Slanket Review and Giveaway
Here is a really great item for a Fall Festival. You can get up early on a Fall morning and wrap up in your Slanket. Or what better way to spend a fall evening then to curl up with a book and a nice hot cup of tea or coffee and relax. The Slanket is a fleece blanket with sleeves. It measures 60" wide by 95" long. And is it ever comfortable! It is 100% Polyester Microfibers, really soft. The sleeves are over-sized so you can move easily when using the Slanket. The Slanket is available in several colors and is also available in kid's sizes and as a travel Slanket. They even have a Siamese Slanket. Nice and cozy for two!
The Slanket Story:
"One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine's winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother...and it was born.
Everyone behind the The Slanket is on the same level when it comes to life. Besides creating a product to make people comfortable and warm, our life goals are not to accumulate mansions, SUV's, expensive watches and closets just for shoes. What we want in life is to travel the world and experience all its cultures while representing humanity positively. Whether surfing in Costa Rica, snowboarding in Austria, or studying language in South America and China, we love to spread our sleeves and let them flap in the wind, giving back in the process. BUT... there is nothing like coming home, wrapping up in THE SLANKET on your own couch and feeling the warmth of your friends and family.
The original Slanket runs $32.99. If you are interested in the Kid's Slanket it is $21.99. And the Siamese Slanket is $40.99. You can order them online at slanket.com. Need a travel Slanket? $24.99 Have you ever been traveling and someone else wants it colder than you do? Bring your Travel Slanket!
