Baby bonnet with with Reconnecting Nature™ microbe extract
Three different sizes. A knitted Reconnecting Nature label at the back of the skull. Babies’ immune system needs a wide range of exposure. We recommend starting usage from two months onwards.
The microbe extract is added to the silk wool knit during the manufacturing process. The extract might be spread unevenly which might also show in the knit as a slightly uneven coloring. In order to enlongate the good effects of the extract wear the items as much as possible, air to clean and wash when needed (please use Sonett’s Silk and wool washing liquid and gently wash by hand).
Certified organic silk wool includes 30% silk and 70% wool and combines the best of both materials: silk’s smoothens and wool’s warmth. The thin material is breathable and elastic and offers additional warmth when worn under or over other clothes. The undyed and unprocessed wool and silk are also safe for babies. Hand-made in Artjärvi Finland. No washing required before use. 100 % mulesing-free organic silk wool, 160g/m2.
Washing and care
No washing required before first use. Airing keeps silkwool fresh longer and delays the need for washing. Long-term storage in the original sealable plastic bag (wash before storage). We recommend hand washing for first three times. After that, wash preferably by hand or by using the 30 Celsius degree using a biodegradable wool washing detergent. Smooth into shape when wet. No not let dry in direct sunlight or near a heating device.
Silk (30%) is grown in China and organic merino wool (70%) is grown in Argentina and Uruguay. Silkwool combines wool’s warmth and silk’s smoothness for year-around use. Both materials keep you cool when warm and warm up in the cold weather and can absorb moisture without feeling wet. Pure natural fibers are flexible and breath even in warm weather. Due to its thin structure the material is well-suited for active everyday life but won’t tolerate heavy rubbing and sweating without felting. At the end of their lifecycle 100% wool and 100% silk return back to nature.
Silk manufacturing requires a lot of manual crafting. The products are made and packed by Ruskovilla’s own professionals in Artjärvi Finland. The products are not finished with repellents harmful to humans or nature. The surplus silk swathes are a part of our ecological production: together with wool they are spun into knitting yarn. All our products are manufactured using 100% renewable energy, and we utilize renewable geothermal heat in keeping our manufacturing, storage and production facilities warm.
