Exquisite heirloom baby blanket, hand crafted in natural yarns. This would make a truly special, gender-neutral baby gift (ideal if you want to buy before the baby is born and you don’t know the sex). Super light and soft, it drapes beautifully, it only weighs nine and a half ounces (275g) and measures 29x27 inches. We have three of these blankets in pale yellow, soft grey, sage green and cream patchwork but they are unique in that each has a different edging. They are hand knitted in England by Jane and they are packaged in a smart ivory box with white tissue paper. The yarn is a fine 70% baby alpaca (from an alpaca’s first shearing, when the fleece is softest) and 30% silk. It requires gentle hand washing and should be dried flat. It will keep little ones warm without overheating.

Baby alpaca and silk exquisite baby blanket hand knitted in the softest, lightest yarn.

It would make a fantastic, unique gift for a new baby. Hand knitted with love and care in a natural 70% baby alpaca, 30% silk fine yarn, it drapes beautifully and will keep a baby snug whilst letting the skin ‘breathe’.

Baby alpaca Cotton Merino wool
The softest alpaca yarn comes from a baby’s first shearing, generally from around the neck, where it is fluffiest. It is a soft, fine, durable, luxurious and a silky natural fibre. Yarn made from alpaca fibres does not felt or pill easily and it can be light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. While similar to sheep's wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
The baby alpaca and silk yarn that we use is spun from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two wonderful fibres, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and glossy shine). The yarn fibres are untreated, which means they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibre’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality. It is great for baby garments, soft against the skin, cooling when hot and warm when cold.
Our Baby Merino is spun from 100% merino wool fibres (19.5 micron) from free-range animals. Not only is it a super soft and itch-free wool yarn perfectly suited for delicate baby skin, Baby Merino is also superwash treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for daily use. Baby Merino is constructed by spinning multiple thin strands which gives extra elasticity. Our Baby Merino yarn is cable spun, which means the stitches are clearly defined, and the result achieved is neat and even. Made in the EU, this yarn has Oeko- Tex® certification.
All of the cotton yarns that we use are carefully chosen for their softness and lightness. They are all 100% of the finest cotton resulting in a beautifully soft, matt yarn which is ideal for babies.
Baby alpaca & silk
This is such a decadent, luxurious yarn, supplied by Yarnundyed. It is 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere, making it an absolute dream both to knit with and to wear. They use only longer fleece in all their yarn types which means that they are able to produce all their yarns on worsted system. The fibres are washed, carded and then combed (aligned) before spinning. Worsted spun yarns form longer staple fibres, are more luxurious and refined, stronger and will feel softer and smoother. The use of longer, combed fibre and the removal of the shorter fibres during the combing process, significantly reduce pilling in the resultant yarn.
