A Little Extra

Our Prime blanket is handmade in the UK, with more and smaller pockets this blanket sets the standard for weight distribution, ensuring that the blanket is effective as it can be. With 12 ties around the blanket it pairs perfectly with our cotton and plush covers, or works just as well by itself.

How does the Prime weighted blanket help?

Our weighted products are effective therapeutic aids, helping people suffering from stress, anxiety and insomnia. Our prime blanket is our top of the range offering; with smaller pockets (10 cm x 15cm) the weighted filling stays perfectly distributed in the blankets. Paired up with a premium plush cover it's truly luxurious.

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 Prime blanket helps you:

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

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.

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?

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

Can my partner and I share a single Prime 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 Prime weighted blanket with Sommio covers, 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.
