Interesting Facts

All babyally garments are hand knitted to the highest standards of workmanship, using only very high quality yarns, and are designed for comfort and warmth. In addition, most of our garments use only organically produced and naturally dyed yarn. Using organically produced naturally colored yarn results in a garment that is superbly comfortable, non-irritating to sensitive skin, and very soft. Naturally colored yarns also have the advantage that the colors are stable and non-fading with time.

Organic yarns are produced without using harsh chemicals as pesticides and herbicides in the growth of the plants and the feeding of the animals. In addition, the animals which provide the raw material fibers used to spin the yarns are not fed any artificial hormones or antibiotics. In order to be certified as organic the yarn must be produced and handled in accordance with strict standards at each step in the process from source to finished product. Organic wool and cotton and other natural fibers are biodegradable and kinder to the environment than synthetic fibers.

Many babyally garments are knitted using unique and exotic yarns such as bamboo, organic cotton, silk, organic cashmere wool and Merino wool. Use of these yarns results in a unique and superbly beautiful garment that will be cherished for generations to come.
