Every Autumn Nappy Ever After puts in an order for organic woollen clothing to Engel Natur and Disana. This year our ‘Wool Event’ at the shop is on Saturday 20 October 3-5pm. Hopefully if I’m organised there will be some home-made cake too!
For those of you who have a fear of washing wool there’s one simple rule: it must be washed and rinsed at a similar temperature (hot, cold or warm) or you shock it. For years I ruined so many woollens; now that I do this, they remain as good as new. I will have samples to show you.
We keep down the price by taking pre-orders and pre-payment. This way you get high-quality organic merino wool and silk clothing (for babies, children and adults) at about 50% of the cost you would pay normally. Looked after properly these clothes are an investment; they last for ages, and baby and children’s clothes can be passed on.
In the past, customers have ordered natural wool/silk vests for babies, sleepsuits with feet (for babies who kick off the blankets), colourful sleeveless vests/long sleeve vests and leggings for kids as well as adult black wool/silk and cotton/silk vests and leggings from Engel. From Disana, we order bonnets, boots and mittens. We’re happy to review the items in the Engel and Disana catalogues and order other items as requested. Disana boiled wool items often need to be ordered in advance and can take longer to arrive.
We do this because we want to give business to the companies that continue to make these truly magnificent products but also we want you to have the experience of wearing them. I only discovered woollen underwear for me and my family after being introduced to it by a Nappy Ever After customer; now we’re hooked. We look forward to the cold so we can wear them.
If you really want to be there but can’t make it let me know. We could also arrange a late night opening before or after according to demand.
After the event there will be a week for you to choose, make orders and pre-payment. We usually get everything delivered about 10 days later.
Please let us know if you’re coming so we know how many people to expect. And how much cake to bake!
PLEASE NOTE: Discounted prices are only available on pre-ordered items, not our usual stock lines. Prepayment is required. All orders are taken at the customer’s risk however we can advise on sizing. There are no returns or refunds on pre-ordered goods.
