Details

Finally a pure wool baby shawl in ivory!

Our best-selling shawl had a makeover.. having sold our beautiful 100% Merino Wool Baby Shawl for years, in its natural unbleached, undyed state by popular demand we introduced the same item in this lovely soft off-white.  

The shawl is beautifully crafted in Nottingham, the centre of the English lace industry, from fine merino wool, using the same traditional designs that have been in use for hundreds of years. It is a slightly modern take on a traditional heirloom baptism shawl and, whilst still practical - being warm yet lightweight - it is wonderfully delicate but, looked after properly, it will be cherished for years... even for generations...

Our Nottingham manufacturers have been making these special shawls for the babies of celebrities and Royalty alike for many years. They were chosen by the Royal family as the manufacturers for the creation of a receiving blanket for HRH Prince William and more recently for HRH Prince George and HRH Princess Charlotte. We are very proud that we have also been chosen by the wider family to supply a receiving blanket for Prince George (as well as for other cashmere bedding).

See reviews for our Pure Wool Baby Shawl to see what our customers have to say about its creamier sister shawl.

Wool cannot be dyed a bright white, consequently, this is not a bright bleached white and if you put it next to pure white cotton it will appear a very creamy soft off-white. However, it is easily white enough for baptismal requirements.

If you prefer a bright white shawl the pure white Cotton Christening Shawl should be perfect - see also below.

Size: 122 cm x 122 cm

Hand wash with a wool approved detergent. We highly recommend Aller Wash. This is a wonderful all natural detergent that cleans brilliantly, is completely safe for your baby, smells heavenly and deters house dust mites. Allerwash
