Our Cashmere is renowned for its luxurious, super soft handle and unrivalled warmth. Yet we are often asked if this incredibly fine fibre is suitable for babies. It's the ideal material to place next to your little one's delicate skin, making Cashmere hats, booties and cardigans the perfect newborn gift.

Can babies wear Cashmere?

It's essential to keep babies warm without allowing them to overheat, so the natural insulating properties of Cashmere make it the ideal choice. In addition, the cloud-like softness of our Cashmere products means they won't irritate the skin.

Caring for baby's Cashmere products is simpler than you might think, too. The soft fibres have natural antibacterial properties; so generally need to be washed less often. When baby's clothing does need to be cleaned, a gentle hand wash with cashmere shampoo is all that's required, then reshape the garment and allow it to dry naturally.

Is Cashmere good for babies?

A baby's tender skin can be sensitive to harsh chemicals, fragrances and dyes. Our meticulously selected Cashmere fibres are dyed in shades as close as possible to their natural colour to avoid unnecessary bleaching.

Cashmere is a natural, biodegradable and sustainable fibre and, when properly cared for, can last for years and years so that you can pass baby's first Cashmere cardigan down through the generations. Cashmere is an excellent choice for babies and, compared to many synthetic fibres that take a long time to decompose, is better for the environment too.

What Cashmere products should I choose for my baby?

Our Cashmere newborn products make fabulous gifts, allowing you to give a little bit of luxury to the special new addition in your life.

Our White Pointelle Baby Cashmere Cardigan is the ideal choice for a newborn, keeping baby cosy in the cold but also cool enough to ensure he or she doesn't overheat. Hand-knitted and featuring exceptional attention to detail, this beautiful cardigan is an elegant choice for a Christening and practical enough for everyday wear. Also available in Mirage Blue and Cameo Pink, this Cashmere Cardigan can be accessorised with our Baby Cashmere Hat and Mittens. The mittens feature ribbed cuff detail and slim wrist ties while the hat features a similar tie detail under the chin.

Beautifully crafted using the softest Cashmere, our Fair Isle Cashmere Baby Blanket is whisper-soft on baby's delicate skin. Available in Natural, Pink and Blue, this baby essential features a cute combination of bunny rabbits, stars or hearts against a traditional Fair Isle design. Complementing hat and mittens are also available in this design.

For a personal touch, you can create your own gift set by choosing coordinating items from our newborn range for us to gift box and tie with a ribbon. Make your gift extra special by having baby's name added to a blanket with our in-house personalisation service - up to eight letters can be embroidered onto your blanket in your choice of thread colour.

Whether wrapped in one of our Cashmere Blankets or styled in our Cashmere Cardigan and Hat, our highest quality fibres promise baby a super soft touch. Cashmere really is the perfect choice for babies.
