how to care for natural fibres?

Always check the care labels of individual garments. Use environmentally friendly cleaning agents. Please note that none of our garments have been treated with fire retardant agents. Unlike polyesters, natural fibers such as wool and cotton are naturally fire resistant. However for obvious reasons, garments should be kept away from fire.

how to care for organic merino wool essentials?

Please take extra care when washing woolen garments. Always check the washing instructions as some garments like our wool handknits require hand washing, check our how to care for handknits instructions.

Don't Bleach Me
Always use an approved liquid wool detergent.
Do not soak or wash your wool garments using laundry powders.
Did you know most laundry powders contain whiteners which act like bleach, even ‘eco-whiteners’ may still bleach your garment creating bleach spots and holes. If the garment is stained use our Stain Soap and gently rub into the affected area before washing. Never soak your merino garments, as this destroys the wool fibres.

Pilling
As our wool has not been treated with a synthetic coating, it may pill.
If pilling occurs, do not despair, this is a natural process where friction causes the short fibers to migrate to the surface. Once removed these will disappear.

how to care for your mattress?

Our natural materials such as 100% certified organic wool filling, pure plant based latex and organic cotton and linen will all allow air and moisture to move through the mattress. To ensure it breathes please follow these instructions:

Turn your moses and bassinet mattresses over, rotate from end to end weekly. This maintains loft and ensures moisture is not trapped.

Do not use directly on the floor.

Air all mattresses regularly, in the sun if possible, or in winter in a warm dry room. Please air frequently during winter months when rooms are damper and less ventilated.

The mattress may be spot cleaned with warm water and put in the sunshine to dry. Please ensure the mattress is thoroughly dry before use.

Our mattresses are not treated with chemicals for shrinkage so should not be machine washed, dry cleaned or spun dry.

Chemical free

We believe in a gentle and natural approach to laundry, free from harmful chemicals and toxins. We have carefully chosen our selection of laundry products from like minded companies. By being chemical free we are also helping to create a cleaner greener world for our babies to enjoy as they grow.

Feel the breeze

Hanging your washing on the line is the gentle way to dry your clothes and bedding, making them last longer in better condition. Drying outside makes them smell fresher and be cleaner too, the sun's ultraviolet rays are an antiseptic which kills bacteria. Not to mention being better for the environment, if all households with a tumble dryer hung one load of washing outside each week, we would save over a million tonnes of CO2 in a year.
