This Engel Natur jacket made of wool fleece is one of our favourites, due to its combination of properties. The jacket is wonderfully soft and warm, yet airy and light! We find it ideal for your little one to wear while in the sling or baby carrier, but also for going for a walk in the stroller or for playing outside. The sturdy cuffs on the sleeves prevent wind from entering the jacket, so your little one stays cozy and warm. Engel has released these jackets in several beautiful colours. Which colour do you think your child suits best?
With use, the soft material will get a typical fleece structure. Just like usual fleece fabric, except this fabric is made of wonderful organic wool (free of polyester!)

These jackets run large. To help you determine the right size, we measured each size for you (see size chart on the right). We advise you to compare the dimensions with those of a jacket that currently fits your child well, so you can be sure that you order the right size for your child! (Don’t worry if upon arrival the jacket still seems a bit big, you can easily fold back the sleeves a little if needed).
This product doesn't need to be washed before using it for the first time. After the knitting process, the fabric is washed to rinse out any excess dye residues and to remove knitting oils and dirt. It should be washed as little as possible. Wool regenerates in oxygen-rich air of its own accord so it can also just be well-aired or hung in the damp of the bathroom after a shower.
Need a wash anyway? Wool fleece is more sensitive than other woolen fabrics. We strongly recommend washing this jacket by hand in lukewarm water of max. 30°C and with a little (biological) wool-wash detergent. Make sure to prevent temperature variations (so don't rinse with cold water!). After washing, gently squeeze the water out of the jacket, pull it into shape (avoid wringing or rubbing) and let it air dry while laying flat. Should you choose to machine wash this jacket, please note that this is at your own risk. You should select a wool wash programme of max. 30°C and manually adjust the spin speed to max. 600 rpm. Use a little wool-wash detergent, don't use any softener. Cold rinsing can cause the jacket to shrink, make sure this feature is disabled.
