Our recommendation is to select a blanket weight that is around 10% of the intended user’s body weight, unless you strongly feel you want something heavier or lighter. If you are in between sizes, we recommend selecting the lower of the two weights as the typical customer exchange is for a blanket of a lower weight. For example, if you weigh 80 kgs, you should choose a blanket that weights 7-10 kgs.
However, this is only a recommendation, and it´s up to every individual what weight s/he prefers. Some people prefer heavier blankets.
Anyone who wants to have a better quality of sleep can use a weighted blanket.
If you are concerned with the someone's ability to remove the blanket on their own without assistance, we do not recommend letting them using the blanket without supervision and putting it away and out of reach when you are not home.
The Polar Night blankets should not be used by children under five years old or by any individual or pet that weigh less than 22 kgs due to potential suffocation or choking hazard.
We are all different and have different needs. Many of our customers use their Polar Night blankets just like an ordinary comforters in bed, while others use it in the sofa to relax for a while in front of the TV.
We use two types of fabric materials in our blankets: 100% premium cotton and microfiber. Both fabrics are certified by the OEKO-TEX® 100 Standard. Weighted filling in our products is made of OEKO-TEX® Certified Non-Toxic and lead-free micro glass beads.
Our cotton duvet covers are made of 100% premium soft cotton that is OEKO-TEX® Certified. Bamboo duvet covers are made of 100% natural bamboo viscose and the Comfort and Deluxe Comfort duvet covers are made of 100% polyester. All our fabrics are certified by the OEKO-TEX® 100 Standard so you can be sure our products are clean and safe, and made with soft premium fabrics that are cool and breathable for year-round use.
In the case of normal use, there are no risks in using a weighted blanket. To be on the safe side, we have nevertheless chosen to issue certain warnings. We recommend that you consult your doctor before you start using a weighted blanket if you for example have weak lung capacity or weakened muscles; or if the intended user is a child under the age of 5.
We haven´t found any reports that a weighted blanket would be dangerous for pregnant women, but once again, consult your doctor before you start using a weight blanket if you feel insecure about what to do.
Weighted blankets and duvet covers are all machine washable, but respect the washing machine's weight limits. We therefore recommend hand washing for this reason, as not all washing machines can withstand the weight of the blankets. If you decide to wash the weighted blanket in the machine, first remove the duvet cover and wash the blanket alone in the machine with lukewarm water without spinning. Let the blanket dry on a level or hanging surface. Weighted blanket is also possible to dry clean. Duvet covers can be machine washed in lukewarm water and spin dry.

- Choice of exchange or refund
Be advised that returns must be submitted within 30 days of delivery, the return item must be undamaged (new condition), and customers are responsible for all return shipping charges and packaging.
The original packaging (cardboard box + plastic case) is a non-negotiable. We cannot accept your return without the cardboard box and the plastic case. This is for few reasons. We need the plastic casing so that the blanket gets from your home to our distribution safely. Another reason is so it is stored safely in our distribution center and therefore will not grow mold etc. And lastly (and most importantly) this is a piece of bedding, and therefore we have to be very strict due to safety and hygiene. If on the commute back the blanket picked up a pest it could contaminate our entire distribution center.
If you believe that your product has arrived with damage or defect, please contact customer service (email@example.com) within 30 days to return items of poor quality for a refund/exchange. Please include a description and photo verification of the damage in your email.
