How it all started...
Read more about how the Truly Wooly Kids adventure started :)
When my daughter Aya-Sofia turned 4 she started going to school. From that moment on she started regularly complaining about being warm and then cold. My girl has a tendency to get really warm after which she wants to take all of her clothes off. I'm sure you know children that play outside and don't want to wear any coat even in the harsh winter. Well I discovered this: by making my daughter wear a merino wool baselayer I dramatically reduced her discomfort. I noticed that all the cotton layers I made her wear didn't help at all. When a kid is sweaty their cotton shirt absorbs all the transpiration and stays wet for far too long which is really uncomfortable for the kids that then have to use precious energy to neutralise the "cooling" effect of the wet cotton layers. That's the moment they can start complaining about feeling cold. Some kids won't complain but you'll probably see their immune system getting a hard time after a while. Watching Aya-Sofia struggle with regulating her body temperature made me realise the importance of the right choice of materials.
And that's the moment when the idea of Truly Wooly Kids was born. With a passion for the magical properties of wool!
