Luxurious Comfort (that's easy to care for)

Both the cover and inside weighted duvet are machine washable.  Tumble dry cold.

The outer cover is removable for quick washes.

The weighted duvet is tied to the cover with multiple ties and loops to make sure it stays connected.

The weighted duvet is 100% cotton with the weight evenly distributed in pockets so it doesn't shift.
