One thing that winter has taught me, despite the increasingly variable temperatures, is that the cold finally comes! And every year I learn new ways to keep warm, especially at home, trying not to waste too much energy. Not just for the money on the bill, but because a little ‘good on this planet of ours I would like to make it.
So I learned to cover myself, to use slippers (those with hair are my best friends!), But I especially began to nurture a particular interest (read also mania) for blankets.
Looking for the perfect blanket
I know, the image of a blanket is immediately old: layers of quilts that hide you or strange intertwined dozens of bright colors to put on your knees. Something that in short does not make me absolutely want to invite friends home, despite the cold.
That’s why I started looking for something different, a thick and cozy blanket, preferably made of wool, but not too serious and old-style. And so I discovered the magical world of oversize handmade blankets. And more precisely the Super Chunky Knit Blanket, a real madness.
Super Chunky Knit Blanket: where to buy it
We are talking about a blanket of 1.20 m, nice and welcoming. The peculiarity is this huge yarn, which intertwines creating a sort of oversized version of the typical woven wool blankets. The effect is impacting, but above all the sensation of heat is remarkable.
It is also a great piece of design suitable for use on your sofa, leaving it there even if you decide to spend the evening at home with friends. Indeed, surely many friends will steal it from you!
Around you find many tutorials on how to make it, since it doesn’t require special tools but only the huge yarns and the arms. But because of my inability to create weaves, I took mine on Banggood.
I know, now you’ve also become blankets maniacs!
