The Space Above the Ground Baby Muslin
We are delighted to offer our The Space Above the Ground soft muslin blanket. This reversible hand illustrated design takes families on a journey from day to night. The collection is a love song to the air around us and all the creatures that inhabit it, from pollinating moths, to rhinoceros beetles and rare migratory birds. Our soft muslins have been designed with an abundance of uses, making sure it will be a firm family favourite for the nursery, through to the junior bedroom and the great outdoors. A perfect lightweight blanket to use as a swaddle, nursing cover, burp cloth, baby change cover, tummy time mat - the small size blanket has a multitude of uses and makes an extra special gift for a newborn.
On one side of the muslin, three children can be glimpsed among the large branches of an old ash tree, finding unfamiliar faces in the cloud formations and spotting birds. On the other side of the muslin, light has faded to dark and giant moth air balloons carrying children rise up in a star lit cosmos. The caterpillars have transformed into incredible regal moths and a pair of trumpeting bees guard the magic pink sap of the ash tree.
Muslin is one of the world’s oldest fabrics and has become synonymous with babies because its lightweight but durable construction is perfect for ensuring little ones do not overheat. In our testing this blanket has become a firm favourite with both us and our children.
Once washed the fabric will naturally crinkle. You can iron the muslins if you prefer a flatter look.
