Why choose wool your baby? Babies love wool! They soothe to it. Some say a wool is like magic for calming a baby.
Not for use in a crib. It is fluffy and has "loft". Like other blankets, they are not recommended in a crib and do not use it for sleeping baby. It's for supervised playtime, snuggling and hugging time. You might even be able to go coverless for while when baby is on a wool. Wool is used as a diaper cover fabric because of the absorbent nature of wool and the resistant nature of it because of the natural lanolin on it so wool acts in the same way when it is in blanket, pad or pants form, too.
It's really snuggly and lovely.
Care: Hand wash using a proper wool wash (not a harsh detergent). We recommend Eucalan but there are several good brands of woolwash out there. It can be machine washed if you have a gentle wool cycle designed for washing wool using a gentle wool wash. Do not iron. Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry. Do not sun. Wool does not like heat of the dryer which will felt it. You may prefer some slight felting if you choose to do that. Some shedding is expected for new wool. Some shrinking, felting and pilling is normal for soft, fine merino wool and it is the normal nature of wool to have variations in color and pilling. These are not defects. This is part of the natural beauty and the nature of merino wool. Wet wool does smell like a sheep because it is real merino wool.
Wool does not need to be washed often.
