Yorkville Blankets are machine washable but we highly recommend using a duvet cover for frequent use. The weight of the blankets are often too heavy for non-industrial washing machines.
How to Wash Your Weighted Blanket
If you do prefer washing your weighted blanket you can wash on cold with mild detergent, DO NOT BLEACH. Some of the color will fade with washing depending on cycle and detergent used. It is recommended you wash the blanket by itself at least for initial cycle. Ensure to rinse well and air dry or tumble dry low.
Washable Weighted Blanket Cover
We also offer covers for your weighted blanket so you do not need to wash as you would without a cover with frequent use. The cover is made to be easily machine washable.
The slip-on duvet cover is easy to put on and take off, allowing for you to cover for frequent use but still remove if displaying the blanket. The weight of the blankets are often too heavy for non-industrial washing machines and less washing will make your blanket stay softer longer!
