Organic Cotton Vegetable/Mimosa tanned Sheepskin Universal Pushchair Footmuff - Anthracite
***Please note this is the more expensive white Mimosa tanned sheepskin and not the normal yellow fur as in the picture. ***
This new range of Kaiser's popular footmuffs are made with only natural material, organic cotton and sheepskin. Perfect for parents concerned with toxins, such as perfluorocarbons (PFCs such as PFOA) that are traditionally used to make fabrics waterproof and have been linked to all sorts of problems for human and the environment.
With its softness, thermal regulation and the ability to evaporate, lambskins are an ideal base for your child. The mimosa sheepskins are tanned with mimosa tanning agent acquired from the bark of the mimosa tree. This takes longer than regular tanning. No dying or covering of spots takes place and the result is a soft skin in a natural shade of beige.
Lambskin with its softness, thermal regulation and the ability to evaporate are an ideal base for your child. The footmuff Natura organic cotton consists 100% of natural materials.
This footmuff fits perfectly on all common buggy models and thanks to its integrated harness slits you can always safely strap your child in. The Lambskin flap can be folded up and fixed with wooden toggle on the sides, so you can protect your child even better against wind. During the summer unzip the front and use it as a liner. It unzips completely and can be laid flat for use as a blanket or pad. Not water proof, use a rain cover over it when it rains.

Wool needs a little extra care when washing! However it is not a fibre like cotton, it repels dirt and is self cleaning and does not need to be washed as often as cotton. Ideally wash it as little as possible. Often hanging it outsides spraying it with a little mist for a day will freshen it up. It can be worn many times without washing and you can spot wash it if something has been spilled on it. It sounds strange but it works!
Care - Untreated wool brands: Engel, Selana and Cosilana are made of untreated merino wool which ideally needs hand washing. Wash very gently by hand in water that must stay the same cool temperature both for washing and rinsing. Changing temperature can shock the wool and shrink it. You should use a special soap for wool or shampoo. Stretch the wool into shape when wet, and pull lengthwise and lay flat to dry.
Many people, including us wash untreated wool on a gentle cold machine washing on a wool or hand wash program. This is at your own risk and you need to be sure your machine actually washes and rinses at the stated temperature, and it is very important to use a wool detergent! If you are planning to wash it in the machine it may shrink a bit length wise, to prevent this happening stretch it lengthwise when it comes out of the machine and perhaps buy a bigger size than otherwise. If you use the machine to spin items, the revolutions must be below 400.
Stretch the wool into shape when wet and dry flat. Never wring it! Especially wool fleece can be destroyed by wringing!
We recommend washing all wool fleece by hand, gentle, no rubbing, squeezing or wringing. lay it flat on a towel to dry. Again often spraying a little water mist on it and having it out will help it self clean.
Treated wool brands: Joha, Fub, Celavi, Misha and Puff can be washed on a cold wool program in the machine without any risk! Please use a wool detergent! Reshape and dry flat for the knitwear!
