It’s hard to predict the temperature on a plane, but carry-on limits can make it tough to bring along a blanket. Enter the Kelor wrap blanket. It’s light enough to wear around your neck as a scarf, and once you’re on the plane will easily unfold into a stretchy cover. You’ll feel like you’re cozied up into your softest, most well-loved T-shirt. And just like that tee, you can throw it straight into your washing machine once you get home for no-fuss cleaning. Pick from this soft green and four other muted tones.
