How do I clean my Sumo blanket?
Here are the care instructions for both versions of our weighted blanket.
The Sumo Weighted Blanket
Before washing your Sumo Weighted Blanket, separate the outer duvet cover from the inner weighted layer.
Washing: Machine wash the duvet cover in cold water, 30C, with similar colours and use mild detergent. Run the rinse cycle twice to remove any detergent residue. For the weighted insert, we recommend only washing by hand when necessary. Your Sumo Blanket can also be dry cleaned.
Drying: Tumble dry the duvet cover on low and iron on low if needed. The weighted insert should not be put in the dryer.
The Natural Weighted Blanket
Your Sumo Natural Blanket (also known as the Cooling Blanket) is made from natural bamboo so care instructions are a little different. To start, remove the bamboo cover from the inner weighted layer.
Washing: Always wash the cover in cold water, at 30C max and on a gentle cycle. Bamboo is very sensitive so we recommend washing it on it's own to avoid pilling and abrasion. For the weighted insert, if necessary wash by hand only.
Drying: We recommend hang drying your bamboo cover to preserve the fibres, colours and elasticity. If you have to use a dryer, choose a low heat and low tumble cycle. As soon as the dryer finishes, avoid wrinkles by immediately taking it out. If needed iron the bamboo cover at a low temperature. The weighted insert should not be put in a dryer.
