Frequently Asked Questions
What is a lovey?
A lovey (also known as a security blanket) is a small blanket that is introduced to babies early on to provide comfort and feelings of security. Nyx and Gray lovey blankets measure approximately 18 x 18 inches with some exceptions for certain designs. We make them this size to comfortably tuck into infant car seats or strollers and to easily fit into diaper bags, making them great for travel. Each lovey includes a silky satin ribbon near one corner for little hands to hold or to easily attach to a blanket clip.
Our mini sized loveys measure approximately 8 x 8 inches. They include a gross grain ribbon at one corner with a durable KAM snap for attaching a teether or pacifier. This size blanket makes a perfect soft sensory toy for babies and helps ensure a teether or pacifier won't get lost.
How should I care for my item?
The unique custom printed fabrics we use at Nyx and Gray are designed by independent artists and designers and are custom printed using environmentally friendly methods. The eco-friendly printing process is done with water-based inks and although these pigments are fade resistant, some fading with eventually occur with the organic cotton knit. All of our fabrics are machine washable, including minky and faux fur. We recommend washing all of our items on a delicate cycle with like colors and gentle, phosphate-free detergents (avoid washing with jeans or other heavy and abrasive items such as zippers). Tumble dry on the lowest setting or hang dry for the best results. All of our fabrics (with the exception of our muslin blankets) are pre-washed to avoid shrinkage.
For minky and faux fur avoid using fabric softeners and do not iron.
For the mini loveys with teether/pacifier attachment, remove the teether or pacifier prior to washing. Hand-wash wooden teethers. Reseal and moisturize with coconut oil or olive oil as needed.
