The selection depends on your own needs and preferences. As we explained above you will enjoy the overall health benefits of the Deep Touch Pressure Therapy regardless of whether you choose the Basic or the Luxe model.
If you normally experience differences in your weight , you may prefer to have the customisable option (remember that the weight has to be around 10% of your weight). If you don't like pressure on certain areas, or you just want to apply pressure on your legs but not on the upper part of your body, you might prefer the customisable option, as you can remove the inner weighted bands to suit your needs.
If you are a hot sleeper or suffer from hot flushes at night, the Kocoono Weighted Blanket LUXE will offer you a cooling effect.
If you suffer from shoulder and neck tension, the Luxe version has the shoulder embrace that will help you alleviate this tension. Although, remember that we have the Kocoono™ Shoulder Hug that can also solve this need.
Kocoono ™ Weighted Blanket LUXE is more comfortable for elderly, especially if their movement is compromised. The segmented inner weighted bands of the Kocoono LUXE creates ease of movement. We use silicone balls to plump up the weighted channels, so it feels cosy and similar to a duvet.
** Bear in mind that older people can be more sensitive to weight. If the person's weight is between 2 weight options, we recommend to chose the lightest of them in this case.
The Kocoono™ weighted Blanket LUXE is suitable for children aged 5 and over as it is customisable. We recommend starting with the 5kg Kocoono Weighted blanket LUXE (the lightest weight) and removing the required inner weighted bands to suit the 10% of the child's body weight. The inner weighted bands can be re-inserted as the child grows.
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 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.
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.

Let me start by saying I’m a granny, I noticed that one of my healthy, athletic 10 year old grandson found it difficult to go to sleep, I expected it was because he was away from home. I asked his mum about it, she confirmed he had a problem going to sleep.
In short I gave him a gift of your Weighted Blanket. The feedback he gave me delighted my heart “I love it, it stops me from turning and twisting in bed and I can go to sleep” he told me, he cuddles himself in the Blanket “its good the weight stops me turning” he said.
I’m a granny, I love to give hugs. Your Weighted Blanked Kocooned my grandson with the comfort and hug he needs to go to asleep.
Thank you for your healing work
We bought the Kocoono for my 11 year old daughter who had difficulty falling asleep. We are very happy with the product as she falls asleep more easily now. Highly recommend.
I have been sleeping so much better since I received my blanket, I wish I could have had one years ago. Doesn't feel weighty when I'm under it, just comforting. It would be useful to be able to buy spare covers. Cotton quality is good.
I bought Kocoono blanket for my daughter and she absolutely loves it! She cuddles in it at bedtime for a little bit of reading and is ready for good night sleep after. It is really good quality and I love the soft finish. Very happy with it!
Very happy with the weighted blanket
