To Feel Wool is to Feel Well
We are excited about an opportunity within our school for families to obtain wool and wool/silk under and outer clothing. To be dressed in
wool, especially next to the skin, brings a foundational warmth that supports health at all levels – body, soul and spirit. Warmth is the primal substance out of which life is created. For the children it is vital to maintain a balance of warmth for their developing bodies. When they are warm, they feel well and can take up life and learning in an active way.
Wool is not just for winter! Wool is warmth and moisture-regulating, keeping us warm in the cooler months and cooler in the warmer months. It absorbs up to one third of its own weight in moisture and depending on external conditions, is able to return it to the environment. Synthetic clothes may look the same, but they do not allow the skin to breathe and accumulate uncomfortable heat and moisture. Cotton does not “wick” away moisture and can result in a cold and clammy feeling next to the skin.
The clothing is made by German and Swiss companies committed to superior ecological quality, with a long tradition of manufacturing wool clothing. The finest organic Merino virgin wool and natural silk is used without any kind of chemical finishing in the textile processing. This results in clothing that is kind to the skin and to the environment. More
information about the clothing and the manufactures can be found at www.warmthandweather.ca
Orders are required by Friday, November 16th with a cheque payable to the London Waldorf School. Order forms/brochure
Delivery of the clothes will follow in a few weeks. Exchanges or refunds are available, if needed.
May this venture bring warmth to our families as well as support to the school!
