    Happy Fluffy Anna

      AT A GLANCE Brand / weave: HappyFluffy / handwoven Fibre: 100% cotton Measurements: 370cm long (plus 6cm fringes), 69.5cm wide, approx. 226gsm Key words: Thin, airy, mouldable, vibrant     You may recall that I recently tested another of HappyFluffy’s wraps, Diamond Coal.
