Use a gentle wool cycle or rinse through by hand. Use specially-designed wool detergent (such as the ones sold on this site) to maintain softness and prolong their life.
After customer feedback we have updated our sizing. Sizing is now translated from the German labelling as follows:
- 56-62 -- 0-6m (will be too big for newborns but should fit from around 2m onwards)
- 68-74 -- 6-12m
- 80-86 -- 12-24m
- 92cm -- 2-3 years
- 98cm -- 3-4 years
- 104cm -- 4-5 years
Children come in all shapes and sizes. Please let us know if this sizing works for your child!
Is this wool organic?
This wool is not certified as organic. We have asked the manufacturer whether they will be moving to organic status, and he told us that the costs involved are prohibitive and that they won't be doing so. The wool comes from Patagonia, where the cold winters keep the sheep healthy, minimising the need for any chemical treatment. Very little of this fine wool suitable for hosiery (what a great word) is now made.
