Duvet Covers For Weighted Blankets. Best Selection Tips

Many brands sell duvet covers for weighted blankets separately. Just as there is a trove of weighted blankets in the market, there are also just as many duvet covers for weighted blankets as well. It can be overwhelming to make a selection, as it is not as easy as one would like to imagine it. This is because some searches pull up more detailed information, while others have limited information.

There are several things you must consider before making your selection. Needless to say, many have found this out the hard way – including “yours truly”! There is benefit in understanding what is available and what your requirements are since there are so many options on the market. Unfortunately, many manufacturers provide limited and different product information that make comparison very challenging.

Reviewing the different fabrics used to make duvet covers and their ability to assist with body temperature maintenance is an important criteria for selecting your cover.

Are Duvet Covers for Weighted Blankets Necessary?

Duvet covers come in different colors and patterns, but those for weighted blankets must have a sturdy side zipper and ties to ensure the blanket remains housed within the cover.

Using a duvet cover helps protect a weighted blanket from spills and damage and reduces the frequency with which the blanket needs to be cleaned.

The obvious reason for needing a duvet cover is convenience. You only need to put the cover in the wash for easy cleaning.

Benefits of Duvet Covers for Weighted Blankets

Protection: Weighted Blankets are expensive and are usually a major investment for some people. Therefore, you need to protect your investment from spills, stains, dirt, dust and even your body moisture and sweat all of which can destroy the texture of your blanket. A duvet cover can provide protection for your weighted blanket.

Washing is easy: You no longer have to dread cleaning your heavy weighted blanket by dry cleaning (which is very expensive in itself) or machine washing (which could over time damage the blanket weighting). All you need to do is remove the duvet covering and pop it in the wash. When dry, you put it back over the weighted blanket!. Most duvet covers appear to already be preshrunk and a few brands advertise this.

Re-decorating your bedroom: Let’s face it, sometimes you get bored with the same look in your bedroom as the years roll by. You can re-decorate by simply changing the color or pattern of your duvet cover which are typically cheaper than purchasing a new weighted blanket or a duvet. This can change your mood and quality of life tremendously.

Selection Criteria

After finally selecting a weighted blanket, read a previous article Weighted Blankets for Seniors – Safe for Insomnia?, it is a good idea to search for a duvet cover to protect your investment, since most are not sold with the covers,

Duvet covers typically come in various fabric materials such as cotton, bamboo or minky (velour). Heavy fabric materials like minky or Sherpa make the weighted blanket warm and cozy, while lightweight fabric materials such as bamboo and cotton, help keep the body dry and cool. Cotton provides all season comfort.

What about color? This may or may not be important to you and is worth giving some thought. Many brands offer only the more neutral colors, so it is easy to see that your choice of color and size can screen out or increase your selection options.

Ensure that you select whichever criteria suits your need.

    • Yes, duvet covers protect your weighted blanket. Although a few say you can wash them, I wouldn’t do so as they can damage your washer or dryer as they toss about inside. I’ve personally have had my weighted blanket for almost 3 years and never washed it once – just been changing the duvet covers. When I do decide that I want a deep clean, I will get it dry cleaned.

  2. Hi Ceci,

    I have to say that your latest articles are making me curious about trying out weighted blankets myself, even though I’m not a senior. You mentioned in your last post that weighted blankets are often smaller than regular blankets, so in my opinion, that’s another major reason to consider a duvet cover – so it covers your whole bed well and evenly, and looks more uniform. I can also see how essential they must be to maintaining cleanliness of the blanket – I wouldn’t even have the slightest idea how to wash a weighted blanket, but popping the duvet in the washer would be super easy.

    The duvet covers you recommend all look very nice and seem like excellent products. Thanks for the suggestions!
