6 Reasons Cotton Clothes Are Great for Kids

When it comes to fabric choices for your children’s clothing there are seemingly 100s of options to choose from.

Many big stores and high street chains opt for synthetic fabric blends like polyester and nylon to cut production costs but unfortunately these blends don’t always make for quality, lasting garments for your children to run, move and play in, something I KNOW kids love to do!

For me, quality matters, and it’s important that the clothes I make here at Taffy Tots not only look great but function well for your little adventurers too, which is why I choose cotton.

Here are 6 reasons why I opt for cotton and why you should too when it comes to your child’s wardrobe:

Cotton is soft

Children’s skin can be delicate and more prone to irritation. Cotton is a great fabric choice for clothing as its soft, breathable and moves with your child’s body, so whether they’re climbing, rolling around or running about, they’ll feel comfortable.

It’s one of the most durable fabrics

Cotton is without a doubt one of the hardest-wearing fabrics you can choose in terms of clothing. Cotton is one of the strongest natural fibres around and can withstand the test of time as well as the elements and, most importantly, playtime!

The easiest fabric to wash and care for

Mystery stains? Not a problem if you’ve opted for cotton. Cotton is one of the easiest fabrics to wash, care for and remove stains from, perfect for muddy fingers and young explorers.

Gentle for allergy prone skin

Did you know that cotton is also naturally resistant to dust mites as it’s a natural fibre? Making cotton the ideal choice for sufferers of asthma. If your child is a seasonal allergy sufferer or is prone to skin irritations such as eczema, then cotton is the gentlest fibre for their sensitive skin.

Cotton is eco friendly

Unlike synthetic fibres, cotton is biodegradable, making it the number 1 choice when it comes to environmentally friendly clothing!

Cotton keeps kids cool

Keep kids cool with cotton! Naturally breathable, cotton clothing can keep children cool during the warm summer, perfect for days spent playing in the sunshine.

You see, when it comes to kids clothing cotton is the clear (and the coolest!) choice.
