The base layer is the layer that is worn next to the skin.
Purpose: This layer works with the body’s temperature to create a microclimate against the skin and help manage moisture and heat through vapor transfer.
Fact: Our organic merino absorbs 35% of its own weight in water, which means that it is the ideal base layer.
Benefit: Keeps your little ones dry and warm without feeling clammy. It's also super soft, which means it won't itch or scratch their sensitive skins and keep them super comfortable all day long!
2. Layer 2 - Insulation
The middle, or second layer, is known as the thermal layer.
Purpose: The purpose of this layer is to retain the body’s natural heat, while still being breathable.
3. Layer 3 - Protection
The final layer is added for protection against the elements.
Purpose: It is also important that this layer is breathable, so it lets the moisture escape and doesn’t cool the body by letting the moisture condensate.
Fact: For babies and toddlers, adding merino accessories such as a beanie and booties will offer that additional layer of protection, while it may also mean adding a rain jacket or coat, depending on the weather.
Benefit: Lightweight, easy to style layering essentials will go a long way in creating a practical wardrobe for your children that will last throughout all the seasons and the in-between weather that comes with Spring and Autumn.
