36-inch Sea Turtle, Weighted up to 16lbs
Please contact us prior to purchasing to see how long the current wait time is. Thank you!
This giant 36" sea turtle doubles as a weighted blanket and plushie in one, and would make an amazing addition to your family! Not only is it a beautiful piece to display on your couch, but it feels incredible! It is large enough to cover your torso and lap, and will make you want to just melt into the sofa! It is beautifully made, and can be weighted up to 16lbs, with 2 pounds sectioned off in the head, 2 pounds around the perimeter of the shell, and 12 pounds divided into the last 6 sections of the shell casing. We will try to keep this same ratio for less weight. Once put together, from the outside of the turtle, I sew across the neck to keep the casing held in place, and then tack it down in three other places as shown in the photo. It is a labor of love to put together, but so worth it, as it is such a beautiful piece that will make you the envy of all of your friends!
This turtle is now made with a combination of glass microbeads and poly pellets. The outer perimeter of the turtle is not lined, and can therefore only contain poly pellets. We only use glass in the lined areas because we use a liner fabric with a tight weave and tight stitch so that no glass microbeads bleed through. You can see the lined areas marked in one of the photos.
We use non-toxic washable poly pellets and/or glass microbeads for the weight. Although all materials are washable, for weighted plushes, we recommend hand washing or spot cleaning only. The heavy weight of the plush tumbling in the washer or dryer can cause the seams to split.
