Merino wool is perfect for the luxury baby blankets that we now stock. Super soft, warm and breathable. Perfect for your newborn.
What Blanket is Best for My Newborn?
There are many blankets available made from all manner of fibres. In today’s world of convience, regrettably polyester has come to dominate. No more so in the world of fabrics to wrap your precious one up in.
Polyester is a tempting option for parents. It is a cheap, warm and soft fabric, that can be chucked into the wash regularly. However here are where its advantages end.
A 100% Merino Wool baby blanket, although more expensive, offers exceptional warmth and softness. Unlike polyester, merino wool is also breathable, meaning your baby will be more comfortable. Wool is hygroscopic, meaning that it wicks moisure away from the body and evaporates. As moisture never builds up, nasty odour causing bacteria are surpressed. This means that blankets made of wool, can simply be aired and in doing so – to an extent – self clean.
Furthermore merino wool is a natural fibre, which makes it better for your baby and the environment too. Something your baby will thank you for later! For more about this, read our blog post: ‘Ocean Plastic Pollution – Is Wool the Solution?’
