About the Blankets
Hippo Hug weighted blankets are different than any others you will find on the market. We use a unique and proprietary weighting system that involves specially designed disks so that the blanket has a low profile and doesn’t look any different than a regular quilt.
What are the weighted disks? They are a ceramic coated metal disk.
Unfortunately, to allow for perfect distribution of weight and make it so the weight does not shift as you move, weights are not removable. But the blankets are still fully washable. Spot cleaning is recommended first and many people choose to use their weighted blanket over a sheet or lighter blanket to reduce cleaning. If it does require a more thorough clean they can be machine washed according to instructions. Like anything, especially something of significant weight, it does increase wear and tear to the weighted blanket and reduce its overall lifespan.
