Lockdown guidelines coupled with many Brits continuing to work from home means that the nation’s energy bills could rise by up to 18 per cent this winter, totalling £1.9 billion I additional nationwide*.
If that statistic sends shivers up your spine – especially after the expense of Christmas – fear not, as the sleep experts at Silentnight have created Snugsie; a super soft teddy fleece wearable blanket, with accompanying foot pocket, that keeps those wearing it toasty from head to toe whether they’re working from home, shopping or streaming from the sofa, or simply having a cheeky afternoon nap.
The warm and snug product means, that depending on the weather, the heating can be turned down or off entirely – reducing those energy bills. What’s more, it’s also easily stored – and readily accessible – as it folds in on itself to form a cushion that can be kept on hand for chilly moments.

Hayley Chaytor, spokesperson for Silentnight, said: “We know that many of our customers will be worried about rising energy bills – particularly in January – as ongoing Covid restrictions mean they and their families spend more time at home, be it working or relaxing.
“That’s why we developed Snugsie, our cosiest blanket yet that guarantees comfort from top to toe. The teddy fleece fabrics retains heat and ensures those wearing it remain toasty and content even while the outdoor temperatures take their inevitable January turn for the worst.”
Snugsie is supersized, so one size fits all and completely covers those wearing it – ensuring that cute, toasty feeling, whatever the temperature. The blanket itself is machine washable at 40 degrees Celsius and is available in three shades; silver, charcoal and rose.
