Cashmere

  Its origin lies in the lonely and isolated local populations in the mountains of Tibet, on the southern slopes of the Himalayas and in the Xinjiang region of China, mountain areas with below-zero temperatures where the Cashmere goat has its origins. The fibre is obtained from the deepest, finest and most delicate part of the goat's wool. Because of its characteristics and scarcity, its price is relatively high compared to some other fibers. It is soft to the touch, silky, light and good thermal isolator.

Merino Wool

  Different from common wool, as it comes from a specific type of sheep with different and very beneficial properties, with a very fine, soft and very high quality fibre that adapts better to the skin. Being so fine, it is very warm as its weave has more fibers that create small air pockets that help to maintain body heat. Besides not producing itchiness in contact with the skin, as sometimes happens with other wools, it is flexible and particularly resistant, in blankets and other baby clothes it helps to perfectly maintain body heat much more than cotton. Another of its great advantages is its very high water absorption, as this wool can absorb up to 33% of humidity, which...

Emmi Pikler As babies begin to interact with their environment and develop their mobility, it is imperative that we first provide a secure environment. This space must be 100% safe and free of any harm, therefore welcoming infants to explore confidently. To complement their natural ability to move freely, appropriate clothing plays a key role. Clothes should be comfortable and provide necessary warmth, giving infants an opportunity to carry on with their exploration. One way of showing our respect to young children is by letting them know that we value their...

Basic care is not enough.

Through her years of research, Dr. Pikler concluded that supplying basic care to satisfy a child’s biological needs wasn’t enough. A baby needs more than that;he wants to know that he matters. Because this young baby cannot speak, he may cry to catch the adult’s attention hoping that she interprets these cries as an invitation to slow down, to engage. Most of the time, an adult is not rough in her manner of care;  she simply fails to read any cues emanating from his tense body. Yet something is happening inside this baby’s brain.  He is forming an image of the world.  He is creating synapses; he is adapting to this care, or lack of, and deducing that the world is a place where his emotional needs do...
