When the Heat is On, Love your Natural Linen

April 13, 2019

When the Heat is On, Love your Natural Linen

I love to dress and sleep in linen fabric. I love to wrap my family in linen goodies, whenever I can. And now I finally managed to integrate my love for natural linen into our Elves in the Wardrobe range! Introducing the most lovely New Zealand based baby and small children clothes label Hudson & Hare, and German-based Puenktchen Komma Strich.

Linen clothing isn’t just great in Summer

With our hot Australian summer in full swing, you can’t go past the magic of natural linen baby and kid’s clothes. It’s so comfortable and so practical. In addition, it’s super hard wearing. In fact, linen is known as the strongest natural fibre out there. This means it’s a great alternative to organic cotton clothing all year round.

Let’s have a look at some of the Benefits of Natural Linen Clothes

1. It’s durable and very hardwearing

Besides being a super strong fibre, tests have shown it actually gets softer and stronger after being washed.

2. Linen is more environmentally friendly than cotton

Linen is derived from the storks of the flax plant. It’s entirely natural and needs much less water to grow than cotton. Also, there’s a demand for flax oil and seeds therefore almost all of the plant can be used.

3. It’s highly Absorbent and Breathable

In the heat, linen quickly wicks away moisture from baby’s skin and vents it back to the air.

4. A little bit of luxury

Linen is considered a luxury cloth because it’s a little more expensive than cotton. But given its awesome durability and comfort, we think it’s worth it.

5. Linen is a natural insect repellent

That’s right! Moths and similar insects aren’t attracted to linen so say goodbye to holes in your clothes.

6. Naturally Hypoallergenic

With synthetic fibres and chemically treated materials on the rise, many babies are unable to wear these fabrics. Not so with linen. Its breathable nature creates a perfect ecosystem for baby’s skin.

 7. Easy to look after

Is this the biggest bonus for most busy Mums? Just chuck ‘em in the machine on a cold wash, hang to dry and they’ll ready to wear. No ironing required!

8. Ultimate Comfort

Little Elves love linen. And why wouldn’t they? Comfy, breathable, heat-regulating, light-weight, they look great and feel lovely against the skin.

If you have already experienced the magic for natural linen clothes, I would love to hear from you to share your experiences and if you are new to the world of linen clothing, I hope I got you a little inspired.

In Conversation With: Verena Barthel, Owner of Elves In The Wardrobe

October 31, 2020

Tell us a bit about yourself, and how the EITW story began? I was always drawn to organic shops and products, even without having any background knowledge. I just loved it, and it somehow felt good using, eating and wearing organic products. Once my children were born, I started to take the time to investigate...
