How do your layers fit?

Our layers have been designed to provide a little more length than your average garment so that your quickly-growing little one can get at least 6 months out of our pieces. Please take a look at our size charts available on each of our product pages for more information.

Is merino wool itchy?

No, merino wool is not itchy.

Iksplor merino is superfine at 18.9 microns, meaning it is snuggly soft and a perfect next-to-skin fiber for year-round use. It’s especially great for baby’s sensitive skin (or anyone’s sensitive skin) – research has even shown it to help reduce the redness of conditions like eczema. It's also the perfect fiber to help little ones regulate their temperature, which babies have a tough time doing!

Is merino safe for infants?

Yes, merino wool is safe for infants. Merino wool is a natural and breathable fabric that helps to regulate your baby's body temperature and keep them comfortable. It is also hypoallergenic, which is beneficial for babies with sensitive skin.

Research has also shown that babies swaddled in merino settle more quickly and fall asleep faster. YES, you read that right!

Why is merino wool better for the environment than other fabrics?

Merino wool is more sustainable than other fabrics because it is biodegradable, renewable and has a lower carbon footprint. Merino wool is also naturally breathable, wicking away moisture and regulating body temperature, so it uses less energy to produce than other fabrics.

Where are your products made?

We source our merino wool exclusively through the Responsible Wool Standard Program to ensure it meets the highest standards of animal welfare and land management. The wool is then ethically processed, dyed with eco-friendly Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified dyes, and finally, crafted into the cozy iksplor pieces you love by our trusted RWS certified manufacturing partner in Vietnam.

Do you sell separates?

While we do not typically sell tops and bottoms separately for babies and kids they are sometimes available on our pre-loved store.

If you do not see the size you are looking for on our pre-loved site, please reach out to us directly at letsgo@iksplor.com and we will check our inventory!
