Experience the therapeutic benefits of deep touch pressure stimulation, created especially for you. Handmade in Europe to order, your weighted blanket is the perfect aid to help you unwind and achieve a better night's sleep.
Our weighted blankets 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 and increases the sense of calm.

The best weight blanket for you is:
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!
We love them, and we've had a lot of good feedback about using the blanket for meditation.
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.
We've found that to maximise the effectiveness of the blanket it is best used for only one person
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
