Can anyone suggest where I can get thermal underwear for a 12 month old? Off to the north of Sweden at the end of February....
Many thanks

Very difficult to source. The best I found was woolen vest from Little Green Earthlets, but they're discontinuing the line so yuo'd have to buy it online pdq. They are excellent vests!

But why not get it there?

Agree v. difficult to find. Try tights and a long sleeved vest as basic and layer it up from there(long sleeved polo neck top, fleece, really good snowsuit etc). Smallest thermals I ever found in UK was aged 2/3 in Mothercare.

Patra silk does vests, I think.

they must have some on scandinavian websites. a friend of mine whose sister went to live in norway was told off by her child's teacher, for sending him to school in insufficient clothing...there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes !

Always knew my great grandparents were right to emigrate.

Have a look at Spirit of Nature . I've just been browsing their paper catalogue and noticed that they have some wool/silk mix long undies and wool/cotton mix tights.

Many thanks for your suggestions - have managed to find some long johns and t-shirts in M&S, which are slightly too big, but I can layer them up with long-sleeved body suits and sleepsuits! Cheers, and Happy New Year

I have got 5 children and they all wear woollies almost all year round. There are vest and long johns made of 100 % wool and are machine washable and very soft to wear. We love them so much that I have started to import them from the Netherlands in this country.
I sell them on my
website
