When the cat’s away, the mice will play! Mice are keystone species in almost every ecosystem. In forests, fields, and deserts, mice represent food to predators of all sizes. And in their quasi-agricultural role as harvesters of seeds, rodents actively shape our landscape. Wild mice are diligent parents, building elaborate grassy nests to keep their young safe and warm. Did you know that mouse moms force mouse dads to care for their kids?
We included several types of wool fabrics in the fall / winter collection, but we stayed loyal to our signature fabric – linen. The prevailing myth is that linen is exclusively a summer fabric, but did you know that linen fibre is used to insulate houses? The top layer of wool fabric and soft linen lining creates extra comfort and warmth. The thermoregulatory properties of both fabrics ensure that the optimal body temperature is maintained while preventing overheating by absorbing and evaporating moisture.
• Outside : 100% merino wool
• Lining : 100% softened linen
• Inner ears : 70% alpaca / 30% wool
The bonnet has merino wool laces that tie under the chin to better hold and protect the baby’s ears from the cold weather.
