I have wanted to write this post for months now, but cozy season is here and this week of self-care posts felt like the time to do it. Also, the ChappyWrap is such a perfect gift!
I have to admit, I had reservations about this blanket at first. I thought the styles were too preppy. And also can be a little bit of a snob when it comes to things in my home. I like high quality blankets. Fleece? Really? I turned up my nose. And despite the blankets being SUCH a blogger favorite, I didn’t trust the reviews? Why was everyone so worked up about a fleece blanket!? I will be the first person to admit when I am wrong, and in this case, I was wrong.. very wrong. I regret my earlier judgments on fleece, and I realized this the minute I touched the blanket. YOU GUYS. THE BLANKET IS MAGIC.
So why is it so special? First of all, it’s just this perfect combination of thick and almost heavy, while also being incredibly soft and cozy. I’ve said this before but the only fault I can find with it is that it’s hard to read with it as I always fall asleep.
ChappyWrap is named for Chappaquiddick, aka “Chappy” to locals – it’s a little island off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard and such a special place. I went years ago back when I was living in Boston right after college, and still think back to the time I spent there.. so peaceful. The owners are a mother daughter team – they actually started the company because they missed an old family blanket and could not find one like it anywhere they look. I love that story!
Chappywrap Blanket Review
The ChappyWrap is made from a natural cotton blend: it’s 58% cotton, 35% acrylic, and 7% polyester. They are fully machine washable and dryable (huge if you take it outside, or have kids!). Just wash on cold and then tumble dry on low heat.
There’s no shrinking, pilling, or fuzz – the quality is incredible. Lastly, they come in three different sizes: Original (60″ x 80″), Midi (40″ x 60″) and Mini (30″ x 40″). My preference is the original (I have 3!) but I got my niece Zoe this kids blanket and it’s so cute.
What I Like About The Chappywrap Blanket
It’s so soft
Like so soft. And it’s hard to describe it because this is not the fleece blanket you had in college. It’s soft like fleece but really thick and luxurious.
It’s easy to care for.
I love that you can just throw it in the wash if it gets dirty. This makes them great for pets or kids, but also if you want to take it to the park or the beach, you’re fine. It’s luxurious but in a very liveable way.
I love the designs, especially the STRIPES! My favorites are the yellow stripe, the navy stripe (which I actually ended up giving to my best friend who lives upstairs; she was always stealing it, yes I am the best friend ever), the green plaid, and of course the Cape and Islands one which will always be sentimental for me! I’m also eyeing the buffalo check and the holiday stripe is fab.
The Final Verdict
This is my favorite blanket. The quality is amazing, it’s soft and cozy and luxurious but still practical, and there’s really nothing better than curling up with it at the end of a long day. Chappy wrap blankets are going to be your new favorite blankets. The price is not cheap (the classic style is $135) but you will have it forever. And if for some reason it’s not for you, you can return it within 30 days.
