Livvie Liz Shady Creations (LLSC) products are multiuse blankets and shawls that are made with a specific weave and treated with titanium dioxide to make them Sun Protection Factor 50 (SPF50) products. Unlike regular blankets we used to place over our children or ourselves, LLSC products are lightweight, moisture wicking and incredibly soft. Livvie Liz produces light, wearable products made of soft-to-the-skin fabric that blocks at least 97% of harmful UV light rays. In addition, unlike other products similar to Livvie Liz, our products are made and produced in the United States.
There are three types of Livvie Liz products. The multiuse blanket can be used as a lap blanket for sporting events or other outdoor activities, as well as a throw over for our pets or children. It can also be used as a nursing blanket to protect both the mother and the child from the heat and damaging rays of the sun. The rectangular shawl can be used to cover your arms and shoulders or also as a lap blanket. The hooded shawl can be used to cover you head, hair, and shoulders and arms.
