Over 5 square yards of custom made extremely soft fabric is handmade into the unique Albrea Baby Cocoon by either the designers themselves, or by local artisans, in Utah. The patent pending stitching patterns, sewn with elastic thread, create a unique puckering stretchable fabric, designed to make a unique, soft and fun way to hold your baby. Both artists are mothers, and like other parents know how hard it is to keep a baby tucked inside a blanket when out at an athletic or other cold weather event. They creatively designed a way to keep baby snug and warm without having to dress baby in a cumbersome snowsuit or outerwear. Baby can be tucked in or taken out easily. Both artists knew the cocoon had to be easy to care for. The Albrea Baby Cocoon machine washes on cold and air or lay flat to dry. The cocoon can be stuffed into your bag, and still comes out looking great. It is made out of the same puckering stretchable fabric that the Albrea Throws are made from. Baby can wiggle and stretch all they want in every direction, not feeling confined, which baby likes and needs. The ultrasoft, slightly thinner minky type fabric is soothing to baby and parent alike.
