The following is from thebump.com: A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth or death in infancy. This term is given to these special rainbow babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving us hope of what’s to come.
When we made our first blankets with rainbow colors, we did not know what a rainbow baby was. But someone bought a blanket that happened to have one sheep with rainbow colors and it struck a positive chord and they let us know. So we decided to make more blankets with these colors.
The sheep, whether white or rainbow-colored, are made from Bernat Pipsqueak yarn, a soft & fluffy polyester yarn that is Oeko-tex certified, which means that it’s been tested for over 300 harmful substances and is proven to be safe for your baby’s sensitive skin. And of course all of our blankets are lovingly knitted in a completely smoke- and pet/animal-free environment.
We can make any blanket with rainbow sheep, so if you prefer other colors, or a solid blanket, or one of our regular blankets with a single rainbow sheep, just let us know. We will let you know if there would be any additional cost (unlikely) and when we can deliver it (right after our next trip to Nicaragua, but we could be there right now!).
