3 Reasons why to switch to Bamboo
As mums we’re always hearing about hacks and tips to help our little ones stay cool during the summer months; Ice in front of the fan, keeping the blinds down all day, putting their sheets in the freezer half an hour before bed… but if we’re honest how effective are these really? Our secret? Bamboo!
The higher temperatures may be lovely during the day; paddling pools, ice lollies and water fights, but can wreak havoc on sleep, need I say more! You may have heard about the benefits of bamboo clothing and how it can offer you relief during the warmer months. But do you know how?
Here’s 3 reasons why we love working with bamboo to create our kid's sleepwear:
1. Thermoregulating and moisture-wicking
Bamboo has benefits all year round. It can help you stay cool during the summer nights and warm in the cold winters. Bamboo is moisture wicking keeping your little ones comfortable, helping them to regulate their temperature and allowing their skin to breathe. Bamboo also has antibacterial properties and is hypoallergenic. This makes it especially perfect for eczema sufferers and kids with sensitive skin.
A big pull factor for us and one of the most attractive benefits of bamboo is its softness. It was so important for us as a brand to have a quality product that was kind to the skin. Also, did you know, the bamboo fibre gets softer and softer as it is washed, win win!
Finally, and a really important benefit for us; there are so many reasons bamboo fabrics are some of the most sustainable materials in the fashion industry. Firstly, it’s quick growth and the fact it requires little water to thrive. There’s also no need for pesticides or fertilisers to grow bamboo and it can actually improve soil quality and help prevent erosion.
So, what to dress your kids in this summer? Here’s some tips from us:
