Best Baby Gift?

You've seen the many "Best Baby Gift" pages online. Those are pure marketing. Vendors pay for inclusion and the sites almost always make money when you click an item and buy it.

Sheep Dreamzzz Baby Blankets are different. Please give us just a minute to tell you how.





Sheep Dreamzzz is part of Sheep Not Goats, a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that exists to help poor families through income opportunities. It's a hand up, not a handout. We don't profit from your purchase but instead give all we can to the people we help. Buy from us and you become part of that.


When we use the term "handmade," we really mean it. Every single stitch is placed by hand by one of the 10 women we trained to knit in Central America's poorest country. Check out our blankets and you will instantly appreciate the quality and amount of work these artisans invest in each blanket.


No Machines or Factories

Almost all baby blankets come from factories, mostly in China. The materials are mass-produced into huge rolls, then they are cut into blanket shapes, after which a satin border may or may not be added by machine.

There are no machines involved in making our blankets. Energy use is practically nil. Our knitters work in the living room of our farmhouse in a small, rural town in Nicaragua. Not only do we know them individually, each blanket includes a tag with the picture and story of the woman who made your blanket.

Here's the Sheep Dreamzzz "factory" - a living room


Faux fur, chenille, sherpa, and minky are marketing terms for versions of polyester used to make baby blankets. Polyester is a form of plastic.

Our blankets are mostly cotton or wool blends. We also have 100% cotton blankets, including organic. And the hand knitting produces lots of little holes that make a blanket inherently breathable.


There's a lot more we could write here, but we will leave it at this. Our blankets are beautiful, they're unique (nobody else will be giving the same thing, and it's a good cause that helps others.

So why not give Sheep Dreamzzz a try? We've never received a review less than 5 out of 5 - see for yourself.
