Protective Caps for All Occasions
Why does your child need a sleep cap? Well… not all kids do.
But if your child has curly-whirly hair, wears braids or is of African heritage, sleep caps and swim caps are just what they need to keep those crowns of joy in good condition. We spend a few hours every couple of weeks braiding our daughters’ hair. If they didn’t use sleep caps, we would be spending every weekend braiding. Instead, the girls protect their braids with caps and we can spend our time having fun!
Sleep caps are a waste product, made from the textile offcuts from the Italian and Chinese swimsuit industries.
To keep your caps fresh and stretchy, wash them in cold/ warm water with a gentle soap, rinse, and lay them flat or hang them to dry.
Sleep caps are bathing suit fabric, so please never use bleach or put them in the dryer.
Swim caps are silicone, so please wash them after each exposure to chlorine.
We suggest you have minimum three caps for a child. One is for sleep and naps and the second is for when the first one is in the laundry. The third is to keep in the car – ooo, that nasty car seat mesh!
We use our sleep caps all the time! Here are our daughters in action:
For hitting the road and flying on planes
At nap time
On the road – caps under bike helmets
Special events – under hooded costumes
