Ruskovilla Organic Wool/Silk Underwear Shirt for Children

Ruskovilla
RU4210
$44.95 - $54.95

This wool/silk long sleeved shirt for toddlers and children is lightweight yet very warm and is perfect for chilly days.  This top works very nicely for layering underneath regular clothing during winter.    A 70% wool/ 30% silk blend combines the desirable characteristics of both fibers for a warm, soft, temperature regulating and breathable garment.  Silk is smooth light, it feels warm and its surface cools wonderfully the hot skin.  Silk insulates, binds and retains heat very well, breathes naturally, and is cool in hot weather and warm in cold.Silk consists of the same elements as human skin, therefore it is said to be like "a second skin." Thanks to its ability to neutralize body odor and absorb moisture without feeling wet, silk is a very suitable material for underwear.  Merino wool is breathable, temperature regulating, and does not feel wet when damp. 

Ruskovilla has been manufacturing environmentally friendly textiles in Finland since 1981.    The company is 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. 

Ruskovilla silk products have not been chemically treated during production and the silk thread we are using has been given the safe textile certificate Öko-Tex Standard 100.

Made in Finland.

* You can also wash silk wool clothing with a washing machine’s wool-wash program (30°C).

* Shape clothing whilst damp.
* Do not dry silk wool in sunlight or close to a heating source.

Worth the investment

Perfect under layer for an active 3 year old in a Boston winter and with the dampness of an Irish winter. Ordered size 100 for a 42 inch and 37lb three year old, perfect size will last until next year without being too big/long.
Ordering another shirt to have one as a spare.
Kiddo does run hot but no issues with this underlayer, it has been great for us.
