When we shop for apparel, one of the first things we look for is the texture of the fabric. How soft is it? Is it comfortable? The type of fabric often determines how well a product will be loved and how often it will be worn. When it comes to kids and baby clothing, we want it to be extra soft and safe for their sensitive skins. That is why we are very careful about the fabric we choose for all our products. When we decided to add slouchy beanies to the Wolf Pup Threads collection, we wanted it to be the softest, most eco-friendly, versatile beanies out there, so we meticulously looked over several fabrics before we made our final choice.
All Wolf Pup Threads slouchy beanies are handmade from a combination of bamboo and organic cotton fabric. This soft, light-weight fabric makes these beanies one of our favourite items. In our previous blog post we discussed the benefits of organic cotton, but what about bamboo? What’s so special about it?
Bamboo fabric is a 100% biodegradable textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and thrives naturally without the use of any pesticides or fertilizers, making the fabric non-irritating to even the most sensitive skin. Clothing made from bamboo fabric is extra soft, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, antifungal, and has natural protection against UV rays. Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin, and has natural temperature control properties, keeping you drier and more comfortable in all types of weather.
That’s a lot of awesome in one fabric!
