Frequent washing of weighted blankets, is usually discouraged to maintain quality and prolong lifespan. Having a cover helps you get an additional layer of protection for your weighted blanket so you don’t have to wash it as often. . If you’re bothered by the cat’s fur, hair or dust in your blanket, you can easily get rid of them by washing the cover. In fact, if you have two covers you can rotate them and minimize the chance of cat hair or dust infecting it! By having a cover for your weighted blanket, you get to save your time and energy, plus you get to preserve the material of the blanket at the same time.
