Choosing Ethical Children's Clothes for Winter

Here in the beautiful Bellinger Valley, winter is nearly entirely upon us. We have the fire on at night but the days can still be sunny and in the high teens. There’s a lovely fresh, crispness to the morning air. In fact, this weather is perfect for walks and trips out with your little ones. So, what to wear? Here at Elves, we have a vast range of stylish ethical children’s clothes for you to choose. Read on for a quick guide to keeping your kids happy and warm during the winter months. 

Organic cotton clothes for winter – a layering strategy 

The best way to keep your young ones warm in the winter is by using organic cotton layers. Using layers means you’re ready for any situation. A rule of thumb is that for maximum comfort, babies should wear one more layer than an adult would. Also, using layers means versatility. If things start getting more active, it’s easy to shed a layer or two to avoid them becoming too warm. For a top layer, consider our organic cotton knit wrap jacket by Sense Organics. These jackets are a perfect combination of cosy and style. Also, For a long-sleeve organic cotton/wool onesie, have a look at our loud+proud baby onesie in grey. They are that’s ideal for layering, will go with anything, and keep your baby warm. It’s the perfect choice for ethical children’s clothes for winter.

Accessories complete the picture

It’s incredible what a difference the simple addition of an organic baby hat can make to baby’s comfort. They’re ideal for a quick car journey or at least initially before the heating has kicked in. Plus, if it’s windy, the addition of ear flaps are very welcome. Consider organic woollen gloves on the cold days too. These are great for babies because they won’t know to keep their hands under the blankets.

Fair Trade Ethical Children’s Clothes  

We always stock the perfect staples from Loud+Proud. Ideal for layering, these are high-quality organic cotton tees that come with fun and funky patterns. Also, check out their lovely natural cotton jackets and jumpers. Whack on some wellies and the kids are ready to kick up a storm of winter leaves!

Sleepwear that’s kind to the Planet

Both your little ones and you can sleep easy by buying Australian Eco-fashion label G.Nancy. They use ethically-sourced cotton that’s beautiful to wear and is fair to the workers and the environment. 

Have the sweetest dreams with g.nancy’s soft and snugly PJs, featuring a hand-drawn ‘home’ print by local artist Oliver Robert Holmes.
