We are really excited to tell you about the new Baby Blanks colours and styles that have just arrived for summer. With Christmas coming and holiday times ahead it’s time to have some fun with brighter colours, as well as getting the latest vintage look with our new Stone Wash series.

Baby Blanks Stone Wash Series
Our most exciting news this season is the arrival of our long awaited Stone Wash series. Yay! Baby Blanks is the only supplier in Australia offering this on-trend look for baby and kids.
Stone washed cotton is having a come back, with vintage and de-stressed styles in jeans, denim jackets and tees appearing everywhere. Frayed, faded or acid wash, as well as stone wash cotton t shirts with a mottled, vintage look are right on trend.
The Baby Blanks Stone Wash series is currently available in Salmon-Rose and Black and is available in three of our popular styles:
The Stone Wash series arrives on November 25, but pre orders are available.
Stone Wash Cotton
The difference between stone wash and acid wash is really about degrees. Stone wash produces a gently mottled colour across a garment, while the uneven colour of acid wash is more dramatic, often looking like acid has been spilled over a section of the fabric, with dark and light sections. The gentler stone wash effect achieves a soft vintage look, that looks as if the t shirt is well worn, but doesn’t compromise any of the strength of the cotton jersey. Whether you know this look as stone wash, snow washing, or acid wash, it’s a great vintage look and a new take on 1980s and 90s trends.
Making Our Stone Wash Tanks & Tees
To achieve the vintage, well-worn look, each item undergoes a ‘snow wash’ to achieve the stone wash effect. The fabric is first dyed, and then cut and sewn. The garments are then dry washed in an industrial machine with ‘snow balls’, which gently remove or ‘fade’ the dye on the fabric. The process removes the dye from the outside of the garment and creates a ‘snow’ or ‘frosted’ pattern, without compromising the strength or quality of the cotton jersey.
