How do I care for my Bamboo Clothing?

Why is Bamboo a fabric great for kids with eczema and allergies?

Bamboo is like a superhero fabric for kids with eczema/allergies!  It’s naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial so it’s gentle on sensitive skin.  Bamboo is also like nature’s temperature control - it’s fantastic at letting air through, preventing overheating and sweating.  As we know, eczema doesn’t get along with moisture.

What TOG should I get?
  • 0.5 TOG: This is the lightest option suitable for warm summer months or when the room temperature exceeds 24°C (75°F). It provides minimal insulation and is ideal for ensuring your baby doesn't overheat.
  • 1.0 TOG: A versatile option that works well year-round, or for rooms with a stable temperature around 20°C (68°F). It provides a moderate level of warmth and can be paired with appropriate clothing layers.
  • 2.5 TOG: The warmest TOG rating, recommended for standard room temperatures between 16°C and 20°C (61°F-68°F). It offers more warmth and is suitable for colder winter months or cooler nurseries.  This can also be a good option for summer camping trips, when evening temperatures drop.

How can I prevent pilling?

Pilling is a common problem with bamboo clothes, but there are steps you can take to prevent it. Here are some tips to help you keep your bamboo clothes from pilling:

Wash them inside out- Washing your bamboo clothes inside out can help prevent pilling.

Use a gentle detergent- Use a mild detergent that is free of bleach and fabric softeners. This will help preserve the bamboo fibers and keep your clothes soft.

Avoid the dryer- Hang or lay flat to dry, as bamboo fabric can shrink in the dryer. If you must use the dryer, use a low heat setting.

Brush them- Gently brushing your bamboo clothes with a soft-bristled brush can help remove any pilling that has occurred

What is GSM?

Understanding GSM (Grams per Square Meter) is essential for bamboo children's clothing, as a higher GSM offers several advantages:

  1. Durability: Higher GSM means denser fabric, enhancing durability for active kids.
  2. Warmth: Thicker bamboo with higher GSM provides better insulation for comfort in cold weather.
  3. Opacity: Higher GSM fabric offers better coverage and privacy, ideal for diapers or training pants.
  4. Softness: Higher GSM bamboo often feels even softer, adding to children's comfort.
  5. Absorbency: It typically offers superior moisture absorption, essential for baby clothing.
  6. Visual Appearance: Higher GSM fabric appears more substantial and luxurious, ideal for quality and style.

Investing in higher GSM bamboo clothing can provide durability, warmth, comfort, and style for your child.
