This year, I got a weighted blanket for Christmas. I had a bit of a hard time figuring out how to cover a weighted blanket, until some one showed me how to do it correctly. I wish some one had snapped a picture of me halfway inside the cover trying to connect it all (And failing) but after trying and failing for awhile my sister in law actually showed me how to do it and it took about five minutes to get the cover on the weighted blanket.

The weighted blanket I got is pictured above. It’s 15 pounds and pure magic to sleep under. However, it would be miserable to try to wash this thing. Getting a cover for your weighted blanket is a great way to make the washing process a lot easier.
Until you try to put the cover on and realize it’s not small endeavor to throw around a 15+ pound blanket and try to align it with the cover to get it on straight.
The blanket I got has hooks along it so that you can tie the inside of the duvet cover to the blanket so everything stays in place. You don’t need to try to climb inside the cover yourself to line it all up though. (I tried and it doesn’t work anyway…)
Instead, flip the cover inside out and lay it flat on the floor. Then, lay the blanket out on top of the cover, and tie all the pieces together. Then, you can turn the cover right-side-out and your weighted blanket will be perfectly aligned inside the cover!
Much easier than all the crazy things I was trying before my sister in law showed me how to cover a weighted blanket!
Have you ever tried sleeping with a weighted blanket? I am loving mine so far!!!
