100% Van Beren Merino Wool
We choose merino wool because it is the best natural clothing choice for babies and young children. It is created with the environmentally friendly EXP process and has wide ranging benefits. Merino wool feels soft against your baby’s skin and does not cause any irritations. It is suitable for both, machine wash at 30 degrees and for tumble drying. But if you like your wool elastic and extraordinarily soft you want to dry it flat on a towel.
Merino wool is antibacterial, dries quickly, remains soft and flows with your baby’s movements to ensure for a great play day.
EXP is an environmentally friendly anti-felting treatment that is free from chlorine and toxic salts. In addition, EXP requires only 50% as much water as conventional treatments do.
WE LOVE MERINO WOOL!
Wool is so versatile, one might think it was developed in a chemical lab. But it was Mother Nature who created wool to be the perfect raw material for baby textiles.
The natural fibre has qualities, no other material can match:
Wool stores our body heat when it is cold outside, but also cools us down when it is hot.
It has the ability to absorb humidity without feeling damp.
It is breathable and is SELF CLEANING. Airing them for even a short time is enough for wool products to neutralize and feel fresh again.
Wool is dirt repellent. Even liquid dirt is unable to penetrate the fibre but rather stays on the surface, when it can be brushed off easily.
Wool is also able to bind and neutralize sweat.
So all in all, there are more than enough reasons to use wool for our designs.
