    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.

    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.

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 is a piece of clothing actually created? What is the process beforehand? Designer Susan has the answers to these questions as well as a few more! Everything begins with a discussion regarding which print the garment is to have. Our print designers then draw it. Together the designers consider different color schemes and then decide which ones will be on the prints for the garments. When this has been done, an original is sent to the supplier for a print trial on fabric. Testing is the next step. The supplier sends garments in accordance with the instructions on the garment sketch and measurement list, and we test them at the head office. The design assistant and pattern maker check the fit and make sure …
