforter (90x90 in.): Weighted area 15 lbs (19 lbs actual), or 20 lbs (24 lbs actual).
King Comforter (92x108 in.): Weighted area 25 lbs (29 lbs actual).
Machine wash cold on gentle cycle; tumble dry low. We recommend using a commercial machine because of the larger size. Baloo blankets dry surprisingly quickly, so we suggest checking it after 15-20 minutes in the dryer.
Baloo's weighted blankets are designed to apply a gentle, even weight to the body, simulating the effects of Deep Pressure Touch. This has been shown to help encourage a natural, calming effect which soothes and supports deeper, sounder sleep. These effects have been studied and published in the journal Occupational Therapy in Mental Health, the Journal of Complementary Medicine, and several others.
