The cosy season is here and there's no better remedy for the chillier days than snuggling up on the sofa under a soft blanket.

A traditional blanket will keep your legs warm when you're sitting down, but how do you keep toasty when you need to get up to make another cuppa?

With this in mind, we're happy to report that the hoodie blanket, a large jumper with a hood that doubles up as a blanket and described as your "new comfort buddy" is currently top of the Amazon clothing bestseller list. And it has been for a couple of years now.

Amazon shoppers have been raving about the unusual clothing item that has gathered more than 24,000 reviews with an overall score of 4.5 stars. Impressive by any fashion standards.

The fluffy hoodie, which costs a bargain £15, comes in one size that fits all. It is available in a range of colours including blush pink and charcoal grey.

This is a much cheaper alternative to the popular Oodie, which can cost up to £94.

Essentially an oversized blanket, featuring a beautiful soft touch outer fabric and luxurious sherpa lining with sleeves and a hood. It comes with a spacious pocket to store your phone and snacks, too.

Perfect for cosy nights in or when you need to peel yourself from the sofa this winter, its design ensures you won't need to drag the blanket along the floor. Due to the one size element and its versatile colour variation, this cosy hoodie is also perfect to send as a gift to friends or any family member.

Amazon customers are raving about the hoodie, which is easy to clean, too – simply pop it in the machine on a cold wash.

One said: "Plenty of space and snuggle for a UK size14. Really soft and comfortable to wear lounging around at home (a lot of that going on at the moment!) but it is very very warm, looking forward to snuggling more in colder weather. Much more comfortable and easy than a dressing gown or using blankets. Pretty colour dusky pink too."

Another reviewer wrote: "I bought one for my teenage daughter who wears a size 12, she loves it and puts it on over whatever she's wearing when it gets chilly in the evenings. It's soft and snuggly and very comfy. My older son saw it and joked that he wanted one, he wears 2xl and tried hers on, it fits him with plenty of room to spare so I ordered another for him! I can see them being worn all the time when winter arrives. Great item."

And one satisfied customer raved: "I got this as a surprise gift after looking at the very expensive Oodie, seems very much the same thing for about the quarter of the price. I really like it, but warm at times being summer but nice to grab when there's a chill and you want to snuggle up in front of TV. Gonna get a couple more for family. Values great, quality is very very good for the price, I like and oversized hoodie, this is that and more."
