Ruskovilla Organic Merino Wool Children's Long Sleeved Undershirt

Ruskovilla
RU1210
$44.95 - $54.95

This soft and durable organic merino wool long sleeved shirt for toddlers and children is lightweight yet very warm.  This shirt works nicely for layering underneath another shirt as a warm base layer and is also a lovely shirt on its own.   Merino wool is breathable, soft and pleasant next to the skin, absorbs moisture without feeling damp, retains warmth very well, and does not require frequent laundering. 

Ruskovilla has been manufacturing environmentally friendly textiles in Finland since 1981.    They are deeply committed to quality during every phase of production;  from the raw materials to the finished product, the company takes people and environment into consideration. 

The wool is ethically produced organic merino wool from Argentina and Uruguay and is produced according to the criteria of IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V.). The yarn is spun by a German spinnery, and it is certified by IMO (Institute for Marketecology).  The spinnery uses as few synthetic chemicals as possible for dying woollen yarn. The dying process takes place in closed system with the use of reactive dyes causing the fibres to react completly with the dye and preventing the dyes from running. Therefore, reactive dyes are safer option for garments that are in direct contact with the skin. No chrome dyes or heavy metal salts are used in the organic production process. Any harmless auxiliary products that are indispensible in the dyeing process are flushed out in the post-dyeing rinsing process. 

Made in Finland.  

Care:  Hand wash and lay flat to dry.  Wool does not soil easily and does not retain odors, so it does not need to be washed very frequently. Please refer to our Wool Care guide for more details, and don't forget your wool care products

Sizing:  Sizes are based on the height of your child in centimeters.  You may refer to the size chart below (please note that all measurements below are in centimeters). For assistance, please contact us.

Love Ruskovilla

I really like Ruskovilla everything. This shirt is the thickest (sicker than any other brand excluding sweaters) while very soft. My kid wore it this chilly morning to the daycare, and he also asked to keep his Ruskovilla pajama pants instead of changing to normal pants. I had multiple sizes made in different years, and some were softer than Engel's wool+silk while some were less soft until washed multiple times (all of them were softer than Engel’s wool-only shirts though).
It is important to me to have shirts long enough to avoid bare back when kid enjoys outside on his knees and I’m not around to fix it, so I get larger sizes for winter in all brands. My boy has a very long & thin torso, and Ruskovilla shirts are designed to be closer to the body comparing to Engel’s, plus their necks don't stretch. Engel's silk+wool shirts are more colorful, but they stretch easily; their necks start larger and immediately stretch quite a bit. I wish Ruskovilla to come in more colors though, colors are good for grey cold times of the year.

Worth every penny!

Exceptional quality, must-have for winter. We like to keep 2 in current proper size - one to enjoying wearing while the extra one has enough time to wash, air dry & be ready to switch out when needed - but generally can wear multiple times before needing to wash. True to size & easy to care for, in our experience. Even though we always air dry, the turn-around time is surprisingly quick! Hand-me-down quality, if you have a cedar chest for storing such treasures between children.
