  2. Match the "B" label on the core with the corner of the duvet opposite the zipper opening end
  3. Work your way around, looping the duvet ties through the core loops
  4. At this point, everything should be looped except for the zipper end
  5. Now it's showtime. Re-invert the duvet so it's right side out and the core is now inside the duvet
  6. Complete the tie-loops at the zipper end and zip up.
  7. Pat yourself on the back and enjoy!

How heavy should a weighted blanket be? 
How blissed out are you ready to be? Really, it is a matter of personal preference.

What is it made of?
Our bestselling Original Stretch is an all-season blanket made of a specially-formulated blend of 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex that is thin to the touch while ultra-dense and temperature regulating so you don’t get too hot or too cold. It’s like the yoga pants of blankets.   

How big is it? 
Big Blankets are the largest blankets you can buy. No bull. Big Blankets are 4x the size of an average throw blanket (a measly 50” x 60”) and larger than a king-size comforter (a paltry 104” x 92”). Pff.

Original Stretchblankets are each a 10' x 10' (10 feet by 10 feet) blanket. In other words, 120" x 120" (120 inches by 120 inches) blanket. Or, if you prefer, a 100-square foot blanket. 

How much does it weigh?
With a 10’ x 10’ blanket, it naturally carries some weight. The Original Stretch™ weights in at 11 pounds.

Unfortunately that hasn't been possible to-date — but we're working on it! 

Currently the patterned Original Stretch™ blanket has 1 seam down the center. The solid Original Stretch™ blanket has 2 seams set 2-feet from the left and right edges of the blanket so it aligns with the edges of a king size bed.

How do I fold my Original Stretch™ Big Blanket?
It’s a matter of personal preference. Some people like to simply toss their Big Blanket in a basket (that’s simple). Some people never unwrap themselves and it becomes attached to their body (that’s commitment). If you’d like to fold your Big Blanket, we suggest:

  1. Lay the blanket flat 
  2. Fold the left edge and right edge inward so they meet in the center 
  3. Fold the blanket in half again so it is now four layers
  4. At this stage, you have one long 10’ strip of blanket that you can roll or simply fold 
  5. Voila!
