THERMAL UNDERWEAR AND
NIGHTWEAR OF WOOL
Woollens are wonderful nightwear as well, whether your child is cold or warm at night. Wool nightwear helps the child stay warm, but also transfers heat and moisture away from the body if the child starts sweating.
We also love knitted vests, cardigans and sweaters made of a mix of wool and other materials like cotton and polyester. That means they are soft and durable and also have the wonderful qualities of the wool. All our wool comes from sheep that don't undergo mulesing. Mulesing is a painful procedure performed on some sheep, whose wool we have chosen not to use.
WOOL WASHING AND CARE
Don't let the care and washing recommendations for wool put you off. It is a fantastic material, that you and your children are going to enjoy for a long time, and that can be used for many purposes.
5 TIPS FOR WASHING WOOL
1. Wool is self-cleaning - hang or lay it in fresh air and wash rarely.
2. Always follow the care instructions - or wash at 30° and at a gentle cycle and use wool detergent.
3. When handwashing, use lukewarm water (around 30°) and mild wool detergent. Handle gently and avoid wringing wool garments. Wash and rinse at the same temperature.
4. Don't let woollens soak and dry flat at room temperature right after washing. Avoid tumble drying your wool clothes - it might shrink.
5. Lay flat to dry across a drying rack or on a towel at room temperature - avoid direct sunlight. Avoid hanging wool clothes on a drying rack or hangers.
