I was lucky enough to get to do my own photoshoot on my son Eli using the Gorgi’s Vintage Inspired Baby Shawls and Blankets as props and I have to say, they are something special. They are the kind of thing that will be kept forever and pulled out when he has his own children, a bit like a blanket that my own Mother handmade for me when I was born. These blankets are truly a gift that would be treasured.
They feel absolutely amazing. Often when I think of Merino, it can bring up thoughts of itchy woollen blankets … but not these, soft and silky!
Gorgi’s Vintage Inspired Baby Shawls and Blankets are produced using the finest quality anti-pill 100% Merino Yarn. It feels silky and soft, and is the most luxurious of wool yarns. The incredibly fine fibres ‘breathe’ and their natural properties prevent the build-up of uncomfortable humidity, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. It’s these properties that make it a particularly useful material for babies who can have problems regulating their body temperature.
And that’s why we’re sure a Gorgi shawl has to be the perfect baby shower gift – essential, yet quite gorgeous.
Gorgi’s founder Kirstin Bailey designed this particular baby blanket taking inspiration from her late Grandmothers crochet and knitting patterns… ‘this is a special little gem that can easily pass as one of those old school delicate hand knits’.

Why Choose Merino?
Merino is a super-fine and non-irritant wool that’s incredibly lightweight and warm. Unlike man made fibres, our woven merino ‘breathes’, and is naturally resistant to flame, dirt and creasing.
Gorgi’s Vintage Inspired Baby Shawl is larger than the average baby blanket and measures 1200x800mm- a great essential doubled over in the bassinet or crib, or as a throw for the cot during warmer months – also the perfect gift item for baby showers or christenings.
We are also very excited to be able to give one away, so a bit THANK YOU goes out to GORGI NEW ZEALAND! Valued at $163 … be sure to check them out over at the Gorgi website
