Weight guide

A blanket should not be chosen by your body weight, height or age, but by your needs. You may need to increase the weight to achieve the desired effects, so if you’re deciding between two weights, the heavier one is the safer bet.

Somna® Blanket

4 kg Somna® Blanket
If you like the feeling of the blanket against you, don’t like light, fluffy duvets but still prefer not to have a heavy blanket, then the 4 kg model is for you. This is also ideal if you need greater body awareness but cannot cope with much weight for whatever reason. This is a blanket for those with relatively mild symptoms.

6 kg Somna® Blanket
If you have trouble falling asleep but otherwise sleep well, or if you wake up a lot in the night, choose a blanket between 6 and 10 kg. Bear in mind that the 6 kg blanket has a thinner chain, which offers less of a tactile sensation than the 8 kg blanket and above. 4-6 kg are regarded as the lighter blankets.

8 kg Somna® Blanket
Our 8 kg blanket is a safe bet if you are unsure, as it is the most common weight. If you have trouble falling asleep but otherwise sleep well, or if you wake up a lot in the night, choose a blanket between 6 and 10 kg. Bear in mind that your mattress will absorb a lot of the weight.

10 kg Somna® Blanket
If you require more stimulus to achieve the full effect, choose a heavier blanket. If you have a lot of tension and anxiety you may find sensual stimulation harder, and may need a 10-14 kg blanket.

12 kg Somna® Blanket
You can go up to 12 kg if you’ve already tried the 10 kg and found it inadequate. The 12 kg may also be good if you need a fast effect over a short period. Choose this blanket if you know that you need a lot of weight and stimulus. If you are acting out, the extra weight may feel nice.

14 kg Somna® Blanket
This is our heaviest blanket and can be used for the same purposes as the 12 kg model above. You move less in your sleep under 12-14 kg, so it’s very important to have a good mattress if you have back problems.

Somna® Blanket Sensitive
This blanket is available in 5, 7, 9 and 11 kg. If you’re looking for a warmer, softer blanket, this is the one for you. It has the same properties, with one padded side and one chain-weighted side, but the blanket has double padding. Follow the weight guide for the classic Somna® Blanket.

Somna® Blanket Junior
Our junior blanket comes in two different weights: 3.4 kg and 5 kg. They are used for children sleeping in a cot with a small duvet. Standard practice with the junior blanket is to start with the lightest model and go heavier if you notice no effect. The heavier junior blanket is comparable to the 10 kg adult blanket, as the weight is spread across a smaller area
