The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child, and you can be certain that their tiniest edition to the family will be swaddled in bespoke luxury. Every mother and father wants what’s best for their children; from the very best education to the food on their plates, but we also want to give them the softest, most comfortable start in life.
From delicate cotton to soft cashmeres, the quality of clothing, blankets and bedding should not be compromised on when our children are tiny, and nothing comes close to wool. As an all-natural material, its as pure as as it can be and the most trusted material to have close to our babies delicate skin. Wool is breathable and anti-allergenic, and it helps to regulate body temperature, which is something very young babies can’t do.
Wool is beautiful. All my babies slept on a sheepskin in their moses baskets and even if this is all you invest in for your most precious new person, we think it’s an essential one.
Lana Bambini are passionate about wool, and aside from their sheepskin shorn, there are three essential classic and non-fussy pieces that every newborn deserves.

Every newborn needs a traditional shawl. These are the things that are passed down through generations and used at every christening. If you’re lucky enough, yours might be a hand knitted shawl, but this one from The Wool Company is the next best thing.
It is a thing of beauty draped across a carriage pram, or wrapped about baby as you pass them gently to doting friends and family.
