woolies...

we love wool long johns at our house...



these are actually a blend of wool and silk. nothing is more comforting or feels better, does it? maya sleeps in her woolies every night...



and lives in them all day long, too, if we're not going out (as evidenced by most of the pictures of her here in my blog). and she wears them as a first layer under her clothes if we do go out. ahh, wool. how we love it at our house!

yours in wooly warmth,

shelley

Where do you buy these? Machine wash, right?

I have been looking for woolies for my 8 year old son. Natural Pod sells them here in Vancouver Canada, but they do not have his size. Can you help me?
Thanks

lowbeamstudios and eva - you can purchase these type of wool long johns at both novanatural.com and also palumba.com. as for washing, i always wash them by hand to prevent them from shrinking. it's super easy though - i just wash them in the sink, roll them in a towel to get the excess water out...then hang them to dry (which doesn't take long). :) - shelley

She looks quite warm and peaceful. I have a Maia too, but mine is 11 now. :) Just found your blog and thought I'd say hello. Do come by and pay me a visit sometime! :)

Hi Shelley!

I was signed in under my husbands username and left a comment. I didn't realize this until it was posted. Boy was he angry! oops! Anyway, I just wanted to say the pj's are cute. I try to wear pj's every chance I get. Have a great night.

PS. My first comment was way better, but I can't remember what I wrote. :)

Hi Shelley,
my husband's daughter drew my attention to your beautiful blog. I love the hats (especially the green one!), can't wait to see the other things you make. I am a waldorf mother of four (above mentioned daughter doesn't live with us), living with my American husband in Budapest, Hungary.
I like the links too, thogh the second from the bottom doesn't work for me.
How old is Maya?

I have seen the wool/silk combo and I think it is great for the little ones. I have always been into knitting pants for B, but now he says they are "too wooly". Making sweater pants out of old cashmere sweaters is nice too!

I love pics of sleeping babes.
I just realised that we will be doing 2 winters back to back this year,
'Wollies' for all I say!
'Wollies' for all! Xxx
