How Sheep Dreamzzz Baby Blankets are Unique

Brenda and Carla are both disciples today and Sheep Dreamzzz knitters

100% Handmade

Each Sheep Dreamzzz blanket is knitted by hand over the course of a week or more.

Not-for-Profit

We have nothing against ethical for-profit businesses, but we are a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that has been helping the poor in Central America’s poorest country for over 7 years. Through Sheep Dreamzzz, we’ve provided our small group of knitters a means of feeding their families. So if helping others through your purchases appeals to you, please give us a try. news segment

Pastel Yellow Featherlight Handmade Baby Blanket

Materials

Many “luxury” blankets consist of two “microfiber” cut-outs sewn together back-to-back, with a satin border added around the edges – all stuff bought in bulk. Fast assembly and big profits. Our blankets use quality cotton- or wool-based yarn, every stitch from the hands of a woman we know personally and who depends on a quality result to feed her family.

Quality

Our knitters make the same blankets over and over (sometimes changing colors) and have become VERY good at what they do. Here’s a recent customer reaction:

I have just received my order; I am at a loss for words how absolutely gorgeous this blanket is! I really wanted an unusual baby blanket, and this blanket is all that, so soft, the colors are so beautiful, and great workmanship and quality. – Susan from Illinois, May 22, 2020

Not from a Factory

Aura here is working on a blanket in our home in Nicaragua. The women we’ve trained work in the house we live in when we’re in Nicaragua. It’s a safe, clean, smoke-free environment where they knit, talk, and listen to music. They help each other so as many as possible get paid for a completed blanket each week.

In Summary – A Unique Gift

You won’t have to worry about giving a unique gift. Handmade, excellent quality, and helping others – a great combination that will show you took great care in selecting something that will be treasured for years to come. Every blanket comes with a color photo card which tells about how the women and their families have been helped. packaging    best baby gift

The thought that each purchase also contributes to giving women the ability to provide for their families is a heart-warming addition to the gift.” – Rebecca (Florida)  ★★★★★

Here’s the photo card attached (by ribbon) to every blanket that we ship. This pretty much sums it all up!
