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.    

Made by Sichuan Alkena, this shirt is 100% natural silk.  Noil silk, or bourette silk, is obtained from short cocoon yarns, which gives it its slightly knobby structure.  The softness and comfort of noil silk truly make it a feel-good material, which will also keep you very warm.  This silk is very popular for people with skin issues and is ideal for babies and children.    

The quality of Alkena silk is second to none, and silk is one of the most ideal options for baby clothing.    Silk is wonderful for the skin, particularly for sensitive baby skin.  Silk is soft, gentle, and truly luxurious.  It is ideal for year-round wear, helping to regulate the body’s temperature and keeping your baby cool during summer and warm during winter.  Silk is both insulating and breathable.  Silk also resists dirt and odors quite well, another reason it’s an excellent choice for babies. 

All of Alkena’s processes, including knitting, weaving, dyeing, printing and sewing are annually inspected and monitored by IMO as against Global Organic Textile Standard.  Sichuan Alkena focuses on dyestuff quality and is environment-friendly. The Alkena dyeing mill utilizes Clariant reactive dyestuff free from heavy metals, toxin and AOX.

Care:   Natural silk regenerates itself very quickly by simply hanging it in fresh air.  When washing is needed, place the garment in a washing net before placing it in the washing machine.  Bourette silk is less delicate than silk jersey and can be washed at 40 degrees C (104 F).  The texture of the garment may be slightly harder just after washing but regains its softness once worn again.  Wash wish a delicate detergent (PH neutral).  Reshape and lay flat to dry.

Ethically made by Alkena Silk in Sichuan Province, China.

Sizing:  Alkena bodysuits are fairly true to size in length, but they do have a wide fit across the chest, tummy and bottom.

Soft, cozy newborn essential

This is my first time trying a silk bodysuit from Alkena, I purchased this for my newborn and I LOVE it. My baby is 8lbs 12oz, 20 in. long, and I have the size 0-3month (56/62) which fits her with plenty of room to grow (it's a tiny bit big but not loose enough to be a concern). I've washed it on "wool wash" setting in machine and it came out perfect. The material definitely has a "natural, earthy texture" as it says in the description, which I love. It's super soft but nappy. Well-made, simple staple item.
