WOOL – NICE AND SOFT

In the cold and changing weather, you need to choose the right materials for your children. Wool can be used throughout the whole year because it regulates the temperature. It absorbs sweat so the skin always feels nice and dry.. Wool is perfect for a nap or under rain wear and snowsuits.

When are the different types of wool used?

BRUSHED WOOL

Fleece-products made from brushed wool is much softer than boiled wool. It is perfect for a nap or a ride in the car. It is also warm and comfortable under i.e. rainwear, jackets or snowsuits. Only use it for shorter trips on the playground, as it absorbs water faster than the boiled wool. Brushed wool products from mikk-line is Oeko-Tex certified. It is made from the finest and softest mulesing free merino wool. The products have TOTAL EASY CARE, which makes the wool more durable and less peeling.

PRODUCTS: Suits, pullovers, jackets, pants, hats, mittens and footies.

BOILED WOOL

Boiled wool is not as soft as our brushed wool. It is more durable, as the fabric is thick and tightly woven. Boiled wool is more wind and water repellent, so it is perfect for outdoor activities i.e. when your child is cycling or playing in the sandbox. Boiled wool from mikk-line is Oeko-Tex certified.

PRODUCTS: Suits, pullovers, jackets, pants, hats, mittens and footies.

THIN WOOL

We recommend using thin wool as base layer close to the skin. Children often don’t even notice that they are freezing and need more clothes. They need clothes that keep them warm, dry and comfortable all day. Thin wool is both soft, breathable, sweat-transporting and temperature-regulating. Thin wool from mikk-line is made from the finest and softest mulesing free merino wool.

PRODUCTS: Suits, body, sweaters, trousers, underwear and hats
