Why The Little Dreamer Blanket Is Your New Favorite Baby Blanket
In October 2021 we launched something brand new that we are thrilled to add to the Lucy Darling lineup! The cozy soft Organic Cotton blanket in two of our signature most loved designs: Flower Child & Little Camper.
These blankets are light but warm and are sure to be your little one’s new favorite blankie. You can cozy up at story time, movie nights, bed time, naps, and car rides with your new favorite blanket. They are perfect for snuggling with baby and will grow with your little one through the toddler years!
We cannot wait to gift these along with our memory books!
One thing that’s extra special about The Little Dreamer Blankets is that they’re made of organic cotton. They are durable and will get softer with each wash. Here are just a few reasons why we chose organic cotton for these blankets:
Organic cotton has a longer life, and is more durable to washing and snuggles. Unlike normal cotton, organic cotton lasts longer, because organic cotton’s resilient fibers have not been damaged by chemicals during the growing and weaving process, which makes the quality superior.
So no matter how many times you wash them, or your baby wears them, your blankets will get softer with each wash and age beautifully.
Non-toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn't damage soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy. Conventional cotton uses about 16% of the world's insecticides and 7% of pesticides.
The thread in your Little Dreamer Blanket is recycled too!
Why recycled nylon thread: recycled nylon is usually made from pre-consumer fabric waste, although it also may come from post consumer materials such as industrial fishing nets.
GENTLE ON SKIN
Organic cotton is gentle and kinder to a baby's skin, as the material is soft and free from chemicals, there is less of a chance of your child developing skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and skin allergies. As organic cotton always keeps its natural state, it makes it mould resistant and antimicrobial too.
This makes it important for babies to sleep in bedding (our blanket) and wear clothing that is chemical free, because baby skin is 5 times thinner, more absorbent and more sensitive than adult skin, so a baby’s skin absorbs toxic chemicals faster and is more likely to develop skin irritations or allergies and if dressed in conventional cotton babies can inhale the chemical residues from the fibers as they sleep.
Their Organic Cotton and Recycled Thread is just a bonus to how beautiful and timeless The Little Dreamer Blankets are! We hope you’ll love adding these to your little one’s nursery or gifting to friends and family.
