We’re still sweltering with the Australian summer but nothing gets us in the mood for the approaching cool weather quite like a viewing of the winter goodies to come. We are huge fans of Oeuf at Babyology and can’t wait to share this stunning new range with you.
Oeuf have blessed us with a lookbook to swoon over, chock-full of Alpaca wool knits in deliciously subdued hues, with the odd zinger colour thrown in here and there. Brown, black, cream, soft plum and grey form the base line of colours and you’ll see turquoise, vibrant pink, red and mustard thrown in just to mix it up.
I can’t resist the crown and bat boy and girl beanies for warming up little heads and the jumper with angel wings is just so sweet! Striped pants are a staple in my house and the Oeuf super-soft woollen ones will be perfect for the much cooler climes in Australia.
Old-fashioned bonnets, booties and cardis give parents of babies from three months to two years the opportunity to get those magnificent photos of them dressed up like little cherubs. There are dresses for girls and fab hoodies – which I consider to be unisex – with ears. There is also going to be a huge range of accessories, with pillows in the forms of a snake, a pirate, a guitar and my favourite, the tooth.
If that isn’t enough to please, there are gorgeous garlands and charming mask and tail sets for dressing up as wild animals. You just have to see the massive collection for yourself, at Oeuf. We’re sure Kido Store will be picking up some of the ranges so be sure to check with them closer to winter! Oeuf do sizes to fit from three months to eight years.
We must give a special shout out to Oeuf for its commitment to ethical production practices. Through its knitted Alpaca products, it supports indigenous women of Bolivia by paying them a living wage that’s also enough for their children to be schooled (and not in child labour situations) while ensuring that cultural traditions are honoured in the process. I spent a year in Bolivia on exchange as a teenager so the country is very close to my heart.
