Weighted blankets are a personal use blanket, and not designed as a bed spread. The Lotus Blanket is designed to fit over the individual using the blanket. Ideally the blanket will cover from your chin to over your feet. Having the blanket any larger would be wasting the blanket on the bed.
My blanket is not evenly distributed.
The Lotus blanket is made up of an inner blanket (which is the weighted part), and the cover. The inner blanket is held in place inside the cover using internal ties.
If you find your weighted blanket is bunching up inside the cover, lay your blanket flat and retie the internal ties tightly. These will help to hold the blanket in place inside the cover.
How do I care for my Lotus Blanket?
The Lotus Blankets are machine or hand washable.
To wash your Lotus Blanket first remove the cover. The inner blanket and cover should be washed separately.
Cold wash only. We recommend using only gentle detergents, DO NOT add fabric softeners.
If Machine washing check the maximum load weight of your washing machine before washing the inner blanket.
Once washed lay the inner blanket flat to dry. This will ensure the glass beads dry evenly in the inner fleece and wont clump up. Flip and shake the blanket every few hours while drying (ensure you are holding the corners and the inner blanket when doing this so the ties are supported)
Although the Lotus Blankets are washable, we recommend washing them only when needed.
What are the dimensions of the Lotus Mat and Pillow?
The Lotus Mat is 68cm x 38cm when laid out flat. Folded for storage the Mat measures approx 35cm x 38cm and 10cm high.
The Lotus Pillow is 24cm x 35cm.
Are the Lotus Mat and Pillow washable?
We recommend handwashing your Lotus Mat and Pillow only.
To wash your Mat or Pillow, simply remove the cover, and gently handwash using a gentle detergent and cold water. Lay your cover to dry naturally.
Alternatively they can both be spot cleaned with a damp cloth.
The coconut fibre inner mat and the buckwheat inner pillow should not be washed.
