Qalm Blankets are more than just a therapeutic remedy. They have been wonderfully designed, as a soft blanket that can be used comfortably every day of the year.
How Heavy should my blanket be?
It is a personal preference but we strongly recommend that you decide on a weight between 7-13% of your full bodyweight. If you want additional pressure you can always fold the blanket on top of you to get the full weight of it.
I often feel too hot while using normal blankets. How does this product cope with heat distribution?
Our weighted blankets are suitable for year-round use. All products include a warm outer shell for the winter season along with a breathable base layer for the summer season.
Our recommendation is to add a Lyocell Cover in your order and change the outer shell for the warmer periods so that you still can enjoy all the benefits of your weighted blanket.

Will it work even when shared between couples?
We strongly recommend purchasing two blankets as the therapeutic tool which is a weighted blanket is individually selected and sharing it will diminish the effects.

How do I wash my blanket?
Our Qalm blanket consists of two parts: the soft cover shell and the inner weighted blanket. Both can be washed in the washing machine at 30 ° C. First, check that the weight of the gravity blanket® does not exceed the weight capacity of the washing machine drum. It is usually sufficient if you only wash the soft cover.
