The Polar Vortex has left people of the Twin Cities searching for any way to warm up! You could wear a warm coat, a second pair of socks, keep hot coffee at the ready all day long. Or you can just cozy up in a coat, that doubles as a blanket! It’s just one of a few unique products Twin Cities Live Reporter Kelli Hanson found to heat things up!
This Minnesota mother-daughter company wants to keep you warm this winter! They make and design unique, fashionable cold-weather apparel. Like the Minne-Skirt. It’s literally a jacket for your behind! Want to warm up even more? Try their Blankoat. The reversible, 900 down fill coat can be used as a coat, or a blanket. And their Mohair socks, made from the first cutting of wool from young Angora coats are super warm, yet breathable. They wick away moisture and some Minnesotan’s choose to wear them all year long.
