Monkey In The Middle

Quit monkeying around and come cuddle! Done in the same iconic colors of the sock monkey, this super-cozy blanket is made from leftover material collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded. 75% recycled cotton, 25% acrylic. Each is slightly different in color and pattern in order to get the most out of the fabric scraps and minimize waste. Made in the USA.

Not intended for sleepwear.

Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness, and high-quality American-made designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

I really like this blanket: good style, soft, re-purposed ("green") materials. And the price is right in line with other good quality baby blankets. I haven't had it long enough to determine if it will wear well, but it seems like it will. Good quality and good weight/heft to it. All in all, it's a great purchase. The ONLY reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is a personal preference for square baby blankets.

My 7 year old daughter saw this blanket somewhere on line and asked Santa for it. I never would have paid [$] for a blanket if she hadn't asked Santa. It's way too expensive for the quality and size. I was very dissappointed. The good news it, she loves it.

                          All I can tell you is that I'm as old as dirt, and I have ALWAYS loved sock monkey. I'm going to make sure others do too, so this was a baby gift. It came beautifully wrapped, so I can't tell you anything about the color or feel. But I never question the quality of a product from Uncommon Goods!
