3 reasons why your child should wear wool

The winter months can be harsh for little ones that spend a lot of time outside, either in clothing that is too warm, or not warm enough. To make sure your child is dressed appropriately, use wool as the base layer for any outfit. Here are three reasons why.


As soon as your children get out in the playground, it’s full speed ahead. They run, bike, slide, and climb, therefore they need underwear that will give them plenty of freedom to move and helps keep the warm, whilst wicking sweat away when they are running around. DILLING’s woollen underwear is sure to do this.


Being the right body temperature is essential for a good night’s sleep. Woollen underwear can make this happen by helping your child regulate their body temperature and allowing their body to breathe. Wool will keep your child warm when they kick off their covers and help wick moisture if needed.


Your children sweat, dribble, jump in puddles, and roll around on the floor, therefore they need to be kept dry, and woollen underwear helps do this. The base layer of wool can absorb up to five times as much moisture from your child’s body as cotton can. C. This way, woollen underwear helps your child stay dry and warm. (Remember, if using a wool/cotton blend with cotton on the inside, the wool doesn’t come into effect as it can’t dry the cotton beneath it.)
