The Slanket is one of those gifts you will wish you had of gifted to yourself.
Before we know it the cold of Winter will be upon us. Blankets are among the most helpful way to stay warm on a cold Winter’s night. The problem with a blanket though is the moment you reach for a drink, TV remote, popcorn etc, that warmth is lost.
Outside of wearing a housecoat, there is another solution. The Slanket is a blanket with over-sized sleeves that allows the wearer to cocoon themselves in warmth, while leaving their hands free for texting, reaching out for the remote and having their favorite drinks and snacks. A Slanket also offers an extra wide collar for added warmth.
For those of us who spend a lot of time at the computer like I do, you know that blankets and computers don’t go well together, because you have to expose your arms to get at the keys. The Slanket is definitely the answer.
Made out of polyester microfiber, the Slanket is soft to the touch, lightweight and thicker than that other blanket with sleeves. (You know the one on dollar store shelves across Canada. A reminder you get what you pay for.)
