How does your body grow?
Our bodysuit uses a special knitting technique and pattern that does not require the use of elastane or similar synthetic fibers and is still elastic. This unique combination allows the bodysuit to grow up to 6 sizes.
Why does your wool-silk (WS) bodysuit cost more than other WS bodysuits?
• Made in Germany: We have our bodysuits sewn in Germany.
• Handcrafted quality: Our bodysuits are hand-sewn with great care and attention to detail. Due to the many seams, production is more complex and costs more.
• Sustainable materials: We use certified materials (OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 Class 1) that meet the highest standards. We also have our fabric knitted in Europe. High-quality materials such as wool and silk are more expensive to procure.
• Small production quantities: As a start-up, we cannot yet benefit from the volume discounts available to larger companies. Our limited production capacity results in higher unit costs.
• Compact spinning process: Our fabric is produced using a compact spinning process that makes it softer and prevents pilling. This preserves the shine of the fabric and makes it more robust. Due to these high quality properties, our fabric is more expensive than other manufacturers.
• Fair wages for seamstresses: Our seamstresses receive an appropriate hourly wage for their valuable work. We are committed to fair working conditions and fair pay.
• 6 in 1: Our bodysuits grow up to 6 sizes with the child.
Does the material of your bodysuit contain elastane?
No, our bodysuits do not contain elastane. The knit stitch allows our fabric to have stretch, supported by the natural fine crimp in the wool fiber. This gives the textile surface a certain bounce, making the fabric elastic without synthetic fibers.
Does the bodysuit grow a second time if you have a second child, or is the material stretched out?
The bodysuit returns to its original shape after each wash.
Are there also short-sleeved bodies?
Yes, from summer 2024 we will also offer short-sleeved bodysuits.
Why do you have to wash your bodysuits less?
• Wool and silk are naturally dirt and odor resistant.
• The fibers of wool and silk resemble roof tiles, making it difficult for dirt to settle.
• Wool and silk have a high self-cleaning power as they wick moisture away from the skin and at the same time repel dirt particles.
• Wool and silk can often be easily aired out to remove unpleasant odors, while cotton bodysuits need to be washed more often to stay fresh.
• The special structure of wool and silk makes them less susceptible to soiling, so they need to be washed less often to maintain their functionality and lifespan.
Does the material wear out quickly?
The bodysuit becomes a little looser after being worn for a long time, but returns to its original shape after washing.
Can you explain how you can get by with just 4 bodies of yours?
Due to the natural properties of wool and silk, our bodysuits dry faster than cotton. Wool absorbs moisture without feeling damp, and silk promotes rapid evaporation. Assuming a bodysuit was washed and wrung out in the morning, it could theoretically be used again the same day. The high breathability and quick drying time make our bodysuits practical for everyday use. Parents therefore need fewer bodysuits to ensure one is always available. The combination of natural self-cleaning, quick drying and hypoallergenic properties makes our wool silk bodysuits an ideal choice for parents looking for a sustainable and comfortable option for their babies.
What are the benefits of wool silk for babies and children?
Natural breathability: Wool and silk are natural fibers that offer excellent breathability. They allow for continuous air exchange and help regulate the baby's body temperature. This keeps babies warm without overheating.
• Hypoallergenic: Wool and silk are hypoallergenic and are therefore good for sensitive baby skin. They cause less skin irritation and allergies compared to synthetic materials.
• Dirt and odor resistant: The fibers of wool and silk have a natural protective layer that makes it difficult for dirt and odors to penetrate. This means that items of clothing stay fresh longer and need to be washed less frequently.
• Self-cleaning: Wool and silk have a high self-cleaning power. They wick moisture away from the skin and repel dirt particles, meaning they need to be washed less often to stay clean.
• Soft and comfortable : Wool and silk are particularly soft materials that feel pleasant on the skin. They offer a high level of comfort and are gentle on baby's delicate skin.
• Sustainability : Wool and silk are natural and sustainable materials. They are biodegradable and have a smaller environmental footprint compared to many synthetic materials.
• Stretchability and flexibility: Despite their strength, wool and silk are elastic. They retain their shape and adapt to the baby's movements without being restrictive.
• Temperature regulation: Wool and silk help regulate the baby's body temperature. They keep you warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm. This is particularly important for newborns, whose ability to regulate temperature is not yet fully developed.
