When it comes to buying a gift for a newborn baby, nothing could be more perfect than a soft and warm lambswool blanket, which can be passed on from generation to generation, yet still look as beautiful as the day it was brought home. We want babies to feel safe, treasured, warm and protected while they are snugly wrapped up in their natural woollen blanket.
Our brand new range of baby blankets are woven from 100% lambswool and brushed carefully with teasel heads, ensuring the softest possible finish against your baby’s delicate skin. Perfect for keeping your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Research reported in the medical journal The Lancet has also found that it has a soothing effect that can result in better sleep and improved weight gain.
But not only are these blankets a fabulous practical choice for your baby, they will also look beautiful in your home. Coming in three lovely designs, each one inspired by a different feature of Skye’s stunning coastline, there is the perfect blanket for every family.
For those looking for a neutral option for a surprise arrival, our Coral Beach design is a fantastic choice.
