Yumi & Laurie Blanquettes

What's a cross between a robe and a blanket? A ranket? Perhaps, but that doesn't sound as cozy as the "Blanquette" by Yumi & Laurie. How to pronounce it, we couldn't tell you, but we can tell you what it's made out of and where to find one...

The Blanquette is made up of 50% certified organic cotton and 50% bamboo fibers. Apparently it feels kind of like a turkish towel (hence our comparison to a ranket), but is 6'6" x 4'9" in dimension, so you can cuddle up under it. We're not sure if we've ever considered using a towel as a blanket or vice versa, and considering the price ($225) we might just curl up under our Pottery Barn bath sheet and call it a day. The colors and designs are pretty appealing, though. What do you think?
