What is muslin? Muslin is a lightweight, breathable cotton fabric. It originated in Bangladesh during the middle ages and is typically used in sewing, and even as a filter in cooking! Lately, muslin has been used to make popular infant products. Especially in swaddle blankets.
What makes muslin great for swaddling is the breathability. The fabric is so light, it allows for optimal airflow, and reduces the risk of overheating. Wrap your baby tight without worrying! It will also last you a long time. Muslin is extremely soft, and only gets softer the more you wash it. When it comes to our babies, durability is a must!
There are lots of great swaddle blankets out there made with muslin. But recently, I came across Oliver + Kit.
What makes Oliver + Kit unique is their gorgeous, colorful, loud designs! These blankets are so wonderfully fun, you’ll want one in every design. Sawyer loves them! The beautiful colors and patterns are great stimulation. He’ll stare at them all day long! He’s at that stage where he puts everything in his mouth and I can rest assured that these are light and breathable enough that he can pull them over his face and stick the corners in his mouth without suffocating (under my supervision of course).
Warning: Never leave your child unattended with a blanket
I’ve gotten so many questions and compliments on these blankets while we’re out and about, the patterns are just so captivating! It’s made a great car seat blanket now that the weather has gotten colder. We don’t leave home without one!
Oliver + Kit co-founders, Karen + Dani, are a mother-daughter team from Iowa and California. Best friends, Karen + Dani enjoy spending time at home, on adventures, and on creative pursuits. Their love of design and creativity coupled with a desire to bring fine things to children inspired them to create Oliver + Kit. They believe fashion and quality should not have to wait, but should start at birth. Their designs are each uniquely created and produced in limited numbers. They know you are looking for something new, bold, and different, not just the same baby designs you see everywhere. Karen + Dani hope you and your child enjoy Oliver + Kit products as much as they have enjoyed bringing them to you.
