I wanted to share a few more pictures of the new blankets in the shop.
They are delicious!
A few details about this blanket::
After discovering that many of my customer’s children were using their play-silk as a comforting blanket, I decided to create these. This blanket makes the perfect security blanket to nurture little ones. Children find the softness of silk exceptionally soothing to the touch, they love to cuddle this silky blanket against their cheeks.
The silk is hand dyed in exquisite hues with eco-friendly dyes. The soft organic cotton flannel is unbleached & fair trade. This blanket silk is nearly three times thicker than my play silks and it is the biggest, most luxurious silk & flannel blanket that I know of. Triple stitched for durability. 41×41 inches of soft, delicious warmth for the special little one in your life.
Easy to care for, and even easier to fall in love with.

And guess what? I have one for you! It took several test blankets to figure out the perfect hem. Let me tell you, silk is not easy to sew with! It likes to stretch as you sew, and it’s so slippery! After a few tries (like six!) I finally found a finished edge that I loved. I sent all but one of my test blankets to friends to try out…. but I saved one just for you! It’s got a different binding than the ones pictured above, but it is still lovely in every way. I want the color to be a surprise for the winner, but it’s definitely gender neutral and sea inspired.
