Scandinavia is known for keeping the long traditions with wool used in clothing. Wool is in fact more popular than ever, due to new technology, sourcing the softest and most comfortable wool fibres. Scandinavian children’s brands with lots of soft knitwear and wool includes FUB, Bock Cph, Esencia, As We Grow, Little Mountains, Jumina and Mole Little Norway. Pretty sweaters and cardigans and dresses in fine knit for children are found in kidswear brands such as Memini, Dundelina, Norlie and Poppy Rose. Luxurious knitwear is also found in high end children’s brand Pale Cloud. There’s also the super trendy soft toy and home accessory brand LuckyBoySunday that creates everything in the softest alpaca wool.
Children’s shops that specialise in wool products include MamaOwl, Mayamin, Mormor and Ellas Wool
