Gender-Neutral Baby Blankets
There are good reasons to consider gender-neutral baby blankets. Many people don’t know if they are having a girl or a boy, some might want a blanket they can use with more than one child, and some are simply ready to move on from the traditional pinks and blues.
Sheep Dreamzzz offers great gender-neutral baby blankets. Here we’ve placed images of our most popular ones, but you can easily see all of our colors on one page here. Click any image to go to that blanket type. From there you may need to reselect the color.
We must mention that we are a non-profit that trains women to knit in Nicaragua, the poorest country in Central America, and in the 2+ years we have been doing this, they have become expert knitters. The quality is excellent, and when you buy a blanket, you are helping a woman (typically a young mom) to feed her family.
Comfort Chunky – Medium Gray
Gray has proven to be very popular in the gender-neutral space. This one is 52% acrylic, 40% wool, and 8% nylon, and is very solid and super-soft. It’s approximately 24 inches by 24 inches, which is a great size as a lot of kids will trip over a larger blanket once they start walking. We also have one with a white border plus other solid grays in wool blend and organic-ish.
Light & Cozy – Vanilla
This blanket isn’t white – it’s vanilla and has light brown sheep on it, so it’s gender-neutral with an earthy tone to it. The fact that it’s so lightweight makes it a great year-round cover. 55% cotton, 45% acrylic
Light & Cozy – Khaki
This blanket is made with the same yarn as the one just above, although it’s just slightly less lightweight, and the color is a little bit on the dark side of khaki.
Wooly Warmth – Caribbean Sea
This wool blend has a bright and cheery mix of sea blue, baby blue, and green and is full and soft. 25% superwash wool, 75% acrylic
On our main page you’ll find other blankets with sea blue / turquoise in them, which we think makes a good gender-neutral choice. Other “unisex” options there include teal, tan/sand, a few greens, and others.
