Little Gulls Bamboo Swaddle Blankets

Continue Shopping or View Cart

Our bamboo swaddle blankets are made from 100% bamboo rayon muslin and are a luxury alternative to traditional cotton swaddles. Bamboo rayon has many benefits over cotton – it’s much softer on delicate skin, it’s better for the environment, and has natural temperature regulating qualities making it easier to moderate baby’s temperature. We have called these baby blankets 'swaddles', but they’re incredibly versatile and can be used for almost anything. Our swaddle blankets are;

  • Beautifully soft – much softer than cotton due to the naturally round and smooth fibres of the bamboo plant

  • Absorbent – bamboo can absorb up to three times its weight in water and this property carries through to the fabric

  • Environmentally-friendly – bamboo grows quickly and is easily renewable, it also needs less water to grow than cotton. Bamboo has no natural pests and so doesn’t use nasty pesticides

  • Breathable – constructed with an open weave similar to traditional cotton muslin

  • Temperature regulating – due to small micro-gaps in the bamboo fabric which trap cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter

  • Unique – all of our print patterns are designed in collaboration with aspiring British-based artists

  • Easy to care for – unlike other luxury fabrics, bamboo rayon can be machine washed and ironed on low

  • Extra-large – at 120cm x 120cm

What can I use my bamboo swaddle blankets for?

Our bamboo swaddles can be used for swaddling, as lightweight baby blankets for layering, as extra-large muslin squares, for feeding and as breast feeding covers, for lining prams and cots (they are large enough to cover almost the entire cot mattress), as play mats and for tummy time, as changing mat liners or makeshift bibs and changing mats when out and about, to shelter baby from the sun and more. They are a true multi-purpose baby essential, and you will likely find that the way in which you use them changes over time.
