Baby Luxe Crave – Cashmere Blankets

Written by Jess L

OK, so you know by now about my obsession with cashmere. I wear it. My kid wears it. My husband wears it. If I had a pet, my pet would probably wear it.

This post is about taking cashmere to the next level.

If you have a baby or a small child, you’ll relate to the desire to wrap them in bubble wrap so nothing can ever hurt them. Not a very healthy instinct, but understandable. In lieu of making your child The Boy In The Bubble, though, I propose a different approach: give them really really soft stuff to cuddle.

The Pashmina Store was kind enough to make that a reality for my little girl. She’s not a baby anymore, but she’s small enough that she gets cold when playing in the snow (which, by the way, won’t quit this year; have you noticed?) They sent me one of their Cashmere Baby Blankets to try out, because I’m a luxe blogger and I get perks like that, so deal with it.

Okay. So first thing’s first: this blanket is the most gorgeous colour. My daughter’s favourite colour is red, and so she requested the red one. But this isn’t the tacky fire-engine red of a Tonka truck. This thing is the stunning russet-red of the best kind of fall leaves. It is just stunning.

It’s also soft. Really, really soft. I gave it to my daughter and she wrapped herself in it and said, “Mommy, is it made out of bunnies?”

Like the mean mom I am, I sent her out to play in the snow in the backyard until she was cold. She came in and immediately demanded her blanket. You can see the result.

The verdict: if you like soft things that feel like they’re made of bunnies, pick one of these things up.
