Rather than put a total kibosh on the super-rich wool, designers are incorporating cashmere into more kid-friendly weaves. Bambeeno Cashmere, which made a name for itself with its adorable eco-friendly designs, is now incorporating the lux yarn into cotton pieces. The 90 percent cotton and 10 percent cashmere rompers, sweaters and blankets come in perfectly preppy designs with stripes, scalloped edges and sailboat motifs (starting at $64). The new blends will keep mom from chasing after her tykes with a wipe too, as the pieces are all machine washable.
Cashmere may be soft and cuddly, but it isn't practical for babies. What mama wants to stress about her lil one spitting up or dripping ice cream on their Sunday best.
