It warms you up when it’s cold outside, and cools you down when it’s warm and summery. In short, the HILU does the job of a thermostat, but in the shape of a smart, soft blanket that’s made from the most unusual substance you’d ever find in a blanket – graphene fibers.
As we say goodbye to the worst of the winter months and start entering that perfect few weeks of spring before summer hits us, there’s an entire routine we need to go through. The thermostat needs to change, the wardrobe goes through a complete transition, and if you’ve got that massive blanket/duvet on your bed, chances are you need to swap it out for something thinner and more breathable. HILU wants to eliminate one of those steps.
Designer: HILU Design
Designed to be the world’s first pure graphene blanket, HILU does a remarkable job of thermoregulating you as you sleep. Depending on how hot or cold you’re feeling, HILU regulates your temperature to bring it to a more comfortable zone. When you’re feeling hot, HILU cools you down, when the AC’s on full blast or if you’re just feeling cold, HILU traps heat to warm you up. It can even do both at once, simultaneously keeping one half of the bed cool and the other warm, so that you and your partner are comfortable no matter the temperature!
HILU’s fabric construction starts with the use of pure graphene fiber. To create this, graphite is dissolved into liquid graphene crystals through a proprietary wet spinning process. These liquid crystals are then dried to form the fibers which are then woven together with Adaptex technology. This creates a blanket that can sense and adjust to one’s body temperature, while also ticking the other important boxes with blanket design by being soft, comfortable, hypoallergenic, and even OEKO-TEX100 certified. An added benefit of having your blanket made out of pure graphene is that it also makes your HILU incredibly durable and virtually tear-proof.
With that, the world’s first pure graphene blanket makes the bold promise of being the perfect year-round blanket that works in any weather. When you’re cold, the fibers regulate your body temperature by dissipating heat, and when you’re hot, the graphene absorbs heat from your body into itself, cooling you down in the process, preventing the build-up of humidity, and keeping you dry and sweat-free all night long. Even if you do sweat, the graphene fibers offer anti-bacterial properties, so your blanket remains fresh for weeks if not longer… and if you ever do need to wash your HILU, you can put it in your washing machine on the gentle cycle with cold water and tumble dry on low to have it as good as new!
The HILU blanket is available in both Queen and King sizes, and ships with a rather astounding 10-year manufactured warranty. Although the blanket itself comes in satin grey, you can choose from 3 stitch colors (gray, blue, and green) to match the rest of the decor in your room. For the lovebirds out there, there’s even a Valentine’s Combo that lets you add a memory foam eye-mask to your pledge!
