UV Blanket

The unique fabric blend that provides UPF 50+ sun protection, and the addition of 2 snap buttons make the UV Blanket multifunctional. Check the Inspiration page for all uses, but maybe you can think of more!

The UV Blankets are made from a special blend of viscose from Bamboo, Cotton & Lycra. The bamboo is sourced from the Moso timber bamboo plant from a forest that is certified organic by OCIA ( organic crop improvement association) and the FSC ( forest stewardship council). This special blend creates a fabric that is super soft with the following properties:

  • UV protection: Bamboo naturally provides added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays. The special weaving of the fabric ensures the blanket to provide UPF 50+ sun protection without the use of any additives
  • Wicks moisture: The bamboo absorbs and evaporates moist rapidly
  • Anti Bacterial/Anti Odor: Bamboo fabric contains a naturally occurring anti-microbial agent that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it, which means it helps keep you odor free.
  • Allergy reduced. Bamboo’s organic and naturally smooth fiber properties are non-irritating to the skin, making it ideal for a child’s ensitive skin
  • Breathable & thermal regulating: ensuring that you are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 
  • Lightweight : it feels so soft and light, try it yourself!

Just one blistering sunburn in childhood can double your little one’s lifetime risk of developing skin cancer. Young, sensitive skin is especially vulnerable to damaging UV rays. So sun protection should be integrated into your daily life when you go out and about with your kids. Not only during summer, but all year round.

The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric. It is very similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens. A garment with a UPF of 50 only allows 1/50th of the UV radiation falling on the surface of the garment to pass through it. In other words, it blocks 49/50ths or 98% of the UV radiation. UPF 50+ is the highest possible rating for a fabric.

Bamboo fabrics are light reflecting and naturally provide added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays. In addition the fabric of the blanket has a special weaving that ensures the blanket to provide UPF 50+ sun protection. So the Sun protection of our blankets  is not provided by chemical additives but solely by the weaving of the fabric.

The Cloby UV Blankets have been tested according to the following safety standards: EU regulation EN 13758-1 & US regulation AATCC 183:2010 (R2014)  to guarantee the UPF50+ sun protection. It also received the Seal of Approval of the Melanoma International Institute for it’s outstanding performance.

The blankets received a seal of approval from the Melanoma International Foundation. To earn their seal of approval, a product must validate it is effective in preventing sun damage to the skin. The seal is then provided to products that show outstanding sun protection and promote sun safe behavior.

They should be machine-washed cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, and low iron if needed. Do not iron the leather label!

 Please do not use any fabric softener or Oxi Clean to care for your garments as this will affect the moisture-wicking property of the fabric.

Research has shown that if you cover your stroller completely on warm days the temperature within the stroller can rise quickly.  We understand that parents still want to make sure their little ones can sleep peacefully in their stroller without being exposed to direct sunlight, wind or distractions. But safety first so take note of following instructions for covering up a stroller or car seat:

  • only use a lightweight blanket like our bamboo swaddle or Sun blanket, and never cover with a thick blanket or piece of clothing
  • Make sure not to cover your stroller completely but leave enough openings to make sure there is enough airflow coming in
  • don’t park your stroller in direct sunlight
  • and naturally check your little one regularly to make sure the temperature in the stroller is comfortable.

Regular application of an impregnation spray is recommended to keep water and dirt from sticking or soaking in. Better not use them in heavy rain.
