Calming Weight

Wanting an escape from her busy life in New York, Baloo Living Maker Elizabeth Grojean traveled to Bali to slow down and reconnect with herself. When she returned to the city, Elizabeth turned to a weighted blanket to recreate that soothing experience. This type of blanket has long been used as a therapeutic tool to ease anxiety and Elizabeth took that calming, relaxing foundation and made it modern (and more eco-friendly) with her fresh take.

Calming Weight

Wanting an escape from her busy life in New York, Baloo Living Maker Elizabeth Grojean traveled to Bali to slow down and reconnect with herself. When she returned to the city, Elizabeth turned to a weighted blanket to recreate that soothing experience. This type of blanket has long been used as a therapeutic tool to ease anxiety and Elizabeth took that calming, relaxing foundation and made it modern (and more eco-friendly) with her fresh take.

Soft, machine-washable cotton wraps around glass beads that provide the gentle weight in Baloo Living’s blankets. The beads are stitched into pockets to prevent them from shifting, so the blanket’s weight stays evenly distributed. These beads are a better choice than plastic ones commonly used, both for the earth and for contouring over the body.

This roomy blanket can cover the top of a twin- or queen-size bed and it comes in three different weights, depending on your size and sleep position. We tried the blanket out and were amazed at the peaceful effect it created and how comfortably secure you can feel just by pulling it on.
