The importance of a bonnet: A newborn babies head is relatively large compared with the rest of its body which means that the heat loss through the head is significant. A bonnet helps to keep baby's temperature stable. It also protects the baby from the surrounding noise of the environment. The bonnet also massages the baby's head in a soothing way similar to the effect of the womb during pregnancy. Ruskovilla Finland
Washing: handwash in tepid water with a wool shampoo, dry flat in shade. Silk doesn't like to dry in the sun as it causes the fibres to go brittle over time.
Note on using machine wash: Wool washing programmes of washing machines vary massively, therefore we can not grant warranty for any damages. With regards to using your wool washing machine cycle always use cold. If you choose to wash at 30 degrees the machine will still rinse with cold water and this shock to the fibres can cause the wool to shrink.
