If you follow me on Instagram, you know by now that I (and Millie, and J) have a mild obsession with ChappyWrap blankets. I remember discovering the brand maybe a year and a half or so ago and wondering what really made them different from the other throws we had at home…I knew they were uniquely oversized and came in gorgeous patterns, but I wasn’t sure what really set them apart until Victoria told me that trust her, they’re inexplicably cozy, well-made, and unlike any other blanket. Victoria’s recommendations don’t lead me astray so I ordered one soon after and it was love at first sight (or cuddle)–these are truly the best, you guys, and I don’t say that lightly! We joke that Millie better get her own mini for Christmas because ours is her favorite place to sleep and I can safely say we have never owned a better throw.
So today, I’m chatting with the talented Beth and Christina of ChappyWrap–read on to learn how they got their start, what makes their blankets different, and what’s in store for Black Friday…let’s just say these should be at the top of your gifting list and this is the perfect week to buy!

Tell us about your backgrounds before starting ChappyWrap.

Christina: I officially joined ChappyWrap a year and a half ago. I am actually licensed as a speech-language pathologist and have a background in working with kids with severe special needs! So joining ChappyWrap was a big (exciting!) change for me.
What sets ChappyWraps apart from other blankets on the market?
Our blankets are made from a high-quality natural cotton blend (60% cotton, 40% fill fiber). They are woven on a loom and the yarns are twisted so the natural cotton is next to your skin. The cotton makes them super soft and cozy, while the fill fiber makes them durable and machine washable and dryable (they’ll stay just as soft!). They are also oversized (they measure 60×80 and will fit on a queen bed), so they make a great extra-long throw blanket perfect for covering up from head to toe, or snuggling up with someone else.
