your baa blanket is made from the fleece of sheep that have worn jackets to protect their wool from the elements
it takes a sheep an entire year to grow fibers long enough to be worthy of a baa blanket. that's because long, thin fibers create super soft wool
the sheep's wool is turned into dye-free yarn using natural, chemical free soaps, ensuring your baby never touches harsh or toxic chemicals
easy to care for, baa blankets are machine washable (air dry) so you will always have a clean baa to cuddle up with
baa blankets are knit to order on 3D Japanese knitting machines, giving sustainability a new meaning - for you, your family, and the planet
like a fine piece of art, once they are knit, each blanket is given a unique number corresponding to the order in which it was created
"wool is so itchy!" if you have felt that, that’s not just an emotion; your feeling is based on actual science.
first, the quality of the wool being used matters - the larger the diameter of the strands of wool being used (measured in microns, where one micron equals 1 x 10-6 meters in length), the itchier it will feel. the narrower the diameter, the softer it will feel.
at baa, we use fleece of the narrowest micron wool so it feels like pima cotton instead of itchy wool.
second, the shorter the fiber, the more the wool will stick out and feel picky.
at baa, we only shear our sheep once a year to ensure a very long staple fiber.
third, the processing of the wool affects its softness. the more the wool is processed, the itchier it will feel.
at baa, because the sheep have been wearing jackets to protect the fleece from the elements, the wool is processed only in mild soap. and by keeping the wool dye-free, another harsh processing step is avoided.
babies supporting the local farm, fashionably.
soft, locally-made, and dye-free, baa baby blankets use clean, natural wool sourced from hudson valley farms. the result? a new luxury blanket that supports the environment and the local economies that produce them.
as soft as the softest cotton but luxurious as only wool can be!
