Another shopper who took the plunge said: "I love mine, it's so warm and soft."

And one shopper said: "I've Bought one for me and both the kids, both me and my daughter work from home and they’ll be lovely and cosy during the winter."

But some shoppers have warned customers to wash the product before first use.

In response to one shopper saying that "the fluff comes out of them and goes everywhere," another shopper said: "I had exactly the same thing, nightmare, then read instructions which said to wash before use – oops! They've been fine since washing."

But other shoppers also noted on the Facebook group that they've managed to buy the same blanket elsewhere for less.

One shopper said they got one for £11 in Sainsbury's and another said they paid £10 with at Tesco with Clubcard prices.

The attraction to cheap wearable blankets comes after energy prices for the average household rose from £1,971 to £2,500 a year on October 1.

And households are looking at cheaper ways to stay warm – instead of relying on their central heating.

Energy suppliers are also helping those most in need and The Sun exclusively revealed that Octopus Energy is handing out free electric blankets to some of its 3.1million customers to help keep them warm this winter.

From Monday, Octopus customers will be able to fill in an online form to apply for an electric blanket.

Other suppliers are offering monetary discounts to soften the bill hit while energy prices stay high.

Shell Energy recently announced that it will give thousands of customers an extra £150 to help them pay for bills this winter.

The energy giant will do this by boosting the £150 warm home discount payment for all 157,000 customers who get the help.

It means thousands of billpayers will get £300 in total.

The Sun is also offering you the chance to win an air fryer to help you cut your energy bills.

The winter help comes at the same time that households could be paid to use their appliances at off-peak hours this winter.
