Chilly Jilly Is a Must-have in Moody Climate and Spring
Do you live in a climate region with a wide range between the daily minimum temperature and maximum temperature or hot outside and chilly AC inside? Then you may be interested in the Chilly Jilly summer essentials. The idea is to have a wrap, wrapper blanket, jacket, lounge pants or gloves in a silk bag small enough to carry around in your purse (see second photo below) to have it handy when needed to stay comfortable.Never let AC make you feel cold.

What I Love About the Scarf
In a neutral color, the blanket works with everything. It can even be styled like a regular scarf and up your look. More on accessorizing with scarves in the guide at the link. Furthermore, it stays in place!
No sliding whatsoever!
The Wrap Is Easy to Carry Along
The little bag (see photo below) measures 5 inch x 7 inch x 2 inch (10 cm x 17.8 cm x 5 cm). The Chilly Jilly comes in 13 different colors. The wrap is large enough (74 inch wide x 23 inch long measured at the center of the back, ~187 cm x 58 cm) to cover the entire upper body, and stays in place (see photos below).

Chilly Jilly Is Perfect for Air Travel
The wrap-in-a-bag concept is very practical. Besides for staying warm in chilly airplanes or the last inning of a late afternoon baseball game, and for comforting the kids, the Chilly Jilly wrap is also great on a romantic evening watching the sunset and the green flash, or for accessorizing an outfit.
How the Fabric Provides the Insulation*
Despite the Chilly Jilly wrap folds small, the double-brushed Venezia fabric did not show any wrinkles when I pulled it out of its bag. This means the wrap will not ruin your style with wrinkles. The wrap is large enough that you can wear it as a stole (see photo that demonstrates the size of the wrap).
How the Chilly Jilly Saved my Evening
The day I wore this wrap as a scarf, I was pretty happy that I had it with me. Temperatures went from in the 50s (10oC) in the afternoon down to the lower 20s (-6.7oC) in the evening. Wrapping the Chilly Jilly wrap around my shoulders over the blazer did the trick to keep me warm on my way home. It saved my evening. The wrap is only $39, i.e. very affordable. I would not want to feel chilly just to save $39. Do you?
Double-brushing permits creation of a thin air-layer in the brushed material. Since air is a weak conductor for heat, this air layer serves as an extra insulation from the chilly environment. By using this physical concept, the fabric can be thin, light and soft, fold small, but still keep you warm.
