If you’re like us, you’re drawn to the true, beautiful, and good things in life. You’re inspired by simple and profound moments when your true self emerges from the excess. And you appreciate beautifully crafted, multi-functional items that simplify your day-to-day.
With those ideas in mind, we designed our Thermal Long Johns as both a high-performance base layer and your kid’s softest and coziest pajamas. Sure, I guess we could have made one set of long johns and another set of pajamas, but that would just add unnecessary clutter.
Instead, we created something truly exceptional that can be worn day and night — keeping your little one warm during those daytime explorations in the great outdoors and cozy during nighttime.
To achieve this vision, we started with a super soft merino wool from New Zealand. Merino fibers trap tiny pockets of air that insulate the wearer against hot and cold temperature swings, which means that our long johns help your little one maintain a consistent and comfortable body temperature — whether she is outside or inside.
Plus, merino wool wicks away moisture, doesn’t hold odor, and is super soft. The end result: your child is warm, dry, sweet smelling, and cozy all day and night. Mother Nature endowed merino wool with these attributes through patient evolution, and our kids are the beneficiaries.
And, your daytime adventurer might even get a better night sleep in our Thermal Long Johns! Researchers at the University of Sydney found that wool sleeping apparel and bedding increases the the total sleep time and improves sleep efficiency. It could be the softness of the fabric; it could be temperature-regulating qualities; or it could be the moisture management. Whatever it is, a good night of sleep is welcome news for any parent.
When your kid wakes up after a good night sleep, you don’t have to strip off the merino long johns. Head outside! If snow is falling, throw on the snowsuit over the merino long johns, and walk to that sledding hill with your child, build a snowman, or just catch snowflakes on your tongue.
And to us, that’s what it means to design something true, beautiful, and good. You and your little one can just focus on what really matters — exploring this big beautiful world together.
