Oh Nature Baby, how do I love thee. Celia obviously covered a lot of it. Organic Wool? (Which is what they sent us to check out.) This material is the sh*t. It is not scratchy at all, super soft. And (like you all suggested) so great for layering. Warm, but breathable, and such a light thin layer!
I really love that the company is pretty dedicated to their natural products. In reading their website I don't think this is a case of green-washing. From their site;
"Our organic wool is completely free of any chemical residues. It has been grown and processed free of chemicals typically used in the wool process e.g. drenches, scours, bleaches and shrinkage agents."
Ok, so we know it is practical, but it is also so stylish. As celia pointed out, we are obsessed with stripes, and they have them aplenty. But above all I am so impressed with their timeless and classic styling. Nothing gaudy or fussy, no cutesy imagery. They have a small tag on the bottom of the front of the shirts (which sometimes drives me CRAZY, I hate logos) but this one is subtle and cute and well designed enough that it does not bother me one bit.) Everything is so pleasantly gender neutral without being overly adult. I am dying to get Henry one of these tops in rose. After all, his papa wore pink at our wedding.
So yeah, I am in love with Nature Baby. I want to travel to New Zealand and visit their flagship store and paw all the goodies in person. Heck I want to partner up with them and OPEN a satellite store here in San Diego. Am I right?
Thanks Nature Baby!
