Silk seamless rib leggings by Minimalisma. Super soft stretchy elastic waistband and plain hem. No irritating side seams and a highly stretchable tubular fabric for superior comfort and longevity. Each piece is designed to fit for at least six months while the child keeps growing, and to be washed repeatedly but still remain in good-enough condition to pass on to the next child.
Silk is insulating and breathable and has a natural thermoregulation ability to ensure that your baby can maintain an ideal body temperature, allowing the skin to breathe easily in summer and hold heat in winter. Silk can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in fluid without feeling damp so baby’s skin will stay dry. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and highly beneficial to a child’s sensitive skin. As the innermost or outermost layer of the silk moth cocoon, silk contains many antimicrobial materials with which the caterpillar protects itself during pupation. The healing and anti-inflammatory properties of these antimicrobial materials are also effective on human skin. Placed directly on baby’s skin, the healing properties of silk help reduce any irritation and leave the skin comforted. Silk is ideal for sensitive skins due to its hypoallergenic properties, as dust mites cannot live in silk.
By its nature, silk is environmentally friendly. No pesticides can be used on the mulberry trees and silk is produced in the same low-impact way as in the last 5000 years. Silk is also naturally flame-resistant, and caring for silk is easy as it is machine washable at 30 degrees, gentle cycle, using a mild detergent and dries quickly naturally.
