The Maine Slanket

The Slanket — a polar-fleece blanket with sleeves — was plugged on Boing Boing this weekend. And according to the company's website, it was invented right here in Maine.
One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine's winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation, I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother...And it was born. [Link]
