What is the difference between Muslin and Jersey Wraps?

Because we make both organic Muslin Wraps and Jersey Wraps for babies at Snuggle Hunny Kids, we are often asked; what’s the difference between them?  Both different types of swaddle wraps are made to be used with your baby from their very first moments in the world.  Both help you to calm and soothe your baby, especially in the first few months when they are getting used to life outside the womb and need the warmth and light pressure of a swaddle wrap to comfort them and aid sleep.

Both swaddle wraps are lightweight, breathable, easy to care for and suitable for all seasons and ours come in a gorgeous range of patterns and colours.  So what is the difference between them?

Organic Muslin Wraps

A Snuggle Hunny Kids Organic Muslin Wrap is made from the finest quality organic cotton muslin.  The fabric is lightweight and breathable and super soft and gentle on your little one’s skin.  In fact your Muslin Wrap will get softer after each wash.   

Muslin Wraps are thinner when compared with a jersey cotton wrap, which makes them perfect for warmer days, or warmer climates when you still want to be able to swaddle your baby, but need to take care not to let them overheat. 

Organic Muslin Wraps also have the benefit of being multi-functional.  You can use your organic Muslin Wrap as a change mat, nursing shield, even a teether.  And we’ve got 10 unexpected ways to use our Organic Muslin Wrap, that you probably haven’t thought of for you. 

Jersey Wraps

Our Jersey Wraps  are made from 100% soft cotton jersey.  They are slightly thicker than a muslin swaddle and have the added benefit of some stretch, which can make them easier to work with.  Perfect if your baby is extra wriggly, or you need some extra time to get your swaddle technique down pat.

Because jersey is thicker, they provide more warmth than their muslin cousin, making a Jersey Wrap a good choice for when you need a little extra warmth and snuggle for your baby.

Our Jersey Wraps are slightly smaller than our Muslin Wrap (100 x 100 cm compared with 120 x 120cm) so they fold up a little smaller, making them ideal for when you are out and about, or traveling with your baby.

So there you have it!  There are some subtle differences between these two gorgeous swaddle wraps.  We recommend that you have a few of each so that you always have the right swaddle wraps for your baby.
