I’ve always been a big fan of silk, ever since I became a fiber artist in college. When I became a parent, I never came across this natural fiber in children’s clothing. Now that has changed! Born Silks offers 100% natural silk caps for newborns to toddler aged children.
Did you know that silk is a therapeutic fiber? Natural silk is soothing, breathable, insulating, and hypoallergenic. The insulating qualities of a silk baby cap protects the child’s ears from harmful noises, as well as keeps the baby warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather. Sick contains a gum called sericin, which is a pure protein that treats and cools skin irritations. I wonder if wearing a silk baby cap would help with cradle cap.
Born Silks natural silk fiber caps are absolutely beautiful. The hats have ear flaps and a tie for under the child’s chin. At first glance, the caps appear to run small, but both of my children have large heads so I may not be the best to assess the size. The caps do stretch upon the child’s head though.
Born Silks is a family-run company:
We decided to start our company and this site based on a natural and organic approach to parenting. Our combined experiences have reinforced our belief that choosing quality clothing is one of the most important decisions a parent can make for their young ones. Health, comfort and an underlying belief that the natural way is the better way, are all reasons to feel good about investing in your children’s well being.
The baby’s head is the largest and most sensitive part of the body. It only makes sense to use therapeutic silk to cover your child’s head and protect them from extreme temperatures. I also feel good about supporting family-run companies that share my green family values.
