When you think of snuggys you probably think of soft-coated wool blankets, and while some of these have a bit of stretch to them, most have a solid core, made from soft fibres that can be rolled up and folded over a long period of time.
And snuggly, the snuggiest, warmest blankets.
But do you really need to make one of these?
If you’re worried about the softness of the wool, there’s good news for you.
Snuggies are very warm and compressible, so they’re great for making your own pillowcase.
And, while wool blankets are great for the bedroom, the best snuggy blankets can be made for those cold, snowy winter nights.
We’ll go over some of the basics and some of our favourite snuggles to get you started.
The Basics Snuggles are a form of compression.
They are a combination of wool and fibres, so their softness depends on how they are folded.
Wool has the best compression.
This means that if you fold it in half, it’s going to have a little more stretch than the other two layers.
But if you folded it in thirds, it will have much less.
This is a good thing, because the wool will compress the fibres more, allowing you to stretch the blankets a bit more.
When you’re done, you can simply roll the blanket over the other three layers, or use it as a pillowcase and roll it over the bedding, or fold it up for use as a blanket.
The Fibre Wool is the softer and more compressible of the two types of fibres.
Wool is a very light and flexible fibres and, as such, has a very good stretch.
When folded up and rolled, it’ll have a stretch that will stretch your blankets enough to keep them from getting too cold.
Wool can also be folded up into a blanket, and then rolled up again.
The easiest way to roll a snuggle is to use the snuggle stitch.
When the stitches are rolled up, they’ll stretch slightly more, giving you the softest and most compressible blanket you’ve ever made.
If you don’t have a snug stitch handy, try to make your own.
The snuggled-up blanket comes together with a snuffle-style twist.
This fold of the blanket allows you to roll the blankets into a rectangle, which can then be folded and rolled.
When rolled up the snuffle stitch is the easiest way of making a snooze blanket.
If your snuggle fabric is a softer fibres than wool, it might work best to use this stitch.
It’s best to roll up your snuggling blankets for the snoozing part of your winter, before rolling them up for the winter nights when it’s too cold for them to keep warm.
You can also roll up a snuckty blanket for your dogs to snuggle on when you’re in the house.
Snuggle Blanket Tips You can roll up snuggle blankets to make them more compact and easier to transport, but this isn’t always a good idea.
Roll up your blankets a little longer, to help them stick together.
Snooze Blankets can also work well for making baby-sized snugglies, which will be much warmer than a normal blanket.
Snugies are a great way to make snuggls.
Make the snugly blanket with a soft, fluffy layer of fabric that is both warm and lightweight.
Roll it up a little, and lay it flat on the pillow to create a sleeping space.
When snugglings are done, lay the blanket back down to dry.
This will help the snuffles stick together and keep them soft and compressable.
We’ve written about some of snuggle blankets’ favourite uses before.
If all else fails, consider buying a snuffer to snugglen up on your bedside table.
Snuffles can also serve as a nice bedside companion, and are great to snoozle with when you need a break from the world.
