Army Quilt

The quilt with soft arms to snuggle around your head

It is difficult to get a rectangular quilt to fit snugly around your head and chin while you are sleeping. If you pull it up too far, you will suffocate, but if you push it back down, your neck is uncovered. And if you want to stretch your arms out behind your head while you sleep, your arms will be out in the cold.

But the Army Quilt will change all that. This high-quality, ultra-soft comforter has four appendages on one side. Two are short, and can perfectly snuggle around your neck and cheeks but without smothering you too much, and two are long, able to lay on top of your arms if you lie in a stretched-out position.

It looks something like this:

So soft and cozy!

       Not entirely convinced that "army" is the best way to describe something that is "soft and cozy," or vice versa.

       I could've called it "Crabby Quilt", but that didn't sound so cozy, either...

       I bunned it cause it sounds like a good solution to the blanket about the face problem. However, Army blankets are horrid scratchy things so maybe the name needs work. crabby quilt is better. (i own a store that sells nothing but crab associated things called "that crab store". so umm.. i am biased)

       Sorry, gotta ask! Does it stop you ahem, playing with yourself? Kinda Unnatural

       No, you just don't use the arms if you don't want. Or...you could place the *arms* in position and leave your arms outside. Whatever pleases you.

       Would you have to position all of these pieces on yourself perfectly, or are the arms more like jacket sleeves?

       There is a British simile about the adhesive qualities of army blankets - does this apply to army quilts?

       The Wanket - same as Slanket, only with an extra hole, covered by a flap

       Wow, [jutta] you amaze me. To notice this product and to remember some obscure idea here at the HB. Cool!
