The Neonatal Trust are privileged to present beautiful blankets to 64 Wellington based families this winter thanks to long term supporters, Stansborough.
Stansborough recently held their annual Winter Charity Support Week during the week of 29th June – 5th July, where every sale went towards helping gift a cosy Stansborough Woollen Blanket to a neonatal baby this winter.
Wool is a beautiful natural fibre that importantly is breathable, unlike synthetics and acrylics which can cause a baby to overheat. Babies born early cannot regulate their own body heat and the use of wool is key to ensuring their body can focus on growing and developing. Stansborough’s use of 100% Pure New Zealand wool, is natural and chemical free so perfect for fragile babies.
We are incredibly grateful to the team at Stansborough for all their support in helping keep so many tiny and fragile neonatal babies warm in 100% wool this winter.
