Versatile, merino wool wonders from Smalls!
Hello from South Tirol! We're currently enjoying a week in the mountains, submerged in the beautiful nature and culture of the Dolomites. We're staying in a lovely family run hotel (Hotel Al Plan in San Vigilio di Marebbe) and skiing every day. The children are in ski classes (meanwhile picking up some Italian!), and Tamar and I ...

Beautiful, practical merino wool basics from Luvmother
We recently spent the long holiday weekend with my family on our little island in the San Juans (off the coast of Washington State). It is my favourite place in the whole world, a place where I spent my childhood summers and where my mother and grandmother (and great-grandmother!) spent theirs. It makes me so ...

Merino wool basics from Smalls
I was just thinking the other day how nice it would be to find thin, stretchy merino wool tanks for the kids to wear under their clothing as an extra layer of warmth on these cold winter days... and literally the next day I discovered the range from Smalls. It could not be better timing. ...

New merino wool muslin products from Aden + Anais

The Bugaboo wool collection
Wool is known for its wonderful, temperature regulating properties. So this past summer, when it was hot and humid and sticky, I cut holes in a sheep skin and put it in my Bugaboo as a seat cover. Like this Casper was always on a soft, natural and breathable 'mattress', which kept him cool as ...

Organic merino wool clothing from MamaOwl
After a lovely and mild (warm even!) Autumn here in Europe, the big storm blew in earlier this week and the weather temps have suddenly dropped. And just like that I'm searching around the house for all the wool layers, scarves & hats. It's November already! Winter is coming! I recently picked up some cosy organic ...

Blue Daisy
Last year around this time, my local art store closed. Bummer, I thought. Until I saw what replaced it... Blue Daisy -- a great children's store in Hampstead with everything one could possibly need for newborns up to pre-schoolers. They stock all my favorite and necessary items, like the Beaba Baby Cook and silicone spoons, ...

A child in sheep’s clothing
