First off, let’s go over the basics – what is muslin fabric made of?

What is muslin fabric?

The term ‘muslin’ is derived from the French word ‘mousse’ due to its soft, foamy texture and feel. Muslin fabric is a delicate yet durable fabric made from natural cotton fibres with a soft, breathable open weave. The open weave on muslin fabric made it perfect for use in regions with high humidity – especially in India where the fabric originated. Muslin cloths are an extremely versatile textile and have a wide range of household uses, but their super soft, breathable and natural fabric makes them the perfect material for babies’ sensitive skin.

The delicate yet durable fabric of muslins makes them perfect to use with babies and gives them a huge range of versatility in the nursery and beyond. Our range of super soft organic muslin cloths made by Cam Cam Copenhagen are an absolute must-have when having a baby. From classic muslin cloths, to organic muslin swaddles and baby comforters, our muslins are perfect for swaddling, mealtime, in the nappy bag, and more! Not only are they made of the softest GOTS-certified organic cotton, but also come in different charming colours, made to match the pram, nursery decor, children’s room or the changing table.

Rather than using cheap cloths made of synthetic fibres and fabrics, stock your nursery with beautiful, sustainably-made organic cotton muslin cloths. If you have a little one on the way or are in the process of designing your nursery, check out this little list we put together of three kinds of muslins to stock your nursery with:

1. Muslin cloths

The first kind of muslin cloth you should stock your nursery with is our adorable and practical range of 100% organic cotton muslin cloths made by Cam Cam.

One thing we absolutely love about Cam Cam Copenhagen muslin cloths is that they’re environmentally sustainable. Cam Cam uses socially and environmentally conscious production methods to make these super soft & breathable GOTS-certified organic cotton muslins. The natural and sustainable fibres are woven delicately and gives the fabric a lovely texture.

Not only does the four-layer breathable GOTS-certified organic cotton fabric in these muslins make them sustainable, it also makes them super soft and snuggly for baby. You can rest assured knowing that when using these muslins during meal time, at the changing table, or simply for a snuggle, they are toxin-free and won’t irritate your little one’s delicate skin.

2. Muslin swaddles

Once you’ve stocked up on your muslin cloths, grab a few of these amazing organic muslin swaddles for your nursery. Our baby muslin swaddles are made of GOTS-certified 100% organic premium cotton and measure 120 x 120 cm. These organic muslin swaddles are also sustainable and eco-friendly – something we care deeply about at Nordlife! Just like our standard muslin cloths, these lovely muslin swaddles have a variety of useful applications in and out of the nursery:

  • SLEEP: Use the muslin swaddle to get your new-born to sleep snugly and soundly. The light muslin fabric is perfect for warmer weather, hotter climates and summertime because they keep baby night and snug without overheating.
  • SHADE: Another fantastic use for these muslin swaddles is using them as a light cover to drape over the pram to keep the sun off your baby’s precious and delicate skin.
  • BREASTFEEDING: These muslin swaddles are also great for use when breastfeeding as they can be used as a cover to drape over baby and for wiping up small spills.
  • CHANGING: You can also use these swaddles on top of your changing table as a base to keep it clean – simply toss into the wash to clean!

Not only are these baby muslin swaddles adorable and practical, they also are intended for one of the oldest traditions in baby care – swaddling. Swaddling your baby during their first few months of life has countless benefits.

Benefits of swaddling:

When your little one wrapped up in a baby muslin swaddles, it simulates the familiar and comforting feeling of the mother’s womb. For decades, midwifes and healthcare providers have recommended swaddling babies during their first three months of life. Here are a few of the benefits of swaddling your little one with our sustainable and organic muslin swaddles:

  1. Prevents accidental face scratching
  2. Soothes babies and alleviates colic
  3. Prevents unnecessary awakening due to startle reflexes
  4. Longer and more sound sleep
  5. The traditional hands-over-heart swaddling position allows babies to self-soothe and sleep better on their own

Our organic muslin swaddles come in a range of classic Cam Cam prints and colours:

Pressed Leaves Rose
Pressed Leaves Blue
Grey Wave
Blossom Pink

3. Muslin baby comforters

In addition to standard size muslin cloths and our muslin swaddles, we also recommend stocking your nursery with a muslin security blanket or two.
