GoBabyGo non-slip wool socks
The wool socks are made of soft Superwash-wool, which is comfortable to wear and provides good movement and warmth for the child. Wool is temperature-regulating, so in a warm environment, the heat will be lead from the body to keep your child dry.
In a cold environment, the socks contain the heat produced by the feet to keep your child's feet warm. In addition, wool has a sun-protecting effect and acts as a natural UV filter. Wool can also absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling wet.
The wool socks with non-slip soles and non-slip nops on the toes make the baby more stable when it takes its first steps and at the same time keep the child warm.
GoBabyGo only use RSW certified wool
GoBabyGo only use mulesing-free wool for all products, and we only work with suppliers that are certified with the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS).
What is Mulesing?
Mulesing is a practice in which skin is removed from the rear of the Merino sheep - without anesthetization - to prevent flies from laying their larvae on the sheep. When sheep become infested with these maggots, they can fall ill with severe infections which can even lead to the sheep’s death. When a sheep has undergone the mulesing process, its rear becomes scarred and smooth, upon which insects are unable to burrow. Mulesing is a painful surgical procedure for sheep, and it can be avoided.
No animal should have to go through the pain and stress that this kind of procedure causes. Public pressure to improve sheep welfare has led to the wool industry researching alternatives to mulesing. Luckily, there are other ways to keep sheep safe from these insects, but they are more expensive in the long run. Therefore mulesing-free wool items might cost a bit extra.
For us as a company, animal protection is an important central theme and therefore we only use high-quality mulesing-free wool from suppliers that are certified with the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS).
