Snugglewool Baby Car Seat Cover SW-410 Fits More Types of Infant and Most Baby Seats

Question about Snuggle Wool Car Seat Covers for Babies.

Q: "I see that you have a new Snugglewool baby car seat cover. How does the Snuggle Wool Infant Car Seat Cover SW-410 differ from the seat cover I bought two years ago for my friend? I am expecting, live in Arizona and am concerned about my baby's car seat heating up too much when we are out of the car shopping. Thanks. Sue."

Answer: Snugglewool redesigned the car seat cover to make it more adaptable to both infant carriers and to baby car seats. The Snugglewool  baby wool car seat cover SW-410 is made from soft edge-stitched Merino wool fleece with a neutral cotton trim. Included are cut-outs for seat belts and/or harness. This Snuggle Wool cover for infant car seats fits most infant carriers and convertible car seats with four and five point harness configurations. Keep baby comfortable in hot or cold weather: lambswool absorbs perspiration in hot weather and keeps baby warmer in cold weather. Note: Does NOT work well on car seats with head wings.

Snugglewool Infant Baby Car Seat SW-410 Specifications:

    37" from top to bottom (wool edge to wool edge, excluding cotton/elastic trim)
    24" horizontally at its widest point.
    Not for use in car seats with head wings
    Note: The lambswool is cut to a one inch length.
    The Merino lambwool is sliver-knit to a polyester backing and processed to withstand gentle machine washing. We recommend line drying. Fluff seat cover, if desired, on no heat setting in the dryer. Wash by itself for best results.

The earlier model, the Snuggle Wool Car Seat Cover- Universal Size SW-400 was not as versatile. The top part is 24" wide, 19" wide at the bottom,and is 35" in total length. The new one is made for the newer varieties of car seats for infants and babies.

I hope this answers your questions. Thank you.

Sincerely, Barbara

 

How to Wash and Dry Snugglewool and Mediwool Baby Blankets, Mattress Pads, Lap Robes, etc.

Question about best way to wash and dry Snugglewool products such as mattress pads, baby blankets, wheelchair cushion covers, etc.

Q: "Please let me know how to wash and dry Snugglewool products. I don't want to ruin my new Mediwool queen mattress pad. Thanks Judy.

Answer: We recommend a mild detergent or one specifically for use with wool. Since lambswool is naturally disinfecting, you don't need warm water. or heated drying.  All SnuggleWool and Mediwool products are packed with washing instructions. Machine wash on a gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent. Fluff in the dryer on an air setting and then air dry.  Lambswool also resists the development of bacteria and dust mites. We do not recommend washing with items. The friction and agitation of the wool fibers against the other clothing will cause more clumping of the wool which means less "fluffiness."

Thank you for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

Washable Fleece Baby Blankets and Other Baby Products from SnuggleWool

Question about the SnuggleWool 27x35 Baby Wool Blanket, Organic Back and the SnuggleWool Wool Baby Blanket, 27x36, Cotton Flannel Bk

Question: "What is the difference between these two wool baby blankets? I thought all wool blankets had to be washed by hand or dry-cleaned. Your website says these are machine waahable and line dry. Don't they shrink a lot? I am look for baby gift ideas for my best friend. Thanks. Robin."

Answer: The main difference is the backing. The first baby blanket has an organic flannel cotton backing and the second uses a cotton flannel for the backing that is not organic.

Both blankets are made from Merino lambs wool from Australia or New Zealand. The wool fibers are sliver-knit into a polyester backing. That means the fabric is sturdy yet machine washable. Of course, you want to use cool water and either a detergent made for wool or a mild detergent.

Merino wool has been proven to soothe children with a soft swaddling effect, thus reducing stress and restless movement.

The 27 by 35-36 inch size of lambs wool blanket is a favorite of mom's with new babies. My daughter-in-law  used this infant blanket to cover my grandson's when he fell asleep in his infant seat. She'd tuck it around him. It was also a great overwrap when taking him out on a cold Minneapolis day from the house to the car or from the car into a store when the wind was blowing hard. Or if he fell asleep when on the floor, she would cover him or move him onto the blanket and flip the side over him.  This is also a good size for a bassinet or cradle.

Snuggle Wool blankets are perfect for snuggling your child and can make a comforting play mat. A major advantage is that these wool blankets keep baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Wool absorbs perspiration and  is naturally disinfecting, too.

The blankets come in several sizes including crib blanket sizes. We also have other sizes of baby blankets for cribs, changing table covers, co sleeper pads , baby buntings and infant car seat covers. All make great baby gifts. Snugglewool products are made in the USA, too.

I hope this helped answer your questions.

Thanks.

Sincerely, Barbara

Question about the Product SF-SW-500 Snuggle Wool Baby Bunting

Q:"I have a question about SnuggleWool Baby Buntings For Strollers and Carriages: Would you please describe it more specifically - it's not so easy to understand what exactly it is made of. For example - what is this "fuzzy" inside of this bunting? Is it wool or synthetic? Thank you, Yulia"

Answer: The liningof this "baby sleeping bag" is lambs wool that is sliverknit into a polyester backing. That makes the lamb happy as it didn't die to give its skin. That makes the mom happy as she can launder this Snugglewool baby bunting in the machine on gentle. We also have a baby bunting with organic cotton. This is the Snuggle Wool SW-525. Both baby buntings have a center split for a stroller safety strap. This baby bunting is not made for use in a car seat.

Thanks for your question.
