Scandinavian baby and young children’s clothes are sized in centimetres, so the best way to get an indication of the required size is to measure your child
Size 56 = 56cm – Newborn
If your child is between sizes or is big for their age, the best way is to go the next size up.
WOOL AND WOOL/SILK CARE
Wool and silk/wool do not need as much washing as cotton. These fabrics are repellent to bacterial growth and have amazing self-cleaning properties. Air these garments frequently and you will find they smell fresh for many wears
This should be gently hand washed or machine washed on a 30 deg wool cycle using a specialist detergent for delicate fabrics only.
Wool is very sensitive to both temperature and pH so never use cold water, or a cold rinse after a warm wash as this can 'shock' the wool and cause matting. It's also essential to use a proper wool detergent.
An occasional light lanolin treatment will also prolong the life and help maintain the natural waterproof and dirt resistant qualities. More more information see our washing and care section here
Spread to dry flat away from a direct heat source. They can be hung on the line to dry if they are not too wet (which may cause the garment to stretch out of shape).
For tough stains use gall soap, a powerful natural stain remover which is kind to delicate fabrics. Dab the gall soap on to the stain, leave a few minutes then wash as normal.
We don’t recommend dry-cleaning any fabrics used by children due to the toxic chemical perchloroethylene which remains in the fabric after cleaning.
Pilling occurs naturally with many wool products and you can find out more about how to deal with this here.
