Sleep is personal. While many people notice a positive difference immediately, it can take a few nights for others to get accustomed to sleeping under the additional weight. We like using the fleece side while relaxing but sleep with the Merino wool side against us to take advantage of wool's temperature-regulating qualities.
Weighted blankets are designed for individuals. If the blanket is too large our experience is it may slip off the bed and it may add more weight than is needed for one person. The blanket also works well as a throw beyond the bedroom.
The duvet cover may easily be removed and washed. Because the insert is filled with shredded denim it is also washable. We encourage checking your machines capacity, using several dry cycles and doing so only when needed.
