This grey winter sleeping bag consists of 100% merino wool. The sleeping bag is meant for very cool nights, because it is wonderfully thick and warming. 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.
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.
The yarn colour and the colour of the zipper can vary.
Notes on the care of wool
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.
The washing temperature of wool should be cold or hand-warm.
Soak the sleeping bag for 10 minutes, press it through briefly without rubbing it.
Wash in the wool washing cycle of the washing machine and spin only at the lowest speed, as wet wool fibres are very sensitive.
You can spin the wet sleeping bag in the spin program of the washing machine at the lowest speed, or place the sleeping bag on a towel, roll it up and squeeze it out. Then unwind and dry lying down. Do not place on the heater or in direct sunlight. Shake occasionally.
Wash with similar colours. Do not dry in a tumble dryer. Do not bleach.
The sleeping bags are available in the sizes 55cm, 75cm, 95cm and 115cm. The information 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 about 10cm of room to move.
