Enjoy deeper sleep with DORMU Weighted Blankets
DORMU is a Hong Kong based wellness brand devoted to giving you better sleep. The award-winning DORMU weighted blanket is the perfect antidote to those pesky sleepless nights and cranky mornings.
The powerful benefits of a good night’s sleep are becoming increasingly well documented, more and more of us are looking for healthier ways to improve the quality and duration of our sleep.
You may have dabbled in sleeping pills and melatonin supplements, which can have a tendency leave you feeling groggy (they can actually disrupt your sleep!). An alternative to chewing gummies and knocking back pills are healthier, natural sleep solutions.
Weighted blankets, in particular, have gone viral and gained immense popularity in recent years for their role in reducing anxiety and promoting a deeper, more restful sleep.
How Weighted Blankets Work
Weighted blankets, as the name suggests, are quite literally heavy blankets. Filled with thousands of micro-glass beads evenly distributed and stitched into the fabric, weighted blankets work by providing a sensation of gentle pressure across the body.
This hug-like sensation has been proven to reduce levels of cortisol (the stress hormone), whilst simultaneously increasing levels of melatonin and serotonin (the sleep and happy hormones).
These hormonal changes allow weighted blanket users to feel relaxed and calm, preparing their bodies and minds to drift off in to a perfect slumber.
Don’t just take our word for it…
A 2020 study, led by a team of Swedish researchers, compared the effects of a light blanket and a weighted blanket on a group of people who have trouble sleeping.
Over a period of 4 weeks, they found that test subjects experienced reduced anxiety and day-time fatigue when using a weighted blanket, as well as a reduction in bouts of insomnia.
Another study found similarly impressive results; as demonstrated by the reported improvements in sleep duration and quality, as well as a reduction in time to get to sleep.
Why DORMU Blankets are a cut above the rest…
DORMU have taken weighted blankets to the next level with their bamboo cooling weighted blanket. The DORMU weighted blanket has been especially designed for the sub-tropical Asian climate.
Say goodbye to tossing and turning at night, the signature bamboo fabric in this blanket allows air to flow with ease, preventing overheating.
In addition to its thermoregulating properties, bamboo is antimicrobial, meaning it prevents the growth of bacteria and other pathogens. And even better, it’s super-silky smooth.
DORMU blankets strictly uses sustainable materials in their weighted blankets, opting for eco-friendly glass beads, instead of plastic pellets used by most competitor brands.
And as if it could get any better, DORMU Weighted Blankets all come with a complimentary matching bamboo cover.

It's too hot in Hk now but I am looking forward to using the blanket more and more as it gets less humid. the material is lovely and soft.
Slow progress at first but I can honestly say that our sleep quality has improved over the past 2 months thank to our weighted blanket.
rated 5 star
Comfy and cooling. and the kapok interior is anice touch
Love the pillow and my blanket 🤩
I am in Love with this blanket. Slightly too hot in HK to get the full benefit but I am still using it every night 🤩🤩
My wife and I have been using weighted blankets for a number of years. They are considerably easier to come by in Denmark and most of Northern Europe but difficult to transport for obvious reasons. Very happy to purchase one for our Hong Kong home. The bamboo material is a nice touch in keeping with the weather conditions as opposed to the more warming blankets back home.
5 star sheets
The four pack is a nice price so we purchased it along with the blanket and sheets. Very soft and comfortable, although I only need to sleep with one of the pillows, we'll give the spare one to my mom. The cooling element is a plus!
Soft and silky. Puchased as a blanket add-on
We bought the bamboo blanket for us and this knitted blanket as a gift for my mom, she loves it!
The bamboo covering the blanket is smooth and comfortable and our sleep quality is noticeably different! The weight feels surprisingly natural and after getting under the blanket we felt more calm even if it took a little bit of getting used to. We highly recommend
We have the white and the grey set. Will definitely be buying more in other colours if availableQ
