Many like the comfort of polyfil, and it makes it feel less like a therapy blanket. You can request to have no polyfil, but this will leave your blanket flat, much like a quilt, since there will be no stuffing, just the glass beads to make the weight and the two sides of fabric. Those in hot climates often prefer to leave it out, but most people who get polyfil usually don’t find it any warmer than regular blankets.
Backing Options and Cuddle Fleece
Cuddle is a very soft fleece that is especially good for people who are sensory seekers or just like their blanket to be extra soft. It is not available in all fabrics or full and queen sizes. If the person using the blanket is hot natured or lives in a hot climate, then steer clear of this option because it will make the blanket warmer.
The snaps are for our duvet covers that you can buy to go over your blanket. We use the snaps because it holds the weight of the blanket without ripping the seams like a tie on would do. Having a duvet cover will cut down on the washing of your weighted blanket.
This is a great option if you like having matching bedding. With child or pattern fabrics it may be hard to find a matching pillow case around the house. If you selected cuddle backing, then the pillow case will also be made in cuddle. Pillow cases only come in standard size.
Personalize your blanket with the name or initials of the person using it. It is also great for companies, hospitals, and other companies to keep track of where each blanket belongs. However, monogrammed blankets are not returnable.
