Design and Material.
As the temperature has been dropping and the gas and electric bills have been rising, in y household we've been cutting back, we have no heating on but we do have a wood burning stove, I live in a big house however and this can take all day to warm the full house up so having to invest in other things to keep up wrapped up on the sofa or warmer in bed. The design of this is pretty simple, not only is it a large blanket that depending on your height will cover your full body, it has large arm holes and sleeves as well which is the slankets main selling point. There is also a large pocket so when wearing this you can put things in there. This will cover everything thing from your toes to your head if you wear it in the opposite direction you cab hook it over your head like a hood, so you don't need to be cold again because the slankets covers everything, literally. I have two of these one a Zebra print and a navy blue colour, I think these were purchased from separate brands because my blue one is thicker and my sister has a light pink one which is bigger and a lot thicker than both mine put together but these come sin all colour and all styles to suit you. The material is made of fleece all over and this is how it keeps your warm.
Wearing the Slanket.
You wear this on your front, You know which was around to put this because it has a pocket and this pocket is in the middle of the slanket and goes on the front on you, So when your in bed or on the sofa you can drape this over you, tuck it underneath yourself but still have your arms and hands free yet they're warm as well which is the best thing about the slanket, ever had been tucked up in bed but need to eat or drink or even read but it's cold and you don't want to take your arm's out of bed? well this is why the slanket has sleeves, so you cans till do all these things.
I wear this like a dressing down as well so the pockets on my back) because this allows me to walk around the house and wrap it all around me but still be able to move with ease, I also have both of mine underneath my duvet in bed so make it warm as soon as I get in bed and keep me warmer through the night. The slanket doesn't discriminate people's sizes whether your a size 6 or a size 16 this will still fit you because it's really massive, I'm only 5ft 2 in height and a size 8 and this drowns me with fuzzy fleece, the slanket is 152.4cm wide by 241.3cm long.
Conclusions, Price and Availability. This slanket allows you to be as snug as a bug in a rug, or at least that's what we look like because it's so big, it allows you to maneuver around the house with it on either way which you can still make cups of tea and be warm you can read, eat, drink or even just touch your own face without you having to take your arm's out and get cold. This doesn't come with any washing instructions but I put mine on a normal wash every week along with my bedding and it doesn't shrink, stretch or go out of shape and it keeps it colour, these are very durable but my zebra pink has now got holes in the arm pits from wearing it so much but I sewed these back up a while a go and it's as good as new again. You can get these from most places now, asda, argos, jml, play.com and the price varies JML are the most expensive and thickest of the slankets at £16.99 but mine we're both £10 each and they do me just as well.
