Use, Care and Safety Instructions
Use and Care Instructions
The Corala Blanket is designed to last for many years, so long as you follow the proper use and care instructions. To make things simple, all of these instructions can be found below. You’ll find the care requirements similar to other blankets.
Your Corala Blanket comes with a warm winter duvet cover and a cooler summer duvet cover that is 100% cotton. Please remember to always secure the weighted inner blanket to your duvet cover at all eight locations. Doing so will keep the inner blanket securely in place and evenly distribute the weight across the body.
Make sure the Duvet cover is inside out so you can see the ties. Lay it out on a flat surface.
Place the weighted blanket on top of the duvet. This will be on the inside of the duvet when you’re finished.
Secure each to its hook using a double knot.
Reach inside the zipper opening, grab the far left corner and pull it out. Do the same for the far right corner then tuck the other corners inside the cover, turning the entire blanket inside out.
Zip up the cover
First and foremost, based on research using a weighted blanket is safe. The Corala blanket is 20 lbs and engineered to weigh 7% to 12% of your body weight, making it ideal for a person weighing 140 to 300 lbs – you should not allow children to use the Corala blanket.
Additionally, the glass beads used to add weight to the blanket are small and round, representing a possible choking hazard for children. Never use a damaged weighted blanket as the beads may leak. The glass beads are non-toxic and hypo-allergenic, but just like any non-edible item, they should not be ingested.
A weighted blanket should not be used to swaddle a person and it should never cover the face or head of the user. The use of a weighted blanket should always be optional and left to the user’s own final discretion. Any person incapable of removing the blanket own their own should not be allowed to use it.
Additionally, a person with reduced lung capacity and/or low muscle capacity should not use a weighted blanket without first seeking medical advice.
Weighted blankets are far from a fad. With their ability to reduce stress and anxiety while promoting more restful sleep, there’s no doubt that they will be around for many years to come. In fact, we are only just beginning to fully understand the benefits a weighted blanket and deep touch pressure (DTP) therapy can have, even (and especially) for healthy adults.
