Mole Little Norway, fine cotton knits for Spring Summer 2013

by Scandinavian mum

With a colour palette based on sun bleached paint, Mole Little Norway takes us straight back to those lazy days at the summer house. The sort of day where you as a child used to have no plans when running out after breakfast, other than exploring and playing with your friends. The days with no clouds, only fun times riding the bike and swimming in the lake, before cooling of on the porch with mums homemade ice cold squash, served from a large jug.
The styles are timeless and comfortable, the knit is in delicate cotton, soft next to skin. The dresses and beautiful jumpers ensures comfort as well as your child will be well dressed for all occasions. The playful striped one-piece suit are made for play and activity. Put a sunhat on top and they are ready to go fishing for crabs!

Warming Wool for Children during a frosty Winter

by Scandinavian mum

Children and wool was part of my inspiration to start up this blog. In Scandinavia the children are dressed in wool throughout the colder months to keep dry and warm. And even though the UK is wet, windy and cold during Autumn and Winter, with temperatures dropping to sub zero, whilst the arctic winds sweeps trough the country, the children would be dressed in cotton and artificial fleece to keep warm.
Knowing the benefits of a natural material like wool and also having experienced the super soft qualities of Merino and Alpaca wool in addition to beautiful silk wool blends and wool fleece we have available nowadays, it would a shame not to share it.

In Scandinavia wool is a large part of every child’s winter wardrobe. And it’s not only the hat and scarf that is in the warming material. Most importantly is what’s next to skin; underwear, tee and tights. There’s also a wonderful selection of knitted jumpers, beautiful dresses and funky knitted trousers, There’s socks and baby booties, hooded coats and ponchos, baby sleeping bags, blankets and toys -all in wool.

In the UK it seems hard to find wool clothes for children. In Scandinavia most childrenswear shop would have a dedicated wool section. Changing the way parents dress their children, or opening up to new materials (when all the parents can remember is acrylic jumpers and itchy wool) is not happening over night. But importnat evnets like the Wool Week, supported by HRH the Prince of Wales, is trending. And there’s lovely blog inspiration via sites Wool Rocks, to get you started on your own wool project. However, with a slightly limited crafty talent, we love sites like MorMor that provides home knits -if you don’t master the knitting pins yourself. And as wool is trending, more and more International shops are not only including but specialsing in wool; Mayamin London, Ella’s Wool New York, The Island Wool Company, Faroe Island Next time you’re shopping for kids clothes, check the tag -look out for wool!
