Wrap your baby in a touch of luxury with our finest, softest wool baby shawls that can be handed down through the family for many years to come. Whether you decide to pass the baby shawl on to future generations or keep it as a memento, our white baby shawls will become a cherished family heirloom.
Baby shawl blankets often are a baby's most trusted companion, therefore we have made sure that it is made from the softest, highest-grade materials and offer shawl blankets made from either pure 100% cashmere, cotton, wool, and cotton blend. Our traditional baby shawl collection will be suitable for both girls and boys and will provide the cuddliest and softest experience for your baby, whether in the cot or cradled in your arms.
Although white baby shawls became popular in the 1700s due to the tradition of immersing babies in the water during the christening, they remain in use today and have grown more popular because of the Royal family.
The traditional baby shawl was first used by Queen Elizabeth following Prince Charles' birth, and years later, when Princess Diana went on to have Prince William and Prince Harry, she followed in the footsteps of her mother-in-law. Both of her sons have decided to follow the tradition and wrapped their children in a white baby shawl blanket too.
While there is a vast amount of knitted baby shawls out there, The Wool Company has ensured that its assortment of luxury shawl blankets will stand up to the rigors of day-to-day baby life and are easily maintained, so the newborn baby shawl can be passed down to future generations.
Our wool baby shawls are elegantly aesthetic, as well as practical for everyday use. All our blankets require minimal care, so if there are any spills it is easy to return your shawl for a baby to its pristine condition. Just hand wash your wool or cotton baby shawl with an approved detergent such as Woolskin Premium Woolwash which is a natural detergent and is completely safe for your baby.
Note that these baby shawls are of the highest quality and are made of natural wool, but they are not meant to be used as warm blankets (although we have blankets for babies too)
Keep the baby shawl tradition alive and consider buying a wool baby shawl over a blanket next time you are looking for a unique baby shower gift, newborn gift, or one-of-a-kind luxury christening gift.
