SOMNOS Therapeutic Weighted Comforter

Enhance the quality of your sleep with the SOMNOS Therapeutic Weighted Comforter. SOMNOS combines the medical advantages of a weighted blanket with the luxury of a duvet to deliver a therapeutic experience. Through even weight distribution across the body, weighted blankets encourage relaxation and sleep. By combining textile technology and sleep science, SOMNOS offers a unique weighted comforter. SOMNOS integrates a patented air circulating technology, which enhances breathability and keeps your body at an optimal temperature, without overheating. Additionally, an innovative body contouring system comfortably hugs your body and increases levels of melatonin and serotonin. It also promotes a deep, natural, and restorative sleep cycle. SOMNOS consists of high-quality, hypoallergenic materials and uses glass beads for even and smooth weight distribution. You can even unzip the comforter in two halves for sharing or handing. Finally, SOMNOS comes with a Sleep Anywhere Bag for optimal sleep on the go.

Hi Jennifer, SOMNOS will come with a detailed brochure where we describe washing and handling instructions and there will also be a care label at the comforter directly as well. The Zipper functionality makes the comforter machine washable. Thanks again for your support!
Jennifer Cheong
I do hope you will include detailed washing instructions with the comforter. Will be difficult looking for it in the comments. Thx.
SOMNOS®
@Marc - also for more information on the King size and the sharing option, check out the video below: https://www.facebook.com/SomnosSleep/videos/538680456473970/
SOMNOS®
Thanks, Marc for supporting SOMNOS. SOMNOS is designed as a regular comforter and we will also offer bed covers that go with in it in grey and white. We will also customize the King size comforter to the individual weights of both sleepers, so both can get the full medical benefits. You can also choose to unzip it and use it as two separate comforters.
Marc Isikoff
I ordered the king since I have king size bed here in the US. I will choose grey if you have that. And since it's zippered I'm assuming it's similar to a comforter inside a duvet? That "type" not exactly but similar.
Paul Daniels
@Creator, thanks a lot for the fast response - this is a great feature and will make me save a lot of money!
Excellent design - I am getting two comforters :)
SOMNOS®
Hi Paul, that's a great question and we had the same problem with all the other weighted blankets that we have tried before. Washing machines in the US and in Europe don't handle the weight of weighted blankets and dry-cleaning costs a fortune for these blankets. That's why all SOMNOS comforters come with a Zipper for easy washing and handling! Hope that answers your question
SOMNOS®
Hi Amanda, thanks so much for reaching out. SOMNOS is constructed with small air and weight channels, which keeps the weights in place. We also use very small medical grade beads that have the texture of sand, so there is no noise like in other plastic-filled weighted blankets.
SOMNOS®
Hi Andy, we are thinking to offer the European standard pillow case size of 80x80 cm - Would that be helpful for your Tempur Pillow?
Paul Daniels
Hi SOMNOS, my washing machine can't handle weights above 12 lb - typical American load. I am concerned this is going to destroy my machine. How can I take care of the blanket without doing really expensive dry cleaning? Thanks!
Amanda Mendez
@creator
What keeps the weighted glass beads from all shifting and gathering at one end of the channels?
Andy
Thanks for the prompt reply. The Tempur pillows are 50cmx74cm but they're very thick (tall) so they don't fit into a standard pillow case. I had to purchase extra large pillow cases: 22"x31" (56cm x 79cm) to accommodate the extra thickness. The description on Tempur's website for their pillow cases states that they fit their 74cm x 50cm pillows - it doesn't say that the pillow cases themselves are 74cm 50cm in dimension. Hope that helps?
SOMNOS®
Hi Andy, we are planning to offer the standard pillow case size: 20" x 26" (50x70cm) for the pillow cases. I just checked the German Tempur Website and the memory foam pillows are 50x70cm and their pillow cases are 50x74cm. We will look into that. Which pillow case size are you currently using?
Andy
Awesome news about the pillow cases! Will they come in different sizes - we have Tempur memory foam pillows which are larger than standard pillows!
H Campbell
That is great news! I love that you'll have the pillow case options as well. Very classy!
SOMNOS®
Hi H Campbell, we have checked with our production team today and we are looking into offering a third color and would go for the beige then. We will offer white and grey for sure and if feasible also will offer beige. We will also include matching pillow cases.
H Campbell
Well, of those two, I suppose I would choose the white, because grey is the opposite of the tones I'm trying to match. I was just hoping you were still looking for some additional input. Thanks for your super prompt reply!
H Campbell
*are going (not or going). I hate auto-correct.
SOMNOS®
Thanks, H Campbell, we are currently working on a grey and a white option for the covers. What do you think about those two colors?
H Campbell
I was thrilled to see that covers or going to be available for the comforters! I would very much like to see one in a tan/beige/ taupe color. Thank you!
SOMNOS®
Hi Dominique, SOMNOS doesn't contain any down. It consists of Lyocell (made out of Eucalyptus trees ) and Cotton.
Dominique Clarke
Does this contain any down? Allergic.
SOMNOS®
Hi Marissa, if you would like to buy two comforters within the same category for example two Queen, you would just need to double the pledge amount. We have also signed up with backerkit that will give all our backers the flexibility to get additional add ons after the campaign.
Marissa
What if I want to purchase more than one?
SOMNOS®
Hi Vesta, we would need some additional information on weight and height to provide you with the right information on size given that you will be sharing the comforter. Could you drop us a message?
SOMNOS®
Thanks, Jennifer for your support! We are currently working on the matching covers and they will be available at a very reasonable price through backerkit at the end of the campaign. SOMNOS also has corner loops and many of our testers actually use their comforter with their regular bed cover as well.
Jennifer Cheong
Thanks for the comprehensive response! I think I’ll stick with Somnos even though it’s much more expensive. I’m hoping you’ll provide backers a reasonable price for the cover or can we use any normal (in my case) queen size quilt cover?
Vesta Kor
Hi, My mattress is an extra wide Queen (62 inches wide x 78 inches in length). I am wondering what the right size is for 2 adults sleeping on this mattress. I am afraid that the Queen size you offer (64 inches wide) would not be sufficient as I like to have a little bit of extra coverage to cover my whole back and to wrap my feet under when I sleep without necessarily being too close to my partner. Would you recommend the King size in this case? Also, if I choose the king size, and if I find that 84 inches is too wide, would I be able to use the comforter in the opposite direction (78 inches wide and 84 inches in length)?
SOMNOS®
Hi Kevin, SOMNOS has actually met a couple of dogs already and many of our Sleep Testers actually share SOMNOS with their furry friends, but I guess your question is more concerned about safety. The comforter is made out of three layers and the weights are stored in cotton pockets inside the comforter, so it would be extremely difficult for your dogs to rip them apart. The surface of the comforter is made out of Lyocell which provides a smooth surface and it's also washable at 60 degrees Celsius.
Kevin Charland
What happen when your comforter meet a dog ? � Does dog fur stick on it?
SOMNOS®
Hi Bryan, yes, SOMNOS is machine washable at 60 degrees Celsius. We customize the King 2-in-1 Comforter for both sleepers. So we could customize the King version for you and your wife, while the Queen version can be customized only to the weight of one Sleeper.
SOMNOS®
Hi Jennifer, thanks so much for reaching out. We think it is great that there are more and more weighted products coming into market. This helps to create awareness for a product that can help many people sleep better and feel better. Personally we have tested many weighted blankets and while we love the concept, they made us hot when sleeping under them. Our goal with SOMNOS was to create a high quality, eco-friendly option that addresses the shortfalls of traditional products: 1.) Plastic: Most weighted blankets are actually using plastic for the weights, while SOMNOS uses medical grade glass beads. 2. Blanket vs. Comforter: the biggest difference is that SOMNOS is an actual bed comforter while traditional weighted products on the market are "blankets" that consist of two layers sewed together with plastic inside. 3. Materials: SOMNOS is made of natural Lyocell, a highly breathable fiber made out of wood pulp, which is fully biodegradable with small air channels that keep the air circulating to prevent overheating. We don't know the Recovr Blanket, what we can see though is that they use Polyethylene, which is another word for plastic. In our research we came across many similar looking blankets that are made in China: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/wholesale-stock-custom-gravity-sensory-child_60651231747.html So you might want to check back with their team to get more information on sourcing, consumer protection and how it is actually different from the products that can be bought for 15 USD in China on Alibaba already today.
Jennifer Cheong
Hi @Somnos, how does Somnos differ from the Recovr blanket also currently on Kickstarter? They seem to use Polyethylene as opposed to lyocell. Is there a difference?
bryan tan
Hi Somnos would like to check if the comforter be washed in a washing machine. ?
Also if I take a queen size comforter is it possible to customise the comforter to my spouse and me ?
SOMNOS®
Hi Peter,
great to hear back from you. We will be working with Backerkit who will be ensuring that we have a smooth and well-managed process after the campaign ends and they also offer the flexibility to get additional add-ons after the campaign. While we of course would love to keep you as a backer, we can not recommend to sew two comforters together (they are proper comforters with multiple layers and little air channels inside and would be very difficult to combine :-) How flexible are you on the timing? We could check how long it will take us to develop and manufacture the long-version and then see if the timing would be acceptable for you.
Half-Pint-Hero -> Peter ;-)
@creators: ...again to the long version... Sorry for the long time of silence ... *bow* Thanks for the prompt reply :-), even if it was not the one I was hoping for :-( Now I have to decide if I'm out of here (but I do not want that, because I want such a weighted-blanket !!!) or if I can raise my Super-Early-Queens-Pledge with a kid-comforter (Unfortunately there is no corresponding pledge :-( Maybe there will be a pledge mangager after the project, where I can buy this as an add-on?) and sew myself a long version out of these two ;-) Any opinions on that? ;-)
Sébastien. D
Okay, i have just seen the FAQ... :p.
Thanks creator, i have changed my pledge. The FAQ is available here and answers a lot of questions :

This is such an excellent idea and one I have been waiting for for so many years. I wish I could afford to back it and I am sitting here crying because it seems like it is within reach, just not within reach of my bank account. I wish you all the best of luck, I hope to see this on store shelves one day.
SOMNOS®
Hi Sébastien, we recommend the Twin size for you as the comforter should not hang over the edges of the bed. Here are also the sizes in cm: - Child (38" x 62") = 96 cm x 157 cm
- Twin (54" x 78") = 137cm x 198 cm
- Queen (64" x 78") = 162 cm x 198 cm
- King (84” x 78”) = 213 cm x 198 cm
Sébastien. D
Thanks a lot creator for your answer. Another question : I'm in France and my bed will likely be a twin size 140-200 cm. Do you think that the queen size blanket could fit or I really need to take the twin size blanket for a twin size bed? Also maybe add the size in cm in your campaign presentation could help a lot European folks like me ^^
SOMNOS®
Hi Andrew, thanks for your questions. During the campaign you only have to choose the size of your comforter and we customize the weight after the campaign. We don't only look into your weight and height, but also factor in sleep history and medical conditions. We also make sure that the comorter fits the body for the full medical benefits and there will be proportionally more weight for a larger size, ranging to our King size, where you literally have a 2-in-1 comforter with a full customization to each sleeper. We are sorry you have missed the Super Early bird, but our current early bird tier still offers a 30% discount compared to the retail price.
SOMNOS®
Hi Sébastien, thanks for your question: Weighted blankets have been around for many years, however there were certain vital aspects lacking that SOMNOS wanted to incorporate into their vision of a weighted blanket. The SOMNOS comforter delivers the following unique qualities : - Many people have struggled to get a full night’s sleep without getting extremely hot. SOMNOS has successfully designed a weighted comforter that does not create excess heat.
- Different Materials: Most weighted blankets use plastic, hence SOMNOS chose to only use natural fibers (like Lyocell which is a breathable fiber) and glass marbles for the weights (which are not only biodegradable but also smooth to the touch and distribute more evenly).
- A zipper function is included which enables the SOMNOS comforter to be used as a lap pad. People with anxiety who tested the SOMNOS comforter reported that it helped them to cover their lap or legs with the comforter (zipped, unzipped or folded).
- It can be folded and put into a customised SOMNOS bag which makes it far easier to carry and store, enabling it to play a key role in one’s daytime routine. For example, taking it to the office or using it in travel.
- Instead of the the large quadratic weight pockets usually used in the past, SOMNOS has designed slim body-contouring channels which enable the comforter to drape over the body; maximising its medical benefits.
- It is machine washable at 60 degrees!
SOMNOS®
Danke Marcus! Wir arbeiten bereits am grauen Cover! We are currently working on a grey bed cover.
Sébastien. D
Hi! I would like to know what's the difference with the gravity blanket that was also on kickstarter ? Also, without a doubt a stupid question but do you wash the weight blanket like other type of blanket? Usually I go to the dry cleaning shop... Thanks a lot!
Have a great day,
Andrew
One last thing... I visited your website and it said I could get 40%. How do I take advantage of that?
Andrew
Something I thought of since the weight distribution will be different with a larger sized blanket. If I would normally choose a 28lb blanket with a Twin, what kind of weight should I choose with a Queen?
Andrew
Man, I'm really sad I missed the Super Early Bird. I have bad PTSD and I've been in the market for a breathable heavy weighted comforter.

I am with SO Mugler. I like the colour suggestions Dark blue or grey. Viel Erfolg noch bei eurer Kampagne:)
SP Mugler
@creator - Glad to hear and thanks for asking. Personally, I'd like dark blue in something soft and easy to clean. Gray and/or geometric patterns sound good too.
