Craftmanship of the World's Longest Hot Water Bottle

Why constantly move a small, traditional hot water bottle around your body if you can enjoy the large spread and blissful heat from the YuYu Bottle? Measuring 81cm the YuYu is the world's first long hot water bottle, and can stay warm for up to 6 hours.


Innovative Features


The bubbles on the surface of the bottle count not only as a massaging feature but also create air pockets under the fabric which in turn allows the bottle to stay warmer for longer. Depending on the temperature of the enviroment you're in, the YuYu should stay warm for anything between 2-6 hours. 2 hours if you're outside in the cold and possibly even up to 6 hours if you're in bed.

Innovative Design

With an enlongated shape the YuYu can be wrapped around your body, but with the extendable strap feature found in our Fleece, Liberty, and Floral ranges you can enjoy hands free heat application as you tie the YuYu around your waist, back or shoulders.
