Cozy Support for Little Ones on Chilly Days!
The beautiful wrap-overall from the brand Halfen ( made from 100% organic Merino wool) is the ideal companion for cool summer and autumn days, especially for infants who don't crawl yet but are exploring the outdoors. When used along with a blanket or cushion in the stroller or placed under the wearer's jacket, it offers the additional warmth that young ones need. Its cuddly soft boiled wool is comfortable for little ones to wear, allowing them freedom of movement, and the wrap design makes it easy to put on and take off.
Wool comes with natural properties such as breathability, temperature regulation, and ease of care. This means your child won't get overly sweaty, and the overalls won't need frequent washing – often, just a good brushing is enough.
The Halfen Strickerei is a traditional family business established back in 1928. It's now being run by fourth generation family members.

Our recommendation to always read the care instructions in the respective garments, the special composition of the manufacturer and the origin of the materials often require individual care.
Merino wool and virgin wool
Manufacturers always recommend hand washing, cold and without temperature fluctuations, no wringing and rubbing of the garment. Basically, you should use a laundry bag for your wool laundry, this reduces the friction on the washing machine drum and thus the risk of felting. Textiles made of wool do not get dirty as quickly as cotton textiles, it is usually sufficient to air the textiles and only wash them when they are really dirty.
Always wash wool on the wool cycle and make sure the setting uses cold water, not 30 degrees. Basically, the older the washing machine is, the worse the wool program is, which can lead to problems. Also pay attention to the spin speed, it should be greatly reduced and no final spin should be set.
You should also use a high-quality, organic wool detergent and not a conventional one. Dry your woolen laundry lying on a towel and carefully pull it into shape after washing. Please never let your woolen clothes dry in the blazing sun, in the tumble dryer or on the radiator.
With our Joha and FUB products, we have had good experiences washing them at 30 degrees on a wool cycle. (but we do not assume any guarantee)
Consists of organic new wool, this wool should be gently cleaned. Wool has a high proportion of lanolin (wool fat). This wool fat gives boiled wool items their easy-care and dirt-repellent properties. In the case of light soiling, it is usually sufficient to shake out or brush out the boiled wool garments; the miracle brush is suitable here. Unpleasant odors will disappear if you hang your clothes out in the fresh air overnight.
For larger soiling, the manufacturer recommends washing the clothing inside out by hand. Virgin wool must not be wrung out and dried in the dryer.
Here, too, we as the BabyBox team have had good experiences with the cold wool washing program and clean our boiled wool parts in this way, of course we cannot guarantee this, as the manufacturer recommends hand washing.
