How do I care for my handmade items?

We know baby products get a lot of use, so our burp cloths, bibs, loveys, towels, and blankets are all made to go in the washing machine. First remove any wood teethers, if applicable, and wash on a warm or cool delicate setting. We recommend using a phosphate free detergent. Then tumble dry low and do not iron. Products with Sherpa minky stay softest when air dried. 

what about my wood teething ring?

Remove lovey from teething ring. Spot clean the wood ring. Do NOT submerge, soak, or freeze as it may cause cracking. Because wood is a natural item and variations in the material can occur, it should be handled and cared for attentively to prevent damage. Adult supervision is ALWAYS required. Always inspect your product upon receipt as well as each time you give it to a child. If you notice a crack or breakage, DO NOT give it to a child.

Do you take custom orders?

Yes! We love finding and buying fun, new fabrics. Just send us a message via the CONTACT link above and let us know what you're looking for as well as your time frame. Creating unique gifts and items for our clients is one of our favorite things! We do not offer custom embroidery at this time.

Is gift packaging available?

Absolutely! We can include a handwritten note card with your personal message with all items in our shop. Additionally, many items are eligible for gift packaging. Please check individual product pages for costs, options, and images of gift packaging.
