We now stock a beautiful range of wool sock and tights for babies and Children up to 6 years. Hirsch Natur is an ethical company based in Germany and their products are just gorgeous, photos can't really do them justice, they have to be touched to really get a feel for how soft and beautifully made they are.
Wool is great for the feet, it breaths, regulates temperature, wicks away moisture so even wet feet feel dry and warm. In the Winter months, feet can easily get wet with all that puddle jumping. Even inside wellies feet feel cold and damp in cotton socks, but wool with its amazing properties does wonders to keep your child feeling dry and happy.
They are also so hardwearing. My son has had a pair of the Award Winning chunky non-slip grippy socks for about 3 years. Yes they are too small now, even though he still sometimes wears them - they are just great inside wellies and around the house. My little one will inherit them soon and that is what I love so much about wool: it is long wearing and makes for great hand-me-downs.
Now footless wool and cotton tights are a must in the winter. How many girls love to wear their summer dresses throughout the winter? I know a few. At least with these you can know your little one can still do this and stay warm and cosy. Having a pair of these up your sleeve can really help those winter fashion vs. warmth battles!

New deliveries full of wonderful woollies from Germany are always met with excitement in our house. My 4 year old son is self-appointed chief-box-opener, when all the boxes are opened he then sets about working out how we can best use the box. (click on the title to read more)
I've had a few customers asking about using the Disana wool nappy covers for their older children who are bed wetters.
After your child has potty trained in the day, they may still be wet at night for some time after. For my son, who is now four, we have had a sixmonth period of dryness when he was about two and a half and then we moved to Australia when he was nearly three and then everything went out of the window. It's common to hear how a major disruption in a child's life can send potty training back to its humble beginnings, which is exactly what has happened to us.
We started potty training quite early (18months) and I think in hindsight that my son wasn't really ready. Although things went well for six months it all went out the window at 2 years old and in a bitterly cold English winter so we went back to nappies until he was two and a half (and it was warmer). Then we tried again with success both day and night up until we moved country.
Now my 4 year old wears the Disana tie-on nappy at night with a pull up wool cover just like my six month old. It is quite amazing how well the tie-on nappies fit from birth to four years old. For him I will use the tie-on nappy with an extra thick booster pad made up of a brushed cotton liner and a folded muslin square.
The the pull up cover goes over the top to keep any wee contained and it works brilliantly. He is in the size 12-24 months would you believe although it is quite tight. But I'll be getting the next sizes up 2-3 years and 4-5 years in for others wishing to try this method for their older children. In the morning if the nappy is wet it goes straight in the washing machine and the cover just gets aired out in the sun and smells as good as new again.
