The outer shell of Qalm comes in two different materials, Lyocell and Micro-plush.
Both materials have similar characteristics being Odor free, antibacterial, breathable and durable. But most importantly both textiles are extremely soft, so soft that you can’t stop stroking it while wrapped in the blanket. When choosing your outer shell material we believe that how you use your Qalm will help you in making your decision.
If you sleep well at night but are struggling to relax properly after work, want a beautiful bedspread or blanket in your couch to give that super cozy feeling to your home we suggest the Micro-plush cover in Space or Lava gray, depending on the interior of your home.
If you for any other reason are thinking about a Qalm weighted blanket the Lyocell cover with its beautiful colors and sustainable material will help you fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. With less dye needed and with a tenth of the water to produce cotton this material is ideal for a low impact super soft weighted blanket. If for some reason your lyocell cover would end up in nature, it is 100% biodegradable!
No matter the material you decide on, you can always add an extra outer shell so that you can switch around and get both that beautiful bedspread and that perfect rest at night.

The inner blanket and the outer shell are both machine washable (30 degrees) and dryer safe for easy and convenient care.
