Cashmere has been popular for generations and for the longest, associated to an elite lifestyle. I was introduced to cashmere in my early 20’s, and I instantly felt in love with this fabric! It was a cashmere sweater given to me as a gift for my birthday. If you have never felt cashmere a.k.a “ THE SOFT GOLD”, feel it for yourself, that the only material you will ever want against your skin.

I wonder why I had never purchased a cashmere sweater for myself. As many, I had preconceptions regarding cashmere; I considered it to be luxury item and expensive for no reason (I was a broke student at the time). The truth is, I lacked knowledge on the benefits of this unique material which justifies its premium price. Cashmere is an amazing natural fiber that is extremely addictive once you have acquired your first piece. While cashmere is generally considered a luxury item, it has gained in popularity and prices vary with more affordable cashmere outfits that are of good quality.

When I had my first baby, I couldn’t find any other material that had as many benefits for babies as cashmere. That is the story behind the creation of my clothing brand Mila Christina CASHMERE FOR BABIES & KIDS.

If  you still frown upon dressing your special little ones in cashmere, you might want to re consider after reading this:  

 

Cashmere is 100% Natural!

Cashmere yarn that comes from the undercoat of   cashmere  goats, an animal that lives mainly in Mongolia and China it is 100% natural. Despite the recent rise in synthetic materials especially in the baby clothing industry, nothing compares to the feel of natural fabrics especially when it comes to your baby. Why put on your baby’s delicate skin a material that has been engineered in a lab or crafted with unwanted chemicals? 100% natural fibers always lower allergy risks for babies. THE REAL THING!

 

 

Soothing and Promotes Sleep

Cashmere is one of the softest materials available for babies. Its soft texture soothes and comforts fussy babies. With its skin-friendliness and thermo-regulation properties, babies have been proven to sleep better and longer on cashmere.

 

Gentle and Hypoallergenic

Possibly thanks to memories of cheap, scratchy wool sweaters from childhood, mine comes from a scratchy blue wool blanket! (I still have a vivid memory, that how much it traumatized me) some customers are concerned that our cashmere baby bodysuits and kids’ cashmere sweaters may irritate their baby’s skin or make them itch. NOOOO THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN!

Cashmere fibers are soft and feels great against the skin. The fibers are much finer than wool and are spun tightly to produce a smooth, soft texture feel that is nothing but comfortable and will not irritate your little one’s sensitive skin.

Have you ever worn a sweater that instantly makes you sneeze or get watery eyes? Not a good experience, Cashmere has HYPOALLERGENIC properties which means a low risk of skin allergies. If your baby suffers from skin allergies, you may want to choose our cashmere baby bodysuits for this reason. When worn, it will not irritate their skin, nor trigger an allergic reaction. This unique property of cashmere makes it a desirable choice for baby clothes and blanketsespecially for babies with skin allergies and eczema.

 

 

Keeps them Warm & Cozzzzyyy

Cashmere is extremely light and yet, it is 3 times warmer than regular ships wool which makes it the ideal winter essential for babies of all ages. It feels incredibly snug and lush against your skin. Up to around 18 months old, babies find it hard to regulate their own temperature. This is due to the size of the surface area of their skin compared to their body weight. Little ones, especially if they are sick or were born prematurely can lose body heat quickly if they are not kept warm enough. In fact, they need to be kept a little warmer than your average. Mila Christina cashmere baby bodysuits will do the job just fine!

 

Thermo-regulating abilities

Parents often worry that our cashmere baby bodysuits and kids’ cashmere sweaters will make their babies hot and sweaty.  Let me tell you another unique quality of Cashmere. Cashmere is a versatile fabric, high in moisture content  which allows the fibers to easily adapts to the body’s temperature. This means that cashmere has the ability to keep your baby’s body warm in colder temperatures and cool in hot weather. Unlike synthetic fibers which can leave you hot and sweaty, cashmere allows your body to breathe which helps regulate the body's temperature.

You can rarely find a fabric that provides such good insulation and air flow at the same time.

Sooo Comfy

Cashmere is popular for its plush, silky and luxury feel which comes from the high loft fiber (air within the fiber). Cashmere is extremely lightweight which does bulk up your baby in the wintertime making them very uncomfortable.

The springiness of the cashmere fibers gives it good elasticity - it stretches really well and goes back into shape which allows ease of movement for those active babies.Our cashmere baby bodysuits are easy to put on your baby - and to take off as well. Much less fiddling around with arms and things. Making your baby happier, and your life easier

 

It will last:

Wool fibers can be bent and twisted over 30,000 times without breaking, while cotton can only bend 3,000 times, Cashmere will endure the wear and tear that comes with active kids.

Additionally, cashmere has been proven to get softer as it gets older, meaning it is only going to improve in comfort and will look better with time.

If you plan on having more children, our unisex cashmere baby bodysuits can easily be passed down from one sibling to another or given to a friend or family member who is expecting a baby. Cashmere is timeless and will never go out of style. For both of my children I got most of their cloths from friends and families and I was very grateful to find some gems!

 

Who doesn’t like looking chic?

Our cashmere baby bodysuits and cashmere kids’ sweaters can we worn as everyday garment or dressed up for any special occasion taking your little ones from playground to playdate in style If the elegant appearance of our cashmere baby bodysuits and kids’ cashmere sweaters is not

enough to convince you, keep reading…

 

The ideal gift

A durable, thoughtful keepsake present, cashmere really is the perfect newborn baby gift for any expectant mother, or any family who have recently welcomed a baby into their home. Unlike polyester, cashmere is breathable and super soft, which makes it suitable for newborn babies with even those with the most sensitive of skin.

 

Low maintenance

While some people assume cashmere is difficult to maintain, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Cashmere is wrinkle resistant therefore, doesn’t require ironing before or after each use. We recommend that you avoid washing your cashmere product too often. Cashmere is self-cleaning, and those poppy diaper smell disappear quickly. This is thanks to Cashmere natural antibacterial properties .

  For messy children, no worries, cashmere is stain resistant!

Hand wash your little ones' cashmere outfit in cold water using mild soap or baby shampoo or if you are a busy mommy just like me, you can put it in a mesh washing bag and run the cycle on delicate (some washing machine come with a cashmere cycle) air dry laying flat and voila!

 

It is safer!

Cashmere has natural fire-resistant properties and when it is exposed to fire, while it will smolder, it will not melt onto the skin and it can self–extinguish once the source of the flame has gone out.

The benefits of cashmere for your babies and kids are many and stretch well beyond its divine softness and indulgently silky feel. I can keep going on, but I believe I have laid down a lot of arguments to convince you to give it a try for your little ones, I am a true convert and my babies have grown up wearing cashmere, I live what I preach and yes I did make a business out of something I believe in and I want all mommies to know how amazing this material is for babies and kids.
