So you want to be a mermaid, but in the comfort of your own home, whilst sat on the sofa. Well that is totally possible now, with the help of a mermaid blanket. Thats right, you can now be a mermaid on dry land with your very own mermaid blanket.
We review some of the best mermaid blankets, cheapest and most comfortable mermaid tails on Amazon and the internet so that this winter, you can keep warm and be a mermaid. We have noticed a big trend in the US recently when we heard about mermaid tail blankets and realised why these products were so good and on the up. They aren’t just warm, made of comfortable fabrics and materials, but they make you look like a mermaid or merman, from the comfort of your own sofa.
The clocks have recently gone back and as well as the days being shorter, they are also increasingly colder. We always have a couple of throws on top of and under our sofa for extra cold evenings. We’ve recently added a few mermaid blankets to these and it was the best decision ever. When we’re relaxing by ourselve’s or with the children we can all cuddle up with our own mermaid blanket.
Buying Guide a Mermaid Blanket
You can look just like little mermaid with a mermaid blanket, some of them are the same colour as Aerials tail. Others have larger looking scales for a more realistic mermaid look and others we have added to our best mermaid blankets list are knitted and crotchet’d and just look and feel of pure warmth and comfort. There should be something you are after, if you are after a specific design or colour, just email us and hopefully we can help.
Materials Used In Mermaid Blanket Tails
Each product we have reviewed offers a different type of material used in the creation of it. Some use acrylic, others wool and cotton, some a mix of fabric materials but all of them have comfort and warmth in mind. If you are after a vegan mermaid blanket and don’t wish to use animal products, there are a couple of choices above, the Cloud Castle mermaid tail is vegan and uses acrylic and cotton only.
Mermaid Blankets for Adults and Children
Most of the blankets we have reviewed are for both adults and children. This means that they can be used and worn by anyone really. They may be a bit large on the smaller people or children using them but that should add to the extra warmth and you’ll only look like a wrinkly mermaid anyway as the material bunches up.
If you are after a blanket specifically for babies or children, we have linked to a pattern from Amazon below and we have a couple of reviews up top which should be great for the little ones. If you don’t want to leave your little boy out or a nephew, you can look below at an awesome little shark blanket that we think would look great with a mermaid blanket.
Taking Care of Your Mermaid Blanket
The best thing to do once you receive your mermaid blanket is to wash it on a cold delicate wash, or hand wash it. Most of the mermaid blankets recommend not machine drying but instead hang drying indoors or outside. This will ensure that your new blanket smells as good as it can and that any dust or anything that may have been picked up in transit to you is removed.
After A Funky Blanket for a Boy?

1. FADFAY Mermaid Tail Blanket Reviews
The Fadfay mermaid tail blanket is one of the warmest on the market with its close knit pattern and closed tail. The Fadfay mermaid tail aims to help anyone become their inner mermaid, read on for more details.
The Fadfay mermaid blanket is made from a super soft wool that makes for a thick and heavy tail. The yarn is woven into a closely knitted pattern keeping you nice and warm in a lovely mermaid tail that feels a little like a snug sleeping bag. The fin itself takes the stripey pattern of a cowl neck jumper. If you have cold feet this mermaid is great for you, the tail does not allow you to put your feet right into the fin but they fit snuggly reaching the top of the fin allowing you to feel even more mermaid like with one flick of the feet your fin will flutter. This however also means you cannot get your feet the whole way through to walk with it on but do real mermaids walk anyway?
The Fadfay mermaids tail fits both adults and children, perfect for a mermaid obsessed, little swimmer in the family or even yourself. Due to the large opening to the back of the tail the adult tail will fit you no matter your shape or size. Well suited to my favourite mermaid quote “If your thighs touch you are one step closer to being a mermaid”. I would also recommend for children over the age of 10 or if your child is particular tall for their age to go for the adult size instead.
Be aware the mermaid blanket you receive maybe different from the photos or colour it states and those described as blue for example maybe a mixture of blue and purple, have a good zoom in to the image to check that it doesn’t an extra colour you do not want. Also I would recommend hand washing this particular mermaid tail due to the wool thickness and tail size.
2. Multicolour Mermaid Tail Blanket Reviews
The Multicolour Mermaid Tail Blanket is a beautiful yet versatile all year round kind of tail. Great for those who get cold no matter the season. Check out our more detailed review below.
The multicolour mermaid tail blanket comes in a variety of colours, I especially love the multicolour design with its stripes and zigzag patterns. Making a lovely present through out the year as the material is warm yet breathable. If you are someone who is cold whatever the season this will definitely brighten up your mood.
This particular mermaid tail blanket also has an opening at the bottom of the fin to allow you to put your feet through even walk (shhh we won’t tell anyone if you want to be a mermaid who uses their feet too wink)
I would recommend once you do receive your multicolour mermaid tail that you wash it, it is machine washable and dryable. Wash just on its own on its first wash. As the multicolour mermaid tail blanket is so easy to clean you can take it on outdoor adventures such as camping or sitting at the beach.
The multicolour mermaid blanket is great value for money, with plenty of room and you don’t need to wriggle out of it if you need to get off the sofa to grab something.
3. Hughapy Mermaid Tail Blanket Crochet and Mermaid Blanket for Adult
The Hughapy Mermaid Tail allows you to relax in some of the cosiest fish scales you will ever find! Keep reading for our review on this lovely knitted tail.
The Hughapy knitted mermaid tail is made from a soft wool and acrylic combined material, perfect to snuggle up in. The beautiful fish scales really make you feel like you are wearing a mermaid tail and with the variety of colour choices you can pick your favourite.
Although the picture shows a pretty bag the mermaids tail will actually arrive with you in a vacuum packed container with scented sachets. Not to worry, just give your new mermaids tail a cold water machine wash and hang it to dry before becoming a mermaid for the first time.
The Hughapy mermaid tail is suitable for both adults and children, even for adults it can be quite roomy so if the mermaid tail is for a child you might want to look at child designed mermaid tails for them not to feel lost in it.
As there is no frame or wire within the tail you will need to flap your tail once in a while to keep its shape otherwise you will find you will loose the mermaid effect.
If you are after a comfortable and roomy, beautifully knitted mermaid tail, fish scales and all this is the one for you.
4. iEFiEL Offwhite Knitted Mermaid Tail Blanket Reviews
This is a lovely multicolour mermaid blanket by iEFiEL which we have had the pleasure of trying out. This one is made up of soft pastel colours and feels very comfortable. We tested it for a few evenings to see if it kept us and the kids warm.
What a fantastically lovely thing, this mermaid blanket was perfect for all members of the family, from the kids to the grown ups. We used this on cold evenings snuggled up together whilst watching films sat on the sofa. We read some of the reviews about sizing being a problem but we had no issues with this one. Although we didn’t put our feet through the end so weren’t fully surrounded by the blanket. We only used it with the tail over us and wrapped around our torso and were completely happy with the warmth it provided and with how comfortable it was.
As you can see, at the bottom of the mermaids tail it does go quite thin and narrow, which may be uncomfortable for some to get there feet through but we found it to be ok without doing this, others may want more room down there though.
The blanket is not the thickest out of the ones we have tested with the family members and kids but it helped we were all sat on the same sofa together, giggling away at how awesome we all looked. We would probably look for other mermaid tails if we were after something to use by ourself and to keep us extra warm this winter. If you have a colder house then a thicker knitted tail would be better suited for you.
All in all, we are very impressed with this mermaid blanket by iEFiEL and we will definately be purchasing a few of these for christmas presents for the family.
5. Tiffany Blue Mermaid Tail Blanket Reviews
One of the best looking mermaid blankets we have reviewed and feel great to touch. Also one of the larger mermaid blankets we have used, so should be good for people of all heights.
We have had the green mermaid blanket for a while now and it’s been great. The design looks great and the way it has been crocheted actually looks like scales that a mermaid would have. It’s made of polyester and cotton so is vegan friendly and there aren’t any animal products in this.
You can wash it in a machine but we would recommend a delicate setting or even better, hand wash it in a sink with some soft washing powder or liquid.
The mermaid blanket by Cloud Castle looks a little bit different to the others, the tail at the end is quite large which adds to the look we are going for using this product and also the knit pattern is very pleasing to the eye. It is not the thickest of materials or blankets but does the job for us if we have our pyjamas on underneath.
The end of the mermaid tail is enclosed on this colour but we looked in to other colours made by the same company and they all seem to look a little different, so may be made differently too.
