This natural Bourette silk bodysuit is an ideal choice for either summer or winter and is especially wonderful for a newborn baby. Silk maintains warmth during cooler weather and keeps your baby cool during hot temperatures. The bodysuit may be worn either on its own or as a soft, warm underarlayer during winter. Silk is a wonderful fabric to be worn directly next to the skin and your little one will be warm and comfortable any time of year. Silk is gentle and healthy for sensitive baby skin and stays cool in summer and warm in winter. The bodysuit features sleeves that are "short" (about 3/4 length) and an envelope neck opening so you can easily dress your baby.
This bodysuit is made from natural Bourette silk, which is quite different from pure filament silk. Bourette silk has a more uneven, natural, earthy texture, rather than the smooth, 'silky' texture that most people associate with silk. Bourette silk is known for its natural healing properties, making it an excellent choice for babies.
