Everyone with experience in babywearing knows that the feet of a child in a sling/carrier get cold easily, even when using a babywearing jacket/cover or regular winter shoes. The toes need wiggle space and plenty of trapped air around. The ankles are also sensitive to chill and when being worn or sitting in the car/bike seat/stroller it's a fact that pants ride up.
Our solution for protection of babies' feet is the Adjustable Winter Booties. They cover both baby and toddler ankles, they have two elasticized parts with button-hole elastic for personalized fit and comfort. The shaft can be worn raised or folded down. They are cut generously for free movement of the foot inside and for easy dressing also with thick winter clothing like snowsuits.
Wonderfully soft and stretchy merino wool rib that doesn't itch or tickle. Perfect for every season, unique in the way it can accommodate fluctuating temperatures and environmental changes, keeping body temperature more consistent. And as wool is naturally anti-bacterial it doesn't need to be washed as often as other garments, just airing will do - very practical!
- Outer polar fleece 100% polyester, lining rib knit 100% merino wool
- For first wash, Wee recommend using Unicorn Beyond Soft conditioner to bring it to it's full softness. It's recommended to hand wash these, although MaMidea says they are machine washable at MAX 86 degrees F on wool cycle. REMEMBER: These are NOT treated to be machine washable. They are very sturdy though and have held up amazingly well when hand washed. We recommend airing outside in fresh air for wool garments. Wool items do not need to be washed after every use. Wash your Natural Woollies with wool/natural detergent. No bleach, no tumble dry.
