Toronto designers invent blanket-wrap clothing to wear when dining outdoors
With indoor dining in Toronto banned and temperatures dropping, businesses are pulling out all the stops to keep their customers warm.
Basically a wrap with armholes, the new piece is being described as a must-add to your "social distancing wardrobe."
It's made from a mix of materials like wool and mohair, and comes with a drawstring neckline and pouch pocket.
Each blanket wrap is one-of-a-kind, and can also be layered over bulky items like a sweater, or even a puffer jacket.
With the pandemic keeping people inside, and winter fast approaching, Comrags co-designer Judy Cornish says the brand wanted to "encourage people to sit outside and look at the sky for the first time in their life."

"We are trying to approach it as a creative challenge and move forward," says Cornish.
The blanket-wrap costs $345, and is part of Comrag's limited edition Fall/Winter 2020 line. You can buy it online or at their Dundas West flagship store.
