Bertie's Blankets XL Muslin SwaddleThese luxuriously soft muslin swaddles from Bertie's Blankets really blew us away. Not only are the designs absolutely beautiful but they are definitely the softest muslins we have ever come across. Many muslins tend to get softer the more you wash them but can often start out a little stiff but from the moment we laid our hands on these muslins we couldn't believe how soft they were (they even got softer after washing).
The muslins are made from a special woven mix of cotton and bamboo rayon which is known for its thermal regulating, which helps to keep the body warm when it is cold and cool in high temperatures, as well as being hypoallergenic, which is perfect for babies delicate skin and wonderful for eczema, not to mention its Eco-friendly production processes (bamboo grows quickly with little need for water and pesticides).
