This mermaid tail blanket is the flipping best thing we’ve ever seen!

Find your sea legs with one of these cosy crochet mermaid tail blankets

Real-life Ariels can find their sea legs this winter thanks to this mermaid tail blanket.

Yes, you read that correctly – say no to Christmassy throws and faux-fur blankets and opt for one of these unique crochet cosies instead!

Etsy seller Cass James Designs has created hand knit tails that have us lusting after wintery afternoons washed ashore on the sofa.

The blankets have gone down a storm on social media and have everyone dreaming of life under the sea…

The fun blankets are designed with a large split to snuggle in to and wrap around and are finished with a large fin with ribbed detail. The design comes in two shades – pink and purple – with elements of blue running through them to look like scales on a tail.

Fin fun for all the family, these designs are made to order and available for toddlers, children and adults so everyone can snuggle down together for a marathon of The Little Mermaid whilst looking like Ariel.

Prices range from £66 to £132 and will take a lengthy eight weeks to produce.

It all sounds flipping fun to us.

Other crochet designs from Cass James Designs include hats, ponchos, bags and cardigans for children and adults alike.
