The demand for organic wool is increasing steadily, as the tremendous benefits associated with organic wool are starting to become more widely known. It is especially suitable for babies and children’s clothing for a variety of reasons.
What Qualifies as Organic Wool?
For any clothing that is made from wool to be considered organic, it must adhere to the GOTS standard. GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standards, which is the world leader for regulating textiles produced with organic fibres.
Producing certified organic wool clothing is an intensive process, with many social and ecological criteria that must be adhered to.
Every stage and level of production must meet the stringent requirements laid out by GOTS.
Considering how much more challenging and burdensome it is to produce organic wool clothing, there must be a very good reason for doing it.
The simple explanation is that is just much better for your children.
We specialize in organic wool and cotton clothing for children and babies.
With a heavy focus on quality and comfort, our clothing is bound to please parents and children alike. This clothing is not only highly beneficial for the wearer, but also for the environment.
The majority of our clothing meets the GOTS requirements every step of the way, from the livestock that produces it, all the way to the end user. And what’s not 100% GOTS yet is on its way to be.
Synthetic Vs. Organic
Organic material is much safer, more comfortable, and more practical for your children for several reasons.
A few of these reasons are:
- No harmful chemicals
- Natural temperature regulation
- Comfort and contentment
A lot of synthetic materials are produced with noxious chemicals which you most likely do not want around your child.
Our merino wool that is from sheep that have been fed organically their whole lives, in an ideal free-roaming environment. These animals have not been subjected to any synthetic hormones or pesticides.
During production, most wool is treated with chlorine in order to make it machine washable. Nui Organics merino wool is never treated with chlorine making it safer for the user and the environment.
Organic merino wool is a natural insulator, while at the same time offering a high level of breathability.
This is extremely helpful for babies that are not yet aware of how to regulate a comfortable body temperature. Merino wool will hold your baby’s heat to keep warm, but will also allow excess heat to escape to prevent over-heating.
This is why organic merino wool is perfect for every season, all year round.
Comfort and Contentment
When thinking about the characteristics of traditional wool, it is probably not a material that you would associate with baby clothing. Remembering that scratchy and heavy wool sweater your grandmother gave you for Christmas, you may not want to inflict that same discomfort on your own child.
However, organic merino wool does not have those uncomfortable characteristics of the classic wool sweater. Soft and not itchy!
