Quick Overview

In a complex world, the creators of BlanQuil are on a mission to leverage technology to help reduce stress, sleepiness, and health problems. The company manufactures a variety of sleep-centric products, including Egyptian cotton sheets, weighted sleep masks, and heated neck and shoulder wraps. Their flagship product is the BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket, designed to simulate Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation — also called Deep Pressure Therapy — or the calming feeling of being hugged. The weighted blanket can help soothe anxiety and reduce tossing and turning during the night, increasing your time in deep sleep and refreshing your sleep cycle.

The BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket is filled with eco-friendly, tiny glass beads within a poly-blend shell. The shell is sewn with 77 independent pockets to keep the glass pellets in place during the night. The Premium Weighted Blanket includes a soft, micro-plush duvet cover that can be removed to be washed and dried in the machine. The inner blanket is secured to the duvet cover with a system of eight ties. The microplush covers are available in a variety of colors, including grey, taupe, charcoal, and navy.

Beyond the BlanQuil Weighted Premium Blanket, the company offers a “Basic” version that does not include a removable duvet cover. BlanQuil also offers a model with a special Chill Cooling duvet cover designed specially for hot sleepers. The cooling duvet cover is crafted from a breathable fabric designed to absorb and dispel body heat while wicking away moisture. However, this review will focus on the company’s signature model, the BlanQuil Premium.

Inner Fill Material

Criteria

Weighted Blankets are filled with tons of small weighted beads surrounded by polyester padding/filling. These beads are of varying quality, usually made of plastic, glass, or nano-ceramic.

Rating

Good

What Testers Say

Inside the blanket are weighted, eco-friendly micro glass beads that provide good contouring and breathability. However the blanket is fastened within the duvet cover with 8 shoelaces, and we found the blanket tends to pool towards the middle a bit.

Rating

What Testers Say

As noted, we found the micro-plush duvet cover is adept at insulating and holding in body heat.

Category

Breathability

Criteria

Breathable weighted blankets retain less heat and will keep users from sleeping too hot. Breathability results from good airflow and moisture-wicking properties.

Rating

Good

What Testers Say

Although microplush may be inadequate at dispelling heat or wicking away moisture, the microplush duvet cover included in the BlanQuil Premium can be removed. Below, an inner shell of polyblend fabric offers better breathability. At the same time, the weighted glass bead fill promotes airflow.

What You Need to Know About the BlanQuil Weighted Blanket

We’ve summarized key specs regarding the BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket in the table below.

Product Name Inner Fill Material Outer Shell Material Weight Options Available Colors/Patterns Available
BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket Eco-friendly weighted glass beads; polyester fill Polyblend shell beneath removable microplush cover. 15 & 20 lbs. Grey, taupe, charcoal, navy

Construction

Measuring at 48” x 74” and weighing either 15 or 20 lbs, the BanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket is designed for a single user. The Premium Weighted Blanket is filled with eco-friendly, weighted glass pellets that are separated into 77 independent pockets to keep them held in place evenly across your body during the night.

The beads are encased in a polyblend shell beneath a microplush, removable duvet cover. Microplush is a soft, light fabric reminiscent of velvet. The material does not wick away moisture, but retains body heat and is machine washer & dryer-friendly. Microplush is also resistant to stains, odors, and mildew.

Sizing, Weight & Pricing

Although there are two weights available for the BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket, the size and pricing is the same for both models.

Size Weight Price
48” x 74” 15 lbs $169
48” x 74” 20 lbs $169

Cleaning

The BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket is protected by a removable, machine wash & and dryer-friendly duvet cover. To protect the blanket while minimizing dust and allergen build-up, the company recommends washing the removable outer duvet cover according to instructions:

After unzipping the outer cover and removing the inner blanket, the outer cover should be washed on a cool, gentle cycle with a small amount of liquid detergent. Do not wash with bleach or whitening agent.

After the cycle is through, you can tumble dry the cover on a cool setting. Remove the cover before it is completely dry and hang it up to allow to finish drying.

Although the inner weighted portion of the BlanQuil may be machine-washed on a gentle cycle on occasion, hand-washing is highly recommended to extend the life of the product. To do so, the company recommends washing the inner weighted blanket in a large tub using mild detergent or gentle bubble bath solution. After washing and ringing dry, hang the blanket in the sun.

The company also recommends regularly vacuuming the BlanQuil with a handheld attachment between cleaning cycles to reduce allergen build-up.

Return Policy & Warranty Information

Rather than a warranty, the BlanQuil Premium Weighted Blanket is protected by a 60-day return policy. After 10 to 14 days from receiving the product, you can submit a return request by contacting the company’s customer service team at [email protected].

Blankets must be sent back in their original packaging and customers are responsible for shipping costs. However, a printable, pre-paid return label may be provided upon request — this amount will be deducted from your refund. Refunds are only accepted in original packaging and without damage or signs of extreme use.

Shipping & Delivery

BlanQuil offers free standard shipping to destinations within the U.S. and Canada. However, patrons in Canada are responsible for any customs or duties taxes. Blankets should ship within two to three business days, and orders include a tracking number so you can check its status.
