Empowering Women in Latin America's Poorest Country

My name is Sandy Jacoby, and I’m the original heart and fingers behind Sheep Dreamzzz baby blankets. When I became a first-time grandmother to Sarah Kate and Malachi in 2017, I knitted each of them a cuddly blanket I hoped they would treasure. Other moms started asking my daughters where they could get the blanket for their little ones, which gave me an idea: I could teach women in the rural Nicaraguan community where my husband and I serve with our non-profit, Sheep Not Goats, to knit baby blankets in order to earn income to feed their families and break the cycle of relying upin handouts and taking out loans to survive.

Providing income opportunities for the poor was already the mission of our 501(c)(3) non-profit, Sheep Not Goats. We've built a farm; now we have something for the women of our community. And they have become expert knitters. We use high-quality yarn and are diligent about quality in the work. Our women knit 5 days a week, and it shows.

Here's where you enter the story. Your purchase of a hand-made Sheep Dreamzzz baby blanket helps empower a woman in Malpaisillo; in fact, the sale of a blanket feeds a family for over a week.

It's that simple. High-quality materials and love in each careful stitch make these blankets extra snuggly. We're sure your baby will approve.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We are happy to make one of our blankets in custom colors that you specify, or without sheep. And we won't charge anything extra unless we have to use more expensive yarn to do it (it might entail buying just a few skeins in a color we're not purchasing at our normal wholesale prices).

A custom blanket takes extra time since we take yarn to Nicaragua from the US, after which we are in Nicaragua for 3-4 weeks before we can come back and ship your blanket. But we can keep you up-to-date on the progress along the way and even send you photos.

At this writing we are making a custom blanket in Green Bay Packers colors!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Blankets come neatly folded in a clear plastic bag tied off with a ribbon. Our choice of ribbon is influenced by whether or not you tell us the blankets if for a boy or girl, or if you don't know. Attached with the ribbon is a card about the blanket and where it came from, with full-color photos of some of the knitters.
