ManyMonths® is celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2022! Their woolies are designed in Finland by Bettina, founder and a mom who sent her children to a Waldorf school and saw the need for clothing that is warm, durable and grows with children over many months and years. ManyMonths® is unique in that it has patented features to ensure a wider range of fit. Things like adjustable elastic waist, adjustable leg length, foldable cuffs, buttons to adjust sleeves and romper strap length, and even a bodysuit where the bottom half detaches and turns into a shirt!
When it comes to warmth and durability, the wool is top notch! The 100% merino wool fabric is 380gsm, meaning that it is NOT just a base layer. Additionally, it is ribbed to create pockets of warmth and the fibers are twisted for extra durability when washing. In the current market, wool base layers have a weight of 180-195gsm. Time and time again, parents complain about how easy base layers get holes and that they're sick of paying for wool that simply doesn't hold up. ManyMonths® is different!

ManyMonths® is leading the way in ethics and sustainability. The woolies are non-mulesed, not super-wash treated, not moth treated, and they use safe certified dyes. They are some of the purest woolies, which ensure that their natural properties of being UV protective, temperature regulating, moisture wicking, soft and warm are held to the highest standard. They're even machine washable!
