We would never try to pull the wool over your eyes, so you can believe us when we tell you that merino is the new cashmere.
Forget what you think you know about wool (read: itchy, scratchy, and thick). Today’s kids are feeling something cozier thanks to New Zealand-based Little Flock of Horrors.
Unlike the wool of your childhood, merino fibers are smooth and fine. And the collection renders the best of what wool naturally offers — soft threads, insulation on cool days, and breathability on warm days — with style. Vibrant colors, stripes, and basic black and gray are fashioned into leggings, onesies, tees, dresses, and kimono tops that look as good as they wear.
Plus, they’re naturally antimicrobial and odor resistant, which means Little Flock clothing doesn’t require washing after every wear. (We promise, it’s true.) When pieces do get dirty, wash in cool water and hang to dry.
Not too baaaaad.
Available at lfoh.net, $50-$85.
