From providing your baby a gentle cover before bedtime to layering the pram for long walks outside, these cashmere blankets will give warmth and great comfort to both you and your little one.Cashmere is one of the world’s most noble and finest fibres, and naturally, everyone enjoys the feel of this precious material. The name “cashmere” derives from the old spelling of Kashmir, the region in northern India, where the breeding of the Changthangi goat (or Pashmina goat, Kashmir goat) originated many hundred years ago. Nowadays, there is a multitude of cashmere goat breeds in China, Australia, Mongolia, and Tibet, but the finest cashmere wool is harvested from the Pashmina goats living high above sea level - an environment with an extreme range of temperatures that has made these goats grow extraordinarily fine hair called “down” to keep them warm when the temperatures drop or cool them down in the heat. Cashmere wool is harvested by combing the much coarser guard hairs that insulate the down. This gives cashmere the natural insulating quality that baby shawls and blankets need. Being so amazingly soft, it is also a perfect fibre for the most delicate and sensitive of skins and creates the most luxurious newborn gifts.Cashmere blankets you see here have been made in Ireland, Scotland, or England from the finest natural yarns exclusively for The Wool Company. These manufacturers produce cashmere baby blanket statement pieces in 100% pure cashmere and Merino wool which has been acknowledged by the British Royal family. Our cashmere blankets give a light and warm, comforting layer of beautiful cashmere luxury for your baby, whether in the cot, pram, or cradled in your arms.
