Our weight blanket is designed to fit adults and is currently available in weights of 5 kg and 10 kg. Choosing a slightly heavier blanket can for some feel better and reinforce the feeling of being held, calm and safe - a bit like a hug. If you want a smaller blanket that only covers parts of the body, we recommend our lighter and smaller blanket. Children can also have positive effects from our weight blankets and we then recommend our smaller and lighter blanket of 5 kg. We advise against using our weight blanket for small children (under 5 years). People with special problems where it may be unclear whether the person himself is strong enough to easily remove the blanket. If you have difficulty breathing, asthma, heart problems, we recommend that you consult your doctor before use.
The story behind our unique weight blanket in wool is that I, as a psychologist, both in conversations with clients and colleagues have experienced what positive effects a weight blanket can have for our ability to relax and get down in laps. From this experience came my dream of developing my very own weight blanket form. I wanted to produce a weight blanket that I would like to use myself. Important keywords in my work were that the new weight blanket would be really good in its function, at the same time it would be easy to handle at home, it would also be beautiful to look at and in environmentally friendly and comfortable materials. To take the step from vision to finished blanket, the collaboration with Klippans Yllefabrik has been invaluable. They immediately believed in the idea of a new kind of weight blanket, which further strengthened my faith and drive for a "new generation" weight blanket, which resulted in a weight blanket in lovely organic wool. When Wesomnia's wool felt blanket was finished, it felt fantastically fun. Having managed to combine my experiences from the work of a psychologist, ie how important it is with moments of stillness, recovery and a functioning sleep to maintain health, with my purely private thoughts about how I wanted a weight blanket to feel and work at home. In my home!
Finally, we have opened the doors for Wesomnia's pop-up in Sturegallerian, Stockholm. Wesomnia's pop-up is not an ordinary store, but a place for recovery and relaxation. The store is carefully decorated in collaboration with Pella Hedeby, where our focus is on sustainable materials and focus on the individual. Here you are welcome to ask questions and experience the effect of Wesomnia weight blankets. We are open Mon-Fri 10-19, Sat 10-17 and Sun 12-17, October through December 2020. Hope to see you!
