Winter is probably my least favorite season. It is cold...there is snow..and the Fibro hates it! Which means my body is in extra pain! For the rare times that we need to go outside for things, I need a way to keep warm, but still be able to function like a normal person. lol We love being outdoors, with the weather turning colder, I definitely have to have something extra to keep me warm.
So far this blanket has done the job! One side is fabric, like the lining of a coat, and the other is a wind breaker style material, also like a lot of coats. When I wrap this around me, I start to get warm quickly. It is so nice. It fits about half of me, so I use it as extra protection for my legs and sometimes the top half if I am really cold!
It folds up and comes with a strap to keep it rolled up. Which you then put into the storage bag provided. I am bad at folding and rolling, but I find it pretty easy to stuff this blanket back in the storage bag. The bag closes and it is pretty small and easy to store. It won't take up much space in your closet, back seat, or trunk.
We leave it in the car. That way, if we ever need it, it will be right there ready to go! I have had a few compliments on it so far. everyone seems to like it just as much as I do. It seems to be made well and of quality materials. I can't find any strings hanging down and the stitching looks really good.
I haven't gotten it dirty yet, but I can't imagine it would be much different from washing your coat! It is a pretty nice size as well, and you could possibly even use it on a twin or toddler bed as a blanket! Possibly even a blanket while camping or a sleep over!
