Halacha - Electric Blankets on Shabbos
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Can one use an electric blanket on Shabbos? It is extremely unlikely that it would get disconnected. It cannot be muktza because it's letzorech gufo. The only doubt I have is if one flips or bends the blanket a bit that the elemets in the blanket would get 'disturbed' and stop the electric flow for reaching the end of the element/wire. But if that is done unintentionally, it's davar sheEyno miskaven, no? Thanks very much.
Answer:

Reb Moshe Feinstein zatzal permitted using an electric blanket on Shabbos, provided that any knobs for adjusting the temperature were covered.
