Keeping little ones cosy from top to toe
You may have seen Toastie Pig’s monogrammed hat in our Into Autumn Boys edit, and we loved it so much we wanted to tell you more about the brand behind the bobble.
Toastie Pig is a gorgeous British brand specialising in sumptuous accessories for newborns and toddlers. They launched their classic range of super-fine luxury alpaca and cashmerino bobble hats in September 2015 (in a variety of colours; pastels, greys and stripes), and for winter 2016 they’re treating us to a limited-edition range. The new collection introduces vibrant pops of neon detail – choose from ‘Frost’ and its splash of neon pink, or ‘Charcoal’ with neon yellow.
For a truly personal touch that has special-gift written all over it (dare we mention Christmas? Sorry), Toastie Pig now offers a monogrammed design in bespoke hand-knitted silk cashmerino. Available in a classic colour combo of French navy and cream, it features their trademark luxurious oversized fur pom-pom for a touch of winter glamour. WANT.
So why a Brand We Love? Well, not only are Toastie Pig’s hats functional, stylish, great quality and beautifully soft, the brand works hard to support British craftsmen, sourcing all they can from Britain and using responsibly, ethically-sourced fur from within the EU. Plus, the blend of merino, silk and cashmere, with its thermo-regulating brilliance, means no itchy foreheads or sweaty hairlines as the smalls toddle about kicking up leaves or playing in the snow. Win.
But it’s not just their heads that are taken care of, as Toastie Pig’s unique collection of 100% pure sheepskin booties will keep their toes nice and, er, toasty/toastie, too. Our favourites are the super-soft jet-black booties with either pink or yellow neon laces, providing a fun, stylish update on a traditional baby essential. Limited-edition, though, so get in there before we get them all!
