The Essential WB – 10lb Grey Pearl is one of our six most often ordered weighted blankets. Over ten years in business we have noted that this size and weight was perfect for a large number of our clients. A 40×60″ 10lb weighted blanket would work best for a child, senior who want a mid-weight blanket, or teens and adults who want a lighter weight blanket for sleeping or relaxing.
Clients who order a Hippo Hug weighted blanket love the comfort and design. AND unlike blankets weighted with pellets or glass beads, our blankets do not retain heat and can be used with your own bedding. Our proprietary disk system ensures an even distribution of weight, with minimal noise as you move throughout the night. You can feel the weights but they stay where we have put them and there is no shifting of weight and little to no sound associated with the weighting system.
Hippo Hug strives to be a sustainable brand. We operate under principles of the slow fashion movement – Quality Products; Environmentally Conscious Practices and Fairness for both the consumer and producer.
This means that every weighted item is manufactured in our Calgary shop using high quality, long lasting materials. We pay fair workers’ wages, provide benefits and flexible work hours. Our business model focuses largely on a pre-order model which means less material wastage as we make items to order. And, rather than discarding our off-cuts and scraps to the landfill, we creatively use the salvedge to make samples and smaller items.
Hippo Hug expects your personal use weighted blanket to last a lifetime! We use 100% new materials in all our blankets. While your blanket will experience minor wear and tear over time, the weights should not come loose from their individual pockets during the regular use of your blanket. If this happens please contact us for a warranty service. Cosmetic wear and tear damage can be fixed at the customer’s expense and, if your style changes, you can buy a new cover or we will work with you to recover your blanket.
Customers have found that they can significantly reduce the need to launder by using their blanket over a sheet or light quilt or by purchasing a cover. To launder: check with your washing machine manufacturer before cleaning. Hippo Hug is not responsible for any damage that may occur as a result of washing. Machine wash in cold water, do not over spin and lay flat to dry
