    Our range of outerwear is designed with warmth and comfort in mind. Layering retains heat, leads moisture away from the body and keeps rain and snow at bay. Add or remove a layer when there is a change in weather or activity levels. LAYER 1 Merino wool or polyester base layers will lock in warmth next to the skin much better than cotton ever will. Good thermal layers should lead cold moisture away from the skin, and wool and polyester do the job perfectly. Look out for our kids thermals designed to look like everyday clothing, not just underwear, so they can do a good job inside and out this winter.

  7. Overall Fit

    December 15, 2015 by Polarn O. Pyret

    The winter season is here and children will need new outerwear. Isn’t it tempting to buy something that the child can grow into? Perhaps even an overall that will last for two seasons? For an overall’s functions to work in the best manner possible, however, the fit needs to be right from the start. Choosing the right overall size for your child: The child’s height is the most important factor when choosing size – measure the child at home or at one of our stores where there is always a measuring stick available. If the child’s height is between two sizes, it is best to choose the larger size. Don’t hesitate to ask for a store employee’s assistance. Our staff can easily ascertain which size …

    December 13, 2015 by Polarn O. Pyret

    December 13th is St Lucia Day, a time for singing, mulled spiced wine, and saffron buns. Originally a Catholic feast day, Lucia is a special day that is celebrated all around Sweden, especially in schools and nurseries. The day starts with a Lucia procession early in the morning when it is still dark outside. Lucia herself enters the room wearing a long white Lucia dress with a red silk ribbon around her waist and a crown of candles on her head. She is followed by singing flower girls with glitter in their hair, star boys wearing cone hats, and last but not least, mischievous gingerbread men and elves. It is a delightful and much loved tradition with candles and holiday songs that for many people …

  9. Dressing Smart with Layers

    0

    October 26, 2015 by Polarn O. Pyret

    The layering principle is just as simple as it is ingenious. Dressing your kids in layers will keep them warm and dry. But it’s not the clothes themselves that provide the most warmth – it’s the air between each layer. Hold in the warmth, let out the moisture, and keep the rain and snow at bay! LAYER 1: BASE LAYER – NEXT TO THE SKIN The purpose of the base layer is to keep the body warm. Children who run around and play outdoors when it’s cold generate heat and moisture that need to be transported away from their bodies. A wool base layer is warm even if it gets damp and a polyester base layer, while generally not as warm, wicks moisture away from …

  10. Swedish Day Care Philosophy

    September 21, 2015 by Jenny Lonnstam

    It’s a crisp November morning in Sweden, the daily song and dance hour has almost come to an end at “Förskolan Solen” (Daycare Sun). 15 children and 3 teachers finish a nutritious fruit snack before heading outside to 20º F and a thin layer of white powdery snow on the ground. Children begin to pair into small groups, while teachers escort kids to their cubbies. Every child has their own little area with hooks, shelves and drawers where they keep all their clothing. Properly hung, folded and name-labeled. Learning to dress for weather is a very important lesson for the day. The first layer of clothing applied is soft, comfortable play clothes, followed by a base layer of Merino Wool. The second layer a set …
