WHAT IS IT?
A weighted duvet is just what the name suggests – a duvet with a heavy and weighted filling. The additional weight gives your body a comfortable and relaxing embrace when you lay down to rest. It might sound a bit odd but let us go through the reasons why more and more people prefer a weighted version prior to their ordinary duvet.
EFFECTS OF THE WEIGHTED DUVET
Weighted duvets create pressure on the skin that feels similar to a soft embrace.nnThe pressure stimulates deep skin receptors and signals to our hormone system to produce and release feel-good hormones such as oxytocin. The result includes deep relaxation and better sleep for the vast majority of users!
NINE OF TEN EXPERIENCE BETTER SLEEP
In a survey with 450 participants, 90 % stated that they experienced better sleep quality when they used a weighted duvet from CURA. In addition to this result, 92 % experienced increased relaxation, and as many as 96 % recommend a CURA weighted duvet to their friends.nnIn addition to better relaxation and sleep quality, the comfort of the weighted duvet was also reflected in the survey results as 86% of the users stated that the CURA duvet was more comfortable than their previous duvets.

Choosing the right weight
The perfect weight of a weighted duvet can be very individual to achieve the best effect and comfort. Parameters like weight and height play an essential part, as well as stress, anxiety, worry and difficulty sleeping. The basic rule is to choose a weight that you calculate from your own body weight. CURA of Sweden recommends that you choose a duvet equivalent to 10 – 15 % of your body weight. This is, however, just a recommendation. Read more about choosing a weight for your weighted duvet.

Pregnancy and weighted duvets
Feeling tired is something that many women experience during their pregnancy. Difficulty finding a sleeping position, nasal congestion or vivid dreams can all be disturbing factors that affect sleep. A weighted duvet can serve as a natural aid for deeper relaxation and better sleep.
WEIGHTED DUVETS IN HEALTHCARE
Weighted duvets have been used successfully in Swedish healthcare for nearly 15 years. The duvet has often been used to treat sleep problems for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders, severe pain or anxiety. nnToday we know that the effects of using weighted duvets apply to almost all people, regardless of medical background and degree of sleep problems. In addition, people who consider themselves to sleep well experience improved sleep when using a weighted duvet.
You might think that the use of heavy duvets is a new phenomenon. But in fact, people have used heavy duvets throughout most of our history. nnHistorically, people used heavy animal skins and straw mats when the night's chill made extra warmth necessary. And before the lightweight down duvets of the 195Os and the mass-produced, cost-effective fake fibre duvets of the 197Os, significantly heavier broadcloth duvets were most commonly used in households across Scandinavia.
