There are blankets — and then there are the incredible organic “blanquettes” from Yumi and Laurie that are perfect for wrapping yourself up in on a cold winter’s evening in front of a roaring fire and tray of fine cheeses and wine. Of course, I’m being dramatic — these would also make a fine substitute for a robe — but if you’re seriously considering the cheese idea, I’d recommend Brie.
For today’s giveaway, we have two blanquettes from Yumi and Laurie — as enjoyed by celebrities like Jennifer Garner, Hilary Duff, Eric Dane, Sarah Michelle Gellar, David Boreanaz and Shannon Elizabeth. Each one (which look like an oversized plush turkish towel) is made from the highest quality 100% certified organic cotton and bamboo fibers available — a 50/50 mix.
My wife and I have one of these and all summer it’s traveled from our bedroom to the porch swing to the back deck. With winter approaching, I imagine it will lay most of the time on the couch. Truly, it’s a wonderful accessory for any regularly chilly person to have on hand around the house.
Want to win one? Simply leave a comment below telling us how you plan on staying warm this winter — and how a blanquette from Yumi and Laurie might help with that. Two comments will be chosen at random to win. Complete rules and giveaway details for this contest are available here. Good luck!
