Know your options when buying kids’ clothes — it’s good to know in advance the types of fabrics used to make our products. Here are the main types of fabrics from which clothes are made.
Merino wool is obtained from Arles merino sheep. Merino wool clothing and linen are of high quality and long-lasting. Thanks to their excellent qualities, they are highly regarded by parents and athletes alike thanks to merino wool thermoregulation properties. A warm layer is indispensable in our climate, regulating body temperature while keeping moisture out. Merino wool garments are also excellent for casual wear.
Cotton is the most commonly used and preferred material because it is durable, breathable and soft. Cotton is divided into several subcategories:
Egyptian cotton – the most luxurious variety used for making high-quality clothing. Egyptian cotton grows in the warm, dry climate of North Africa, and is particularly long-fiber, which gives it the much-desired softness and luster that characterizes Egyptian cotton.
Pima cotton – also known for its softness and natural luster. Pima cotton has medium to ultra-long fibers that are ideal for making clothes. Grows mainly in Southwest America.
Uphill cotton – medium length fiber, made in the United States.
Polyester – natural man-made fibers made from polymers. We ourselves don’t use polyester in our garments, however, it is one of the most popular materials in the world. Usually, polyester clothing is relatively coarse and also cheaper in the price range. However, polyester is more commonly used as an ingredient in cotton blends. Mixing materials are also often used, mainly for greater durability.
