Have you ever gone shopping for a soft and cuddly receiving blanket, either for your own little one or as a special gift and then only been able to find those thin, small ones that weren’t quite what you’d call ‘soft”? Local Whitby mompreneur and mother of twins, Rebecca Crawford, felt the same way and decided to design her own soft and decadent receiving blankets made from 100% cotton flannelette.
Wee Rascals custom makes all of their receiving blankets and they are at 42 inches by 42 inches in size, so your baby won’t outgrow them. And, once baby is done with swaddling they still can be used as play mats, stroller blankets, nursing covers etc. When ordering your blanket, you can choose from over 25 fabric choices and monogramming for that special touch.
Wee Rascals also sells receiving blankets in double thickness(2 receiving blankets sewn together) as well as in 100% Certified Organic Cotton and Organic Bamboo. In addition to receiving blankets we also sell custom made Sleep Sacks,(newborn to toddler sizes) Security Blankies, Stay put bibs, Fleece hats and mitts and more. Everything Wee Rascals make is sewn in Canada and all fabrics are from Canadian manufacturers.
We had one of our new moms give the blankets a test run and she loved them. Not only did they pass the wash test (yes, the washed up beautifully again and again), but she also loved the fact that there were so generous in size.
