Slanket: What is it?

Filed under: Just for You, Home Base

The Slanket was created by University of Maine alum Gary Clegg. Trying to shield his arms from the harsh northern winters while still having the ability to flip channels on his television, Clegg incorporated the sleeves of a shirt or sweater with the warm of a blanket. The Slanket features oversized sleeves attached to a large, machine-washable blanket.

The Slanket comes in a variety of colors and patterns ranging from Alaskan blue to a Safari print. There are also several types of Slankets for customers to choose from including a Slanket for children as well as a Slanket for two. Clegg's product has emerged as a rival to another sleeved blanket called the Snuggie.
