Warm, comfortable and happy kids walk further, ski longer and happily spend more time in the great outdoors. I’ve made sure my Children’s base layers are packed with child friendly features. 

My orange merino wool children’s base layer has been designed specifically for kids with comfort in mind, that and to make them look super fresh too!

Why do I need a Lukla base layer?

The Lukla is suitable as a base layer in cold weather or an outer layer in warmer weather for versatility, meaning you don’t need loads of clothes for different conditions.

The body is a longer length than standard kids clothing so they can be tucked in and stay tucked in.

The trunk is ventilated for temperature control and the specific properties of merino wool ensure that they don’t get too hot or too cold (saving you having to stop and readjust kit!)

There are thumb loops to ensure the tops stay in place under jackets and gloves, saving you time fishing out lost sleeves from inside jacket sleeves!

…and even a built in snood for warmth and comfort. 

So no more cold, uncomfortable and lets face it, grumpy kids!

How do I wash my base layer?

If looked after correctly these tops should last forever. You do need to follow a few golden rules when washing them:

  • Wash on a short cycle handwash or delicate wash cycle, no higher than 30 degrees.
  • Never use fabric conditioner
  • Never tumble dry

You should expect some pilling in time as this is a 100% wool product. Merino wool is naturally resistant to pilling.

How do I choose the correct size?

The lukla comes in Age size, the sizing comes up big as standard so can last for 2 seasons depending on how quickly your child grows. Please refer to the size guide for more detailed measurements or contact me on or call on 07817 104595 for further advice on sizing. 

What happens when the top is outgrown?

I want my clothing to last forever. All my clothing is unisex in its design and fit meaning you can hand clothing on to younger siblings. If you have nowhere to hand your clothing on and it has been outgrown, then simply return your used product to me for recycling and I will give you 20% off your next order. If you find your product is damaged on one of your adventures, don’t throw it out, I have patches available in all colours so you can make any snags part of your family history. Every snag has a story to tell. Just email and I’ll send your free patch.

Please refer to our sizing chart for full sizing details for our children's base layer and contact us if you have any queries on sizing. Please Note the following information regarding our kids base layers. Our base layers are intentionally longer in the body and will fall below the hips. This is to allow for the product to be tucked in when worn as a base layer. It is also to provide extra warmth and comfort. This also makes the product perfect for taller kids.

Merino Wool Care Instructions & Golden Rules:

Our Merino wool care instructions for our Lukla Baselayer are as follows:
  • Machine wash on a delicate or wool wash cycle, no higher than 30 degrees.
  • Never tumble dry.
  • Don’t use fabric conditioner.
  • Don’t use bleach.

Extending your garments life:

  • Even better than a delicate or wool wash is to handwash your merino.
  • Make sure you either line dry or lay your garment flat after gently reshaping, do not wring dry. Merino is quick drying so should dry overnight in a warm room.
  • Merino doesn’t crease easily but if you do need to iron your garment then use a cool iron.
  • Use a mild, non-biological detergent where possible.
  • Be careful with zips/jewellery etc as wool can snag causing holes.
  • As a wool product, you should expect some pilling with time, you can reduce the amount of pilling by using the gentle wool/hand wash cycle on your machine.
  • If it’s cared for properly your garment shouldn’t show signs of shrinkage but items can shrink when exposed to high temperatures so never tumble dry or wash on a cycle higher than 30 degrees, the lower the better.

It is important that you follow our merino wool care instructions to extend the products life and to avoid damage.

Failure to follow the merino wool care instructions above may lead to your product shrinking. It is particularly important to wash your Lukla kids baselayer on a cool handwash cycle or delicate cycle as high temperatures can cause merino to shrink and felt. We are unable to exchange products that have been damaged due to incorrect washing. Please CONTACT US if you have any additional questions with regards to our merino wool care instructions.
