What is a Weighted Blanket?
BlanQuil is a premium-grade, therapeutic weighted blanket that harnesses the power of deep touch stimulation to gently distribute deep pressure across your body. Engineered to be around 8-15% of your body weight. When under the blanket, it gives us that great feeling of being hugged or cuddled.
What is the right weight for me?
For adults between 100-140lbs, we suggest the 15lb. For anything more we suggest the 20lb. If you prefer tight bear hugs to regular ol' hugs - go with the 20lb Blanquil. If you weigh under 140lbs and prefer regular ol' hugs - go with the 15lb Blanquil.
Is this going to be too hot in the Summer?
Blanket materials are breathable and you can use the inner blanket on its own (without the cover) in the summer months as it is designed for weight, not warmth.
Blanquil provides the same amount of heat as the comforter that's on your bed right now - no more, no less. If you sleep with the AC on, you'll have no problem using Blanquil™ in the Summer. A lot of Blanquil™ fans have reported success using cooling pads, as well.
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.
Is your blanket machine washable?
Yes, the quilted outer layer is washable
Is there any scientific evidence that BlanQuil Blanket helps with stress, anxiety or other problems?
This is a hard question because although a lot of studies have shown positive results, we understand that different people are unique and will see entirely different results and it is very possible that BlanQuil does not show any significant improvement in some individuals. Also, it is not a medical cure for any condition and we do not claim any particular results or outcome. With that said, please take a look at the following links to understand what research has been done in this field. We hope that it will help you make up your own mind regarding this matter.
Can I claim my BlanQuil through my insurance?
The BlanQuil is not currently HSA / FSA reimbursable
Do you plan to offer new sizes, colors or features in the near future?
Yes for sure! We will be featuring new colors throughout the year and will have more add on's to come. Stay tuned!
Do you have a store where I can see the BlanQuil in person?
We are currently only online but are looking to expand in retail locations very soon. Please subscribe to our mailing list and you will be kept up to date on when this happens.
Is there a specific way to use my BlanQuil?
Not at all! We encourage you to find what method works for you. You can use it to lounge on the couch or get a solid nights sleep in bed.
Can I just order a new cover separately?
Unfortunately, no. The BlanQuil is 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.
Can the BlanQuil be used to between 2 people or work as a bed spread?
The BlanQuil is meant to be used individually to maximize its benefits. It is sized for 1 person as any bigger would result in much of the weight being wasted on empty parts of the bed.
Does the weight transfer or gather in one spot?
No, the inner layer is tied to the outer cover on the corners and sides.
Can I use my blanket with my pets or small children?
We want your pets and children to stay safe. Due to the weight of the blanket, we suggest using caution with them.
