Keep Bub Cosy With Hand Knitted Baby Clothing

Clothes for babies have been knitted since as far back as 500AD. Whether they are knitted with wool or even organic cotton, there is a full range of gorgeous hand knitted baby clothing available on eBay for a great price.

Why buy hand knitted baby clothing?

Hand knitted baby clothes are fantastic to buy, wear, and even to keep for generations. They have an aesthetic and subtle sentimental value you can't find with machine knitted baby clothing. Plus, knitted baby clothing is made from softer, better-quality yarn. Hand knitted baby clothes have many benefits, including:

  • Free from chemicals

Hand knitted baby clothes are eco-friendly and don't use any chlorine, chemicals or perfume products. The cotton used in hand-knitted baby clothes comes in all shades and patterns and can be customised in the designs according to the needs and preferences of the parents. Instead of other chemical materials that can pose serious health risks like the use of acetone and petroleum-based glues, yarns and fabrics made from wool are high in vitamin B.

  • Eco-friendly and durable

Hand knitted clothes are designed and created using simple techniques that make them perfect for babies – all that’s needed is knitting needles, and wool or cotton. Easy to find and easy to care for, hand-knitted baby clothes are popular due to their eco-friendliness and durability. They are washed by hand to keep the shape, and wool can last for decades.

  • Warmth

Babies have just come from a place that’s super warm, and when they are first exposed to reality, the air can be extremely cool on their delicate skin. Wool clothing is extremely warm and is ideal for keeping your baby feeling warm and comfortable during cooler nights and days. Don’t worry though, depending on the product you purchase wool can also be breathable, so your baby won’t overheat.

  • Health benefits

There are many health benefits for babies when wearing knitted clothing. Knitted clothes are usually more versatile and have stretch capabilities, which is great for babies who need room to grow and develop. They also have fewer seams than other clothes so are less likely to rub and cause friction on the baby’s skin. And knitted products are thicker than your regular cotton clothing, so they have more protection on bub’s little body against bumps when they’re learning how to move around.

Choosing knitted baby clothing online

While knitting with wool is the traditional method for hand knitted baby clothing, cotton yarn is increasing in popularity for several reasons. To start with, it's a lightweight fibre that's good for summer clothing and accessories. It is breathable, comfortable, and it can be easily washed and dried. Cotton knitted clothing for babies is also strong, durable, and affordable.

If you prefer traditional knitted clothing, wool is easy to use, retains its shape and is resistant to wrinkles, is fire and water resistant, is renewable and sustainable, and is ideal for babies that might have skin sensitivity.

Whether you purchase cotton yarn knitted products or wool, there are plenty of options available when you shop on eBay. Check out the full range today, use the filters to find what you're looking for, or simply browse through the collection available to find a product to suit your bub.
