What is the LEVIA weighted 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 to choose the right weight?
The LEVIA Blanket is available in 3 different weights:
7 | 9 | 11 kg
For best results choose a blanket which is around 10-15% of your bodyweight.
If you are in between weights, we advice selecting the lighter version.
How do I wash the LEVIA Blanket?
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.
Why is the LEVIA Blanket more expensive then 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.
What is the difference compared to other blankets?
✔️ 12 Loops for the best support:
The inner blanket (inner shell) has 12 loops that you can mount along with the cover. This way we get 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 inner shell is out of 100% cotton
✔️ We increased the size of the blankets to 140 x 200 cm
✔️The look & feel is second to none
Our biggest priority is to provide the highest quality possible! The LEVIA blanket is a long-term investment and is going to be 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? Will it be too hot?
Thanks to the interchangable blanket cover, the LEVIA weighted blanket can be used all year around, no matter how warm or cold it is:
You can choose from a cover made out cotton for the warm season and a cover made out of ultra-soft and warming minky for cold months.
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.
