Organic Merino Wool/Silk Baby Trousers
Trousers just don’t get any more comfortable or versatile than these. The wonderful, breathable combination of 70% organic merino wool and 30% silk is very gentle on the skin and helps maintain an even body temperature.
The wide waistband can be worn up or down and stretches very gently over little bellies, even when they’re very full! They are cut for maximum wear as the elasticated cuffs and stretchy waistband mean they can sized up and worn baggy until the leg length fits perfectly.
Perfect as pyjamas or pottering about during the day — if only they came in adult sizes! They can be paired with our matching Engel long-sleeved vests or baby bodies.
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.
