Multi-part wrap around blanket

Warning!! May disturb dust bunnies and other under-bed monsters

A blanket composed of several two to three foot wide panels connected with zippers or buttons, allowing it to be made arbitrarily wide. With enough panels it can be made a lot wider than the bed, and its ends connected to make a continuous loop that wraps completely but loosely around the bed.

That way, when your partner rolls over and tugs your section of blanket away, a new section pulls up from under the bed for you.

       "Loop blanket" is almost crazy enough to actually sell. Requires clear space under the bed; most (large beds) have legs in more places than just the corners.

       Good point. If the bed frame couldn’t accommodate it, maybe a spacer of some kind right under the mattress would work to make a channel to pass the blanket through. Easier than replacing the entire bed frame, and would not disturb the dust bunnies and other under-bed monsters.   

       Otherwise, it might be enough to just stack a lot of blanket segments on the floor next to one’s own side of the bed. No need for a loop, as long as you have enough that your partner can’t take ALL of them.

       For it to move smoothly (don't know why you need it to though) you need to elevate the mattress and add rollers. Otherwise a simple loop without buttons or zippers will do the same thing. Like that kid's weighted blanket but lighter and with out the bit on the end.   

       How about just a giant sleeping bag both partners can get into on opposite sides of the bed? It can have venting flaps with zippers for varying insulation.

       [+] I like it.   

       As for giant sleeping bags, part of the inspiration for this idea did come from zip-together skeeping bags.
