Bear hug

Familiar with the Teddy Bear blanket? As the nights get colder and you’re keeping the thermostat on low or you’ve turned the heating off, this amazing blanket could make really good company while you’re watching TV. Made of lightweight fleece it’s unbelievably warm… but why does it keep you so warm? Well the warmth comes from the heat of your body, not the blanket and the  blanket needs to trap that warm air. Both wool and fleece fabrics do this equally well, but fleece so much lighter than wool and, let’s face it, cuddlier too. It’s not expensive either, but you should shop around to get the best deal.
