How Does it Help?
Our weighted products are effective therapeutic aids, helping people suffering from stress, anxiety and insomnia.

The weight, pressure and embracing effect help to enhance body awareness, provide a calming sensation and prompt your body to release hormones which have an anxiety-reducing and calming effect both mentally and physically. Greater body awareness reduces tension levels in the body, and this in turn improves breathing and increases the sense of calm.
A Sommio weighted blanket helps you:

  • Achieve greater calm
  • Get better sleep
  • Improve body awareness
  • Improve attention and focus
  • Fall asleep faster

Quality Cotton
Many manufacturers choose to cut costs by using a blended fabric or cheaper Polyester, our blankets are made out of 100% European cotton, selected to blend comfort and durability to create a blanket you'll love, and a blanket which is made to last.
Hypoallergenic
We've made the switch from plastic to glass filling, in a concious move away from materials which have been shown to be harmful to wildlife and the environment. These glass microspheres are hypoallergenic and are suitable for even the most sensitive sleepers.
Caring For Your Blanket
Both the weighted blankets and covers are machine washable, we recommend that you wash the cover rather than the weighted blanket for the best longevity if you have purchased a cover with your blanket.

If your blanket has a cover please make sure you manuipulate and move your blanket by holding the weighted blanket and cover together, the ties are not designed to hold the full weight.
Washing the weighted blanket
Please make sure your washing machine can handle the full weight of the blanket before washing. Please air dry your blanket, drying horizontally is the best way to keep your blnaket in shape and avoid any stretching.

What are they made of?
Our weighted blankets are cotton with glass bead fill, our cotton covers are 100% cotton, plush covers are made from polyester.

The weighted blanket is split into pockets to keep the weight in place and distributed across the blanket; we only offer prime pockets on our Build your blanket items.

The Pockets are filled with glass microbeads, unlike other manufacturers we don't add any other fill to the pockets, this helps to keep the blanket cool and avoid overheating.
How to use a cover
The cover and blanket attach with 12 ties that are placed around the blanket and cover, these help to stop the weighted blanket from bunching inside the cover. These ties aren't designed to hold the full weight of the blanket, it is important that you lift and move the blanket by holding the inner through the cover, not by holding the cover only.

FAQ

Can I go for the heavier weight?

We've found that weighted balnkets are most comfortable and effective at around 10% - 15% of your body weight, but if you feel you'd like to go heavier or lighter then go for it!

Are these any good for meditation?

We love them, and we've had a lot of good feedback about using the blanket for meditation.

Is the blanket machine washable?

These blankets are machine washable but may be too heavy for some washing machines, so make sure you know the maximum load weight for your machine before adding you blanket to the wash. For easier maintainance we recommend a blanket cover.

Can my partner and I share a single weighted blanket?

We've found that to maximise the effectiveness of the blanket it is best used for only one person

Can these be used with a duvet cover?

Our cotton weighted blankets can be used in a duvet cover, but they do tend to bunch together inside the cover. We recommend you use a Sommio weighted blanket cover

How much is delivery?

Delivery inside the UK is free, each of our cotton weighted blankets is made to order so depending on demand it usually takes us between 2 - 5 business days to manufacture an order, with another few days for delivery; most of our customers recieve their blankets within 10 business days.
