Babies in Sheep's Clothing – Lambskin Boots
We were sent these gorgeous little boots for Garden Boy from Babies in Sheep’s Clothing and right now I am wishing I had tiny feet so I could claim them for my own. Handmade from 100% lambskin these boots are going to be well used by Garden Boy this winter. Any of my regular readers over at Little Garden Helpers will know that Garden Boy’s adventure into the snow last winter was cut quickly short with cold feet. And British winters, lets face it, can be very cold regardless of whether it snows or not.
With these boots however, Garden Boy will have the warmest, snuggliest feet of us all. When they arrived in the post Garden Boy could not get them on his feet quickly enough, barely waiting for me to cut the string that held the pair together. I asked him what he thought about them and he said ‘They mine!’ with a tone that suggested anyone about to contradict him should be very wary. ‘Yes, they are yours, but what are they like on your feet? Are they comfy?’ He replied ‘Yes. They like cuddly on my feet,’ followed by giggles. And that truly is a great description for them because they feel like they have a lovely, thick layer of softness inside. I would imagine that wearing them feels very much like wearing slippers, only they have a sturdy, ridged sole which makes them the perfect outdoor winter boot. They cost £39.99 + postage and packing, which might initially seem expensive for a pair of child’s boots, but is actually completely in line with the cost of boots from many high street stores.
Babies in Sheep’s Clothing also make a gorgeous range of Lambskin jackets, which if the quality of the boots is anything to go by, will be made to last, so you should be able to get a couple of years wear out of them and then pass them on to younger siblings. They also make booties, hats, gilets and mittens, along with lambskins for babies and some absolutely gorgeous looking merino wool products that would make excellent gifts for new babies.
Both the New Zealand lambskins and Merino wool used to make Babies in Sheep’s Clothing products are ethically sourced from sustainable suppliers so you can be happy in the knowledge that your little ones are wearing eco-friendly products that are kind to their skin. They also appear to be very well made and comfortable.
