The Best Cashmere Baby Blanket and Their Benefits | Signature Cashmere

As a parent, ensuring the utmost comfort and safety for your baby is always a top priority. When it comes to choosing the perfect blanket for your little one, nothing compares to the unparalleled luxury and warmth of cashmere. Renowned for its softness, durability, and natural insulation properties, cashmere baby blankets offer a myriad of benefits that make them the ideal choice for keeping your baby warm and snug.

The comfort and safety are the priority, but choosing baby products that are aesthetically pleasing is second. Our homes are our sanctuary and often we’ve spent a great deal of time making our interiors perfect, with complimenting colours, objets d’art and focal furniture pieces. That’s until our bundle of joy comes along, and our peaceful sanctuary comes cluttered with a myriad of coloured plastic.

Our cashmere baby blankets are as beautiful in design as they are warm and soft, and if taken care of they can be passed down for generations.

The Perfect Baby Shower Gift: A Cashmere Baby Blanket

A cashmere baby blanket also makes a truly special baby shower gift. Something for the first born, that can be used for siblings and generations beyond. Here are the top five reasons you should opt for cashmere above all materials.

  • Unparalleled Softness: One of the most compelling reasons to opt for a cashmere baby blanket is its unparalleled softness. Crafted from the fine undercoat of the Capra Hircus goats in Nepal, cashmere fibres are exceptionally soft to the touch, gentle and soothing against your baby's delicate skin. Unlike other fabrics, cashmere maintains its luxurious softness even after multiple washes, ensuring that your baby stays comfortable and content.
  • Natural Insulation: Cashmere's natural insulation properties make it an excellent choice for keeping your baby warm in cooler temperatures without the bulkiness of traditional blankets. Cashmere provides unparalleled warmth when compared to other blends. This is all thanks to its natural temperature regulating properties. Cashmere baby blankets can be up to eight-times warmer than sheep’s wool, thanks to their hollow fibres, whilst weighing a fraction of a wool blanket in the same size. They are also much cosier than cotton or synthetic blankets. This makes cashmere blankets perfect for swaddling your baby during chilly nights or for adding an extra layer of warmth in their pram for country walks.
  • Hypoallergenic: For parents concerned about their baby's sensitive skin, cashmere offers a hypoallergenic alternative to other fabrics. Cashmere fibres are naturally breathable and less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. 
  • A Gift to Last a Lifetime: Despite its delicate appearance, cashmere is surprisingly durable and resistant to pilling, ensuring that your cashmere baby blanket will maintain its softness and quality for years to come. With proper care and maintenance, a cashmere baby blanket can be passed down through generations
  • Aesthetically Beautiful: In addition to its practical benefits, cashmere exudes timeless elegance and sophistication, adding a touch of luxury to your baby's nursery or on-the-go essentials.

How to Store Your Cashmere Baby Blanket

Unfortunately time passes quickly, and our babies won’t be little forever. There will come a time that you will need to store their baby blanket away. If stored correctly, your cashmere baby blanket will be as good as new for the next baby or even your grandchildren.

Poor storage can lead to piling, wrinkles and even damage to the fibres. Check your cashmere baby blanket for any piling and if present, you can gently remove this with a lint shaver. Then fold your cashmere baby blanket gently and place in a vacuum-packed storage bag to ensure it keeps clean, away from bugs (moths) and remains fresh, ready for the next bundle of joy!

How to Wash Your Cashmere Baby Blanket

It is highly likely that there will come a time (or several!) that you will need to wash your cashmere baby blanket. Due to the delicate nature of the cashmere fibres it’s highly recommend to hand wash our cashmere blankets. You should ensure you use cool water and natural detergents. 

You should also never wring or twist your blanket, as this may stretch and damage the fibres, allow it to dry naturally.

If you get a stain on your cashmere blanket, we recommend visiting your local dry cleaners for specialist advice.
