When it comes to selecting a baby blanket, there are several factors to consider to ensure your little one stays cosy and comfortable.

1. Superior Softness and Comfort:

Babies have delicate skin that deserves the gentlest touch. We have baby blankets in a variety of soft wool: pure new wool, merino and lambswool. The softest of these is merino sourced from Merino sheep, is renowned for its exceptional softness. The natural fibres are finely crimped, allowing air to circulate and create a breathable comfort zone for your little one. The blanket's soft texture also reduces the risk of skin irritations, ensuring a serene and cosy sleep.

2. Temperature Regulation:

Maintaining an optimal body temperature is crucial for infants, as their ability to regulate heat is still developing. Wool is a remarkable insulator, capable of trapping air pockets to provide warmth during colder months. At the same time, it possesses thermo-regulating properties that naturally adjust to your baby's body temperature, preventing overheating during warmer seasons. This thermoregulatory quality makes wool a versatile choice, suitable for year-round use.

3. Hypoallergenic Nature:

Protecting your baby from allergens and irritations is paramount. Fortunately, wool is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent option for babies with sensitive skin or allergies. Unlike synthetic fabrics, wool is free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fibres, minimizing the risk of skin reactions. You can rest easy knowing your little one is wrapped in a blanket that promotes their well-being and reduces potential allergenic triggers.

4. Durability and Longevity:

As parents, we understand the importance of investing in quality items that can withstand the test of time. British-made wool blankets are renowned for their durability and longevity. Crafted with precision and care, our blankets are designed to handle everyday wear, and snuggles, ensuring that they remain a cherished possession for years to come. However, if your looking for a blanket which can be washed we recommend going for pure new wool, this soft wool can be machine-washed at home on a cold wool setting. Our merino and lambswool baby blankets are recommended as dry clean only.
