Why use muslin bamboo baby blankets?

Besides how amazingly soft & luxurious they feel they are actually great for controlling baby’s temperature. Cooling in the summer & warm in the winter. Muslin is an open weave breathable fabric that is traditionally made from cotton. The new trend is creating bamboo muslin fabrics. Bamboo muslin is a luxury alternative to traditional cotton muslin. It is man made using cellulose extracted from bamboo. The fibres of the bamboo plant are naturally round and smooth which create an extremely soft fabric often described as feeling like cashmere.

What are the benefits of using bamboo muslin?

Bamboo muslin keeps all of the useful benefits of cotton muslin – durable (machine washable), breathable and absorbent – but offers additional advantages too

  1. it’s softer than cotton (feels and drapes like silk)

  2. it’s 3-4 times more absorbent for pulling moisture away from the skin

  3. it’s thermo-regulating due to small microgaps within the fabric which trap cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. This helps to regulate temperature and is unique to bamboo

  4. bamboo muslin limits skin irritation as the round and smooth fibres lie flat against the skin

  5. bamboo has no natural pests so doesn’t use pesticides to grow - a good alternative to organic cotton

  6. bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth so yields more often from the same plot. It also needs very little water and tending to grow

  7. fabric made from bamboo is 100% biodegradable and can be completely decomposed in the soil by just micro-organisms and sunlight
