Stay Warm and Well-Dressed Overall
The Baby Overalls from Engel will go everywhere with your little ones during the cold season. There's a head to cover little heads and tiny hands and feet can be protected with an additional cover if necessary. The “wool fleece” material warms optimally, is soft and does not scratch the skin. Your child's temperature balance is ideally supported by the special attributes wool is known for: the overalls keep you warm, but excess heat is released to the outside. Moisture is absorbed through the suit without feeling clammy.
The wool is easy to clean; for light to medium dirt, it is often sufficient to pat the overalls out or air them outside.
We also offer baby booties from Engel to match the overalls.
Engel produces its textiles in Germany according to the highest ecological and social criteria. The products are certified with the “IVN BEST” quality mark or with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

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.
