Reading without cold shivers
It started with Inger Larsson being cold while reading, and ended with a specially designed reading blanket.
Blanket with arms
Inger Larsson felt cold when she was reading and her blanket did not seem to keep her warm enough. Her arms got particularly cold, so she started wearing her dressing gown back-to-front to warm them up. That did keep her arms warm, so Inger Larsson got the idea of creating the ultimate reading blanket. She came up with her own design for a blanket with arms, where the arms are inserted from the front. That means you can read wrapped up in a blanket, without letting the cold air in. The blanket is made out of fleece, so it is both warm and light. It was registered at the Swedish Patent and Registration Office in 2002.
