Sleep 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, a sleep cap is 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 sleep caps and we can spend our time having fun!
These sleep caps are a waste product, made from the textile offcuts from the Italian and Chinese swimsuit industries.
Sleep Cap Care
Sleep caps have the same care as bathing suits, as they are the same material. Use gentle soaps, and wash them by hand or in cold water. Never use bleach or put them in the dryer! Lay them flat or hang them on the line for a lovely fresh-air sent.
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
At bed time (setting out cookies for Santa!)
On the road – caps under bike helmets
Outdoor play – caps under winter hats
Dress-up – under wigs and hats
Special events – under hooded costumes
