ABOUT LEVIA

What is the LEVIA blanket?

The LEVIA blanket is a so called weighted blanket. Designed to be about 10-15% of your body’s own weight – the calming deep pressure stimulation of LEVIA blanket triggers the sensation of feeling hugged, relaxed, protected and ultimately, sleepy. 


While using LEVIA, your body produces “feel good” hormone serotonin and the “sleep good” hormone melatonin as a direct effect of the extra weight. 


This is the science-backed reason why LEVIA helps you to relax and experience a sound sleep.  

How do I wash the LEVIA Blanket?

Easy-peasy! 
Our product consists of two parts: 
A cover made of cotton or minky & a weighted duvet 


You can wash the minky cover and the duvet in the washing machine at 30 °C and the cotton cover at 60 °C.


You should wash the cover and the blanket separately. 

Please don’t put the blanket in a dryer as this might harm the fabrics.  

How does the LEVIA blanket differ from other weighted blankets?

✔️ 12 Loops for the best support: 

The duvet has 12 connection points that you can mount along with the cover. This way we make sure the inner shell stays exactly where it should.


✔️ Glass beads for a better feeling

instead of plastic pallets, we decided to use glass beads, which are little glass pearls in the size of sand corns – anti-allergic and washable.


✔️ Smaller weight chambers:

Other than many of our competitors, our blanket has smaller chambers for the weight. Those 7x7cm chambers help to distribute the weight more evenly on the body and guarantee a better weight distribution.


✔️The duvet is out of 100% cotton  


✔️ We increased the size of the blankets to 140 x 200 cm


✔️The look & feel is outstanding 


Our biggest priority is to provide the highest quality possible! The LEVIA blanket is a long-term investment and is produced to endure years of daily usage. We have engineered this blanket exactly for this purpose – a blanket for your everyday use and everyday needs. 


With LEVIA, we took weighted blankets one step further. 

Can I use the blanket during hot summer nights? Won't it be too hot?

Thanks to the interchangeable blanket cover, the LEVIA weighted blanket can be used all year round, no matter how warm or cold it is:


You can choose from a cover made out of cotton for the warm season and a cover made out of ultra-soft and warming minky for cold months. 

How can I order additional covers?


Do I have a warranty if something breaks?

Customer satisfaction is our main priority. 

We grant a 12-month warranty where we promise to carry out all repairs / replacements free of charge as a result of material or production faults.

What is the 30 days money back guarantee?

What is the difference between a weight blanket and a therapy blanket?

There is no difference between a weight blanket and a therapy blanket. 


Therapy blankets, also known as gravity blankets, are just another term for a heavy blanket. 


The LEVIA blanket therefore also falls into the category of therapy blankets. 

For which disabilities, disorders and symptoms is the LEVIA blanket suitable?

For years weighted blankets have been applied  in the medical sector – with great success. Therapeutic blankets are proven to help people that are suffering from the following disorders, disabilities and symptoms:  
» Insomnia and other sleep disorders
» Stress and burnout 
» Anxiety (e.g. panic attacks) 
» Depression 
» ADD and ADHD 
» Autism un Asperger's Syndrome 
» Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) 
» Psychological and physical tension 
» Alzheimer‘s and Parkinson 
» Dementia 
» Sensory disorders 


Are weighted blankets suitable for everyone?

Don’t worry, LEVIA blankets are safe to use, but you should keep following exceptions in mind: 


» Not for children under the age of 5 or below the weight of 20 kg without supervision
» Not for persons with advanced type 2 diabetes
» Not for persons with a diabetic foot syndrome
» People with kidney problems should consult their doctor before using LEVIA
» Every person needs to be able to remove the blanket easily by themselves 

Does one get used to the additional weight of the LEVIA blanket easily?

Most clients need only 1-3 nights in order to fully adapt to the additional weight and feel the positive effects of LEVIA. Others report that they needed up to 2 weeks until they got used to the weight. It differs from person to person. Take your time to get accustomed to the amazing effects of our weighted blanket – after all you will have 30 days to do so. 


If you shouldn’t feel any improvement in your sleep quality or if the weight should be too heavy after 3 nights, we suggest the following: 


Take your LEVIA to the couch and use the blanket for 1-2 hours every day. This will help your body to get familiar with the additional weight. After 5 days take the blanket to the bedroom and enjoy healthy and restful stream. 


If all of the above does not help, you have the option to return the blanket and get a refund.

Why is the LEVIA Blanket more expensive than normal blankets?

This is due to 3 reasons: 


1. It takes longer and needs more resources to produce one weighted blanket compared to a normal one. 


2. From the beginning it was key for us to develop a weighted blanket with superior materials and highest quality – it is designed to accompany you for many years. 


3. All LEVIA products are produced in Europe. 


The LEVIA Blanket is a unique long-term investment that you will benefit from by avoiding mental health issues or the consumption of sleeping pills.
