Collection: Lightweight Baby Blankets

In the hunt for a lightweight baby blanket that's snug but not stifling? We have hand-knitted blankets that are light and breathable, great for warm times of the year or as a light cover anytime. 

Little girl wrapped in a pastel pink lightweight baby blanket. It's one of our 45% cotton baby blankets that are lightweight for summer or any time of year..

Not all hand-knitted blankets are lightweight. It's all about the yarn. You also get breathability superior to all the blankets based on faux fur or minky cut from a textile roll. The secret is all the little holes that result from a knitting by hand (not by machine).

So don't just consider muslin baby blankets or 100% cotton baby blankets for your lightweight blanket needs. Consider handmade, with knitting like in the old days - by hand, no machines, no factories.
