Our cotton blankets are designed to be used without a cover, offering a low cost option without reducing quality or effectiveness. Unlike most weighted blankets, each pocket of a Sommio blanket is precisely hand filled, perfectly distributing weight across the blanket and your body, to provide you with maximum benefit.
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 best weight blanket for you is:
Our weighted blankets come in two sizes 135x200 cm and 155x220 cm; and is available in 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 Kilogram variants. We recommend the 135x200 cm size for most users, however if you want a larger blanket we recommend going for the next weight up as less of the weight will be on you.
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!
We love it, and we've had a lot of good feedback about using the blanket for meditation so we'll say yes!
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.
