COMFORT MOMENTS by Maureen Goldman

Posted by Beth LaSala on Wed, Mar 30, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

Maureen Goldman is a writer living in Atlanta. She writes: "I am a firm believer in the power of the 'comfort moment' for restoration of mind, body and soul.  A comfort moment is structured time when you can sit quietly surrounded by feel-good things. Our cottage-style home is full of nooks where you can curl up with a book, take a little nap, or have a cup of coffee in peace. These spots become comfort moments when you add a favorite scented candle, a soft blanket, a little vase filled with backyard flowers. Any collection of things that makes the experience feel like a slow exhale; an 'Ahh' feeling.

XOXO_Blanket_1477_x_1716_pixel_size_photo_Matt_and_Emma_Goldman_.jpg

Every morning I sit in the window seat in our kitchen with the newspaper, a cup of coffee, and a ChappyWrap blanket resting on my lap. Sometimes my dog, Lance, hops up and sits on his own ChappyWrap "Bow Wow" Mini Blanket. I watch the sun rise and I give thanks. One of my favorite comfort moments includes taking a glass of wine, a candle, hand balm, fleecy socks and a ChappyWrap "XOXO" Blanket out on the porch so I can sit with the stars. The ChappyWrap blanket is the key to my comfort. It's finer and more plush than a fleece blanket with a softness that feels rich and velvety. Being wrapped in a ChappyWrap feels like a big, warm hug. Last night I found my son lounging on a bean bag chair wrapped to the chin in the ChappyWrap "Elephant" Blanket. He looked like he was in a cocoon.

We have ChappyWraps all over our house, and they are loved by all. My daughter, who rows on her college crew team, asked for the ChappyWrap "Crew Oars" Blanket for Christmas. My son wants one as a housewarming gift when he moves into his first apartment. The ChappyWrap "Counting Sheep" is our favorite baby gift. If you asked me for a list of the most comforting things in our home, ChappyWrap Blankets would be at the top of the list. Suffice it to say that no comfort moment in our home would be complete without a ChappyWrap Blanket."

Blanket Buying Guide 2015

Posted by Beth LaSala on Mon, Nov 30, 2015 @ 12:10 PM

Just imagine the huge number of Blankets in the World. What is it that makes certain blankets Special Blankets? Whether you are buying blankets for yourself or are looking for Blanket Gifts, what criteria shoud you use to determine which blankets are extraordinary? Blankets are large pieces of fabric used for warmth BUT when it comes to blankets, they are not all created equal.

 

NYC_ChappyFull_11.jpg

IMPORTANT FEATURES TO CONSIDER WHEN BLANKET BUYING:

  • Quality Matters -The manufacturing process and the materials used affect the quality of the finished product. Cotton blend material holds up well when washed repeatedly for excellent durability. Cotton weave creates insulation for body heat while allowing air to circulate for the perfect amount of warmth. Cotton, a natural fiber, eliminates the common problems that occur with synthetic fibers (fleece, polyester, microfiber and acrylic) like static, pilling, and the tendency to trap hairs and dust.
  • Blanket Size Matters -Not too big, not too small. Big enough to cover you head to toe, but managable enough to take with you everywhere you go. 60" x 80" is the perfect size. Big enough for two! Big enough to use on a bed!
_MG_5234.jpg
  • Machine Washable -Some blankets are dry clean only and some blankets change their texture when washed. Cotton blend blankets stay soft and fluffly when washed repeatedly without pilling or shrinking.
  • Wicking -Blankets made from natural fibers like cotton, wick moisture away from your body to keep you warm, cozy and dry without causing you to overheat.
  • Blankets vs. Throws -While many blankets are hidden under your comforter, throws are meant to be seen! Throw blankets have Home Decorating features. The perfect blanket can accomplish many things: providing great comfort, keeping people warm, changing the look of a room with a splash of color or a personal theme. Brighten up your surroundings or tone them down. Sports, Nautical, Animals, Flowers, Stars, Tartan Plaids, Classic Fair Isle and more...see all designs here http://www.chappywrap.com

How can you find the BEST Blankets? You may be looking for something soft and warm or you may be looking for a blanket that is more than just a piece of fabric. Is there one Perfect Blanket? Too small is not good, too scratchy never works. The perfect blanket provides comfort but also makes a statement about your interests, and the things you LOVE. Quality Material Matters and Size Matters. There is nothing better than curling up with the perfect banket to read or watch TV on a chilly night. Happiness is a warm, cozy blanket. You're going to love how ChappyWrap Blankets make you feel. Comfort yourself, comfort the ones you LOVE...
