I’m obsessing about this next item from afar. I don’t actually have it. Well, I did have it, for maybe 20 minutes, but it was stolen from me by a family member that shall remain unnamed.
It’s a blanket with a poncho design—a true blanket/throw that can be worn inside or outside. You’re not tangled up in giant sleeves (like those others!) so you can actually use your arms to do things…or simply cuddle with it. It’s incredibly soft and cozy which is perhaps why it was hijacked from me in the wee hours of the night and (ahem) never returned.
The temps are dipping into the teens and single digits, so if you want to score some snuggle points with someone special, this Throwbee is the way to go.
Oh, and BELLA featured the creator of this fab blanket/throw, NJ-based Jessica Mashkevich in May/June issue in an article profiling four savvy biz owners who had the courage to take a “Leap of Faith”.
We are big fans of brilliant ideas and courageous local business owners.
