:)) Woohoo! Finally, last night my home made bottle snuggle worked, and temps dropped to minus ten last night brrr, I placed the bottle in at half seven last night and when i checked on it this morning at eight it was cold but not frozen :)

So all of you, who would like to try my bottle snuggle, I have wrote the materiels I used below:

Firstly I used tepid water
I wrapped two layers of tin foil around the bottle
Added 6oz Wadding around the tin foil
Placed a padded envelope over the top
And finally placed a sock over the of everything!



You may find your bottle hook won't support or even reach around the bottle snug, so I'd suggest using two pieces of string, tied to the mesh to support the bottle. :)

I placed my bottle under three blankets, for extra warmth.

Hope this is helpful to anyone who's having water bottle problems!

Teehee another tip, before placing into the hutch I prewarm my sock on the radiator for five mins so it's warm, i think it helps keep everything that little more snuggley! :)
