Inspired by the needs brought by Hurricane Sandy, this ultra soft and oh-so cozy blanket forms a heart upon your baby's chest once swaddled, giving a warm hug and becoming a modern heirloom for your dear little ones.
These blankets bring children warmth while also raising funding for rebuilding communities that are still affected by Hurricane Sandy. 10% of proceeds are donated to Rebuilding Together, a national group who thoughtfully rebuilds communities in need of disaster relief. What makes them different is their focus on the long term & true consideration of each unique community.

See the picture at left of sweet baby Nora in her custom knit blanket, ' a warm hug for Nora ' - this makes such a wonderful gift for a baby to grow up with! Select the customized knit option and color selection, please include the name that you would like knit in the notes section at checkout. As the customized blankets are knit to order, please allow for at least 2 weeks for arrival.
Our baby blankets are knit with 100% Egyptian cotton, of beautiful colors made by a high quality mill, Filmar, founded in 1951 in Italy. They are the producers of beautiful colored yarn of the highest quality and meet European for fair trade, wage, and environmental regulations. The dyes for the yarns are safe for children and are OEKO-TEX® | OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
These wonderful, heirloom quality lightweight blankets are made in North Carolina by Scott McFarland Knitwear on a Stoll knitting machine. These knitting machines are truly amazing & most commonly known for being used by Nike & Adidas to knit sneakers. An added bonus is that they also use very little electricity, the equivalent of a few light bulbs. This knitting technique requires yarn with long fibers so that it won't break during production. The long fibers required also make for a high quality blanket, with plenty of gusto for long-life wear.
Machine wash cold, dry medium. Made with love, of eco-friendly materials and in the U.S.
* And BIG thanks to our beautiful baby & kiddo models!!

**Returns/exchanges - Unfortunately these are not possible due to the hygienic nature of the soaps and body care products. Made to order items are also not possible to return or exchange. For the rest of our items, if items are not damaged, a return or exchange is possible on a case by case basis.
**Glycerin Soap - High quality glycerin soap naturally attracts moisture from the air. If your soap has a little of the protective waxed shipping tissue, just give your Bird or Bar an initial wash, this is completely normal for a handmade soap. The BirdSoaps are carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to protect their shape during shipping.
