Our clothing runs true to size. Please refer to our size chart to find your child's size based on height and weight. We have added adjustability into many of our styles so your child can continue wearing their favorites for longer.


See each item description for detailed care instructions.

Linen: linen is a wonderful, durable fiber. It is strong and abrasion-resistant, making it the perfect fiber for children's clothing. The fibers breathe well and help keep the wearer warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. It also is more resistant to stains than other natural fibers. Linen is very easy to care for. The more it is worn and laundered, the softer it gets. We recommend washing in cold for longest lasting results and hanging to dry. Warm or hot iron if needed.

You can wash and dry our linen blends, too. We have carefully checked all fabrics used for shrinkage issues so you don't have any surprises if something makes it into the dryer. 

Cotton Gauze: our cotton gauze is incredibly soft! It gets softer and cushier with every wash and wear. The gauze may get pulls occasionally, which is completely normal with this type of loose weave fabric. You may gentle tug them back in, or just leave them to add character, but do not cut them as that might make a hole. Cold wash and hang dry is also recommended for the gauze for the longest lasting results. Our hand-dyed gauze has all been pre-washed and machine dried during the dyeing process, so you will not have shrinkage issues here, either. Hot iron if needed.

Speaking of hand-dyed, there is beautiful color variation with each hand-dyed piece so each garment is unique. We will do our best to match if you purchase two or more pieces at a time, but be advised that dye lots can have a slightly different appearance that just adds to the charm. They wash and dry just like our gauze solids and may fade slightly over time.
