If there’s a silver lining to the grey skies of winter, it’s that when I’m out and about, I catch glimpses of babies and small children in prams or baby carriers looking super snug (and adorable) in the cosiest of woollen accessories. If it’s a fine, luxurious winter accessory you’d love for your baby, we’ve found just the store.
Amsterdam-based La petite V is home to the most beautifully designed, timeless pieces that will last far beyond the current season. With such quality, we have no doubt La petite V items can be passed from one child to the next. While many will squirm at the mention of caring for cashmere, we’re assured these items can be hand washed or use the wool cycle on your washing machine at home.
Our favourites include the Bonnet, available in two sizes 0-6 months and 6-18 months and made from pure cashmere, you can choose from pink, blue, ecru and dark grey. Both sizes are priced €49.
I can’t imagine anything more heavenly than wrapping your newborn in a buttery soft cashmere Hooded Blanket. Measuring just under a metre square, there’s enough luxurious fabric to keep even bigger babies beautifully warm. Available in both cashmere (€169) or a blend of Merino wool and cashmere (€149), this blanket has all the making of a stunning welcome gift for a newborn baby!
