Bumby Fuzzy wool is made exclusively for Bumby. Our Mill in California sets up their massive 2 story knitting machine just for us and makes one of the softest and most stretchy merino wool blends on the market. Our products are all made right here in-house. We are a team of 3 moms working together in blissful harmony to lovingly create every item that gets shipped to your door.
Our wool is dyed with large washers filled with boiling hot water from a commercial boiler with professional quality dyes. We use commercial food grade citric acid to set the colours, and take our time to make sure they are set well. We wash and rinse our wool several times to minimize any transfer for our customers.
Our Colours are one of our main points of interest. It is really an art to create the multitude of shades and hues that you can find at Bumby. From Light to Dark and Muted to Vibrant, Bumby has you covered.
We call our wool Fuzzy Wool, because it has a soft fluffy feel like the softest plush sweatshirts. This wool is created with Merino Wool which is the softest breed of sheep available. It is blended with less than 5% lycra to give some stability to the fabric and allow it to be machine washable. The knit style is called Interlock, because the fabric is a double sided 4 way stretch knit which interlocks between the sides. Most people would never believe its actually wool.
The fabric is reasonably durable, and washes so well. Many customers have used the same item for literally years, passing down between siblings. Often times, due to the stretch of the fabric, the same item can also fit the same child for years too. As the big booty diaper bums transition to big kid undies, the wool just keeps on going.
