ATTENTION – THIS COLOR IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE!
We purchase the yard ware from a small Hanoverian company. There the colours and patterns change frequently – so please contact us by mail. We will send you a selection of the currently available colours and the sleeping bag will then be manufactured according to your wishes.
The fabric of this sleeping bag consists of 70% merino wool and 30% silk and combines the wonderful properties of these two materials. It is a jersey fabric, so the sleeping bag is very stretchy and offers a lot of freedom of movement. It has a side zipper and buttons made of mother of pearl and was sewn in a Berlin studio with much love and care.
Wool is self-cleaning and antibacterial, as the creatine in the wool naturally breaks down foul-smelling bacteria that develop during sweating. Wool is also hygroscopic and can therefore absorb body moisture. Wool has the special effect that the moisture can be stored both in the fibres and between the fibres. It can thus absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp and continues to produce heat. In comparison, cotton can only absorb about 10% of its own weight in moisture. Merino virgin wool is very finely crimped, does not scratch and feels soft and fluffy. It is also well tolerated by allergy sufferers and people with neurodermatitis.
Silk is a valuable natural fibre and is characterised by high strength and temperature-regulating properties. The fabric is therefore ideal for cooling the small body when it is hot, but also for protecting it from the cold. Like wool, silk can absorb approx. 30% of its own weight in moisture and therefore also has a moisture regulating effect. The silk absorbs body perspiration and still feels dry to the touch, allowing children’s delicate skin to breathe well. The chemical structure of silk is very similar to that of the skin. It is therefore particularly skin-friendly and also suitable for allergy sufferers. It is said to have skin-soothing properties and is recommended for skin diseases.
The wool/silk mixture thus combines the positive properties of both basic materials and leads to a true luxury substance.
The material was produced in a socially and environmentally compatible manner. It has been manufactured according to the strict GOTS guidelines and is also mulesing-free. This means that the skin around the tail of wool sheep is not removed without anaesthesia in order to prevent pest infestation. Animal welfare organisations have sharply criticised this procedure. A substance produced according to the GOTS guidelines refers to a high standard and stands for strict ecological criteria along the entire production chain. Quality assurance is carried out by independent certifications.
Notes on care
Due to the self-cleaning and antibacterial properties of wool, it is optimal if the sleeping bag is simply ventilated in damp weather (e.g. in the bathroom when taking a shower) and washed only when it is heavily soiled. The water vapour that the fabric encounters then automatically removes smaller dirt particles and bad odours.
Please make sure that you use a detergent for wool. The detergent should contain moisturising ingredients so that the wool fibres remain puffy. A detergent with an integrated fabric softener should not be used, as this is the only way wool textiles retain their shape and do not expand. We recommend the wool detergent tenemoll.
The washing temperature of wool should be cold or hand-warm.
Soak the sleeping bag for 10 minutes, press it through briefly, do not rub it. Do not spin or wring in the washing machine afterwards, as wet silk fibres are very sensitive.
Wash in the wool cycle of the washing machine without spinning.
You can place the wet sleeping bag on a towel, roll it up and squeeze it out. Then roll out, pull into shape and dry lying down. Do not place on the heater or in direct sunlight.
Wash with similar colours. Do not dry in a tumble dryer. Do not bleach.
The sleeping bags are available in four sizes: 55cm, 75cm, 95cm and 115cm. The information is in centimetres (no ready-made size) and refers to the complete length of the sleeping bag. If you would like to know which size is suitable for your child, then simply measure out your own sleeping bag or take the length from the shoulders to the feet of your child and add approx. 10cm of room to move in the length.
