Mermaid tail blankets everywhere! If you have the internet, you have seen the rage with these clever things. Hey, who can argue the genius idea of making a blanket into a mermaid tail? Coming home after a long day of swimming in your mermaid tail to snuggle up on the couch in one of these bad boys sounds like a dream.
What is your favorite mermaid tail blanket?
I know what mine is! If you are in the market to buy, here are a few suggestions and tips:
Crochet Mermaid Tail Blanket
These are my favorite! The crochet mermaid tail blankets are a lighter and more airy fabric. You don’t get to hot, and they are flexible to move around in. There is a slit in the back rather than the sleeping bag style which I prefer. I also like how the feet have a small opening for some wiggle room near the fluke.

Fleece Mermaid Tail Blanket
If you live in colder weather I suggest a double sided minky fleece mermaid tail blanket. The fabric designs are more versatile compared to the crochet blankets and work better for Kids. I highly recommend getting a tail blanket with the ability to insert your feet into the flukes. Be aware, this is more of a sleeping bag design and doesn’t have the slit in the back so get cozy!

Fleece Mermaid Tail Blanket on Etsy
This is your basic fleece blanket and the selections are endless.
Do your research for the quality of fabric. The basic fleece material will wear out and become scratchy overtime. Fleece is a warmer fabric and can get hot. Some designs make your feet come to a point which can be uncomfortable as the fabric isn’t stretchy or flexible.
There are some good mermaid fleece blankets out there so don’t let me discourage you!
Sequin Mermaid Tail Blankets
Who needs therapy when you have mermaid sequin fabric?
This sequin is two toned which means you can change the color buy changing the direction the sequin is laying. These sequin mermaid blanket tails are far and few between (and somewhat expensive). If you are looking for something to sparkle up your bedroom, I suggest you go with a sequin mermaid pillow before committing to a sequin blanket tail
Mermaid Tail Blanket for kids
If you buy your kids mermaid blankets, they will quietly read a book and get along with each other.
Just kidding. BUT! Kid blankets are a great gift for your young mermaids. There are assortments everywhere with decent prices. I recommend fleece for kids over crochet blankets as they tend to be more durable with the little monsters
Does this seem silly to anyone else? Can you sleep inside of a shark blanket comfortably? Or as a parent tuck your kid into the mouth of a shark and say “good night”? Well! To each their own right?
Blankets with Mermaid Tails illustrations
This is a fun alternative to the standard mermaid blanket if you want to up your mermaid decor. Look at this fun illustration and colors. You can find multiple prints of tails and scales if you don’t like feeling confined by the standard tail blanket. Think outside the box mermaids!
