100% Natural

Cashmere comes from the undercoat of a cashmere goat, so it is 100% natural! Despite the recent rise in synthetic materials, nothing compares to the feel of natural fabrics, especially when it comes to your baby. Why put a material that has been engineered in a lab or crafted with unwanted chemicals on your baby’s delicate skin? Using 100% natural fibers is always a safer way to go to lower the risk of your baby developing an allergy to its clothing. 

Promotes Sleep and Soothes

Cashmere is one of the softest materials available for babies. Its soft texture soothes and comforts the restless ones. Due to its skin-friendly and thermo-regulation properties, babies have been proven to sleep better and longer while wearing cashmere.

Hypoallergenic and Gentle

Cashmere has hypoallergenic properties, which means a low-risk of developing skin allergies. If your baby suffers from skin allergies or eczema, you may want to choose our cashmere baby bodysuits. Our garments will not irritate your baby’s skin nor will they trigger an allergic reaction. 

The fibers are soft and feel great against the skin. The fibers are much finer than wool and are spun tightly to produce a smooth, soft texture that will not irritate your little one’s sensitive skin.

Low Maintenance

Cashmere has natural antibacterial properties, which means it is self-cleaning and doesn’t need to be washed often. So, those poopy diaper smells you hate will disappear quickly and on their own. Cashmere is also stain-resistant and wrinkle-resistant. You will never have to worry about your kids making a mess of their clothes or having to iron the garments.

Regulates Body-Temperature

Cashmere has the ability to keep your baby’s body warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This is due to the fiber’s versatility and high moisture content, which allows the fibers to easily adapt to the body’s temperature. 

This means that Unlike synthetic fibers, which can leave you hot and sweaty, cashmere allows your skin 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.

Maximum Warmth

Cashmere is extremely light and yet is still 3 times warmer than regular sheeps wool, which makes cashmere the ideal winter essential for babies and kids. It feels incredibly snug and lush against your skin. 

Up to around 18 months old, babies find it hard to regulate their own temperature.  Little ones, especially if they are sick or were born prematurely, can lose body heat quickly if they are not kept warm enough, making cashmere the best material for their wellbeing.

Endless Comfort

Cashmere is plush, silky and luxuriously soft, which comes from the high loft fiber (air within the fiber). Its lightweight feel means that your child won’t feel bulky in their clothes, giving them maximum comfort.

The springiness of the cashmere fibers gives it good elasticity, which means it will stretch easily, but still go back to its original shape - perfect for those active babies that need ease of movement.

Fire-Resistant Properties

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.

Super Durable and Long-Lasting

Cashmere 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’s cozy feel will only improve with time. Our durable garments can easily be passed down from one sibling to another or given to a friend or family member who is expecting a baby. 

Dress Up or Down 

Our cashmere baby bodysuits and kids’ sweaters can be worn as an everyday garment or dressed up for any special occasion - taking your little ones from the playground to a playdate in style.
