A Signature Experience
Our Sommio Cocoon is a weighted blanket in a plush cover, available for quick delivery. The double sided cover has a luxurious plush furry fabric and a smooth fuzzy velvet; providing fantastic tactile stimulation (We never user cheap microfibre/minky).

The weighted inner is hand sewn. The 12 ties around the cover and blanket pair the two together, ensuring the blanket stays in perfect position inside the cover.
Choosing Your Weight
We recommend that you choose a blanket which is between 10-15% of your body weight for maximum therapeutic benefit. Use the slider below to get our recommendation for you:
We recommend a 6 kg Cocoon blanket
What if the weight is not the right fit for me?
No problem! We know that everyone is different, and after trying your blanket for a couple of weeks you may find that you feel a different weight would be a better fit; if this is the case we can arrange for an exchange.
Does my height matter?
The Cocoon blanket is currently only available in an adult medium size, this is best for users between 5 - 6 ft (155 - 185 cm) for larger or smaller users we recommend using our product builder
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.
The Sommio Cocoon blanket helps you:

  • Achieve greater calm
  • Get better sleep
  • Improve body awareness
  • Improve attention and focus
  • Fall asleep faster
What's Special About a Sommio Blanket?
At Sommio we don't cut corners, creating hand-crafted blankets of unrivalled quality. We only ship blankets that we're proud of; manufactured in Europe to a high therapeutic standard. Unlike many other manufacturers our blankets hold medical product status across Europe; so you can feel sure that you're getting only the best.

Our customers are the core of our business, and we're always available to help with any question or concern, before and after purchase.
Hand Sewn
All our products are hand sewn by workers who are paid a fair wage, and quality tested to make sure they match up to our high standards. Each blanket is seperated into a grid of individually hand filled pockets ensuring weight is distributed evenly.
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 blanket and cover are machine washable, we recommend that you wash the cover rather than the weighted blanket for the best longevity.

Please make sure you manuipulate and move your Cocoon 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.
Shipping
We keep our Cocoon blanket in stock for fast dispatch, normally arriving next day in mainland UK, or two days for Highlands and Islands.

Items ordered before 3 PM are dispatched same day, we try to get all orders out same day if possible.
How much does it cost?
Shipping inside the UK is free of charge.
For locations outside inside Europe there is a £15 flat rate
For Locations outside of Europe there is a £40 flat rate.
What are they made of?
The Sommio Cocoon weighted blanket is a cotton weighted blanket, paired with a premium polyester velvet-plush cover.

The weighted blanket is split into pockets to keep the weight in place and distributed across the blanket; we offer both our standard and Prime pocket size weighted blankets as part of the Cocoon.

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 the 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

What are the dimensions of Cocoon weighted blanket?

Our Cocoon weighted blanket is 135x200 cm in 5, 7, 9, and 11 kg variants.

Can I go for the heavier weight?

We've found the blanket is 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 it, and we've had a lot of good feedback about using the blanket for meditation so we'll say yes!

Is the blanket machine washable?

These plush outer and weighted inner are both machine washable, but the wighted inner may be too heavy for some washing machines, so make sure you know the maximum load weight for you machine before adding you blanket to the wash.

Can my partner and I share a single Cocoon blanket?

We've found that to maximise the effectiveness of the blanket it is best used for only one person; however you can still experience the comforting sensation whilst sharing.

Can these be used with a duvet cover?

We recommend only using the Cocoon weighted blanket with the provided cover, the blanket and cover tie together to make sure the weighted inner stays in place; it's common for weighted blankets to bunch inside a standard cover.
