Wool – nature’s super material! Even if it’s freezing outdoors, your child will perspire when they run around playing. It’s important that this moisture gets wicked away from their body, or they will soon start feeling unpleasantly damp and chilly. Yet obviously you want their clothes to keep them warm in wintery weather. The solution is a material that keeps their body warm and dry. This is why we recommend a wool base layer. Wool is nature’s super material, as it keeps the body really warm – even if it gets wet – yet still breathes, so moisture gets wicked away from the body. Wool is also especially good for newborn babies and infants, who haven’t yet developed the same ability to regulate their body …

Our guide to your child’s summer wardrobe Summer weather can be very unpredictable – one day all bright sunshine and blue skies, the next day dull, grey and rainy. This is what makes it so difficult to know which garments your child really needs in their summer wardrobe. Polarn O. Pyret store manager Marie Wall guides us through some of the questions that parents often ask us about summer clothes for children.  What should I keep in mind when I buy summer clothes for my child?  Your child needs garments that protect them from the sun’s UV rays – this means long sleeves, and a cap or sun hat to protect their head.

Jean details

In the beginning, the people who used jeans were miners and cowboys – today they are more or less in everybody’s wardrobe, especially small tree climbers and adventurers! Polarn O. Pyret has five fits for all possible and impossible types of activities. Select the fit based on the type of activity – Skinny fit with lots of stretch is good for tree climbing to prevent getting caught in the branches. Loose fit might be a good alternative for a disco party. Then there is naturally the matter of taste and preference! Most important is that children get to be children – in the right jeans for all activities. SKINNY- Our most slender pants with lots of stretch. SLIM- Very slender in the leg with lots …

Find the right size Simply measure your child’s height to find the right size for them. But keep in mind that children tend to have growth spurts, so always use an up-to-date measurement. Your child’s height in inches tells you which clothing size you need. We specify ages next to each size as a rough guide if it’s not possible to measure their height. But always measure if you have the chance to do so. How should the item fit? When choosing ordinary clothes, be guided by what feels most comfortable for your child. Make sure that your child can move freely, and that no part of the item feels tight or chafes. The ends of the sleeves should not be too short or hang …

How to dress your baby as winter turns to spring One of the questions that we often get asked is about the best way to dress your baby in the transitional period between winter and spring, when the weather is unpredictable, and can alternate between chilly and mild in a short space of time. As all children are different, it’s impossible for us to say exactly what will suit your baby, but here are our top tips! Dress in layers Newborn babies don’t sweat the same way older children and adults do, therefore they don’t need to wear clothes that transport moisture from the body. Most important is for the clothes to be comfortable and warm. We recommend thermal layer (layer 1) in wool or …
