3 reasons why your child should wear wool

The winter months can be harsh for little ones that spend a lot of time outdoors in clothing that is either too warm or not warm enough. If you want to make sure your child is dressed appropriately, use wool as the foundation. Here, we give you three good reasons why.

3 reasons why your child should wear wool


As soon as children get out onto the playground, it’s full speed ahead. They run, bike, slide, and climb. Therefore, they need underwear that gives them freedom of movement, helps keep them warm and also keeps the sweat away when they are running around. Woollen underwear makes sure of that.


The right body temperature is essential for good sleep. Woollen underwear can help your child regulate its body temperature by allowing their bodies to breathe, as well as keeping them warm and wicking away moisture if needed. At the same time, it keeps your child warm when they kick off the covers at night. This ensures your child gets a good, much-needed sleep.


Children sweat, drool, jump in puddles, and play in sandboxes. For these reasons your child needs to be kept dry. Woollen underwear helps do that. The innermost layer of woollen underwear can absorb five times as much moisture from the child’s body as cotton underwear. This way, woollen underwear keeps your child dry, warm, and healthy. (Remember! If using a wool/cotton blend where the cotton is on the inside, the wool doesn’t really come into effect as it can’t dry the cotton from without.)
