Is there anything more wonderful than children playing outside in the fresh air – whether it be a clear autumn day or a crisp day in December. Even when it is cold outside, however, children actively playing outdoors, easily get sweaty. To prevent the child from getting cold, moisture must be be wicked away from the body. A wool base layer keeps the child’s body warm and dry. Polarn O. Pyret’s wool base layer is made of soft merino wool that does not itch.
Wool is particularly appropriate for newborns and small children since they are unable to regulate temperature in the same way as older children and adults.
We offer wool both as the first layer against the body and as a wool blend mid layer to help ensure dry, happy and warm children.
Did you know that:
- A wool base layer keeps children warm – even if the wool gets damp.
- A baby’s body has difficulty regulating temperature. Wool is perfect as the innermost layer since it helps regulate temperature.
- Wool blends are perfectly suited as the mid layer (layer 2).
