Choose Wool For A Better Life & Planet

When you choose a Vanessa Bell baby blanket, you’re not just making a purchase; you’re making a conscious choice for the environment and future generations. Join us in embracing the warmth, comfort, and sustainability of Merino wool.

Our blankets are keepsakes, hand knitted in 100% Australian Merino wool.

If you show your blanket a little care, it will love your family for generations to come. Merino wool has a naturally protective outer layer, which resists wet and dry soiling minimising odours. This means it doesn’t require frequent washing.

It’s static free and attracts less dust and lint. What’s more, Merino wool contains lanolin which is naturally antibacterial preventing colds and flu.

Caring for your blanket is easy, but there are a few things you should know. 


  • Warm machine wash on a short gentle cycle (use a wash bag).
  • Use an approved wool detergent.
  • Warm rinse well; gently squeeze out excess water and dry flat in shade.
  • Wool has a memory so stretch gently back into shape and use a warm iron if needed.
  • Dry clean your blanket. 


  • Don’t use hot water cycles as it will shrink your blanket.
  • Don’t use normal washing powder as it strips the lanolin from the fibre and will ruin the finish of your blanket.
  • Don’t tumble dry as you will shrink your blanket.
  • Don’t dry in the sun as it will scorch and discolour the wool.
  • Don’t hang your blanket on the line it will stretch.
  • Don’t bleach.


We use high quality Merino yarn to reduce pilling however you might find with age, some pilling is inevitable.  To prevent this, wash the blanket when you notice loose fibres.  If you notice pilling use a sweater comb to remove.  


To deter moths, store your blanket with Red Cedar and Huon Pine as a safe alternative to the highly toxic naphthalene moth balls.  Seal your blanket in summer months for storage.
