I got the blanket for my daughter. She loves it.
So far they love them. One of them found the weight too much and took out some of the weights and also since using it her sleep has improved. Hopefully this will keep getting better. The other member is very happy with the full weight of 7kg. so its different strokes for different folks
Hardly any instances of restless legs, and sleep now restful. Very little trouble getting up without feeling stiff. So glad I bought the blanket and thank you Emer for inventing it.
This was a gift for my teenage daughter who finds it hard to get to sleep at night. The blanket has completely changed that. I actually can’t believe that it works ! It’s expensive and I hoped that it would be worth it, it certainly is ! Well done !
I love it . Quality very nice , definitely waking up less during the night since I started using it .
Why Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket LUXE is Unique?
Kocoono™ is the new and improved take on the original concept of the weighted blanket. To improve stress, sleep and anxiety, Kocoonos’™ patent-pending design provides fully customisable weight, a unique shoulder embrace to reduce tension, and is manufactured ethically using the highest quality materials. Our original Kocoono named Kocoono Weighted Blanket LUXE has unique features that no other weighted Blankets offer. Visit our blog 7 reasons why Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket LUXE is UNIQUE to learn more about the unique features of Kocoono
Your Kocoono should be approximately 10% of your body Weight.
So, our 5kg is suitable if you are 50kg + (8 stone +), 7kg is suitable if you are 70kg + (11 stone +), and the 9kg is suitable if you are 90kg+ (14 stone).
- This can vary based on personal preference. Some people do have a preference for lighter or heavier. It also depends on your own sensory needs! This preference also depends if you are used to sleeping with a lot of weight on you usually.
- If you weigh in-between two weights...
If 10% of your body weight is between the Kocoono Weighted Blanket 5 kg and the 7Kg, you should think about how used you are to sleep with weight and if you find relief from extra pressure. If the response is affirmative, you might need to go for the 7Kg.
In case you are between the 7Kg and the 9Kg Weighted Blanket, we recommend you to choose the lighter option. From our customer base so far, we do find that the 9 Kg is a big step. We also find that women are more sensitive to the deep touch pressure, so they tend to benefit from rounding down unless they have a strong need for the pressure.
The recommendation to choose Kocoono Blanket is approx 10% of the body weight. However, we always recommend to chose a lighter option for elderly We get great feedback from both Kocoono™ Weighted Blankets, but we think that we Kocoono ™ Weighted Blanket LUXE is more comfortable for an older person as we use silicone balls to plump up the weighted channels, so it feels cosier and more similar to a duvet. The BASIC version has a thin layer of wadding in addition to the weighted glass beads, so the weight can feel somewhat more concentrated at times!
The selection depends on your own needs and preferences. You will enjoy the overall health benefits of the Deep Touch Pressure Therapy regardless of whether you choose the BASIC or the LUXE model.
The Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket LUXE version is the first product we launched. It is the most popular as it is slightly more versatile than the BASIC. The main feature that makes it unique is the customisation: you can remove the inner weighted bands in various parts of the Kocoono Blanket to suit your needs as opposed to the Kocoono BASIC, which is one large weighted blanket with an outer cover assembled by 12 ties. The Kocoono™ LUXE version is more versatile as the inner weighted bands are segmented and it moves with you with more ease. It also has an integrated shoulder embrace that allows the weighted element to come up around your shoulder area that creates a nice grounding feeling. The integrated shoulder hug cocoons your body from the top and create the feeling of a hug, which is really comforting to fall asleep.

The Kocoono™ weighted Blanket LUXE is suitable for children aged 4 and over since it is customisable. We recommend starting with the 5kg Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket LUXE and removing the required weighted bands to suit the child´s weight.
The Kocoono BASIC is a less adaptable weighted blanket but still designed to provide you with the same benefits as Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket Luxe.
It has simplicity at its core while keeping the same benefits as Kocoono™ Luxe, using Deep Touch Pressure to reduce life's stresses.: Kocoono™ Weighted Blanket Basic
The Kocoono LUXE has two fabrics to choose from,
minky on one side and 100% cotton on the other,then velvet on one side and 100% cotton on the other.
The minky is very soft and people love the feel of it as it is very sensory and comforting . It would be somewhat warmer as there is longer hairs on the fabric.
The Velvet would be better for summer as the hairs are shorter and would trap the heat less. The velvet fabric is till very soft and has a slightly textured feel to it.
Yes. The Kocoono™ Weighted blanket is suitable for children aged 4 and over.
When it comes to our little ones our Kocoono™ blanket is customisable. We recommend starting with the 5kg weighted blanket (as this is our lightest weight) and removing the required amount of weights to suit your child.
We have 11 channels of weighted panels, that can be removed and re-inserted as your child grows. So your child will be able to grow with their Kocoono™ blanket and you can add weights as they grow.

This is more environmentally and cost friendly than needing to purchase a new blanket at each growth spurt.
You should choose the lightest Kocoono LUXE weighted blanket option for your child, which is the 5kg one (designed for someone who weighs 50kg or 8 stones), and from there adjust the weight. Here we explain to you how to do this:
- Kocoono LUXE has 11 inner weighted bands (9 large bands that stretch across the body and 2 small ones for around the neck that conform and act as the Shoulder Embrace) .
- The 9 large inner weighted bands have the same weight distributed across the 6 pockets sewn into each channel.You will need to remove the required amount of large weighted bands to suit the child , considering that each inner weighted band weighs approx 0.5 kg and you need to get to 10% of your child's body weight.
- For example, if your child weighs only 25kg (4 stone) you would remove approx half of the inner weighted bands.
- The best way to do this is to remove the weighted bands in the lower half of the blanket
-Then, you can add the weighted bands as the child grows.
Kocoono is not designed for heat per se, so we always recommend using it with a duvet in Winter as the idea is not to replace your duvet. We have many customers in Ireland and the UK that would use both all year round.
The way you use it is a matter of preference, and all of our customers use it differently. You will find which works best for you and your own personal preference. Some people prefer to use just their Kocoono others use it on top of or underneath the duvet.
We recommend using a sheet between yourself and your Kocoono just to prevent washing.
