shrink more than other wool/silk blends

"The product is lovely, soft, non-itchy. My son lived in this for as long as the size lasted. It's quite stretchy as well. i loved the sight of my son in the last life of this top - as his pot belly looked so cute and funny. But I sympathize with the other reviewer about the shrinking issue. I invested several of these and woollen trousers, leggings - the whole medley. One by one, most of them got shrunk mainly because various people put them in the normal wash. It's not really a problem with this particular product, but i have to say that comparing various brands, this one seems to shrink the most. I am not quite sure why because its blended with silk and the other baby body we got (label reads exactly same blends) never seems to shrink at all. if you are confident with hand-washing and training your family members, this is a great innerwear that your baby can live in."

This was washed... my partner shrunk it

This was worn by... 6 month onwards

Sizing: A little small

"These bodies make me, my husband and my baby happy. She practically lives in this natural, breathable fabric that keeps her warm as needed and never overheats her. I wash them on cold, "hand wash" cycle on our Bosch washing machine and they are very well preserved despite many washes (I will admit that my husband initially shrunk one on the wrong cycle but we learned from our mistake). I don't mind the stains at all. These serve as a vital underlayer - just pop a jumper or cotton shirt over them and nobody has any idea about the tomato sauce underneath!Of all the clothing we have purchased for her, this has been our best investment."

This was washed... washed fine

This was worn by... My 14 month old daughter, starting at 3 months

I wouldn't really recommend this to a friend.

"I love merino wool and I spend almost 100£ to buy from Cambridge baby merino bodies. They are a fantastic soft material. And I was very excited because I have only used so far organic cotton. Unfortunately almost all of my merino bodies got ruined in the washing machine (30 Degrees wool cycle with special wool detergent also brought from Cambridge baby) I bought the bodies with the best intention: I will ALWAYS hand wash !!! So that's what I did the first time. I bought lanolin creme. But the bodies got stained from the wool fat so I thought its best to wash them in the machine. They all shrunk and changed. Although it's great material kids get sick,play in the mud,eat blueberry and so on, My daughter is 14 months and she had diarrhea because of teething. The bodies got stained but you can only wash them on max.40Degrees. I was so sad to see everything getting ruined. My mum said: "if you have children you need clothes which are properly washable" and although I would love to buy every"

This was washed... Got ruined in 30 Degree wool cycle with wool detergent

This was worn by... My 14 months old daughter

"I am so sorry that you have not been happy with your Merino wool baby bodies. It is true that they can not be washed at such high temperatures as cotton clothes and so they may over time become stained, but rather than machine-washing them, I would recommend using a stain remover, although even then it may not be possible to remove all stains. However the benefits of wool I feel out weigh the downside of some staining over time. You may be interested to know that we do stock machine-washable Merino wool (in fact, Engel, the wool specialists who made this piece) have just brought out a new range. We've also found that the wool/silk blend washes more reliably than the soft, natural, organic Merino wool on its own which does need to be treated with more care."
