Knit leg warmers are made 100 % extra fine Merino wool. The wool is soft to touch and does not irritate the skin. For an impeccable matching style between mom and baby, you can pick from three different colours. The leg warmers have already been washed with a mild and natural detergent.
Merino wool comes from Merino sheep, one of the oldest and most widespread breeds of sheep in the world. Their fleece is known to have the finest hairs, making it extremely soft and thick. The diameter of each hair is measured in microns. Sheep wool usually has a 40 or more microns in diameter, compared to Merino sheep, whose fleece is 24 to 15 microns.
Excellent thermal regulation
Merino wool is an excellent regulator, meaning it holds in the heat coming off from the skin and wicks the moisture away from the body when it is too warm. This attribute makes the wool a comfortable wear for autumn and spring and also for cold winters.
The wool doesn’t irritate the skin and is hypoallergenic
The exceptionally fine diameter of the fleece, finer than human hair, makes it possible for the hairs to bend when pressing into the skin, making it non-irritating even when in contact with the most delicate children’s skin.
The natural fibers of Merino fleece are excellent at wicking away moisture and sweat which means the wool stays dry. This strong point makes it impossible for dust mites and bacteria to grow, giving the wool its hypoallergenic properties.
Washing is (almost) unnecessary
Excellent water drainage and lanolin are responsible for keeping the wool bacteria and odor free. Lanolin is a natural moisturizer which sheep produce to keep their fleece safe from extreme weather conditions. Similarly, we have found frequent washing to be unnecessary. It might prove far better to hang the knitwear outside to dry and air out.
Suitable for people with sensitive skin
Merino wool garments are also suitable for people who have sensitive skin or suffer from atopic dermatitis. A study [link] published in the “Dermatitis” journal proved that wearing extra fine Merino wool showed improvement in symptoms of atopic dermatitis.
Prewashed and ready to use
Before our products leave the knitting shop in Dvorje na Gorenjskem, they are carefully washed with a mild natural detergent which makes them ready for immediate use and makes sure, the product will not change shape after first washing at home.
Natural and sustainable
Merino wool is sustainable and 100% renewable.
- Sheep produce new fleeces every year, making wool a completely renewable material.
- Woolen fibers naturally decompose into soil enriching nutrients.
Leg warmers are available in three different colors:
- camel – darkest,
- sand - lighter
- grey - lightest
