Our blanket is waterproof on the one side and has lovely printed fleece on the inside or plain if you like. But the great revolution is the hood; it will protect you against wind, rain, snow or whatever you come in contact with when outside.

They are great for outdoor events like music festivals but can be used anywhere, anytime. You can use your Shmangle blanket in the summer or winter. It will become your year round friend.

The bright, colourful blankets all have the same multi-coloured stripe fleece lining, with either red, blue , green water-resistant outer layer.

Looking after your blanket: Blankets are machine washable but please, use a cool wash!

What does "Shmangle" mean ? While there is a more generic meaning ( check out Urban Dictionary ) Shmangle to us is that pleasant feeling of relaxation you get after a snooze in the sun on a warm blanket ( with perhaps a glass of wine inside you )

Where did you come up with the idea ? Almero dreamt it up lying on a beanbag in the warm sun many years ago ( with perhaps a glass of wine inside him )

"Hi, I recently just ordered my first ever Shmangle blanket as I'll soon be attending the Oxygen festival in Ireland and I received it yesterday. I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks. It is BRILLIANT! All my friends are jealous, and if I didn't have one I'd be jealous too!! Delivery was very quick, and it was just all round a brilliant purchase. Well done on the great job, and thank you!"

"Craig, Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent service, my Shmangle arrived in perfect time for my festival, all my friends where very jealous! you're on to a winner!, Thanks"
Caroline, Norwich

"I bought a shmangle at Glastonbury around 5 years ago and take it everywhere with me. This year it got trashed, covered in mud and drenched. My sister suggested I bin it but that was not an option! I stuffed it back in its bag and finally got round to washing it today. One wash and it's as good as new and ready for the British Grand Prix this weekend. This year was the muddiest Glasto I've ever known and the shmangle took it all. A truly great product, well done! Kind Regards"

(thank you all for letting me quote you on my website, its wonderful to get so much nice feedback.)

Why ? We like selling Shmangles, they are such a fun product. When we're sick to death of computers, we can think about festivals and blankets for a while. Then we can go to the pub.

Who ? Complementary Solutions is one person - Craig Stretch - but its also a network of partners, people and friends that has kept us as a strong business with turnover in excess of 100,000 pounds per year for more than 10 years.

Where ? We are based in SW London, but we supply Shmangles across the UK, and occasionally in Europe and the USA
