Buying Beverly Hills + Sheep Dreamzzz
Not long ago, friends of our children spotted a Sheep Dreamzzz blanket on the Netflix reality show Buying Beverly Hills. We investigated and found realtor Allie Lutz pushing a stroller with a pink Sheep Dreamzzz blanket at the 10:20 mark of Episode 5, Farrahween.

A couple of days later someone bought a blanket and said she saw it on the show, so we're doing what we can to share about Sheep Dreamzzz with the BBH audience. All profits go to the women in Nicaragua who knit the blankets!

If you know the show but haven't a clue about Sheep Dreamzzz, our 501(c) (3) non-profit works to help the poor in Nicaragua and trained a small group of women to knit beautiful handmade baby blankets and loveys that we sell at sheepdreamzzz.org. They receive all the profit from their work. That's right - 100% to them so they can feed their families in Central America's worst economy.
Allie's pink blanket was made from our original Angel yarn from Fair Isle, which is now out of business so we can't get more of it. We have one blanket left made with this yarn, but instead of pure white sheep they are white with some other colors in it (pink, green, and blue). Here it is:
Hand-knitted baby blankets are inherently breathable. Each one takes a week or more to make. No machine touches your blanket until we sew on the final label. Our knitters work in the living room of the small house we built on our farm in Nicaragua (another part of our charitable work). They work together, talk, and listen to music in comfortable chairs with fans overhead.
When you purchase from Sheep Dreamzzz, you're helping a woman who wants to earn money by the work of her hands and not take handouts. Each blanket includes a tag telling you who made it and a little about her.
