question: Big purchase. We want a king size at 30lbs that isn’t too hot, breathes and the pellets don’t shift. Thoughts?
answer: first thing you will need is a magic wand or genie in a lamp....
In all seriousness, how "hot" a blanket feels is purely a matter of individual perception. SensaCalm blankets are made as cool as any other. I would recommend getting cotton only or cotton with a satin backing, which feels very cool.
There is also going ot be a certain amount of shifting of the pellets inside the pockets, there has to be some empty space because if you sew too close to the pellets they break the needle on the sewing machine. The only answer to the shifting problem would be using some type of single solid weight in each pocket, but that would not mold to the body very nicely.
