Our lovely assortment of muslin swaddles will keep your baby comfortable during the warmer months, and muslin baby blankets are handy all year long for many uses beyond swaddling. They can be used as a playmat for tummy time, a privacy throw for feeding baby, a sun shield or a burp cloth over mom or dad's shoulder.
Muslin Swaddle blankets use a different type of muslin than is used in dressmaking, underskirts, pattern making or for theater. Those projects use a traditional single layer plain weave muslin which is an inexpensive fabric, and it is plain with no printing on the material.
The Muslin used in baby products is also different than the muslin of old used in bandages which was strips of loosely woven open weave cloths.
The Muslin used in baby items is technically a Leno weave, and is sometimes known as a pocket weave, because there are two layers of thin fabric woven together in a large grid pattern which creates little pockets. The result is a soft fabric that is perfect for swaddling in warm climates and during the summertime. And the more you wash muslin, the softer it gets.
SwaddleDesigns muslin swaddling blankets are made from high quality cotton yarns to ensure they are long lasting. We use AZO free dyes and European inks for our designer prints that our founder hand draws or paints herself. Our founder is a nurse and mom of two, and she creates the prints for our blankets with love in her heart to welcome newborns with joy. She simply loves babies! Every single item she designs is made with baby’s best interest in mind and your style at heart.
At SwaddleDesigns, we are focused on stylish innovative products that help parents comfort and care for their baby. We offer a multitude of fabrics, patterns and colors to coordinate with any nursery or parent’s personal style.
