If you're looking to bundle up your little one during winter months, take a look at Babies in Sheep's Clothing's cute and cuddly collection of merino wool clothing and outerwear for children. The mittens, sweaters, scarves, jackets, and booties--take a closer look after the jump--are handmade in New Zealand with natural fibers (no synthetics or polyester) and ethically-sourced materials. The products "only get better with age," and the brand encourages customers to pass clothing on to the next generation--or two. We spoke with Vicky Barry, of Quite Great Communications (their PR firm) in the UK, who told us a bit more on the "ethically produced lambskin." Barry speaks to Babies in Sheep's Clothing's sustainability efforts, below.

The low rise booties, lambskin hats, lamb skin mittens, and jackets are all made from lambs that die of natural causes except for the ugg-style booties. The tanning process used for the whole collection uses the least amount of chemicals possible. The sheep farming in New Zealand is lot better than in Australia as the lambs are able to roam free in the mountains. Lysette the owner has visited the farms where local people work with local produce and the standard of living is much better than other sheep farms.
