What are Kawaii Blankets weighted blankets made out of?

Our weighted blankets are made out of 100% knitted polyester outside, with a 5% polyester/95% eco-recycled polyester filling. Our filling ensures the weight of the blanket is evenly distributed for the best-weighted blanket experience.

How do I wash my weighted blanket?

Step 1: Spot-treat any stains before washing. 

Step 2: 

  • Smaller Machines: If you have a smaller washing machine or a top load washer with an agitator (the center rod that moves clothes around), then we highly recommend using a laundry bag to wash your weighted blanket. 

  • Larger Machines: If your washer does not have an agitator, we still recommend using a laundry bag, however, it is not required. 

Step 3: Use a mild detergent on a gentle cycle. Do not bleach. 

Step 4: We recommend air drying on a drying rack, hanging flat and not from the top down, in order not to stretch out your blanket. You can also use your dryer on low heat. Since weighted blankets are heavy, expect the drying process to take a little longer.

What are the weighted blanket size options?

Currently, we offer our weighted blankets in 40” x 60” at 10 lbs, which is the equivalent of a full-size blanket. This size is ideal for cuddling on the couch or in your favorite corner of your house. It can also be used for solo napping or snoozing.  We will be offering more sizes, weights, and colors in the future!

Are weighted blankets hot? 

Not at all! Kawaii Blankets originate in the desert, so it was important (~essential~) for us to create a blanket that is heavy while still being very breathable. The spaced-out thick woven design and breathable fabric allow you to use your Kawaii Blanket in the heat of summer without feeling too warm.

What are the benefits of weighted blankets?

There are many benefits to using a weighted blanket, such as:
