Luvies! An idea on luvies (or lovies) - what they are, how to use them

First - in honor of our first blog post, one free personalized luvy will be given away on February 20, 2017.  Read on!

This is a post on our smallest size 'blanket', the luvy!  This tiny scrap of a blanket is known by hard core blanket addicts as a luvy, a lovie, a woobie, a travel blanket, a security blanket, and many more imaginative names.

As for sizes - all our minky is cut into three sizes, the small luvy, a medium infant size, and a crib size. The smallest size is called a luvy. You may have noticed we have two sizes of luvies, a 15 x 18 and a 18 x 22, but what makes the difference in size is the ruffle.  So a non ruffle luvy will be 14 x 17, a ruffled version will be 18 x 22.

The luvy is a small size blanket, designed for babies to 'love on', or haul around.  It has many uses, first of which is to bring comfort to a baby.  Its small size is ideal for carrying around - without being dragged on the floor.  Many parents, auties and family friends choose them for their economical price, a great way to get a personalized keepsake, and the child will use it for a long time.  They are perfect lap blankets for a baby in an infant carrier or swing.  Later they will come in handy to wrap a beloved stuffed animal or dolly in.  Below are some of the photos sent to us by happy luvy customers.

And lastly, this is a video a sweet customer made of our three luvy sizes - note, the ruffle will add about four to five inches to the size, the minky part will remain the same size: 

And a photo to help you visualize the sizes:

So, whichever size blanket you choose, rest assured that the infant luvy size will be put to good use!
