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.

    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.

  8. Outerwear lives longer with Swedish Eco Outerwear Sponge Cloth!

    In Sweden, people wash their outerwear considerably less than we do in the U.S. It simply is not good for the life of the outerwear to over-wash it. It also is not good for the environment to over-wash clothes in general. At Polarn O. Pyret, we advise our customers that once you have washed one of our waterproof garments more than approximately 50 times, the “waterproofness” of that item will start to break down. A method to prevent this is by spot cleaning your outerwear with our Swedish Eco Outerwear Sponge Cloth. Watch our handy little video to understand how to use the cloth. Briefly, you need to wet the cloth, and then spot clean the area which shows dirt. It is perfectly fine to …

    Treebath is an after school program in NYC and their goal is to get kids (and adults!) outdoors. They want to help overcome the struggle of weather conditions that are not typically comfortable and help find and explore nature in a big city. Treebath’s values goes hand in hand and with Polarn O. Pyret’s! So we joined hands, and are now working together to get kids geared up for all weather conditions while enjoying the outdoors no matter the weather.
