Have a 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 cosy company while you’re watching TV. Made of lightweight super-soft fleece, it’s unbelievably warm… but why? Well, the warmth comes from the heat of your body, not the blanket but the blanket traps that warm air. Both wool and fleece fabrics do this equally well, but fleece is so much lighter than wool and, let’s face it, cuddlier too. It’s not an expensive item, but shop around to get the best deal.
