After a sellout success last winter, Aldi has done us all a favour and brought back their infinitely popular heated electric blanket for the ultimate cosy WFH set up.

Whether your desk is (still) your kitchen table or you’re spending more nights in than normal (so that’s all of us), blanket season has taken on a whole new level of importance in 2020. Yes you could invest in some swanky expensive throws that cost as much as a new outfit, but why do that when you could get a £35 electric heated fleecy throw blanket?

Back by popular demand, Aldi’s heated electric blanket is back on the shelves in three gorgeous colours: dark grey, light grey and cream. The double layer blanket is made from a super soft flannel fleece, making it the ultimate companion for chilly WFH days and nights in on the sofa. It can even be transformed into a sleeping bag, with pockets for your legs and feet to keep you extra toasty on the chilliest of winter days.

Electric blankets went out of fashion for a while, partly because of the fire hazard horror stories, but they are now firmly back in style as one of the hottest (pardon the pun) homeware accessories for the winter season. For anyone who is still dubious about how safe electric blankets are, Aldi’s come with the automatic overheating protection that is standard of most modern electric blankets these days, which means if it gets too hot it will simply turn itself off.

It also has 9 temperature levels and timer options and a digital controller with display, plus it’s totally machine washable – just disconnect the detachable lead cable.

Aldi says: ‘Keep toasty and comfortable on colder evenings with this Kirkton House Heated Electric Blanket. This stylish double layer soft flannel fleece heated blanket looks as good as it feels, and can even be turned into a sleeping bag! With 9 temperature levels with overheat protection to suit your needs, whether you are relaxing for the evening with a good book or snuggling down on a sofa with a classic film, this heated throw is just what you need.’

The Aldi electric heated blanket is available to pre-order online now for delivery from 22 November – but hurry, each colourway is selling out fast!
