The size/weight of the user affects what blanket weight to choose. Also
the level of problems perceived is an indicator for what weight to choose
More problems - heavier blanket.
For resting during the day we also recommend more weight since the user
has more clothes on and the senses are more active.
In order to reduce the need for washing we recommend to put the blanket
in a standard cotton cover (In the following pictures we have chosen to
show Kedjetäcket® without a cover.)
The Kedjetäcket® can either be used by itself or it can be combined with your
ordinary duvet.
If you choose to combine Kedjetäcket® with your duvet just place it on top or
under your duvet. We usually recommend to try it on top first.
Wadded side
If you place the chain weighted blanket
on top of the ordinary duvet you get a
very soft, hug like feeling. A feeling of
peace and calmness. Again, try yourself
what you prefer.
Chain side
The two sides of the blanket differ in structure. Wich side one chooses is
due to individual preferences. Having the chain side towards the body
gives more tactile stimulation. This gives a more distinct touch which can
give a stronger calming effect. The best way to know wich side to use is
to try.
On top of ordinary duvet.
Day rest:
Putting the blanket over the shoulders
and letting it shape itself around
your body gives a nice comforting
feeling while resting during the
day. You can also try folding the
blanket and putting it over the
When you have decided what combination
suits you the best just put both your
duvet and your Kedjetäcket® in a regular duvet cover together.
Start off by using Kedjetäcket® only
for a couple of hours . Then gradually
increase the time.
Under ordinary duvet.
