Muslin fabric has a certain magic quality to it: blankets and clothing made from muslin start out simply soft, but then they move on to become something even more special. Blogger Julie Kieras describes this phenomenon at Happy Strong Home:
“I love how the more I use these blankets and wash them, the softer and “plump-ier” they get. They get a quilted effect in the fabric, which adds character to the already delightful printed cloths.”
The open weave also makes muslin supremely breathable, which is why the much-loved Aden + Anais swaddling blankets are so popular: they’re cozy but babies don’t get overheated when they’re wrapped up in a nice sleepy baby-burrito.
And that’s why we’re so psyched for the latest collection from Aden + Anais: they’re using this same feather-light, downy-soft fabric to make baby clothes! The new Aden + Anais Layette Collection includes everything you’ll need to dress your newbie in his/her first year. Our Assistant Buyer, Kendra, is especially psyched about the prints: “It’s a great mix of mostly soft patterns with hints of vibrant colors, which is perfect since the collection is only for babies from newborn up to one year old.”
The soft cotton muslin weave makes Aden + Anais Layette clothing perfect for summer, keeping babies both cozy and cool. The patterns are also easy to mix, match, and layer, so you can add teeny pants to an adorable romper, or zip a hoodie over a baby bodysuit. All of these layette essentials are the ultimate in cuteness and comfort for baby’s first year, and we’re so excited to introduce them to our stores and our site!
