I know it's a bit early to be thinking about coats but I've started noticing lots of coats in the shops which has made me start to think about what coat DD (22mo) will wear this winter. I'd really like to get her a duffle coat (preferably red) but the only ones I've seen (M&S and Boden) are dry clean only which seems a bit impractical for a toddler Any ideas?
I'm back Well the coats are wool/viscose (sorry, can't remember the percentages but I think it was 60/40 one way or the other) and DRY CLEAN ONLY! Sorry. Also the smallest size is 3-4 years. So I guess they're no good for you.
DS has a couple, one from Ladybird (woolworths) and one from Tesco, both age 2-3 (not red though, sorry). Both go in the wash (and have done lots) no problem. Both seem to be proper duffle coats as far as I can tell!
My ds's both wore a fab duffle coat from Gap. It was dry clean only but I washed it a couple of times on the wool cycle and it was fine. To be honest even with 2 really mucky boys I didn't need to do it that often as the mud etc just brushes off once it is dry. In contrast DS1's current coat which is fabric and is washable needs washing all the time.
