Why do they cost so much? This is a very common question for any luxury product. TRUBlanket is the World's Premier Weighted Blanket for the price of some of the other competitors' blankets. Yes, there are cheaper options out there, but they are both cheaper in construction and materials. The TRUBlanket features luxurious 400 thread count cotton, glass beads instead of plastic, extra ties to keep it anchored, and beautiful embroidery, just to name a few. If you could buy a brand new Lexus with all the bells and whistles for the price of a Corolla, would you do it? Of course you would!
Does it have a warranty? It does not have a warranty. The most destructive forces tend to be sunlight and liquids. Avoid exposing the blanket to anything damaging long term, especially light and spills. However, if it does get dirty, you can wash both the cover and the inside without worries.
Do they come in any other colors? Currently we only have the gray color, but more colors are on the horizon!
Do they come in any other sizes? Yes, we have both a 15 pound and 20 pound weight. As far as dimensions, 60x80 inches is the optimal size for an adult or a child. It's the same as the top of a Queen sized mattress.
Should I buy the 20 pound blanket or the 15? A weighted blanket works best when matched with about 10 percent of your body weight, plus or minus to adjust for your comfort level. Our most popular TRUBlanket is 15 pounds. We recommend that children use the smaller size.
What do you do if the beads clump up? This can sometimes happen with normal use. There's an easy fix, though - shake it out to redistribute the beads. It works best with two people holding it by the four corners. Pretend you're getting ants or crumbs off of your picnic blanket. Continue until the blanket is back to normal.
Can I wash the cover (duvet)? How about the weighted inner blanket?Yes and yes! You can wash the duvet cover, there are washing instrustions packaged with each blanket. You can even wash the inside, You would just want to use a commercial washer due to the fact that it can be 15 or 20 pounds (not including the weight of water).
Where are TRUBlankets made? They are made in China, but not because of typical stereotypes of Chinese goods being cheapest or most convenient. While we were looking for a company to make the world's premier weighted blanket, we found our manufacturer at a German trade show. They were based out of China, but most of their work was being sent to Germany. Due to the quality we saw on display, we decided to follow the lead of those German vendors and give this company a try. After many trial runs and prototypes, we were finally satisfied that the TRUBlanket would be the premier blanket in the world.
Is it bad to sleep with a weighted blanket on all night?
It's completely safe and appropriate. Many of our customers use the TRUBlanket all night long. The deep pressure stimulation helps your body to fall asleep faster by increasing the melatonin and serotonin in your body. This means you will have help falling asleep quickly, and also staying asleep longer. Many TRUBlanket owners find it helpful to use on the couch to help them prepare for bed. You can use it all night or just 20 minutes before bed to give you that melatonin boost.
Can children use TRUBlankets? Many children benefit from weighted blanket usage. They are especially helpful for children with sensory or anxiety issues and autism. However, we recommend using best judgement when young children are using the TRUblanket. The TRUblanket is a weighted blanket, which could make it difficult for children under a certain size to breathe appropriately. We recommend you do not use the TRUBlanket on an infant, especially unattended.
