All products are 100% washer/dryer safe (as long as your machines can handle the weight)…with the possible exception of the stuffed animals.
The blankets are weighted with non-toxic poly beads. The lap pads and stuffed animals are weighted with new aquarium gravel. The weight is distributed evenly throughout the blankets and lap pads in sectioned off segments so that the weight does not shift with use.
All blankets are made with 100% cotton unless otherwise noted in the descriptions. These fabrics are comparable to high quality bed sheets or better. All fabrics have been pre-washed/pre-shrunk prior to sewing.
The weighted stuffed animals contain ‘bean bag’ type pouches of aquarium gravel inside. Some of the original stuffing is left in so that the animal still has its attractive form. The gravel is sewn into pouches so that if the stuffed animal breaks open for any reason, the gravel will not spill out.
