New Linen cases have more white threads running through them, slightly lighter color than in main photos, see last picture for new fabric color.

Weighted blankets stimulate our happy hormones while reducing stress-producing hormones. The pressure from the weight of this 9+ pound throw induces a grounded state where anxiety and stress are replaced with peace and safety.    

Visually appealing, these 40" X 40" X 3" throws have the appearance of large, inviting cushions (once filled, the dimensions scrunch to approximately 36" X 36").

The cool to the touch, washable, 100% linen cover adds to the tactile experience. Natural linen works well with any interior style. Flaws in the linen weave are natural (see last photo) and we think add to their charm.

Toss them on the floor for movie night, meditation, yoga or nap time.  Bring a pair to bed with you on a cold night or add to your existing bedding as a stunning bed runner. Turn your heat down a few degrees and your weighted throw pays for itself!

The natural kapok filling is a foraged natural material free of any chemical treatments. Glass beads or sand is a common filling in most natural weighted blankets and we are not sure the reason, except that it is a natural alternative to plastic. With a glass-filled blanket, heat is drawn away from you due to the thermal conductive properties of the glass beads (imagine pressing a piece of glass to your skin, it always feels cool as the heat from your skin flows into the glass).  Kapok, on the other hand, is a dense material that feels warm against your skin and can block any draft.  

Your kit contains 4.5 lbs kapok fiber + 14 lengths of regular cotton tubular fabric  for your baffles + 100% linen zippered case. Kapok and the linen case are sold a la carte as well.  If you need a spare tube, they are the same length tubes we use for our mattress kits.

This is an easy no-sew DIY kit you can complete over a weekend. View the free assembly guide here.

You may want to wear a mask and sunglasses while working with kapok as the tiny fibers can easily become airborne and can be a slight eye irritant.  Wash hands after handling kapok to avoid transferring fibers to your eye.  Simply flush any kapok fiber from your eye with a bit of water if you do accidentally get some in your eye. Transfer kapok to your tubes outside if possible for less clean up :)

Lay your weighted throws side by side or stacked. The tufted, casual texture adds a visual coziness to any space. Room stylists will love the shadows these throws capture for any photoshoot.

Natural Materials

All natural materials will break down over time, creating some residual dust, just as nature has intended! This dust can easily be maintained, vaccumed easily or shaken out in a mesh bag.

Living with natural materials is a choice and does require some extra effort.

Chances are, if you are hear on our site, you already know if it is the right choice for you and your family.

You can order a sample (travel pillow?) to test out any materials you may not be familiar with.

Most natural products, right out of the bag, will have a scent but unfortunately the aroma ofthe materials usually dissapates over the first week.

Shipping & Returns

All sales are final as organic bedding materials cannot be restocked. (Thank you for understanding)

My husband and I bought a kit ...

"My husband and I bought a kit and hulls from you almost 6 months ago. I was telling a good friend last week that we will most likely never buy a traditional mattress again!  It is very comfortable and I truly appreciate the non-toxic, completely compostable aspect. Also, my husband and I really enjoy that movements don't shake the entire bed. Most impressively, neither of us have woken with a back ache in six months."
