Organic Merino Wool Fleece Overall with Fold Over Cuffs
These snugglesuits are made from organic merino wool and are lightweight and breathable yet lovely and cosy. The wool is incredibly soft! Only healthy, azo free dyes are used and the wool is only partly dyed to reduce the environmental impact, creating pretty melange effect fleece.
The air trapped in the fibres forms an insulating layer around your baby keeping them warm while (unlike a synthetic fabric), allowing excess heat and moisture to escape. Wool is the very best material for babies as it regulates body temperature and minimises the possibility of overheating. These are not as thick as our Disana snugglesuits so are perfect for mild days in autumn and spring as well as winter.
Both feet and hands have integral cuffs for extra warmth on trips outside on cold days.
Care: These should be aired instead of washed whenever possible and you’ll find it’s rare that they need washing at all. When necessary, they should be hand washed in tepid water with a gentle detergent. Gently squeeze out the excess water and then roll in a towel to remove the rest and lay flat to dry.
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.
