What is a BlanQuil Weighted Blanket?
BlanQuil is a premium-grade, therapeutic weighted blanket that harnesses the power of Deep Touch Stimulation by gently distributing even pressure across your body. It creates an instant feeling of calm and relaxation while reducing stress and increasing serotonin. When used for sleeping, weighted blankets are also proven to reduce tossing and turning, allowing sustained periods in deeper, rejuvenating sleep cycles. Use of a BlanQuil mimics the familiar feeling of a good cuddle session, being hugged or held.
What do you use for the weight?
All BlanQuil weighted products now use eco-friendly, high-density glass micro-beads.
What is the right weight for me?
When selecting the weight of a BlanQuil, personal preference and mobility issues should always be considered first. After that, a general guideline many use is 8-15% of your body weight. If you would like help selecting the perfect weight please reach out to our experts by phone or chat. They are happy to help you with all considerations for model and weight options!
Will my entire order arrive together?
Orders of multiple products or quantities will ship independently. Inventory levels and fulfillment center locations can vary. If you only receive part of your order, don't worry - the rest will follow shortly!
Are BlanQuil weighted blankets hot?
By nature, all blankets will insulate and hold some body heat. This is great in colder months or climates, but what about when you want better sleep and the therapeutic benefits of Deep Touch Stimulation without extra heat?
BlanQuil’s got you covered! Here are our best BlanQuil tips for warm nights and warm sleepers:
- The original BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket includes a removable, machine washable micro-plush duvet system. The outer cover can be removed on warmer nights allowing you to use the weighted, inner portion alone. The inner blanket is well tailored and soft to the touch but do note that unlike the duvet, it is spot clean only.
- Perfect for spring and autumn, consider the BlanQuil Basic. Boasting a minimalist, one-piece design, the BlanQuil Basic does not include the removable duvet system and sleeps a bit cooler than the Premium version.
- For the warmest sleepers we recommend trying the BlanQuil Chill. The BlanQuil Chill utilizes our amazing cover that is noticeably cooler to the touch than traditional fabrics. This technology is widely considered to be the most advanced available of any cooling blanket on the market.
How long does it take to ship?
BlanQuils are currently shipping in 2-3 business days unless otherwise noted on the product page. Shipping confirmations with a tracking number will be sent to you once the item is shipped.
Are BlanQuils machine washable?
The duvet covers on the BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket and BlanQuil Chill are removable, machine washable and dryer friendly. The inner weighted portion is spot clean only.
The BlanQuil Basic can be machine washed on gentle cycle in cold water on occasion, but spot cleaning is recommended to ensure the longest life.
For cleaning information on other products please check the care label for more details.
Is there scientific consensus that weighted blankets help with stress, anxiety or other issues?
Due to the growing popularity of weighted blankets, there are more studies being conducted and more information being released all the time. While self-reported anecdotal evidence strongly indicates great results using BlanQuil and other weighted blankets, more study is needed before definitive conclusions can be reached. We do not make any claims of medical conditions being cured with use of our products and recommend you do your own research or try it for yourself to reach your own conclusions. Here are some links to recent studies.
Can I claim my BlanQuil through my insurance?
The BlanQuil is not currently HSA / FSA reimbursable.
Is BlanQuil available in any retail stores?
Yes! We are now in many retail stores nationwide. Visit our store locator page to find a store near you.
Can I order a new cover separately?
Presently the BlanQuil is only sold as a complete unit.
Where is BlanQuil made?
Our blankets are manufactured in China and ship from a number of fulfillment centers across the country.
Are there larger sizes of BlanQuils?
The BlanQuil is designed to be used individually to maximize its benefits and is perfectly balanced for one person. While we'd love to make a larger bedspread size, the required weight to remain effective would result in a blanket very difficult to move or ship. Our recommendation for couples or larger beds is purchasing a set of two. This also will prevent your partner from stealing yours!
Does the weight transfer or gather in one spot?
The BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket and the BlanQuil Chill are engineered in two parts comprised of a removable, machine washable duvet and an inner weighted blanket. Like any duvet and blanket system, the pieces move independently and shifting can happen. For this reason, we have designed the BlanQuil system to include 8 strong ties that will help keep the duvet and blanket connected and allow you to readjust when needed.
To troubleshoot unusual bunching or shifting, simply unzip the outer cover and check that all ties are secured.
Can I use my blanket with my pets or small children?
We recommend never placing a weighted blanket on anyone who is unable to adjust it if they are uncomfortable, may become trapped, or is unable to clearly communicate their wishes. Use cautious judgment at all times.
Can I return an item that was part of a BOGO, multiple item discount or free gift?
Yes, the refund would be adjusted to reflect the full price of kept items and the promotional price of returned items.
