SewKatiepie offers boutique infants and childrens wear designed and handmade in New Zealand by me, Kate. My favourite fabrics are cotton and PURE New Zealand Merino Wool jersey fabric (my fabric is grown,spun, knitted and dyed in NZ). I LOVE merino because it is:

* 100% natural and biodegradeable
* a fine fibre - it does not irritate the skin like traditional wool. I use the softest, lightest merino wool available - you won't believe this is wool. Are you still dubious? Ask me to send you some samples so that you can feel the fabric for yourself.
* allows the wearers skin to breathe (so the wearer will not overheat - particularly important for infants). You won't feel like you are wearing wool on a warm day, but when the temperature drops you'll feel the warmth.
* warm even when wet (dribble or spills) - Merino sheep are raised in harsh high country environments. They survive in the snow.
* offers natural UV protection
* naturally flame retardant and self-extinguishing
* parent friendly - machine washable!!! Yes, you can wash a SewKatiepie garment in your washing machine with no fear of shrinkage, felting or pilling. It can even be tumble dried on a low heat setting if you are really short on time. Although, given the nature of the fabric, it does dry easily and quickly on a drying rack.
* a renewable, natural fibre which is ethically farmed. It is produced in free range farming systems, which are animal and environment friendly. My merino is sourced from suppliers who select thier farms chosen for their commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability in farm management practices, as well as the superb quality of their Merino wool.
* durable and colour fast. Unlike cotton, you can wash and wash your SewKatiepie garment with no noticable colour fading or wear.
* superior insulation without bulk
* naturally odour and spill resistant - this means less washing is required than say a cotton garment

If you'd like to feel the fabric for yourself, please have a look at my listing for SewKatiepie Merino Samples - I can post some samples to you.

I can make CUSTOM ORDERS for you - please just ask.
I can make ADULT SIZES and larger CHILDRENS sizes for you - please just ask.

Please also note that a lot of my designs are interchangable with fabric options. If you are interested in a particular design but in a different fabric colour, please do just ask me.
