CASHMERE FOR BABIES
Our customers often ask us if Cashmere is suitable for babies. In fact, this incredibly fine fibre is the ideal material to place next to your little one's delicate skin due to its super soft handle and unrivalled warmth. Since our finely crafted Cashmere products are also made to last, our Cashmere baby hats, booties and cardigans make the perfect gifts for your newborn.
CAN BABIES WEAR CASHMERE?
Cashmere has inherent insulating properties, so it will keep your baby warm without the risk of them overheating. In addition, the cloud-like softness of our Cashmere products won't irritate the skin, so you can dress your baby in Cashmere with confidence.
Caring for a newborn's Cashmere products is simpler than you might think, too. The soft fibres have natural antibacterial properties so generally need to be washed less often than those made with synthetic materials. When cashmere baby clothes do require cleaning, you can gently hand wash each piece using cashmere shampoo, then reshape the garment and allow it to dry naturally.
IS CASHMERE GOOD FOR BABIES?
A baby's tender skin can be sensitive to harsh chemicals, fragrances and dyes. Our Cashmere Baby products are made using meticulously selected fibres dyed in shades as close as possible to their natural colour to avoid unnecessary bleaching. This process reduces the impurities that come into contact with your newborn’s skin.
Cashmere is a sustainable choice, too. As a natural, biodegradable and renewable fibre and, when properly cared for, Cashmere can last for many years. Since babies grow so fast, it’s also reassuring to know that you can pass baby's first Cashmere cardigan on to a friend’s little one or even down through the generations. Cashmere is an excellent choice for babies and, compared with many synthetic fibres that take a long time to break down, it’s better for the environment too.
WHAT CASHMERE PRODUCTS SHOULD I CHOOSE FOR MY BABY?
