A Japanese firm has just unveiled a strange new blanket that resembles a favorite local noodle type. 

The Udon for Sleeping blanket, created by Kyoto-based Golden Field, aims to provide its users with a sound night’s sleep with the help of its gigantic noodle strands. As its name suggests, the tentacled sheet is inspired by the popular thick noodles from Japan.

One of the designers was looking at a plate of udon noodles when the idea came to mind, that a grid of blanket “noodles” would allow better comfort and heat distribution than a solid rectangular blanket that simply locks one into a configuration.

To get the desired warmth, the Udon for Sleeping blanket is meant to be paired with a mesh top cover. The spaces between the strands provide some breathing space and additional support for your arms, legs, or an extra pillow to hug. Such a set-up creates the optimal condition that keeps its user warm but also cool enough so that one does not wake up sweaty in the middle of the night.
