Isbjörn adds bamboo to base layer range


As part of its Green at Heart sustainable mission, chidren’s specialist Isbjörn of Sweden is adding natural bamboo fibres to its Husky Base Layer range for Autumn/Winter 2020.

Natural bamboo fibres will be added to the inside of its Husky Base Layer range, which is also made with Mulesing-free Merino wool as an outer material.

The natural blend of materials, including 49 per cent Merino and 46 per cent Bamboo, used in the Husky range is designed to offer a balance of sustainable durability, function and softness. The Merino wool keeps children warm in cold weather and the natural bamboo fibre effectively wicks moisture from the skin for effective vapour transmission. The range is natural anti-odour and anti-bacterial.

The range comprises a Husky Jumpsuit Base Layer for babies, Husky Sweater Base Layer and Husky Long John Base Layer for kids and teens. All quick-drying garments can be washed on a 40-degree cycle with no effect on performance and without pilling.

Husky Long Johns have a soft elastic in the waistline and extended height at the back for comfort perfection.

The range is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 approved. A globally uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials, the standard oversees intermediate and end products at all stages of production with the aim of completely eliminating harmful substances.
