Product Description

Perfect baby balaclava. Made of 30% pure silk and 70% organic merino wool they are soft, breathable and will help your baby regulate his or her temperature. This only come in white natural. 

Wool and silk is great all year around. In the winter it can be worn as a thermal base layer, and on warmer days on it’s own. Wool and silk is also perfect for sleeping in. Wool is great as an inner layer because it helps to regulate the bodies temperature and it can absorb much more liquid than cotton, keeping your little one dry. 

All Engel products are made of organic (GOTS certfied) virgin merino wool and produced in Germany. All the  dyestuffs used are free from heavy metals and free from harmful AZO-dyes.

About The Brand+-

Engel

Engel is one of the original champions of untreated organic merino wool clothes. The wool comes from Merino sheep kept in their natural environment, organically farmed and therefore living a healthy and stress-free life. The usage of pesticides is forbidden both on pastures and on animals. All of Engel’s products are organic (GOTS certfied) and produced in Germany. All the dyestuffs used are free from heavy metals and free from harmful AZO-dyes.

The brands philosophy, which they have pursued from the start, is to provide their customers with high-quality, ecologically compatible, feel-good products which can be bought with a clear conscience and out of conviction.
Renewable raw materials are used and Engel make sure that the finished garments contain no pollutants. They also avoid completely, the use of substances that are harmful to health or the environment during the entire garment production process. Waste is avoided wherever possible.

Engel are committed to fair, safe employment for a fair wage, not only in our own company but throughout all the production stages.

Sizing+-

The Baby's and Kid's sizes always refer to their body heights in centimetres. This means items in size 50/56 are suitable for babies with a maximum body height of 56 cm. The adults sizing refer to the standard European size tables.

Product Care+-

You don’t need to wash Engel products before wearing them for the first time. After the knitting process, all fabrics are washed to rinse out any excess dye residues, in the first place, and secondly to remove knitting oils and dirt.

Engel recommend that you wash their wool and wool/silk fabrics as little as possible. Wool regenerates in oxygen-rich air of its own accord and so it can also just be well-aired.

Cotton- You can machine-wash all Engel cotton products at 40 °C. Do not use detergents containing optical brighteners, as the colours may fade or change. Apart from this, the whitening agents that build up on the fibre are said to have a harmful effect on contact with skin. In addition, they are not easily biodegradable. A mild or colour detergent is better for the skin and the environment.

Wool and wool/silk- Washing by hand is recommended or possibly machine washing if you trust your machine to keep the same wash and rinse temperature throughout. In any case, you should use a wool detergent because these do not contain any enzymes (protease) and are pH-neutral. This is essential for your washing machine’s wool programme. However, a gentle baby shampoo can also sometimes be a good substitute when it comes to a quick hand-wash.

Please always check the washing instructions or label to see whether hand-washing or machine-washing is recommended.

Hand-washing:

Briefly swirl around a little in plenty of luke-warm water, squeezing gently, using a mild detergent specially designed for wool, then rinse in water of the same temperature. Do not put in the tumble drier or on radiators as this will make the wool hard, brittle and felted. We recommend squeezing the products in a towel after rinsing, pulling them into shape while wet and drying them flat.

Do not: Rub, wring out or spin, expose to changes in temperature (first warm water then cold, or vice versa). Do not soak.

Machine-washing:

(only if your machine has previously been tested to handle natural, untreated wools.)

Select the Wool Wash/Hand Wash programme. “Cold” or max. 30 °C in the machine. This will keep your wool garments soft, elastic and absorbent. With machine-washing too, it is very important that the temperature is the same for both washing and rinsing and that you check that a low spin speed is either part of the programme or can be set manually – max. 400-500 rpm. You should also use a wool-wash detergent for machine-washing, as silk and wool are protein fibres which should basically be cared for with products in the slightly acid pH range (below 7 pH value). These products do not remove the natural oil and protect the fibres at the same time.

Small Kids Balaclava

Brilliant. Soft and warm and stays on whereas hats get thrown off.

Great for layering and on its own

Really lovely soft material that is thin enough to layer under another hat or a hood but also warm enough to be used on its own on milder days. Sizes are generous so we will get a lot of use out of this! Lovely piece as always from MamaOwl!

Perfect under helmets

I bought these to keep my kids‘ heads and necks warm when they get on the bike and to wear under helmets. I remember hating mine as a kid but my kids love theirs and I think it’s because they are super soft. The brand generally is brilliant quality and value for money.
