Italian Merino Wool Active Wear or Pajamas for Baby- 12 months

All materials used are 100% repurposed and of the highest quality.

These are crafted from a superfine thickly felted merino wool. Stripes of teal, forest green, soft gray and deep purple and buttons of emerald green give a classic and fun feel to the garment. The buttons are non-functional but there is plenty of room for a comfortable on and off over your little ones head. The cut of the pants is modeled after my previous yogi pants which are excellent for freedom of movement.

Merino wool is my new love. I recently made a similar pair for my son. They are now a staple piece in his "wardrobe". Cozy enough for jammies, warm enough for long johns and layers and the shirt is nice enough to wear out of the house for an afternoon of activities. The texture and luster of the material is truly divine to both touch and the eye.

Hand wash with mild detergent when needed ,lay flat to dry. Can take a low heat iron.

.....and now a bit from Wikipedia-

Merino wool is common in high-end, performance athletic wear. Typically meant for use running, hiking, skiing, mountain climbing, cycling, and in other types of outdoor aerobic exercise, these clothes command a premium over synthetic fabrics.

Several properties contribute to merino's popularity for exercise clothing, compared to wool in general and to other types of fabric.

* Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture (sweat) away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking. The fabric is slightly moisture repellent (keratin fibers are hydrophobic at one end and hydrophilic at the other), allowing the user to avoid the feeling of wetness.

* Like cotton, wool absorbs water (up to 1/3 its weight), but, unlike cotton, wool retains warmth when wet.

* Like most wools, merino contains lanolin which has antibacterial properties.

* Merino is one of the softest types of wool available, due to finer fibers and smaller scales.

* Merino has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools, in part because the smaller fibers have microscopic cortices of dead air, trapping body heat similar to the way a sleeping bag warms its occupant.
