our blog / organic merino
School is definitely back! Some call it the silly season, and rightly so, especially if you have two or more little ones to pack lunches for, get up and out the door in the mornings.
Whether you have one or more excited first-timers or seasoned campaigners to look out for this season, most moms are already wishing for a little more practicality in the daily struggle that is the back-to-school routine.
While our organic merino wool is created with a lot of care and truly nature's miracle fibre, that doesn't mean it is difficult to care for.
In fact, merino wool is one of the easiest fibres to care for, and doesn't need to be washed as often as many other fabrics. And no need to flat-dry, simply air-dry as normal (and tumble dry if it's too wet and rainy!)
July is a very special month, wherever you are in the world. The schools are out and for many families, that means fun holidays in the great outdoors; from swimming and music festivals in the northern hemisphere, to skiing and stories by the campfire in the southern hemisphere.
While these are definitely special times spent enjoying nature and bonding with family, the idea of packing for an outdoors adventure with small children causes the shivers in some parents, mostly because we know how fragile babies are to the elements.
The truth is, however, that with proper planning and preparation, you shouldn't worry about taking your little ones on holiday, and letting them run free and be kids.
We all know how sensitive our babies' skins are, so you'd think that buying super-soft, easy to wash and flame retardant garments will keep their skin protected in pure and soft surroundings.
The reality is a lot of fabrics commonly used in garments may be harmful to your baby's skin, even in small doses.
