Baloo Weighted Blanket
September 20, 2022
This well-balanced, crisp, quilt-like blanket holds its own on a well-dressed bed, and it can go in the washer and dryer. The linen duvet cover, sold separately, is gorgeous—but it’s pricey, and the buttons could be better reinforced.
The cotton cover of the Baloo Weighted Blanket feels sturdy, soft, and smooth. Like most weighted blankets, this one gets its poundage from small glass microbeads sewn into “pockets.” But rather than rows of 5-inch-or-so squares, the Baloo’s pockets are a mix of three geometric shapes, including smaller squares that keep the beads from pooling. The result is a crisp, smart-looking weighted blanket that looks almost like a quilt.
